Perineoplasty / Perineorrhapy

The visible area between the vagina and the rectum is called the perineum. This is the region where episiotomies are cut and where tears during childbirth are most common. Perineoplasty (or Perineorrhaphy) 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. The procedure almost always accompanies vaginoplasty since you are working in the same area. This procedure takes 10 to 15 minutes to perform.
