Hymenoplasty is a simple surgical procedure involving reconstruction of the hymen (a thin membrane inside the vagina. The Hymen usually breaks during initial instances of sexual intercourse). Hymenoplasty or hymen reconstruction surgery or Revirgination procedure or Vaginoplasty is the surgical restoration of the hymen.
The normal aim is to cause bleeding during post-nuptial intercourse, which in some cultures is considered proof of virginity. Some hymen reconstruction operations are legal in some countries, while other countries ban all hymenorrhaphy.
An intact hymen is widely considered a sign of virginity, which is a moral in a lot of religions.
The surgery last for around 30-45 minutes
The Hymen breaks during initial occurrences of sexual intercourse. However, the Hymen may also break during physical sports.
Using a surgical technique, the torn edges of the hymen are put back together. If done correctly, to the visible eye, there is no scarring and the hymen appears intact. After this type of hymen surgery, subsequent intercourse will typically tear the membrane causing pain and bleeding.
The dissolvable stitches are used to reconnect the skin membrane that once partially covered the opening tothe vagina.
There are no risks of hymen reconstruction (hymenoplasty), and is always without any complications.
The recovery time is less than a day. After the hymenoplasty operation, the patient can return to work next day and complete healing takes approximately 6-8 weeks.
Hospital stay is only 5-6 hrs.
In case of any fever, stomach pains, bleeding or rejection from the body, contact the doctor immediately
