Perineoplasty, otherwise known as posterior vaginoplasty or perineorrhaphy, is a surgical procedure that addresses any defects, deformities, damages and imperfections of the anus and the vagina. This surgical vaginal tightening procedure is done by correcting and tightening the perineum - which is the region located between the vagina and the anus. Although it is a very small area, the perineum plays a vital role in being the structural support for many organs that are nearby, encapsulating the muscles that have an important role in tightening and loosening the vagina. The perineoplasty surgery precisely eliminates any scar tissue, bulges or lumps and excessive skin, and afterward tightening  the vagina and the perineal muscles.

Perineoplasty Surgery is an outpatient procedure that usually takes place for about 30 minutes to 60 minutes based on the extent of the concern. The procedure is performed utilising minimally invasive surgical strategies that permit quicker recuperating time and lesser noticeable scars. The perineum is usually anaesthetised locally first, however carrying out the treatment under general anesthesia is likewise possible. During the perineorrhaphy surgery, the abundant skin is taken out and the deep muscle layers are fixed, then the edges of the incision site are stitched back with sutures. Following a couple hours of observation by the surgeon, the patient will then be allowed to leave.
