Perineorrhaphy is a surgical procedure that repairs the perineum. The perineum is the area between the anus and vulva in females. A perineorrhaphy can repair tears in this area or correct problems such as prolapse of pelvic organs. The recovery time after perineorrhaphy surgery is different for each person. The amount of time it takes to recover from the surgery depends on age, health, and activity level. Your doctor will tell you to avoid doing heavy activities for up to four weeks. The average time for complete recovery is between 7 to 8 weeks.
