In brief: Repair of Perineum

The perineum the area between the opening of the vagina and the anus.
A perineoplasty is usually done to treat vestibulitis or to repair damage from childbirth. When the procedure is done for vestibulitis, the skin of the perineum containing the vestibular glands and the defect is repaired. When it is done for a "gaping vagina" following childbirth, the damaged perineal muscles are repaired.
