The perineoplasty procedure is a surgical repair of the area between the vaginal opening and the anus. This area is frequently vulnerable to damage, especially during childbirth. It can experience natural tears or episiotomies.
The treatment involves removal of excess skin and stitching the underlying muscles. The area is highly fortified and the opening to the vagina is narrowed. The procedure may result in an improved sexual functions and gratification from sexual activity.
Perineoplasty can restore the correct size of the perineum. The procedure is performed under local or general anesthesia. A small incision will be made in the vaginal opening, where the perineal tissue will be stitched back together. During recovery time, it is recommended to avoid activities such as heavy lifting, tampon use, and sexual intercourse.
