Hymen is a ring-like skin membrane that lies in the vagina of every girl. It covers the opening to the vaginal passage from the urethral orifice backwards, and allows menstrual blood to escape through the vagina. Rupturing of the hymen indicates an end to virginity. Hymenoplasty (hymen repair) also known as Virginity Surgery is a surgical process of repairing the ruptured hymen in women. It is also known as Hymenorrhaphy. The word “Hymenorrhaphy” comes from two Greek terms “hymen” meaning membrane and “raphe” meaning suture. The main purpose of the surgery is to restore the hymen and take women back to virginity, even after the hymen has come apart. In various parts across the world including South Korea, Western Europe and Unites States, Hymenoplasty is performed as a day surgery and is mostly done in plastic surgery centers.
Process of Hymenoplasty
Primarily, there are two kinds of Hymenoplasty operations – Hymen Repair or Hymenorrhaphy and Hymenoplasty for Natural Looking Hymen. In either case, it is a non-invasive surgery, which is performed under anesthesia. However, patients can also be sedated with general anesthesia. It is a simple procedure in which the torn edges of the hymen are cut out and removed, after which, the hymen is stitched with fine dissolvable sutures.
The hymen has a secondary layer that gradually gets won up, to cover the torn skin. As the torn skin grafts together again, the hymen automatically becomes intact. In case if this is not possible, a new hymen is created from the vagina lip. The entire process takes about 30 minutes to 90 minutes, depending on the status of hymen. It is more convenient, flexible and does not require patients to stay in the hospital overnight.
Complete recovery takes around 4 to 6 weeks, when the surgical wound heals permanently. Proper care and maintenance are essential during this phase. Patients must also give time to themselves by climbing stairs gently, walking normally, and avoiding exhausting activities.
Risks & Side-Effects
Hymenoplasty is a safe and secured procedure. However, in some cases, it might have certain risks and side effects. Patients might have small risks of infection, which may happen due to prolonged bleeding or anesthesia.
Soon after surgery, patients are more likely to experience slight pain and soreness. Surgeons provide painkillers to reduce pain in few days.
Severe complications in this surgery, is quite rare. In certain patients, the hymen might be sealed too tight to allow further intercourses. It is an over-correction problem, which hardly sustains for the long-run.
Problems associated with the suture can narrow the vaginal opening, and make future intercourses, difficult.
