What risks are associated with perineum and pelvic floor surgery?
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.
Sometimes during a difficult birth, damage can be caused to the area between the vagina and the rectum. When a bad tear has occurred or there has been poor stitching, the area can look disfigured when healed.
