HYMENOPLASTY: Reconstruction Of The Hymen


The hymen is a thin membrane that partially blocks the vaginal opening. Often the hymen is torn during the first experience of sexual intercourse. The hymen can also be ruptured by exercise, horseback riding, a fall, or even by tampon use.

Repair of a torn hymen is frequently done for religious or cultural reasons. At Cosmetic Gynecology Center we understand that confidentiality is extremely important.

What is Hymenoplasty?

Hymenoplasty (Hymen repair, reconstruction) is the surgical repair of the hymen. The edges of the hymen are put together using a surgical technique, creating an intact hymen that is natural in appearance and feel with no visible apparent scarring.

Women most often undergo this procedure for religious, societal, or cultural reasons, but, as with any cosmetic procedure, an individual’s reason for desiring the procedure is always highly personal.

Hymenoplasty procedure can be done in-office or an out-patient surgery center, the patient may return to normal daily activities in 1-2 days, complete healing time takes about 6-8 weeks.
