- Vaginoplasty Prep & Recovery
Vaginoplasty Prep & Recovery
We aim to create a welcoming place for our transgender, nonbinary, and gender nonconforming patients. Although all of our PTs have expertise in pelvic floor physical therapy for people with natal vaginas, many also specialize in treating specific concerns associated with neo vaginas pre and post-vaginoplasty.
Whether you’re preparing for surgery, recovering, or experiencing other pelvic floor concerns, our PTs will provide you with expert guidance and unwavering support.

Your PT will help you improve mobility, reduce pain, and achieve goals related to exercise, daily activities, or participation in sex and intimacy. Treatment may include:
Think of your PT as the instruction manual for your new anatomy after a vaginoplasty, as well as your expert guide to healing — which will take time. Recovery from surgery takes about 6 weeks, but it may take several months to feel fully adjusted.
First and foremost, your PT will sit down with you and ask how you’re feeling and what your goals are for feeling your best. In many cases, physical assessments include looking at your spine and pelvis, your posture, and the way you move — for example, how you walk and squat. Depending on your concerns, a pelvic floor exam can be helpful, but will only occur if and when you’re ready for it. Pelvic exams begin with an external assessment and, if needed, progress to an internal assessment, via the rectum or vagina.
Once cleared by your surgeon, a PT can help you progress your dilator regimen, work on any muscle tension or restriction, care for your scars, and support you as you return to regular activities like exercise and sex.
People with vaginas can have various types of pelvic floor dysfunction throughout their lifetimes (pain with sex, urinary issues, and constipation to name a few). Regardless of your surgical history, we’re here to support you in feeling your best.
Our PTs take a full-body approach to providing care, so they’ll be ready to jump in and assess that ache in your back or knee pain while you run, too.
