My hymen stretched (widening) after completely healing - I had hymenoplasty 1 year ago. What can i do now?

Thank you for your question. A hymenoplasty can be revised. This typical outpatient procedure can be performed by a cosmetic genital surgeon and travel may be necessary to find the right surgeon.

You can revise your hymenoplasty
If your hymenplasty widened on it's own and it wasn't because you had sex or put anything in the vagina then perhaps a more extensive reconstruction is needed. Be aware that the area will have more scarring due to the previous surgery and will be less likely to bleed afterwards.
