What is the Success rate of Hymenoplasty?

Hymenoplasty is the surgical reconstruction of the hymen tissues. It is also popular as a revirginization surgery. The main objective of hymenoplasty surgery is to regain the virginity of a female. 

Generally, females who have had sex before marriage or those who have faced a sexual assault go for this surgery in order to regain their virginity. This surgery is more of a choice that a female makes for her own and not a medical need. In some cases, where a female’s hymen broke in an accident or during strenuous activities such as horse riding or gymnastics, she may need hymenoplasty for medical reasons.  

The opinions about this surgery are bifurcated. Some women may feel the need to get hymenoplasty done as they would not want their partner or family to know that they had intercourse previously, or before marriage. In many countries, cultures, and religions, sex before marriage is considered unethical and a female’s intact hymen is considered to be a sign of her chastity. Females in such cases may decide to get hymenoplasty.

What is the success rate of hymenoplasty? 

Hymenoplasty is a totally successful procedure with a success rate as high as 98%. In some cases, if the female does not take the precautions or doctor’s advice or has other complications, the outcome of the surgery may not be a complete success. Follow the gynecologist’s advice to get the best results from the procedure.

What is the procedure of hymenoplasty?

 The female would first have to visit the gynecologist for a check-up. The gynecologist would then let you know if you need to take any precautions before the procedure.

Hymenoplasty is performed under the influence of local or general anesthesia. For the surgery, the female is settled in the lithotomy position. The surgery is performed by joining the torn remnants of the hymen. The gynecologist will then make an incision in the vestibular mucosa, (posterior to the vaginal wall). The broken tags or remnants of the hymen are then united using self-dissolvable sutures. As the female is under the influence of anesthesia, she would have no pain or discomfort during the procedure. 

The sutures take about 15-21 days to dissolve completely. After the procedure, the female is advised to keep her vaginal areas clean and apply the prescribed ointment regularly, as suggested by the gynecologist.
