The Perineum is the area of tissue between the vagina and the rectum. Childbirth can cause tearing and scarring of the perineal tissue. Oftentimes, the healing process of these tears leads to uneven scarring and disfiguration of the perineum. This condition often results in vaginal looseness.
Perineoplasty is a surgical procedure to tighten the entrance of the vagina or correct damage to perineal tissue. This surgery repairs the damage and resurfaces the tissue in order to return the area to its ‘normal’ state. The procedure also rebuilds and tightens muscles. The entrance of the vagina will be narrowed, providing the additional benefit of vaginal tightness for intercourse.
