Hymen Repair

Hymen Repair

Hymen Repair SurgeryAt The Plastic Surgery Clinic, we fully understand the sensitive nature of hymen repair surgery, and the importance that this surgery can mean in a woman’s life. With absolute discretion and confidentiality, we can repair the hymen to ensure the hymen will rupture on a woman’s matrimonial night. Hymen repair surgery can make you feel more comfortable upon your wedding night and improve your self-confidence.

Hymen Repair Surgery

The hymen is a thin layer of tissue that encloses the vaginal area. The hymen can easily break in many situations outside of intercourse, including vigorous activities such as horseback riding or gymnastics, the insertion of tampons, or even during regular pap smears. Many women may not even be aware that their hymen has torn, as there may be little to no blood loss and no pain.

Hymen repair surgery, also known as hymenoplasty, is a simple procedure that will repair a torn hymen or build a hymen that is not present. It is important to understand that the surgery will not restore virginity, but it will allow for women to tear and bleed the first time they engage in intercourse after surgery.

Empower Yourself with Knowledge

If you are considering this sensitive surgery, you should feel absolutely confident in all aspects of the surgery. Please explore the links on the left to learn more; if you have more questions about whether hymen repair is for you, please contact us info@theplasticsurgeryclinic.com to set up a complimentary, and confidential, consultation with Toronto plastic surgeons Dr. Lista, Dr. Ahmad or Dr. Austin.

What is Hymen Repair?

You will be placed under local sedation. The surgery normally takes less than one hour. In women who have a torn hymen, your surgeon, a hymen repair specialist, will stitch together the remaining pieces. This will allow the hymen to grow back together as it heals. In women who have no remnants of the hymen remaining or have been born without a hymen, the plastic surgeon will tighten the vaginal entrance and use a small portion of the vaginal tissue to create a new hymen. This constructed hymen is very similar to the natural hymen.

The Best Candidates for Hymen Repair

The best hymenoplasty candidates are those who need to ensure that their hymen is intact during intercourse on their matrimonial night. The surgery needs to be performed at least 6 weeks prior to the matrimonial night. If the breaking of your hymen is imperative for you due to social, cultural, religious or personal reasons, your plastic surgeon will discuss the surgery openly and honestly with you.

Preparing for Hymen Repair

Many women find discussing the nature of this surgery to be difficult. At the Plastic Surgery Clinic we are aware of the sensitive nature of your concerns. This is why we treat all of our hymen repair patients with kindness, consideration and dignity. Before you decide to have surgery, think carefully about your expectations and discuss them with plastic surgery provider Dr. Lista or Dr. Ahmad.

We are also happy to ensure that a female nurse is present for you during your consultation if you wish. You will receive complete instructions on preparing for your surgery, and you will require a gynecological examination.

Recovery Following Hymen Repair

Following your plastic surgery procedure you will need to gently wash the area with soap and water regularly. There will be slight swelling and bruising for 2-4 weeks, but pain should be very minimal and should be gone within a week of surgery. You will receive a prescription for pain medication and antibiotics to assist with any pain and to prevent infection.

You should refrain from any vaginal insertion until the wedding night, including tampons. This will allow the incisions to heal completely and prevent the new hymen from breaking. You should also avoid heavy lifting and any strenuous activities as this may negatively affect your healing. The sutures will dissolve and come out on their own.

You should be able to return to work the day after undergoing hymen repair. You should be able to resume a light exercise routine one week after surgery. Avoid heavy lifting or a strenuous exercise routine for 4-6 weeks.

Hymen Repair Risks & Complications

Every operation has risks and potential complications. Fortunately, the vast majority of our Toronto and Mississauga hymenoplasty patients have no problems with their surgery and are extremely happy with their results.

Risks are rare but when they do occur additional medications or even surgery may be required. Such risks include infection, bleeding, scarring, pain with intercourse, and deformity. Also, the amount of bleeding upon first intercourse following surgery cannot be predicted. However, most patients never experience these risks, as they are quite rare.

Six weeks after surgery, your hymen will be healed and restored. The first time most of our hymen repair patients engage in intercourse following the surgery, the hymen will break as expected with a natural hymen. There are usually no signs of having had a hymen repair surgery, and our patients are fully able to fulfill the cultural or religious expectations of their family and future husband.

It is important to understand that the bleeding associated with the tearing of the surgically produced hymen is just as unpredictable as it is with a natural hymen in a virgin.

Cost of Hymen Repair

At The Plastic Surgery clinic we understand the sensitivity and discretion with which to treat hymen repair. For many women this surgery may be necessary for various personal or religious reasons, but it is not usually covered by provincial health care plans and may seem out of their price range. Our priority is our patients’ well-being, and this includes relieving pre-surgery and financial stress. This is why we have financing options available to reduce the anxiety associated with cost, and to make this surgery achievable and affordable. At our clinic you can relax; you’re in good hands.
