The surgery for reconstruction of the hymen or hymenoplasty aims to offer women a new virginity. It is therefore possible to become a virgin again from an anatomical point of view.
This operation takes place in a social, cultural, family, and sometimes religious context, where the woman must be a virgin at the time of marriage, in particular in the Maghreb and Mediterranean traditions.
The procedure involves incising the mucous membrane at the lower part of the opening of the vagina. A local plasty can restore the hymen.
The hymen reconstruction procedure lasts 30 minutes and takes place under local anesthesia. It is not painful. The patient leaves shortly after.
Three to four days' rest is necessary, and the patient must avoid too violent household, physical and sports activities for a month.
The patient should avoid horseback riding, cycling, and also the swimming pool and sauna during this time. Afterwards, life can resume quite normally.
The final result of the reconstruction is visible around the 2nd month.
As a first step, a consultation with your surgeon is necessary. It includes a precise questioning, in particular on your possible pathologies and the treatments that you take during this meeting.
the practitioner will inform you of the expected results and possible risks.
Ten days before the operation, you will stop taking aspirin (and its derivatives).
The plasty of the hymen can be done according to two techniques: either we recover the remains of the membrane and we suture them with a very fine thread; or we use shreds of the vagina to recreate a hymen.
The operation lasts on average 30 minutes under local anesthesia, on an outpatient basis (you leave the same day).
Any surgery involves risks: infection, hematoma, scar which breaks up… In the context of hymenoplasty, these complications are extremely rare.
The postoperative treatment is generally painless. You can take a shower the day after the operation.
Warning: do not rub or insert your fingers, as the fabric is very fragile.
Edema may appear: this swelling "usually" takes between 3 and 5 days to subside.
You may experience bleeding for 1 to 2 days or more.
For 4 weeks, you will avoid cleaning, sport, sauna, swimming pool, hammam.
Hymen reconstruction surgery leaves no mark. The threads are reabsorbed in about two weeks: it is impossible to know that the membrane has been reconstituted.
Healing is complete in 1 month to 1 and a half months, with an invisible scar.
After the operation, the intimate relationship will "most of the time" bleed as with an intact hymen. We can't guarantee it: it depends on the nature, the texture, the membrane… remember, even non-operated women may not bleed. In any case, during the first report, your husband will feel resistance.
The plastic surgeon will be particularly attentive to the follow-up of your intervention. He is counting on your availability to come to the control consultations. These are necessary to obtain an optimal result and to accompany you safely to the “big day”.
Hymenoplasty or reconstruction of the hymen is an operation of cosmetic and reconstructive surgery which aims to reconstitute the hymen and therefore virginity. The damaged hymen after intercourse is repaired. There is no visible trace of the operation.
In what context is a hymenoplasty (reconstitution of the hymen) performed?
The requests are frequent and the history of the patients coming to consult Doctor Vincent Masson is often the same. It could be :
Reconstruction of the hymen is surgery that is most often performed for religious reasons before marriage. The hymen is a small membrane that closes part of the entrance to the vagina and signs virginity. It is broken during the first sexual intercourse (sometimes by certain sports as well). Its tear during the report will cause after the resistance effect a more or less severe pain and in the majority of cases a bleeding.
If reconstruction is indicated, it is performed under local anesthesia and lasts about 20 minutes. Stitches are put in place to close the hymen or a flap of mucosa is created to reconstruct the hymen. Ideally, it is necessary to wait at least 3 weeks before sexual intercourse to be sure that the threads are absorbed, that they can no longer be felt and that the hymen is very solid. The operation is not particularly painful afterwards. It is just necessary to avoid the baths, the swimming pool, the violent sports, the strong vibrations and to touch inside. In most cases, sexual intercourse will be normal, like the first time, with resistance during penetration, the sensation of rupture of the hymen and bleeding takes place in 95% of cases.This bleeding is not present in 100% of cases (with or without reconstruction) because some people do not bleed much from the base.
How is a hymenoplasty or hymen reconstruction performed?
The first step is to consult a plastic surgeon who will explain the procedure to you as well as the prices and tariffs . This intervention is not covered by social security.
Everything that will be revealed during this consultation is subject to medical confidentiality. No one can consult your file or have information about this consultation except you.
The operation consists of suturing the hymen and closing it from the hymenal remains. The remains of the hymen are sometimes insufficient to allow reconstruction of the hymen and another technique is then possible. The repair is solid and lasts over time.
The threads are very fine, almost invisible and are absorbable (they fall out on their own after about 15 days). There is no visible scar. The operation is very fast (around 30 minutes). There is no hospitalization (you come in one morning and go home in the evening). The anesthesia is either local (injection of anesthetic product and you are not sleeping), or general (you are sleeping) but very short and light.
An information sheet on hymenoplasty will be given to you as well as a quote. A second consultation is mandatory with your surgeon for all intimate cosmetic surgery. An operation date can be programmed. According to the law, a minimum of 15 days must elapse between the first consultation and the reconstruction of the hymen.
What happens after the operation?
No one can have access to your medical records except you. The pain is limited and lasts a few days, not preventing walking. There is no need for a bandage. A simple protection in the panties is enough. An analgesic drug equivalent to paracetamol is sufficient to calm these pains in the majority of cases. You have to rest 2 to 3 days after the operation, wait 15 days to 3 weeks before doing sport again or swimming in the pool and 3 weeks before having sex (duration of healing).
The reconstructed hymen is similar to a virgin hymen and will normally bleed during intercourse.
Can there be complications?
If you are young and healthy, complications are very rare. As with all operations, you may encounter bleeding or pain greater than normal, temporary disturbances of sensitivity. To avoid hymen healing problems, it is important to stop smoking one month before the hymen is rebuilt.
What is the price of hymenoplasty?
The price depends on the technique used and will be indicated to you by Doctor Vincent Masson in consultation. From 1800 euros.
