Perineoplasty is a type of plastic surgery to correct damage to the perineal area between the vagina and the anus. Let’s look at how that area can become damaged or deformed and how patients can benefit from a perineoplasty.

Women who have given birth vaginally and are experiencing vaginal looseness or itching, or decreased sexual sensation are the most common candidates for this procedure.

This surgery repairs the damage and resurfaces the tissue to return the area to its pre-pregnancy state. It aims to make this region appear normal by removing excess skin, loosening skin tags, and then suturing the underlying muscles or the perineal body closer together.

The procedure also rebuilds and tightens muscles. The entrance of the vagina will be narrowed, providing the additional benefit of vaginal tightness for intercourse.
