Réparation chirurgicale des mutilations sexuelles : étude de la satisfaction en terme d’anatomie, de sexualité et d’identité féminine

Abstract : Objective : In 2016 more than 200 million women over the world are subjected to genital mutilation. This results in anatomical, psychological, sexual, and obstetrical repercussions. Since about 15 years ago, it is possible to have clitoris reconstructive surgery. Surgery is now proposed after a multidisciplinary care meeting has taken place. The purpose of our study was to investigate whether the women who received reconstructive surgery were satisfied from an anatomical, functional, and female identity point of view. Methods : The study was conducted using a retrospective bicentric study in two gynaecology wards in public hospitals in the inner suburbs of Paris. 25 patients were interviewed using a self-questionnaire. The patients had received reconstructive surgery between January 2012 and January 2017 and questions were related to their feelings about their anatomy, sexuality and female identity both before and after the reconstructive surgery was carried out. Results and conclusion : The results show a global satisfaction and an improved satisfaction between pre-operative and post-operative period for genital mutilation victims. Depending of the major motivation, patient’s satisfaction was 87% for anatomical main concern, 77% for sexual concern or 67% for female identity concern.
