Hymenoplasty in Miami

What is a Miami Hymenoplasty?

A hymenoplasty (hymenorrhaphy or ‘revirgination’) is a procedure aiming to reconstruct the hymen. The hymen is a thin tissue membrane located at the opening of the vagina that can be torn during vaginal penetration. The hymen’s appearance differs from one woman to another in size, shape and thickness and also evolves over time. It can appear  like a circle, a semicircle, like to separate bands, with two or more septations (openings) and rarely completely closed. Most of the time, there is an opening in the central part of the hymen that allows vaginal secretions and menstruations to come out.

Minor bleeding is common when the hymen is torn. It can be torn for different reasons such as during sexual intercourse or by the insertion of a tampon, trauma or with medical examination, and even as a result of strenuous physical activity (riding a bike, gymnastics, riding horses, etc.).

 

Who is a candidate for hymenoplasty?

Hymenoplasty is typically performed on women who wish to repair or reconstruct their hymen for personal, cultural, or religious reasons. Some women may choose to undergo the procedure to feel more comfortable with their bodies, to restore a sense of virginity, or to meet the expectations of a partner or spouse.

Not everyone is a good candidate for hymenoplasty. The procedure is not possible after giving birth vaginally.  It’s also important to consider the potential risks and limitations of the procedure before deciding to undergo hymenoplasty.

It’s important to have a candid and open conversation with a qualified plastic surgeon or gynecologist if you are considering hymenoplasty. They will be able to evaluate your specific situation and help you understand the risks and limitations of the procedure. They can also provide you with more information about the procedure and help you make an informed decision about whether it is right for you.

What does the surgery performed?

Hymenoplasty, also known as hymen reconstruction surgery or hymenorrhaphy, is a procedure that involves repairing or reconstructing the hymen, a thin membrane that partially covers the opening of the vagina. The procedure is typically performed by a plastic surgeon or gynecologist and can be done using local anesthesia or intravenous sedation.

During the procedure, the surgeon will make a small incision in the vaginal opening and carefully repair or reconstruct the hymen using suture material or other surgical techniques. The specific technique used will depend on the individual’s specific needs and goals. In some cases, the surgeon may be able to repair the existing hymen by suturing the remnants of the membrane back together. In other cases, the surgeon may need to create a new hymen using tissue from the surrounding area.

The procedure typically takes less than an hour to complete and most people are able to return to their normal activities within a few days. It’s important to follow the surgeon’s post-operative instructions carefully to minimize the risk of complications and to ensure the best possible outcome.

 

What are the risks and complications of hymenoplasty?

Like any surgical procedure, hymenoplasty carries a risk of complications. Some potential risks and complications of hymenoplasty include:

  • Infection: As with any surgical procedure, there is a risk of infection following hymenoplasty. Signs of infection may include fever, redness or swelling at the surgical site, and discharge from the vagina.
  • Bleeding: There is a risk of bleeding during and after the procedure. In some cases, a blood transfusion may be necessary.
  • Scarring: The incision made during the procedure may result in scarring, although this is typically minimal and fades over time.
  • Adverse reaction to anesthesia: There is a risk of an adverse reaction to the anesthesia used during the procedure.
  • Pain: Some people may experience pain or discomfort following the procedure.

It’s important to discuss the potential risks and complications of the procedure with Dr. Sophie before deciding to undergo hymenoplasty. They will be able to provide you with more information about the specific risks and complications associated with the procedure and help you make an informed decision about whether it is right for you.

 

How long is the recovery after hymenoplasty?

Recovery time after hymenoplasty varies from person to person. In general, most people are able to return to their normal activities within a few days of the procedure. However, it’s important to follow your surgeon’s post-operative instructions carefully to ensure the best possible outcome and to minimize the risk of complications.

During the first few days after the procedure, you may experience some swelling, tenderness, and discomfort in the vaginal area. You may also have some discharge or bleeding. It’s important to follow your surgeon’s instructions for caring for the surgical site and to avoid any activities that could put strain on the area, such as sexual activity or strenuous exercise.

Your surgeon will provide you with specific instructions for caring for the surgical site and may recommend that you take pain medication or use a cold pack to help manage any discomfort. It’s important to follow these instructions carefully to ensure proper healing and to minimize the risk of complications.

Patients heal in a few days and can return to work after a few days. Normal activities can be resumed after 1 week or so.
