An episiotomy is a surgical incision made in the perineum (the area between the vagina and the anus) during childbirth to facilitate the delivery of the baby and reduce the risk of uncontrolled tearing. Although episiotomy was once routinely performed during childbirth, today it is done only when medically justified. The healing process of this incision can lead to the formation of a scar that is sometimes painful, uncomfortable, or aesthetically unsatisfactory for some women.
Women experiencing unpleasant symptoms associated with an episiotomy scar, such as pain, itching, discomfort during sexual intercourse, or aesthetic concerns, can consult with a gynecologist or surgeon to assess the condition of the scar and discuss treatment options.


When the episiotomy scar causes significant symptoms or discomfort, surgical scar correction may be an option. This procedure, often performed under local anesthesia, involves surgically removing scar tissue and carefully re-suturing the perineal tissue to improve the appearance and/or function of the perineum.
Scar correction can help reduce pain, improve tissue elasticity and sexual function, as well as enhance the aesthetic appearance of the perineum. It is important to have realistic expectations and understand that while correction can significantly improve symptoms and appearance, completely “erasing” of the scar may not be possible. For women considering correction of an episiotomy scar, it is essential to thoroughly discuss with the specialist all aspects of the procedure, including potential risks, expected recovery, and long-term results.
