Anoplasty

Anoplasty involves reconstruction of the anus and is most often performed to correct anal stenosis, which is a narrowing of the anal canal that causes painful bowel movements.

  • General anesthesia is typically used
  • Procedure involves stretching or enlarging the opening where stool drains
  • May include the use of skin flaps as part of the reconstruction
  • Surgery may include closing of fistulas (small tube-like openings)
  • Procedure restores normal functioning of the anus
