Hymenoplasty also referred to as hymen reconstruction or hymenorrhaphy, is a surgical procedure to restore the hymen temporarily. The procedure is not regarded as a gynecology procedure and is often categorized as plastic surgery as it is usually performed for non-medical reasons. Hymenoplasty is normally carried out to cause bleeding in post-nuptial intercourse because, in some cultures, it is considered as a sign of virginity.
Hymenoplasty is simple, non-invasive, and is mostly performed under local anesthetic, but under some circumstances, it may also be carried out under general anesthetic. Your doctor stitches a membrane, sometimes with a gelatin capsule with an artificial bloodlike substance, and the new hymen is made to match the real hymen.
Although hymenoplasty is an outpatient procedure, you should aim to stay in Gdansk for at least 5 to 7 days for your initial recovery and a follow-up hospital checkup. During the checkup, your surgeon will monitor your health and healing progress, and to remove any stitches if they did not use dissolving stitches.
Some patients can go back to work within a week, but the total recovery period until you are able to resume your full daily routine (including exercise and heavy lifting) can take at least 6 to 8 weeks. You should also avoid penetrative sex for about three months.
It is really important to keep your genital area dry and clean. Your doctor will give you a set of instructions regarding healing for the stitches, dietary restrictions, and exercises. It is best to avoid tampons and menstrual cup during and after your recovery period. Some activities can also rip or break the hymen, such as pelvic examinations, sexual intercourse, regular physical activities, gymnastics, or horseback riding.
Hymenoplasty is a relatively safe procedure with a high success rate. However, it carries some rare side effects and risks, including infection and prolonged bleeding. Occasionally, the procedure can also cause stricture or hymen overcorrection, making sexual intercourse difficult, but it is not a long-term problem.
There is currently no alternative to hymenoplasty as this procedure is the best option for people who want to reconstruct their hymen.
Before hymenoplasty, your hymen may be broken or ripped due to various reasons. After the procedure, your hymen will have a ‘new’ hymen intact.
