What Is Perineoplasty: Understanding Perineum Surgery in Malaysia

Perineoplasty, also known as Perineorrhaphy, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that helps to reshape and tighten the perineum, which is the part between the vaginal opening and the anus that might have been torn or changed during childbirth.

The most common reason for getting this procedure is to reduce the size of the vaginal opening where the skin has become damaged or overstretched, and to tighten and tone the area by removing excess scar tissue and skin.

Perineoplasty is a surgical procedure to repair or reconstruct the perineum. Perineum surgery in Malaysia is performed using minimally invasive surgical techniques under local anaesthesia that allow for faster and less visible scars. The steps are:

  • Your doctor makes a small V-shaped or diamond-shaped incision at your vaginal opening.
  • Next, they cut out excess skin or scar tissue and repair the deeper muscle layers around your vagina.
  • Finally, the edges of the incision are closed with stitches.

Perineoplasty is an outpatient procedure and usually takes about an hour. After a few hours of observation by the doctor, you can leave the clinic.

Benefits of Perineoplasty

Perineoplasty, or in simple words, ‘perineum repair’ surgery, offers several potential benefits, including:

  1. Restoration of the Vagina’s Shape
    Restores the correct shape of the vagina through the tightening of the vagina opening, which has been deformed due to injuries, in particular injuries associated with the delivery and perinatal processes.
  2. Strengthened Perineum
    Help strengthens and tones the perineal muscles, reducing weakness or sagging of the perineum.
  3. Improved Aesthetic Results
    Reduces the presence of unsightly scars and loose skin around the vagina, leading to a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.
  4. More Enjoyable & Pain-Free Sexual Experience
    Leads to increased sexual satisfaction by addressing concerns such as pain and discomfort during sexual intercourse due to perineal tears or scarring.
  5. Improved Self-Esteem
    Boosts self-esteem and body confidence, particularly if individuals were self-conscious about the appearance or function of their perineum, contributing to a more satisfied sexual well-being.

What problems can Perineoplasty treat?

Perineoplasty may be unfamiliar to some, but as discussed earlier, it involves a minor surgical procedure to enhance and restore the anatomy of the perineum, which can be affected by childbirth or aging.

A perineoplasty surgery aims to address several range of issues or concerns. These issues include:

  1. The presence of unsightly scar after rupture and sewing of the perineum
  2. Difficulty emptying the bowels or urinary incontinence
  3. Recurrent vaginal infections
  4. Pain during penetration due to perineal tears or scarring
  5. Soreness due to friction against clothing, eg. underwear
  6. Weakened muscles in the perineal area due to childbirth or any other injuries

Precautions before undergoing Perineoplasty

Following a perineoplasty, it’s crucial that you adhere to specific postoperative guidelines for a successful recovery:

  1. No Vaginal Insertion
    Refrain from using tampons and engaging in sexual intercourse for a minimum of 2 weeks
  2. Limit Your Physical Activities
    Avoid heavy lifting or strenuous exercises for at least 10 days to support proper healing
  3. Hydration and Fiber
    Stay well-hydrated and take a fiber-rich diet to prevent constipation. Consider using a stool softener if neededg

Side effects of undergoing Perineoplasty

As with most procedures, your body needs time to heal after a perineoplasty. During the first few days, it’s common to experience pain, swelling, bruises, discomfort and burning in the surgical area. The skin usually heals without complications, and there are no scars.

Expected downtime of Perineoplasty

The downtime is around 10-14 days which involves a period of reduced activity to promote proper healing. Some doctors suggest using ice and pain relievers. Soaking the perineal area in warm water can provide soothing relief during the early weeks of your recovery. Keep the area clean and dry. Stitches should dissolve on their own within a few weeks.

  1. Are vaginoplasty and perineoplasty the same?
    No, they aren’t the same. Vaginoplasty is to tighten or repair your vaginal canal (the inside part of your vagina). On the other hand, a perineoplasty only helps to restore function and tightness to the muscles at the opening of your vagina and perineum.
  2. Why does my perineal feel loose?
    The perineum can become badly stretched, particularly in childbirth. It may have been torn during delivery and required stitching. The stitching may have been badly done, leaving a lot of scarring.
  3. Will perineoplasty cause any complications if I plan to get pregnant again?
    No. Perineoplasty will not cause any complications for your next pregnancy if you do plan on getting pregnant again.
