PATIENT PROFILE

Women that wish to restore their hymen.

PROCEDURE

The hymen is composed by fibrous and elastic tissue covered with little blood vessels. When it breaks, small bleeding occurs. Sexual activity is the general cause of hymen breaking but it has also been demonstrated that in some unusual circumstances it can be broken by using a tampon; practicing sports like cycling, horse riding or gymnastics; even spontaneously.

There are three kinds of hymenoplasty

  • Early repair: hymen is sutured in a maximum period of 15 to 20 days after the break.
  • Hymen reconstruction from caruncles or membrane vestiges. This is the most frequent technique.
  • Creation of a new membrane form a vaginal mucous section. This technique can also be combined with the anterior one.

Frequently asked questions about female intimate surgery

What are the problems that can be improved with female intimate surgery?

There are birth problems as well as other problems added by age, childbirths, accidents, etc. that alter the aesthetics of the external female genitalia. It is common to see labia minora that are too big, asymmetrical, that protrude too much, as well as excess or reduction of the fat of the mount of Venus, loss of hair, reduction of the labia majora, even laxity of the vestibule and the vaginal canal. All these situations can affect to a greater or lesser extent the intimate life of patients or even everyday situations such as: going to the gym, medical eyesight, hair removal, or even affect the type of clothing that usually wears the patient.

Is female intimate surgery complicated?

Intimate female surgery can improve the appearance, rejuvenate, and in some cases recover the correct function of the external genitalia of women. They are simple procedures, mostly ambulatory, and with a very short recovery period.

Who performs female intimate surgery procedures?

Although there are several techniques described on the subject and are simple procedures, there are still few professionals who can offer adequate and contrasted results for intimate surgery. In this sense, it is fundamental that these procedures are carried out by specialists with surgical training and sufficient experience in this type of surgeries and treatments. Plastic and reconstructive surgery is the only specialty that includes in a regulated way the feminine aesthetic reconstruction in its formation. It should be noted that Clinica Sanza is one of the pioneering centres in this type of intervention and its technique has been presented at various specialty congresses for the training of other surgeons.

What do these interventions consist of?

Among the main treatments are the reduction and reconstruction of the labia minora; liposuction or lipoinfiltration (depending on whether you want to decrease or increase) of mount Venus; augmentation of labia majora; micro hair implants; vaginoplasty or reduction of the thickness of the vagina.

What is Labia Minora Reconstruction?

It is a small intervention that removes excess mucous membrane from the lips, giving symmetry and harmony, with a more youthful appearance and aesthetics, without affecting the sensitivity. It is performed under local anesthesia, ambulatory and a recovery period of 3 to 5 days.

What is pubic liposculpture?

It is a procedure in which it is possible to eliminate the excess of fat or to give volume, according to the case, of the mount of Venus. It is performed with local anesthesia or sedation, ambulatory and must carry a fajita for 7 to 10 days.

What is a lip augmentation?

It is a surgery in which the labia majora can be filled with the patient’s own fat or with hyaluronic acid. We practice it in cases in which age and other factors generate loss of turgidity and volume of the labia majora.

Is it possible to perform micro grafts of pubic hair?

Yes, the loss of pubic hair can affect the aesthetics of the area and give an appearance of senility. In these necessary cases it is feasible to make micro implants to improve the density or fill specific areas. Nowadays it is more unused because of the fashionable English and/or depilated pubis.

What is Vaginoplasty?

Births, age, weight and other factors can condition a laxity of the vaginal canal which is progressive and can affect the quality of intimate relationships. In this situation it can be corrected by means of a simple surgery, in which we narrow the vaginal canal and give it a more youthful appearance, strength and a restored muscular tone.

What is required to perform these procedures?

Obviously a prior assessment by the cosmetic surgeon, and if a repair is necessary, the patient must take a blood test. Most of these procedures are outpatient, and under local anesthesia or sedation. After the intervention you have to be under observation for a couple of hours and then you can go home. The daily routine can be resumed after 5 to 7 days. When it comes to exercise, sports and intimate relationships you should wait a month.

Can the hymen be left as if it were a virgin?

Yes, this intervention called Himenoplasty is very requested by women whose culture obliges them to marry virgins, that is to say, without having had previous relations.

What is Hymenoplasty and does it hurt?

Small cuts are made in the vaginal introitus, i.e. the vagina entrance, and the vaginal mucosa is sutured in such a way that the entrance to the vagina is closed as it was before intercourse. It’s not painful.
