Hymen Reconstruction (Hymenoplasty)
The hymen is a ring-like structure that surrounds the vaginal entrance located at the entrance to the vagina. Although it is named as a membrane, it is not a structure that closes the uterine entrance or prevents it like a curtain. It is a structure with a gap in the middle enough to allow intercourse and menstrual blood to come.
In this structure, which is damaged and bleeding due to intercourse, sometimes bleeding may not occur because it is very flexible. This procedure, which is in demand in some societies for cultural reasons and in others due to aesthetic concerns, can be performed under local anesthesia or general anesthesia. Two main techniques are applied as permanent and temporary hymen suturing. Hymen surgeries generally have short recovery times. With good and careful surgical care, the post-operative process is passed without any problems.
