If aging, natural vaginal delivery, and/or an episiotomy have affected the tissue in your perineum, you’re certainly not alone. Damage to the tissue in this area may diminish your confidence in intimate settings and cause a looser fit with your partner during intercourse. However, with the perineoplasty procedure, it’s possible to regain the former look and feel of the perineum.
What is the Perineum?
The perineum is the area between the vaginal floor and the rectum. With natural vaginal deliveries and/or episiotomies, the perineum may become stretched and even torn. The aging process can also cause the perineum to lose elasticity and no longer have a youthful appearance.
The Perineoplasty Procedure
Perineoplasty is a procedure that can rejuvenate the perineum to improve both its appearance and sensation during sex. Also called perineorrhaphy, this treatment may be performed either by itself or during vaginal rejuvenation to repair and restore the tissues of the perineum. Dr. Hayes at the Visionary Centre for Women performs perineoplasty using either a laser or an Ellman device that emits radiofrequency energy.
The Benefits of Perineoplasty
Perineoplasty can offer multiple benefits to women who have stretched or damaged tissue in the perineum, including:
Correction of scar tissue and/or uneven gaping of the perineum
When the tissues of the perineum tear, typically due to childbirth, the repair process can result in scarring and uneven gaping. Perineoplasty helps restore a tight, healthy, and even appearance of the perineum to restore a woman’s confidence after the tissues have been damaged.
Restoration of the appearance of the perineum
Perineoplasty can restore the youthful appearance of the tissue in the perineum. By stimulating the natural repair process in the affected tissues, this procedure tightens the perineum for a rejuvenated look.
Tighter vaginal entry for improved sexual satisfaction
The effects of childbirth and/or aging on the perineum can loosen the vaginal entry. This leads to less friction during sex for both partners, which can diminish your sexual satisfaction. By tightening and repairing the vaginal tissues, perineoplasty can improve sexual gratification.
