Long waiting times in UK…

Because of long waiting times in UK hospitals due to Covid19, I hit upon the idea of having my bilateral hernia surgery done while on a 2-week holiday in Antalya. After making inquiries through Yasmin, I had a short but comprehensive consultation with an eminent surgeon Prof Alihan Gürkan and my operation was scheduled for a day halfway through my stay in Antalya. It went well with keyhole surgery, I stayed in overnight and was discharged the next day, which gave me 6 days to recover before my flight home to Scotland. Yasmin kept in touch throughout, making sure I had transport to and from the hospital, and a special thanks to Fatma, my mentor and guide at the Memorial Hospital on my day of tests and examinations. I telephoned my surgeon a few days after the operation for advice on removing my plasters and he was most helpful and reassuring about my complete recovery. I was not too fond of the breakfast, but considered it as another form of medicine! My flight home was amazingly comfortable without painkillers, although they were definitely needed for a few days after my operation. In conclusion, I would be happy to have other treatment like this, though in a nice sort of way I hope never to set eyes on the Memorial Hospital again. 🙂

A very positive outcome

A very positive outcome, following my decision to pursue in having dental cosmetic surgery/treatment carried out in Turkey. Excellent advisory skills by Flymedi rep Abud. He was professional, well informed, and followed me up with total attention throughout the whole process. Last but not least, I thank Dr Ahmed Kumsan and his team at Infinity Smiles Dental Clinic for their commitment and professionalism. Highly recommended.

Thank you Flymedi

I was considering several different options, however Abud was by far the most committed and helpful of all the agents I'd been in discussions with. Everything was organised for me and I was guided throughout and if I was feeling apprehensive about anything or had any questions Abud was always on hand to answer my questions and give reassurances. I'm so happy with the results of my operation and I was left overwhelmed by how friendly and supportive everyone was throughout. If you're considering using flymedi then I can honestly say you'll be delighted with the service both before during and after your surgery.

Overview

Hymenoplasty surgery, also known as hymenorrhaphy or hymen reconstruction surgery, is a medical procedure that is performed to restore the hymen.The hymen is a small membrane positioned close to the entry point of the vagina. There is no function of the hymen for the human body. Generally, females have an intact hymen before having intercourse, but there are exceptions.

What causes the hymen to break? 
Sexual intercourse is the initial main reason for the hymen to rupture. In some cases, masturbation can also cause the rupture of the hymen. Some of the heavy physical activities may cause the rupture of the hymen as well, such as horseback riding, riding a bicycle, exercise, or sports. Also, the hymen can be ruptured as a result of trauma, a heavy fall, or simply tampon use.

Why do women from all around the world want their hymen “back”? 
There are several reasons for a woman to decide on a hymen reconstruction surgery:
● Cultural or religious requirements – In some cultures before the marriage, the woman is expected to be a virgin. Therefore, she is inspected.Women can choose hymenoplasty to regain their intact hymen. 
● Healing from sexual abuse –Women who are the survivors of sexual assault may decide on having a hymen reconstruction surgery or hymenoplasty surgery.Hymenoplasty surgery has the role of empowering the woman and restoring their old stronger self. 
● Accidental rupture – Hymen can be ruptured by using a tampon in addition to some physical activities.Women can opt for hymenoplasty surgery a few days before marrying. ● Revirginization – Certain women, have this procedure in order to offer their partners a special gift.

Preparation

Before the hymenoplasty operation, doctors perform examinations to check for hepatitis or genital infections such as ureaplasma, mycoplasma, or chlamydia. Doctors also look for the inflammatory diseases that might influence the genital area. Also, the hymenoplasty is suggested at least a week before the menstruation.

How It Is Performed

Hymenoplasty surgery can be performed in several different methods, such as:

● The first technique is the simplest – the edges of the hymen are simply stitched together. After this procedure, patients might feel pain and bleeding during sexual intercourse.
● With the second technique, a flap of the vaginal mucosa is used to repair the hymen. This operation’s effects remain for around a week.
● With the third technique, the hymen is reconstructed from membranous vestiges or caruncles. This technique is the most common and most efficient one.

Hymenoplasty is mostly performed with local anesthesia. However, some patients may request general anesthesia. Usually, hymenoplasty lasts for around an hour.

Recovery

The recovery period of hymenoplasty lasts for around 4-6 weeks. Although hymenoplasty operation is a relatively easy practice, patients should pay attention to the recovery period as well. During the recovery period of hymenoplasty, hygiene is a very important factor. During the recovery phase, patients should observe their body for the signs of infection, which may involve sudden pain, excessive bleeding, and excessive tenderness. Also, during the recovery period, patients should avoid sexual intercourse as well. Additionally, after the operation, patients should avoid tight underwears for around 2-3 weeks.

Risks

There are several complications and risks related to hymen reconstruction surgery, such as:

● Infection 
● Excessive bleeding 
● Complications related to anesthesia use
● Over-correction, leading to problematic intercourse

Side Effects

Even though the side effects differ depending on the type of method used, patients might experience pain, discomfort, and soreness.

Success Rates

The success rate of hymenoplasty operations is around 96%.

Before And After

After the hymen reconstruction surgery, during the first sexual intercourse, patients might experience some amounts of bleeding and pain.

Faq

- Is general anesthesia required for hymen reconstruction surgery? 
During the hymen reconstruction surgery, mostly local anesthesia is used. However, some of the patients may demand general anesthesia specifically.

- Which hymenoplasty surgery technique is recommended for me? 
Depending on the patient’s expectations from the operation, the type of technique is chosen. While some methods provide more permanent results, other techniques last for about a week.
- Do I need to spend the night in the hospital? 
Generally, it is not necessitated for patients to stay at the hospital after the operation.
