What is Hymenoplasty?
Despite the sexual revolution, the subject of a women’s virginity is still relevant in the world. Of course, the barbarous days when women were expelled from their community or indeed murdered for the loss of their innocence prior to marriage has rightfully passed. However, many cultures and religions still consider an intact hymen to indicate a mark of virginity. Therefore this reconstruction surgery to repair the hymen remains in popular demand by modern patients.
Reasons for hymen restoration surgery:
The reasons for hymen reconstruction are many and varied, ranging from a daughter’s fear of her parents due to religious beliefs, or a desire to ‘refresh’ a current relationship. Perhaps a medic may recommend their patient seek solace post an unwanted sexual encounter. Medical reasons for this reconstruction surgery do not exist – the requirement for such manipulation is purely a woman’s desire.
Hymenoplasty – an operation to surgically restore the hymen, a membrane that partially closes the opening of the vagina, successfully carried out for more than 40 years.
In our clinics a virginity restoration surgery is performed on an outpatient basis with maximum delicacy and full confidentiality. The operation lasts approximately 40 minutes. After the hymen repair, patients do not report experiencing any problems with future sexual activity or childbirth.
Types of hymenoplasty
We offer either short-term or long-term hymen surgery.
Short-term hymenoplasty is conducted when a result is required within the next 7-10 days. In this case, the hymen is simply sutured together. The procedure is usually carried out under local anaesthetic, and full healing does not occur meaning the result is short-lived.
Long-term results to restore virginity consists of a more complex operation as it involves the restoration of the whole of the hymen, including vaginal tissue. This ensures the restoration of virginity in perpetuity. Therefore, it is conducted under a general anaesthetic. During reconstruction surgery we use absorbable sutures, limiting further intrusion.
How long is the hymenoplasty procedure?
Particulars of the procedure
Hymenoplasty surgery is carried out 4-5 days prior to the next menstruation period.
Hymenoplasty can be performed several times, but not indefinitely as the vaginal lining used to reconstruct the hymen becomes thinner with each manipulation.
Hymen replacement surgery is painless and safe for women. Almost immediately after surgery, the patient is able to leave the clinic and return to their usual rhythm of life.
Eligibility for hymenoplasty under the NHS
Hymenoplasty is considered a cosmetic procedure and therefore would not be considered for NHS eligibility.
