Hymenoplasty is the repair, reconstruction, and restoration of a women’s hymen. The hymen is the delicate membrane that guards the entrance to the vaginal canal. It comes from the Greek word hymen meaning “membrane”.
The hymen consists of tissue that is present in virgin girls forming a permeable membrane over their vaginal canal. Menstrual bleeding and normal vaginal discharge can seep through this membrane without damaging it. It is usually thin and flexible but in certain cases it can be thick and rigid.
The examination of this membrane can reveal a lot about a women’s sex life. More so than she would want to disclose herself. Usually, in the first sexual encounter, the hymen resists the penile penetration in the beginning and only gives way after tearing apart and bleeding that leaves a lot of little blood on the sheets depending on the circumstances. Lost virginity is depicted historically by blood soiled sheets. The tearing apart also causes pain when losing virginity.
Other reasons for losing the hymen include strenuous exercise, horseback or bicycle riding, penetrative OBGYN exam, finger insertion, tampon insertion, and even masturbation. In some rare cases, the hymen may not be naturally present. Due to many reasons, both cultural and religious, women may opt to restore the hymen.
What is hymenoplasty surgery?
The hymenoplasty surgery is the procedure of re-attachment of the remaining pieces of the hymen if enough threads are remaining. If the threads remaining after the penetration or repeated intercourse are not enough to reconstruct the hymen the procedure involves creating an artificial hymen using synthetic tissue. In some cases, tissue from the lip of the vagina is used to re-create the hymen. A small amount of blood supply is usually added from the patient’s vaginal flap to recreate the traditional bleeding on subsequent penetration.
The hymenoplasty surgery involves tightening of the outer edges of the vagina by reconstructing the hymen tissue. Bleeding is part of the surgery and patients can bleed for a couple of days after the surgery. Bleeding is like menstrual bleeding and requires recovery. Side effects of the hymenoplasty surgery involve discoloration and numbness. In some cases, the color of the membrane can change. Hymenoplasty surgery is aimed at improving the dysfunctions and improving a woman’s hidden aesthetics, the result can have a major impact on her self-esteem and sexual desire due to the risks involved.
The average cost of hymenoplasty surgery can range from $8,000 to $10,000. Due to the complications developed in the surgery, in most cases, post-operative costs can exceed by a couple of thousand dollars.
