What is Hymenoplasty?
This surgery is the reconstruction or repair of the broken hymen.
Why is Hymenoplasty Performed?
Cultural, religious, or social reasons are the primary factors involved when a woman contemplates this procedure. Hymenoplasty is performed to make the patient appear virgin like.
Who is a Candidate for Hymen Restoration?
Women who have not given birth vaginally, and preferably, who have never been pregnant.
Extremely precise and delicate incisions are made into the vagina and remains of the hymen ring are brought into close approximation to allow delicate sutures to hold these tissues together and in place. Once healed, penetration or sexual intercourse can result in bleeding when the hymen is torn or stretched. Hymenoplasty can be done in the office under local anesthesia. This procedure takes 60 minutes to perform. Hymeonplasty costs start at $3000.
