Service 6Perineoplasty

Perineum is the name of the area that lies anatomically between the vulva and the rectum. In the procedure of a normal childbirth most of the times it is required that a perineotomy is performed, that is an incision at this area, so that the baby’s head can appear.

The procedure of perineotomy many times damages a large part of the tissues of the area causing problems to its normal function and the restoration of the area is not easy, due to its oedema (swelling) and hyperaemia.

Over time is observed the common effect in new mothers of the relaxation of the perineum area and of the increase of the diameter of the vagina as a deformity of the skin, particularly at the area that lies between the vagina and the anus, causing problems to the normal function of the area.

Perineoplasty or the plastic reconstruction of the perineum restores the tissues and the muscles in the perineum area that have been damaged. The plastic surgery for the reconstruction of the perineum is a simple surgical procedure. It is performed with the use of Laser beams and aims at the tightening of the relaxation and the correction of the scars and deformities in the area, strengthening the perineum.

Its duration is approximately 45 minutes and it can be performed with local, general or epidural anaesthesia and it is not required to stay in the clinic. The return to your everyday life is immediate but sexual intercourse and exercise are allowed after 5-6 weeks.

How is perineoplasty performed?

Perineoplasty is performed with the use of a special Laser and the loose and excess folding skin is removed from the area. The very thin sutures that are placed are absorbed by the human body within a short time period. The surgery is performed with absolute precision, in order to achieve the proper anatomic restoration of the area.

With what kind of anaesthesia is the perineoplasty surgery performed?

Perineoplasty is principally performed with local anaesthesia and it is not required to stay in the clinic. The recovery is easy and fast.
