Perineoplasty in Houston, TX
The perineum is the section of skin between your anus and vagina. Skin tears in the perineum are common during childbirth. These injuries can often result in scarring. At North Cypress Women’s Center, board-certified (gynecological) surgeon Dr. Farhina Imtiaz offers perineoplasty for women in Houston and surrounding areas of Texas, including Cypress, Sugarland, and Katy.
What is Perineoplasty?
Perineoplasty is a procedure that repairs and restores the section of skin between the vagina and anus. The area is prone to tearing during childbirth. Scars may develop as part of the healing process. In addition to cosmetic concerns, a woman may experience a loosening of the vagina.
When performed by our board-certified (gynecological) surgeon, Dr. Imtiaz, perineoplasty can:
- Soften scars
- Repair tears in the perineum tissue
- Restore vaginal tightness
Why is Perineoplasty Recommended?
Dr. Imtiaz may recommend perineoplasty for reconstructive or cosmetic reasons. Reconstruction is typically performed shortly after childbirth before the perineum heals. Many women do not have the surgery after childbirth and seek out the expertise of Dr. Imtiaz for perineoplasty years later.
How is Perineoplasty Performed?
Perineoplasty is an outpatient procedure that Dr. Imtiaz performs at our facility. For most patients, a light sedative and local anesthesia is adequate. Dr. Imtiaz removes any damaged tissue and tightens the vaginal muscles and soft tissue with sutures. The procedure takes under an hour.
During your consultation, Dr. Imtiaz will talk with you about your concerns with your vaginal area. After a physical examination, she will recommend whether perineoplasty, as well as other vaginal rejuvenation procedures, are right for you.
Although perineoplasty is a relatively simple procedure, you will have some downtime for three to five days. In order to heal properly, you will need to avoid certain activities, including sex.
How Much Does Perineoplasty Cost in Houston?
In the majority of cases, perineoplasty is an elective procedure, so the cost is not covered under insurance. After your consultation, our patient coordinator will review the cost of the procedure and our payment options, including cash, major credit card and CareCredit® financing.
Is Perineoplasty Right for Me?
If you are concerned with vaginal looseness or the appearance of your perineum, perineoplasty may be right for you. When you meet with Dr. Imtiaz for a consultation, she will help you understand how the procedure will benefit you.
