Perineoplasty is a cosmetic surgery that repairs the perineum, or area between the vagina and anus. After birth, the perineum can be severely scarred, stretched, or torn. This is usually the result of a difficult vaginal delivery (dystocia), resulting in a vaginal incision and/or tearing during delivery. In these cases, this surgery is rarely done without the addition of other surgeries to repair this area.
This area may incur additional changes with aging, such as muscle weakness, further stretching, or separation. Perineoplasty can repair this damage and restore the central area of support for the vagina.
