What Is Hymenoplasty?

The hymen is a muscular band that lines the opening of the vagina. Hymenoplasty is a surgery that restores and in select cases opens the hymen. Dr. Mayhew may recommend the procedure to patients who wish to repair the hymen due to trauma, cultural and religious reasons, injuries, and the concept known as “revirgination.”

Hymenoplasty Procedure

Absorbable stitches are used in any operation on the hymen. These procedures are done on an outpatient basis under anesthesia for patient comfort and safety. It usually takes less than one hour of operating time.

After your hymenoplasty, we recommend that you take a day or two to rest before returning to work. Complete healing after the procedure can take six to eight weeks.

Why Should I Choose Dr. Mayhew and For Women By Women for Hymenoplasty?

General surgeons are not trained in vaginal surgery with as deep of an understanding of the female anatomy as OB-GYNs. Dr. Mayhew is an experienced OB-GYN that specializes in the female anatomy. She focuses on healing, functionality, and ensuring each patient's confidence is restored when it comes to her body.

What Are the Benefits of Hymenoplasty at For Women By Women?

Hymenoplasty is a surgical procedure that many women choose for very private and personal reasons. We understand how difficult and embarrassing it may be for you to discuss your reasoning behind your hymenoplasty. Dr. Mayhew provides you with a safe and comfortable setting to talk about your desires, as well as for your procedure.
