Hymenoplasty in Ibiza
hymenoplasty service in Ibiza to regain your confidence
Among the intimate surgery interventions that we perform in our aesthetic clinic in Ibiza, is the hymenoplasty. In the following guide we tell you all about this surgical procedure, so you know if it is right for you.
What is hymenoplasty?
Hymenoplasty, also known as hymen restoration surgery, is a surgical procedure performed to repair or reconstruct the hymen.
The hymen is a kind of thin membrane located at the entrance of the vagina. Because it can be torn for various reasons (as we will see below), there is this type of intimate surgery that helps women to reconstruct it.
It is an intervention that is recommended to be performed days after your period is over, since this way you have more time to heal before your menstruation returns. If you can time it right, so much the better.
Curious fact: after the surgery and after the first sexual intercourse, you will see that the hymen tears naturally. So your partner will not be able to tell if it is a hymen reconstruction. Let’s say, the sensation is similar to the first sexual intercourse.
How can the hymen be damaged?
The reality is that the hymen can be damaged or ruptured for a variety of reasons. For example, due to childbirth or after sexual intercourse. It is a tissue that can be torn with a woman’s first sexual penetration.
In some women the hymen can even break when using tampons, if you suffer an injury or even from horseback riding or cycling. Every woman is different and these activities can affect the hymen differently.
In order to reconstruct it there is the hymenoplasty procedure, which should always be performed by professionals and aims to return a torn or stretched hymen to its original state.
How is the surgery performed?
Hymenoplasty is performed through a small incision in the vagina. Different surgical techniques are used to repair or reconstruct the hymen, depending on the state in which it is found, since each patient may be different.
The most common is the suture technique. There is also the flap technique, where a portion of nearby tissue is used to reconstruct the hymen, and can be used in cases where the hymen membrane is badly damaged.
The procedure is usually performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia.
As for the recovery time, it varies depending on the individual. In any case, it is essential to avoid physical activities days after surgery. As well as avoiding sexual intercourse for at least 4 to 8 weeks (whatever the surgeon recommends depending on your specific case).
Is there a scar? In general, the scar is practically invisible. So it will not affect you from the aesthetic point of view.
How many times can it be performed?
It can be performed as many times as necessary for functional and health reasons. In any case, it is advisable that some time passes between each surgical procedure and it should be assessed on a case-by-case basis.
Benefits of hymenoplasty for women
The benefits of hymenoplasty for women are palpable. Mainly, they are:
Being more confident: one of the compelling reasons to undergo this procedure is that it can help you feel more confident and comfortable with how you look after surgery.
Pain relief: there is less talk about the pain that some women experience when they have sex because they have a tight or stiff hymen. So surgery can help you forget about this pain.
These are some of the cases that lead many women to decide to undergo this intervention.
However, there are other reasons why a woman might decide to have this procedure. In some cultures, women may want to have it done because they are getting married soon and want to be virgins again; they have that pressure in their environment. But there are also those who do it to start from scratch, because of an important psychological issue, even in cases such as rape.
How are sexual relations after hymenoplasty?
This question is asked by many women, about whether bleeding occurs. The truth is that the fact of bleeding as such depends on the person, the membrane, the quality of the skin or the sexual act itself. There is no single answer, because it depends on the woman.
