The perineum is the area of tissue between the vagina and anus. Childbirth, especially if repeated, can lead to tearing of the perineal tissue. Often enough, the healing of this tearing leads to uneven scarring of the perineum. This problem eventually ends with a state of vaginal looseness and slackness.
What is Perineoplasty?
Perineoplasty constitutes part of the trilogy of `Vaginal Rejuvenation” alongside Vaginoplasty and Labiaplasty. This is an aesthetic procedure designed to improve the appearance of female`s genitalia and boost pleasure by re-building up the perineum and perineal body in order to return the area to its pre-pregnancy state, rebuilding and tightening the muscles as well as changing the vaginal angle to provide for greater pressure during intercourse.
Perineoplasty can be performed as a single surgery. Nevertheless, it is usually done in conjunction with Vaginoplasty to maximize the benefits.
How can Perineoplasty help and who is a candidate?
This highly-skillful procedure addresses both cosmetic and sexual issues related to the perineum, which makes it doubly effective and worth considering if you do have a complaint.
The procedure is often requested by women who have given birth, especially if repeatedly, with the perineal tissues being subjected to tearing during the childbirth or purposely cut (= episiotomy) by a doctor in order to make room for the infant’s head to pass. Despite the healing, some more extensive perineal injuries can lead to a cosmetically disfigured genital area, a gaping opening of the vagina, with loose and slake vaginal tissue.
About the procedure itself
For your convenience, Perineoplasty is a day-care surgery which means that hospitalization is not needed. The procedure is usually done under general anesthesia, lasting for 30 – 45 minutes, and within a few hours you can be safely sent back home. Oral antibiotic course will be prescribed and despite the fact that post-operative pain is not that much, an oral pain-killer is prescribed.
The recovery phase is usually fast with many women able to return to `light` work within a few days after the procedure. Full recovery is expected within 4 weeks and resumption of intercourse can be within 5 -6 weeks.
Perineoplasty, done by a talented and skilled surgeon, has the capability of restoring the normal function and appearance of the perineum, thus giving women a renewed sense of self-contentment and confidence, alongside a more-pleasing sexual intimacy.
