Anyone stitched up too tight after birth?

I'm new so forgive me for not knowing which forum to post this to . I did not give birth vaginally , I had a c section. However, I decided to have vaginoplasty done (tightening of the vaginal) and it has been made WAY too tight that my husband cannot get it in . I'm incredibly frustrated.

I've read about women who tear during birth and get stitched back up however sometimes too small. I'm just looking for some encouragement as I cannot see how this can be reversed and I'm worried I've destroyed my vagina sad

So for anyone who got stitched too tight how was it corrected ?

I had a Fenton's procedure when my baby was 8 months - not because I was stitched too tight but because I was left with a lot of scar tissue which narrowed my vagina and made sex impossible. It hurt, but I recovered quickly and have been fine since.
