Hymenoplasty is a reconstruction of the hymen. Although it is a procedure performed mainly for religious and socio-cultural reasons, there are circumstances in which the regaining of lost virginity aims at making the partner happy. Medicine has also recorded cases of girls born without hymen or its deformity, and those who want this attribute of femininity to have. Yet other reasons why patients undergo hymenoplasty are medico-psychological factors. This applies especially to the never-before-cohabitation victims of rape, women who want to break with the current “bad life”, and finally married couples with long experience, wishing to repeat the wedding ceremony including the wedding night (a scenario quite popular in the US).
How to prepare for surgery?
The procedure is preceded by a consultation visit as well as the following tests (also available in our Clinic):
- blood group
- urine general test
- coagulogram – APTT, INR, PT
- ECG after 40
- HBS antigen
- sugar level
Two weeks before the scheduled date of surgery , you must not take aspirin or its derivatives (e.g. Acard), Vitamin E, and antitussive and anti-influenza drugs. These drugs adversely affect the prolongation of bleeding during surgery.
Limit smoking to 3-4 cigarettes a day, 3 days before surgery.
The operator should be informed of the history of infection if it occurred within 2 weeks before the planned surgery.
Stay 6 hours fasting (without eating or drinking) before surgery.
Course of operation
The procedure is performed under local anesthesia, and possible complications are virtually impossible. The duration of the treatment varies between 10 and 20 minutes. The doctor cuts and tears hyphae on the walls of the vagina, and then sutures them with absorbable thread.
After hospitalization for several hours, the patient is discharged home. A control visit to the Clinic should take place after approx. 7 days. The patient returns to complete physical activity after a few days, and virginity can be consumed after about 2 weeks. The effect is exactly the same as for ‘first time’, i.e. there may be slight bleeding and, in some cases, pain.
Meticulous compliance with postoperative recommendations is key to rapid recovery and significantly affects the final effect of the procedure.
