Hymenoplasty, or the reconstruction of the hymen, is a simple procedure to repair a torn hymen or to build a hymen that is not present. A thin layer of tissue that encloses the vaginal area, the hymen lining can sometimes break easily from vigorous activities such as horseback riding, gymnastics or even tampon insertion.
Some women may also opt to undergo this procedure due to various religious and cultural reasons that traditionally consider an intact hymen as a mark of virginity. However, it is important to understand that hymenoplasty will not restore virginity, but rather it allows women to tear and bleed during the first intercourse after surgery.
Do you experience these issues?
✅ You have a strong desire to recover the original status of your hymen due to religious reasons. ✅ You’d like to ensure that your hymen is intact during intercourse on your matrimonial night. ✅ You have had sexual intercourse before and you’d like to have your mark of virginity back.
We understand that discussing the nature of this surgery can be uncomfortable for some patients. At H-II, we treat our patients without any prejudice and full of dignity. This surgical procedure will be performed under local anesthesia and usually takes about 30 minutes to 1 hour. The patient will be required to lay comfortably on a table with the legs spread apart. The hymen will be identified.
For torn hymen,
our surgeon will remove uneven tissue from previous tearing. The hymen will be sutured together in two layers using dissolvable stitches to leave a slight opening.
For women without any hymen remnants,
our surgeon will create a new hymen lining that mimics a natural hymen by extracting a small portion of the vaginal tissue.
The goal of our innovative hymenoplasty procedure is to restore the appearance of the hymen and bring back your mark of virginity.
There should be a very minimal pain after the surgical procedure. Patient should expect bruising and swelling for 2-4 weeks post-surgery. Some post-surgery guidelines to keep in mind include:
- Maintain the hygiene of the recovery area by gently washing with soap and water regularly.
- Take the antibiotics and medication as prescribed by our surgeon to prevent infection and complications.
- Apply warm compresses or ice packs onto the recovery area to ease the swelling and discomfort.
- You may take a bath about 2-3 days after the surgical procedure.
- Abstain from sexual intercourse for 6-8 weeks after hymenoplasty surgery and avoid heavy lifting or strenuous activities until the 6th week to allow for optimal healing and to prevent the new hymen from tearing.
- Patient may return to work the day after hymen repair surgery and resume light exercise a week after surgery.
