Perineoplasty / Perineorrhaphy Surgery in NYC
What is perineoplasty?
The perineum is a small muscle located between the rectum and the vagina, which creates structure in the pelvic floor and prevents uterus, bladder, or rectum prolapse. The muscle can be injured or torn during childbirth or sexual trauma. Sometimes, a surgical procedure known as an episiotomy is done during childbirth, during which a doctor makes a small incision into this muscle to help deliver the baby naturally. This can also cause damage to the perineum muscle, which can lead to serious medical problems as well as decreased sexual satisfaction.
A perineoplasty, sometimes called a perineorrhaphy, is a surgical procedure that helps to repair a damaged perineum muscle. Women suffering from a torn or stretched perineum may feel a “loosened” sensation and have trouble feeling sexual pleasure as a result. Perineoplasty tightens the damaged muscle which can, in turn, tighten the vaginal canal and can improve sexual pleasure.
When making the decision to undergo a perineoplasty, it is important to weigh your options and gather as much information as you can to make an informed decision. That is why New York Center for Aesthetic Rejuvenation is dedicated to providing our patients with one-on-one consultations that are confidential and informative to help you make the best decision for your needs and desired results.
Why is perineoplasty performed?
Perineum reconstructive surgery may be recommended for women who suffer from one or more of the following conditions:
- Lowered sexual friction or sensitivity
- Lowered sexual pleasure
- Widened vaginal opening or canal after childbirth or trauma
- Decreased self-confidence due to look and feel of vagina
- Difficulty reaching orgasm
- Difficulty becoming aroused
What does a perineoplasty involve?
At New York Center for Aesthetic Rejuvenation, we perform perineoplasty during a short surgical procedure, involving a small incision near the vaginal floor, during which the perineum muscle is reconstructed. This allows the muscles to tighten and in turn, reduces the size of the vaginal canal.
After surgery is complete, you will need to rest for a short period of time. Specific post-surgical instructions will be provided by your surgeon at New York Center for Aesthetic Rejuvenation. You should be able to resume most of your daily activities within the next few weeks. Speak with your doctor for a full list of possible complications and specifics on what to expect before, during, and after your surgery.
