Hymenoplasty is typically performed with local anesthesia and oral sedation; IV sedation is also available, if preferred, in our AAAASF accredited office surgical suite. Benefits of local anesthesia include decreased complications from general anesthesia, quicker recovery and cost savings.
After a Hymenoplasty procedure in Cincinnati, the membrane that partially closes the opening of the vagina will be restored.
Dr. Brenner has refined the in-office Hymenoplasty using the Pronox (inhaled nitrous oxide ) and microtumescent local anesthesia.
Dr. Brenner uses the Ellman Surgitron device to make extremely precise incisions into the vaginal and remnants of the hymeneal ring to bring them into close approximation to allow delicate sutures to hold the tissue in place.
Once healed, penetrative intercourse can result in bleeding when the hymen is torn or stretched. The procedure takes approximately 60 minutes.
