Vaginal Rejuvenation

What types of vaginal rejuvenation procedures are performed at the leading plastic surgery center in Beirut? Dr. Elie Abdelhak performs Hymenoplasty and Vaginoplasty.

Hymenoplasty is a surgical procedure that uses a flap of vaginal lining to reconstruct a broken hymen or, in some cases, creates one for a woman who was born without. The procedure is typically performed in order to cause bleeding during the sexual intercourse.

-The Day of Your Hymenoplasty

It is an outpatient surgery that lasts around 40 minutes and the surgical intervention is performed under local anesthesia. The identity of the patient remains unrevealed if wished.

Recovery Time

It is advisable to have the surgery done before 6 weeks prior to the day of the wedding/ sexual intercourse. You may experience some spotting for the first 48 – 72 hours, along with some discomfort.

How long will the results last?

The results are permanent and the hymen will be broken only during the next sexual intercourse.

Am I a candidate for hymenoplasty?

Hymenoplasty is ideal for those who may have torn their hymen either during sexual intercourse or sporty activities, and wish to restore their hymen.

What to expect from a hymenoplasty?

There are no visible signs of surgery and it is safe and successful.

Hymen reconstruction and repair may provide a woman with the appearance of virginity, or satisfy religious or cultural requirements.


Vaginoplasty is a plastic surgery for both the vaginal canal and the tissues of its mucous membrane that tightens. The procedure strengthens those muscles and tissues while removing excess or damaged lining from the canal.

It is specifically designed to strengthen and enhance the working of the vulva-vaginal body structures. The procedure can be undertaken as a medically required reconstructive surgery or an elective cosmetic surgery.

The Day of Your Vaginoplasty

The type of anesthesia used depends on the technique and purpose of the surgery. the latter takes between 1 and 2 hours.

Recovery Time

Most patients are cautiously up and about the afternoon of their surgery day as the anesthesia wears off. During the first 24-48 hours after surgery, patients should place ice packs or frozen peas on their incisions to minimize swelling and bruising. Routine tasks are encouraged as long as there is no irritation or pressure at the incision sites and heavy lifting must be avoided. By 72 hours you may resume regular activities, making sure there is minimal friction to the incisions. Patients may drive after 2 days as long as they are not taking narcotics. Patients may return to work within 4 days as long as rigorous physical activity is avoided, although a week off is ideal. During the 6 week recovery, patients are on pelvic rest (no intercourse or tampons) and should avoid bath tubs/hot tubs or swimming in the lake or ocean. Rigorous exercise and activity should be avoided during the recovery period.

How long will the results last?

The results of vaginal rejuvenation typically last for a lifetime, unless a new vaginal delivery reverses its affects. As we age, all parts of the body relax slightly but the vaginal area should never return to the degree of relaxation experienced prior to surgery. The aging process involves muscle, tissue, and skin throughout the entire body.
