DRHC Dubai Gynecology Clinic

Perineoplasty - DRHC Dubai Obstetrics and Gynecology Clinic

A plastic surgery procedure is done to correct or repair damage or defect of the vagina and puerperium or vulva.

Perineal damage can be due to:

  • Childbirth

The stretching of parturition can cause tears to the tissue or might request cutting (episiotomy). Should the woman’s birth canal prone too narrow to allow unobstructed passage of the baby more over the perineal tissue that presents either cut or tear can heal and fuse together before the suture dissolves?

  • Obesity

It can over-stretch and damage the structure of the perineum and can also stress and cause separation of the perineal muscles.

  • Sexual penetration
  • Inadequate innervation

    Either absence of nerves or too few nerves.


  • Women will report a feeling of looseness in their vulvovaginal area with decreased sexual satisfaction compared to the incidence before perineal damage.
  • Women following bariatric surgeries after losing so much of their weight will have loose vulva perineal skin and tissue.
  • Dyspareunia (Following deliveries). Painful intercourse due to episiotomy wound healing causes a very tight vagina due to over-suturing.



V-shaped incision made in the posterior wall of the vagina.

Can be straight or curved or angled upwards, usually determined by the degree of vaginal tightening to be achieved.

Any existing scar tissue will be removed.

Correction may include correction of the damaged pelvic muscles and other perineal muscles.
