Hymenoplasty, hymen reconstruction, hymen repair and the improper term “revirgination” all convey the essence of procedures focused on restoring the hymenal ring diameter to a size a quality that will provoke bleeding upon vaginal penetration.
Owing to cultural sensitivity and tradition, most women seeking this procedure are concerned that the result look as natural as possible and the desired functional outcome – bleeding – be reliable.
While no functional outcome in any operation done for any indication can ever be guaranteed, meticulous surgical technique and properly chosen suture materials offer the best prospect for success. Modern techniques dictate a six-week healing phase prior to anticipated intercourse for optimal effect. There is little discomfort associated with recovery and there are no travel restrictions on the basis of this procedure.
Laser and radiofrequency technologies are used, as needed, to maximize the quality of the tissue reconstruction.
Most hymenoplasty procedures are performed under local anesthesia alone given in low doses. With properly dosed injections at precise locations you will be very comfortable without being subjected to the side effects of strong high-dose anesthetics and drugs.
Most women who seek hymenoplasty undergo this procedure 2 – 6 months before their wedding date, but having the surgery more than six months beforehand does not affect the quality of the results and is an excellent option for women with a busy schedule.
OUT OF TOWN PATIENTS
Many patients at ALIA travel considerable distances for our expertise in this procedure. We are located 10 minutes from Dulles International Airport with direct flights to/from many cities worldwide. We facilitate this process by providing the option of same-day consultation/same-day surgery. This is arranged in advance and by request at the time that you contact our office. Pre-operative blood-work testing will need to be performed in advance through a local physician or lab near your home. Dr. Tajkarimi will review your situation to determine if this is an appropriate option. If you fly, or if your drive home is more than 2 hours, we recommend that you stay in the area overnight after your surgery so that Dr. Tajkarimi and his team can evaluate you for proper healing on the day after surgery; afterwards, you may travel home. There are many excellent and cost effective hotel options in Herndon, Dulles, and Reston Virginia.
