What is the permanent change taken after hymenoplasty? What is the precaution taken after hymen to heal well?

A reconstructed hymen is a temporary structure designed to break the next time you have sex

Hymenoplasty does not permanently close the hymen. It will break the first time you have sex after the procedure. Until you have sex, you should avoid all vaginal penetration of any kind.

Hymenoplasty to Reconstruct the Hymen

Thank you for your question.  To reduce the risk of injury to the reconstructed hymen, one should prevent penetration of the hymen and insertion of anything into the vagina.  Best of luck.
