How would I know my hymenoplasty is successful? (Photos)

Ive undergone hymenoplasty, my sutures are all gone. They didn't dissolve after 6 weeks so my surgeon removed them, he said my hymen is fine now. But I wanna make sure, I've posted some pics of before surgery, with sutures and after recovery.

Hymenoplasty: Success

Thank you for your question.  It is difficult to evaluate based on your single photograph.  I would recommend having your surgeon evaluate.

A successful hymenoplasty scar remains intact until you have sex

The after photo is out of focus. Attempting to stretch the area to get a photo will likely break the scar in the process. Go see your surgeon.
