Vaginoplasty: What You Can't Find on the Internet but Need to Know

Saturday, June 20, 2020 at 9:35 AM–10:55 AM Pacific Time (US & Canada)
6 - Sierra 6
Workshop Description

This workshop is a panel with 3 surgeons discussing experiences before and after vaginoplasty that patients are often not well informed about. The discussion handles hair removal, WPATH requirements, bowel prep, immediate and long term postoperative care including the normal healing process, complications, dilating, pelvic pain, sex and embarrassing questions we hope everyone will ask. This includes discussing anatomy and functioning and tries to give a realistic approach to healing up from vaginoplasty mentally and physically.
