A recent New York Magazine infographic brought to light the impressive evolution of prosthetics, which as of April includes vaginas.

The piece documents advancements in regenerative medicine over the years. During an interview Wednesday, the author Matthew Giles explained to HuffPost Live’sRicky Camilleri how exactly these artificial vaginas are created.

“You’re taking cells from external private partia and you’re creating … this scaffolding that you place the cells on, and then you implant it to actually create the cavity, and the body takes to it,” Giles said. “Two of the four women that have undergone this procedure at Wake Forest [University] were able to menstruate.”
