A blanket term for surgery to either construct or reconstruct a vagina. The procedure is formally termed neovaginoplasty in cases when a vagina did not previously exist, as is the case of XX females with congenital vaginal atresia (balloon vaginoplasty), Müllerian agenesis (Vecchietti procedure), or XY males seeking sexual reassignment (penile inversion) or Wilson procedure. The procedure is reconstructive when the vagina is damaged or lost due to trauma, cancer or radiation. Finally, there is non-constructive/non-reconstructive ‘cosmetic’ vaginoplasty, more commonly known as vaginal rejuvenation, in which the mucocutaneous tissue of the labia and lower vagina are partially excised and tightened
