Loose Skin at Perineum, Behind Labia Minora: Treatment Options
Loose skin between the vagina and the anus can develop naturally. Sometimes it is an overgrowth of the labia minora and might require a specially-designed labiaplasty for correction, in other cases it might require a mini-perineoplasty, and in other cases it might require just a small skin resection. Any or all of these can be done under local anesthesia, with or without sedation, at your preference.
Loose skin between vagina and anus
Hi there! I love cases such as yours because the surgical answer is quite simple with very little risk and downtime... And the result will be a resolution of something that has been bothering you for a long time. With some lidocaine and careful removal of the excess skin, you will have a natural looking scar in that area. There is normally a line between the vagina and the anus that forms naturally, and the scar will mimick that.
The loose skin can be easily removed under local anesthesia. It is a simple procedure with minimal post-operative discomfort.
Skin between vagina and anus
This skin is actually quite common and is basically and extension of the labia minora (inner lips. It is relatively straight forward to basically trim this tissue away under local anesthesia +/- light sedation. Glad to help...
What is this loose skin and what can I do about it?
Based upon review of your photo this is a normal variant that can come about because of deliveries, aging or just the way you were made. There is only a small defect and should be relatively straightforward to fix.
Loose skin between the vagina and the anus
As a gynecologist we see this all the time and treat this all the time.
Obviously I can only give you an opinion based on your picture but from what I can see the extra loose skin can easily be resected and then re-approximated. This is done under local anesthesia in our procedure room. The recovery although uncomfortable initially is rather quick.
This is a common issue with a simple fix.
describing is very common issue that should be pretty easily resolved. Without
any other concerns (such as loose muscles around the vaginal opening, for
example), your plastic surgeon can simply remove the excess skin. If you do
have additional cosmetic issues you’d like addressed (like undergoing
labiaplasty, for example), this excess skin can likely be removed at the same
time. My only advice is to be sure and visit a board certified plastic surgeon
who performs a wide range of genital rejuvenation procedures, so you can be
sure you’re in experienced hands. Best of luck.
Treating loose skin on the perineum
This is actually something I see quite often in my practice- sometimes it bothers patients, sometimes not. This extra "roll" of skin is on the perineum which is the area between the vagina and the anus. It is easily treated in an exam room under local anesthesia. Depending on the amount of excess skin to be removed and patient preference, the area may be excised and closed with dissolvable sutures or perineal resurfacing may be performed using a laser or radio frequency. Cheers!
Removing extra skin around the vagina
Excellent question. The extra skin immediately behind the vagina can be surgically reduced with minimal downtime and scarring. I often perform this procedure in an outpatient setting under local anesthesia.
The loose perineal tissue you show in the photo can probably be trimmed under local anesthesia. Consult in person so that you can be examined and a plan made to your desires. Best of luck.
