A vaginal repair is an operation to lift up and strengthen the walls of the vagina to restore its normal support. It is also known as colporrhaphy.
Typically, an incision is made through the vaginal wall from the inside. The outside walls of the vagina are lifted up and attached to pelvic ligaments for support. The incision is then sewn up inside using dissolvable stitches.
Occasionally the operation is done through an incision made in the skin of the abdomen, just above the pubic hair line.
The operation usually lasts about an hour and generally requires a hospital stay of two or three days.
