Hymen reconstruction (Hymenoplasty)

Plastic surgery

Hymen reconstruction is performed for religious, cultural, or other personal reasons. For example, in some cultures, a non-intact hymen may present an obstacle to marriage. In other cases, the procedure may play a psychological role to repair a tear in the hymen caused due to injury or sexual abuse, for instance. Nowadays, hymenoplasty is a routine gynecological procedure.

Our plastic gynecologists always take a discreet and sensitive approach.

Who is a suitable candidate for this procedure

We recommend hymenoplasty for adult women who see the damage of the hymen as a handicap making their social or personal life harder. Especially if the hymen has been damaged undesirably, such as as a result of abuse or injury, a woman may feel traumatized. Hymenoplasty is undergone by women, who have entered a new partnership, for symbolic reasons.

What can you gain from this procedure

  • Hymen reconstruction for religious, cultural, or mental reasons
  • Helps address psychological trauma after sexual abuse
  • Minimum pain and quick return to normal life
  • Hymen reconstruction after a sports injury or an accident

Before the procedure

For patients traveling to ABClinic Art & Beauty from abroad, we offer the first consultation online. A physician will perform a gynecological examination at an in-person consultation in Prague before the procedure.

The procedure

The surgery is performed under general anesthesia. A physician sutures the mucous membrane of the vaginal opening or the remains of the damaged hymen that may remain in the opening.

The wound is sutured using absorbable sutures. Therefore, their removal is not necessary. The whole procedure is approximately 40 to 60 minutes long.

The procedure may be combined with all vaginal procedures, such as labiaplasty or vaginoplasty.

After the procedure

The inpatient stay usually lasts for one day, and the recovery period is not difficult. The sutures usually absorb or fall out on their own. We recommend frequent showering to avoid infection in the wound area. We recommend avoiding physical exertion for one week and avoiding sexual intercourse until healing is complete, usually for about four weeks.
