Hymenoplasty : hymen reconstruction surgery


What is hymenoplasty surgery?

Hymen reconstruction is a treatment and a surgical hymen restoration. The hymen is a membrane or a connective tissue that closes the entrance of the vagina, partially. It is also known as hymenorrhaphy or hymenoplasty. Other than intercourse, vigorous exercise or tampon insertion can cause the break of the hymen. Women possess different types of hymens depending on location, width, and thickness.

The surgery may be performed for a variety of personal reasons. However, medically speaking, experts maintain that the main benefit of the hymen reconstruction is to protect the vagina from bacteria penetration.

Hymenoplasty is recommended for females that have suffered sexual violence or sports injuries, have inserted tampons improperly, or have gone through unwanted sexual experience and thus lost their virginity.

The virginity restoration surgery is not recommended for females with diabetes, endometriosis, infectious diseases, poor blood clotting, venereal diseases, the presence of a cancerous tumor, and pregnancy.

Types of hymen reconstruction:

  • Short-term: the remains of the hymen are sewn, using thin and strong threads. It becomes tight and the entrance of the vagina is reduced. This procedure offers a short-term solution. The patient can have it several days before the upcoming defloration.
  • Long-term: The original plaque with the mucous membrane of the vestibule of the vagina is restored fully. The restored hymen can last up to three years.

How is hymen reconstruction done?

Before hymenoplasty surgery:

The surgeon performs a visual examination and writes the directions for the tests, such as general and biochemical blood tests, general analysis of urine, blood tests for hepatitis B and C, HIV, syphilis, and gynecological smear for the purity of flora, and a blood test for clotting. 

During hymen reconstruction surgery:

Hymen reconstruction is performed under general anaesthesia. The procedure takes about thirty minutes, during which the membrane is sewn by means of delicate stitches that dissolve on their own. Surgery should be performed two to three weeks prior to the next expected intercourse.

The surgeon will cut some or all of the membrane covering the opening of the vagina. The size of the incision depends on the patient’s needs and body structure.

The patient is placed in a lithotomy position. 2.5 cm long and 1 cm wide four vaginal mucosal flaps are raised from the anterior vaginal wall just behind labia minora. Two flaps are based proximally, and their two opposing flaps are based distally. These flaps are overlapped in a crisscross fashion and are sutured leaving no area raw. When some remains of a torn hymen were found, one to three vaginal mucosal flaps were added to its remains, according to the need for reconstruction.

Post-operative effects and recovery after hymen reconstruction:

The patient will remain under observation for about two hours after hymenoplasty.

Local hygiene should be maintained. Showering is recommended beginning on the day after surgery. Sexual intercourse is allowed after one month. It is advisable to wait for one to two months to resume sports. In hymen restoration surgery, the stitches dissolve on their own and a check-up is not needed. The membrane will look intact and there will be no scar or any evidence of the procedure. Although a short-term operation does not require an extended rehabilitation period, the recovery period can last for many days after long-term Hymenoplasty. During this time, the patient can feel the pulling pains.

For quick healing, you need to follow strict precautions, such as:

  • Prohibited bathing in open water and swimming pools,
  • You can take only a shower,
  • Avoid physical activity and sudden movements,
  • Sexual intercourse is strictly prohibited during the healing period
  • Strongly Adhere to a diet as recommended by the doctor. Try to consume only light and liquid foods as far as possible.
  • Wearing ample clothing and avoiding intense efforts (sport, stairs) during the first month.
  • The intimate cleansing is to be performed twice a day bath seat with a usual antiseptic.


Results of the hymenoplasty surgery:

The hymenoplasty result is natural and sustainable. When the patient has intercourse after surgery, she will feel the same as having an original virgin membrane.
