Failed clitoropexy - Is it safe to re-cut the same skin/try to do it again?
Doctor Answers 5
With any surgical repair, if a revision is planned, the situation is unique and the procedure customized. A careful medical review, examination and treatment plan should be done by an experienced GYN reconstructive surgeon.
There are complications associated with clitoropexy,
including reduced or absent clitoral sensation, which can affect one's ability
to obtain orgasm. The rate of
complication may increase after multiple procedures.In order to better evaluate whether the procedure could be
perform, a thorough examination would be required by an experienced cosmetic
genital surgeon.Many gynecologists and plastic surgeons do not perform
clitoropexy. As a cosmetic urologist, I
do perform clitoropexy. Best of luck.

Another failed "clitoropexy." WHY (??!) are these procedures performed, and who is performing them?! A Warning...
As for you, a "3rd repair" is rarely successful. Permanent sutures are not an option in this area.Scar tissue is scar tissue is scar tissue. It has few blood vessels and tends to not stretch or hold sutures well- the opposite of what you want for healing. I would recommend that you get at least 2 opinions fro experienced genital plastic/cosmetic surgeons; you will need to visit IN-PERSON to get the proper evaluation
Bottom line? Do not do a "Clitoropexy" unless there is a definite indication; explore other surgical or non-surgical options first!
