– De-infibulation (Pharaonic infibulation – Type III الختان الفرعوني ):
Infibulation, is a tradition of covering most of the vaginal orifice with a skin seal, by cutting and suturing the labia minora and majora together on both sides.
De-fibulation (cutting the skin seal) is required before child delivery, vaginal surgery, and sometimes before marriage. Women with Pharaonic circumcision (type III) describe cosmetic and functional improvements after a de-dibulation procedure.
De-fibulation, is a simple procedure performed under local anesthesia, takes about 30 – 40 minutes, providing functional improvement and aesthetic enhancement of the vulva.
– Clitoral Reconstructive Surgery (CRS) after FGM/C ترميم البظر :
The clitoris is an 8 -12 cm organ, most of it is located buried within the body, only a small portion (glans & part of the body) which is felt by touch, is amputated during circumcision.
Clitoral Reconstructive Surgery (neo-clitoral glans), has provided improved sexual function in some women. Sexual desire, arousal, lubrication, orgasm intensity, and pain reduction are also improved by removing peri-clitoral fibrosis (De-gloving), thus making the clitoris more sensitive and accessible to stimulation.
This highly specialized surgery together with several Non-Surgical Therapies, improve clitoral blood flow and nerve fiber regeneration. Marked psycho-sexual improvement has also been noted in enhanced self esteem, self confidence, partner relationship and quality of life. It usually take several months for the full benefits to manifest improvement.
