If you wish to respect traditions that require a woman to be a virgin for her wedding night, make an appointment with Dr Jospeh Bou-Merhi, at the Centre de Chirurgie Plastique de l’Île-des-Sœurs, to discuss hymenoplasty. This surgery to reconstruct the hymen is also offered to women who were victims of sexual aggression, as part of a process of psychological and emotional reconstruction.
Hymenoplasty is performed under local anesthesia, although general anesthesia is possible. The reconstitution of the membrane involves a procedure that takes about half an hour. The return home is the same day and patients resume work the next day. One month is necessary for complete healing, but sexual intercourse may take place in the following days. Contrary to popular belief, tearing the hymen during penetration is not necessarily accompanied by blood loss. On the other hand, the natural resistance is really felt following a hymenoplasty. Throughout your convalescence, carefully follow all the hygiene advice prescribed by your surgeon.
