Posterior Repair

Posterior repairs are a type of surgery used to help reinforce or repair the fascial support layer between the vagina and the rectum. Many women who go through childbirth end up having to have this surgery done to help restore the posterior wall in their body. If you are unhappy with the changes that have occurred following pregnancy, you can schedule your surgery at an Ambulatory Surgery Center with I Need A Surgery today.

How do I know if I need posterior repair?

The main goal of the surgery is to help alleviate the symptoms of vaginal laxity or bulge, as well as improving or maintaining bowel functionality without causing a problem in sexual functions.

How is the posterior repair surgery performed?

Either a general, local or regional anesthetic is used, depending on your individual situation. An incision is made running from the top of the vagina to the back wall of the vagina. The skin is separated from the fascial tissue underneath. The weak tissue is paired with dissolvable sutures that disappear in about one to five months. Deep sutures are placed into the underlying muscles to help build the perineal body. The skin that lies over the area is then closed up with dissolvable sutures that go away within four to six weeks.

A synthetic or biological mesh is often used to help repair the posterior wall. Packs are often put into the vagina, along with a catheter for the first few hours up to two days after the surgery. The surgery is often done along with a hysterectomy, incontinence surgery or anterior repair.

What is recovery like after posterior repair?

A drip is used to provide you with fluids while in the hospital. The surgeon will remove the catheter and the pack within two days of having the surgery. Don’t be alarmed if you get a creamy discharge for the first four weeks to six weeks following the procedure. As the sutures in the vagina dissolve, the discharge will cease.

How much does posterior repair cost?

I Need A Surgery can get you the procedure through the Surgery Center Network for $6,400, versus having to pay $64,000 if you were to book the procedure through the hospital on your own. Pricing is exclusive of any implants or other hardware and is only an average. Your actual cost might be higher or lower.
