Why do women need to go for perineoplasty?
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.
Wider Opening of Vagina
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.
Aging and Obesity
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.
Frequent infections in the Vagina and Urinary Track
Another reason that is found common in women is a recurring infection in the vagina as well as increased frequency of UTI. This is because the reduced space between the anus and the vagina can cause harmful bacteria to travel towards the vagina and urethra.
