Another procedure that can be performed on its own or as a part of your vaginoplasty is a perineoplasty. The perineum is the section of tissue that extends between your vagina and rectum. In some cases, childbirth can cause the perineum to tear, and whether the tear heals on its own or is stitched up, scars or disfigurement can occur. In some cases, excess weight and the aging process can also cause over-stretching of the tissues and damage to the perineum. Whether it is due to childbirth or other factors, any damage to the perineum can contribute to vaginal looseness and other symptoms similar to those experienced by women seeking vaginoplasty.

Perineoplasty is a surgical procedure designed to repair the muscles of both the perineum and vaginal opening, strengthening the area overall and tightening the muscles of the vaginal opening. The treatment not helps restore the tissue and muscles of the perineum to a tighter, more youthful state, and can restore the appearance that may have been marred by uneven healing or scars from childbirth.
