Is my hymen surgery a success? (Photo)

Dear doctor, I underwent a hymenoplasty a week ago. When I checked my vaginal area today, I could see a thread hanging from the lowest side of the vagina and it looks as if the lower 2/3 of vagina is split into two. I cannot see any other sutures. Is this a success or should I redo the surgery?

Thank you for your question.  Additional photographs or a physical examination would be necessary to properly answer this question.

Digging your fingers into your vagina to look at your hymenoplasty scar is foolish and dangerous

Keep your hands out of your vagina if you've recently had a hymenoplasty. Go see your surgeon and have them take a look. The only thing you will accomplish is to break your own scar.
