What is Perineum and Pelvic Floor Repair?

When a bad tear occurs during birth or there has been poor stitching, the area between the vagina and the rectum can look disfigured when healed. This can affect confidence and cause discomfort during intercourse.

In some cases, it can lead to weakness in the pelvic floor and lax muscles, presenting problems in urinary function and, in worst cases, can even cause incontinence.

The good news is that surgery can make a massive difference to the way you look and feel, restoring both the cosmetic appearance of the perineum as well as the muscle tone deep in the pelvic floor and vaginal muscles.

What can I expect from my surgery?

Frequently Asked Questions

Following your surgery you may experience some mild discomfort and swelling but this will usually disappear completely one or two weeks. Many of our patients go back to work after one week but your surgeon will advise you to refrain from exercise, driving and sexual intercourse until full healing has taken place.

Most of our patients opt to undergo this procedure under general anaesthetic so you will feel no pain. After your surgery, any pain or discomfort you may experience will be controlled with medication provided by your doctor and this will usually subside within a few days.

Prices begin at £6000 depending on your initial consultation with your expert cosmetic gynaecological surgeon.

Generally, there will be swelling and soreness after surgery which should subside in a week or two. After a couple of days you should be able to walk around comfortably. The final result may be a couple of months following surgery, but you are usually able to resume sexual activity and exercise within 4-6 weeks.

Any risks are the same as with any other surgical procedure that involves a general anaesthetic if this is what you choose to have. Apart from possible bleeding and infection which is not common, there are no specific risks to be concerned about but your surgeon will explain this procedure to you in detail at your consultation.

Perineum and Pelvic Floor Repair is a cosmetic surgery treatment to restore both the cosmetic appearance of the perineum as well as the muscle tone deep in the pelvic floor and vaginal muscles which may have been damaged during childbirths.
