Perineoplasty or Perinealplasty

Perineoplasty or Perinealplasty

General Notes and Precautions

THINGS ABOUT THE PERINEOPLASTY YOU SHOULD KNOW

  • Perineoplasty is a surgical procedure restoring torn perineum muscles (the visible area located between the rectum and the vagina). Perineoplasty surgery does not go deep into the vagina but intends to repair the damage of childbirth or tearing right at the opening of the vagina (the depth of not over 2-3 centimeters).
  • It aims to make this region appear normal by excising excess skin, loose skin tags, and suturing the underlying muscles or the perineal body closer together to give a more snug feeling in the introitus or vaginal opening. Mostly, the perineoplasty is performed together with posterior vaginal repair.
  • Like any other surgeries, the Perineoplasty /Perinealplasty has limitations and cannot absolutely ensure results and satisfaction because there are many other factors affecting the surgery’s success.
  • Informing the spouse or partner is recommended. Abstinence from sexual intercourse for 6-8 weeks is required for this surgery.
  • In case of unexpected surgical results or complications, corrective surgery is an option and will be discussed between you and the physician.

BEFORE THE PERINEOPLASTY SURGERY

  • Dr. Vitasna will investigate your Health History, conduct a general check-up and internal check-up.
  • Vaginal, fungal or bacterial infection should be treated before the procedure to avoid post-operative wound infection.
  • The procedure is not recommended to those who have immunodeficiency and must not become pregnant nor plan to become pregnant in the next 3 months despite no research about the disadvantage to the pregnancy and the newborn.
  • In case of existing diseases or drug allergies, please inform the staff before the procedure.
  • Dr. Vitasna will educate you with the processes of the procedure and some potential post-operative complications prior to decision-making.
