Before discussing hymenoplasty, let’s understand what is a hymen.A hymen is a thin membrane of pinkish color that partially covers the vaginal entrance. It is located just inside the vagina approximately half an inch inside. Actually, it is a part of the vulva which is the gateway to vagina. The function of the hymen is not exactly known but has been projected as a vaginal barrier against external sources of infection until puberty .Rupture of the hymen generally happens during the first sexual experience. However, the hymen may be torn because of strenuous activities like bicycling, horseback riding and gymnastics. Use of tampons can also rupture a hymen early. Some women are even born without a trace of a hymen.
Hymenoplasty is a very popular term describing surgery to bring back the integrity of the hymen. Restoration of the Hymenal Ring is essentially a procedure wherein using different surgical techniques, we can repair and tighten the hymen to a more intact, virgin-like state. In most cases, the surgery is virtually undetectable after healing.
The operation is done under general or local anesthesia according to the choice of patients. Patients are placed in the lithotomic position. Hymenoplasty is performed first by uniting the torn remnants of hymen. A transverse incision is then made in the vestibular mucosa posterior to the vaginal wall.The posterior vaginal wall is raised as a flap and superficial muscles are reefed. The posterior vaginal’s mucosa is tightened by creating rugae. Then, through the incision in the vestibular mucosa, the bulbosponsgiosus muscles are dissected on either side and reefing is performed. The rugi are created on vaginal mucosa. Your doctor holds the tissue and goes for stitching from superior end to the interior end. Many vertical and crosswise rugae are created through this technique until the vagina is tight. Some ointment is applied and no dressing is given. Post operation, patients are advised to clean the area and apply the ointment.
