The area between the vagina and anus is called the “perineum”. Perineoplasty is a cosmetic procedure to reshape the perineum and vaginal opening. Perineoplasty is regarded as tightening of the external genital, commonly interchangeable with the broad term “vaginal rejuvenation”. Furthermore, perineoplasty can be in depth for reconstructive purpose involving removal of scar tissue, if present from episiotomy or lacerations from childbirth and muscle plication to yield an aesthetic appearance.
Perineoplasty is performed with local anesthesia in a surgical suite, downtime is minimal, and routine postoperative care for vaginal surgery is suggested. No strenuous activity and nothing inside the vagina after post-procedure.
