During normal and sometimes vaginal delivery, incisions are made from the entrance of the vagina to the anus or leg to widen the entrance of the vagina so that the baby can exit the vagina more easily. These incisions, called episiotomies, not only allow the baby to pass easily through the vagina, but also prevent the formation of tears towards the anus and protect the surrounding tissues. However, the episiotomy site may be poorly healed or poorly repaired after delivery, resulting in scarring (scarring, scar tissue) that is uncomfortable for the mother. The scar in the area can cause the woman to lose her self-confidence, feel sexual reluctance due to her appearance, feel ashamed of her partner and avoid intercourse.
Factors Causing Obstetric Suture Scars to be Obvious
- Difficult births
- Inflammation of stitches after childbirth
- Failure of the birth stitches to hold and the incision site not healing
- Unrepaired perineal tears
- Deep perineal tears
How to Remove Birth Stitch Scars?
Perineoplasty : Birth suture scars can be corrected with a type of operation called perineoplasty (Perineoplasty). Perineal aesthetics provides aesthetic repair of the incisions in the body area between the outer lips and the anus, called the perineum. In addition, this operation helps the perineum to become much better functionally.
Vaginal Tightening : The enlargement, loosening or sagging of the vaginal canal with normal childbirth is known as vaginal relaxation syndrome. This syndrome can cause sexual reluctance and sexual dissatisfaction in both men and women. Vaginal relaxation syndrome, which occurs with the incision in the vagina after birth, is eliminated thanks to vaginal tightening surgeries, allowing the vagina to regain its pre-natal size and the birth stitch scars to be erased. However, a new birth after a vaginal tightening operation may cause the vagina to enlarge again.
Perineoplasty : Perineoplasty is an operation in which perineal correction, labiaplasty (inner lip aesthetics), clitoral hudoplasty, vaginal tightening and perineal aesthetic surgeries are all performed together. Perineoplasty, which is a functional type of surgery, not only improves the aesthetic appearance of the vagina, but also closes the vaginal opening, greatly reduces wrinkles on the labia majora and tightens the vaginal entrance.
