Temporary Hymen Repair Surgery
In temporary surgeries, the hymen residues are brought close together and sutured by setting them free from their present locations. This method should be performed 3-7 days before the marriage, because its temporal time protects itself. There is not bleeding guarantee of this method. Even if the sutures melt, they may not completely melt in this process. If the patients don’t have enough time, temporary suturing is suggested. Even in this situation, I operate not only the hymen residues; also I bring an additional texture to the backside. By this means, it becomes safer.
Hymen Repair By Permanent Flap Method
The main and permanent hymen reconstruction is the permanent hymen repair made with the flap taken from the interior surface of vagina. In this method, a totally new texture is lifted inside the vagina, and this texture is placed in the vaginal opening. Only a small part of this texture is left open. Thus, bleeding, menstrual bleeding, and vaginal secretions may come out from here. The permanent flap texture is stitched not with one or two suture, with the sutures from end to end. Thus, a situation such as stitches opening is not had. Being performed of this surgery by aesthetic plastic surgeon is more appropriate. Because lifting the texture called flap requires only a plastic surgical knowledge and experience. Size, width of the flap to be prepared, and the determination of location it will be taken from are highly important.
Permanent Hymen Repair By Double Layer Flap Method
“I perform permanent hymen repair for my patients with double layer flap method by laser.” In this technique, by lifting 2 flaps it is provided one to close to the exterior surface, and the other to the interior surface.

Why Should A Plastic Surgeon Perform The Hymen Repair?

Because we plastic surgeons use the tissue we called flap not only in the hymen repair, also in cases of wound, tissue loss, accident and open wound in any area of the body to repair the opening here.
In other words, the biggest weapon of a plastic surgeon is the flap tissue. The place this tissue will be lifted from, relation between its length and width, and blood build up are highly important. Consequently, who is the most competent on this information is the plastic surgeon.
