What do you think about the hymen recovery surgery? Is it useful?
Aug 21, 2014

Dr. Rania Mousa General Medicine
In a medical point of view hymenoplasty or revirgination refers to the comestic surgery that restores your hymen. Hymenoplasty is a simple procedure that repairs torn hymen. The doctor will piecing together the remnant by closing the tear. It is a simple procedure and could be in three to seven days. The hymen tissue is pulled together so vagina will again cover by it. The risk of fever and infection is low since hymen is relatively avascular. However, the result is not meant to last long so it is best to perform in less than a month before your next intercourse.

The hymenoplasty procedure is done under local anesthesic. While tissue dissection to prevent small blood vessels from bleeding, the areas which were torn are removed. This is so that they will grow back together when they are approximated with stitches. Then after they are denuded, the edges are brought back together to reform the star-shaped “ring” as it was prior to relations, accident etc. It is made small enough, so that when first sexual relations occur later on, it will “tear” again, there will be some pain, and there will be bleeding.

If you hymen cannot be restored, a Tear-through biomaterial will be inserted and act as your hymen. Hymen implant is an easy procedure than can be done under local anesthetic and as a day case surgery. It takes less than two hours and the patient can return to work the next day. It is not easy to notice, it is not a real hymen.

You can return to most of your regular activities the next day. Your doctor uses dissolvable stitches in the reconstruction process, and the risk of infection or fever is minimal. The recovery time, however, is six to eight weeks, during which time you cannot engage in sexual activity, exercise rigorously, or use a tampon or a douche in order to avoid disrupting the healing process.

This is how the process goes, and it is up to the patient's condition and causes whether she wants to perform the operation concerning traditions or being accidently torn and want to repair it.
However, it is a patient's decision to do it or not .
