Are the physical changes produced by hymenoplasty permanent?
Hymenoplasty, otherwise known as hymen reconstruction surgery or hymenorrhaphy, is a simple and effective cosmetic surgery that can achieve convincing hymen restoration by surgically reconstructing the hymenal ring. At Renew Skin & Health Clinic, the procedure is performed by one of our experienced gynecological surgeons who would carefully reconnect the remnant hymenal tissues by simply sewing them together. Because no incision is visible and the stitches used are dissolvable, the aesthetic effects of the procedure are incredibly realistic. The greatest benefit of hymen reconstruction surgery is that it reproduces not only the appearance of the hymen prior to the first rupture, but it also perfectly reproduces its behavior. This means that the reconstructed hymen will rupture and bleed normally if damaged; its resistance to mechanic force will basically be the same as it was prior to the initial hymenal rupture. Under normal conditions, if the patient is careful during the recovery period and makes sure that the operated area heals properly, there is no reason the hymen could not last until an external and sufficient pressure is placed upon it. An unintentional rupture can take place, especially in the first phase of the recovery period, but this can easily be avoided with a bit of care.
There is also a short-term solution available for the patient, often called temporary hymen repair, though we generally advise against it. It implies the suturing of the remnant hymenal tissue in order to approximate the appearance of the hymenal ring. After 2 or 3 weeks, the stitches will dissolve leading to the reconstructed hymen returning to its former state on its own, without the exertion of any external pressure. This is considered a less convincing solution which should be used only in radical circumstances.
