Perineoplasty - Understanding the Procedure & Benefits.

Achieve a new level of confidence with Perineoplasty

What is Perineoplasty and How Can it Help You?

Do you feel self-conscious about the appearance or functionality of your vaginal area? If so, perineoplasty may be the answer. This minimally invasive procedure can help restore a woman’s confidence by improving her anatomy and function in this important area. 

Here, we’ll explain what exactly perineoplasty is and how it can benefit you.

Perineoplasty (also called posterior repair) is a surgical procedure that repairs damage to the muscles located between the vagina and rectum (the “perinea”). 

The goal of a perineal repair is to tighten or reposition these muscles for improved aesthetics or better urinary control. It typically takes less than an hour to perform, depending on the complexity of each individual case. In some cases, additional treatments such as labiaplasties are recommended following this surgery to achieve optimal results.

Performing a Perineoplasty Safely

Most women also face loose vaginal muscles along with damaged perineum, both vaginoplasty, tightening of the muscles along the vaginal canal, and perineoplasty are performed together for them.

During a typical perinial repair procedure, your doctor will make small incisions along the sides of your vaginal opening near the anus (this helps minimize scarring). 

They will then separate your rectum from your vagina and the surrounding muscles, allowing them to tighten or reposition these muscles as needed. 

Finally, your doctor will stitch up the incisions and apply a sterile dressing before sending you home.

 

What Are The Benefits Of Perineoplasty?

Perineoplasty can help improve both aesthetics and function of your vaginal area in several ways:

A perinial repair can help strengthen weakened pelvic floor muscles which may have caused urine leakage when laughing, coughing or exercising. This procedure can also help women who have difficulty controlling their bladder during intercourse due to stretched or damaged tissues in this area.

 

Perinial repair is commonly used to reduce excess skin around the vagina (known as “labiaplasties”) for improved aesthetics. 

It can also be used to correct any asymmetry that might exist between the left and right labia majora (the two outer lips of skin). Additionally, it helps restore tightness which may affect sexual satisfaction for both partners.

Labiaplasty revision & reconstruction can help to improve a woman’s confidence and self-esteem.

The procedure involves correcting previous labiaplasty procedures that produced undesirable outcomes, which can include feelings of self-consciousness and insecurity about the appearance of one’s genitalia. 

By improving the appearance and function of the labia, patients may experience an increase in self-esteem and a boost in their confidence. 

This can positively impact various aspects of their lives, including relationships and sexual experiences

 

Women often report feeling more confident after undergoing a perineal repair procedure due to improved physical appearance and function of their genital area. 

It’s important to note that this surgery should not be used as a substitute for addressing underlying mental health issues, but it can be an important part of the healing process.

Risks Associated With Perineoplasty

As with any surgery, there are some risks associated with perinal repair that you should consider before opting to have this procedure done. 

These include infection, bleeding, scarring and nerve damage (which may lead to numbness or reduced sensation in your genital area). 

Additionally, some women experience difficulty urinating or defecating after the surgery due to swelling in their pelvic region. 

However, these symptoms typically subside within a few weeks as the swelling goes down.

FAQ

There are a few reasons for performing this treatment. One of the main reasons is the wider opening of the vagina along with loose muscles on the posterior opening of the vagina. This can also be combined with loose muscles between the vagina and the rectum area.

The main reason for having this loosening of muscle tissue and the wider opening is going through one or multiple vaginal deliveries. These deliveries have been very destructive to the perineum tissues. Usually, women are not stitched up as they are supposed to after the delivery and therefore, with passing time, the torn muscles loosen up.

The perineum muscles can also loosen up with age and due to obesity. Even though these are rare cases, but they also are the reasons for having loose muscles down there.

Women who want a smoother appearance around the vulva, which they had before the perineal tissue was damaged, would go for perineoplasty. They would want a smaller vaginal opening to experience the sexual intimacy as they had before with their partner. The base of the vaginal opening creates sensation for both male and female partners, and loose muscles in that area can cause reduced sexual intimacy during intercourse.

 

It is a day’s procedure. Patients do not need to stay overnight, just a few hours. It is done under local anesthesia and it takes around 45 minutes to an hour to perform this procedure.

 

It takes about 5 to 7 days for women to recover from this surgery. They can get back to their normal routine in the next couple of days post-surgery, but they need to also take precautions until the sutures dissolve and fall off, which is for the next 4 to 6 weeks.

 

Avoiding any sort of penetration into the vagina – which includes having sexual intimacy, tampons or menstrual cups etc.

  • Try to maintain a healthy diet to avoid constipation
  • Refrain from any strenuous activity like bending too much and lifting heavy objects
  • Take the medication prescribed to you on time
