Dear Tedalia,

Vaginoplasty revisions are done here regularly.  We will evaluate your urethral length and may spatulate it anteriorly and posteriorly to give you the look you are seeking. Regarding vaginal depth and atresia, you should anticipate a surgical depth of your height in feet as expressed in inches and your height in inches as expressed as a fraction over 12.  So if you are 5 feet 9 inches tall, anticipate a depth of 5″ plus 9/12″ or about 5 and 3/4″.of depth.  Clitoral hoods are fairly easy to do

You can initiate a consultation on the phone.
