It is also called hymen repair or hymen reconstruction. It is also known as revirginisation. It is performed to reconstruct or repair the thin membrane which partially covers the opening of the vagina. It generally breaks during intercourse but it can also break as a result of exercising and physical activities.
Something as common as inserting a tampon also can break it. Most of the women undergoing this treatment do so for religious and cultural reasons. In some societies, a broken hymen is considered to be a sign of promiscuous behavior. Women are forced to go for hymenoplasty because of stigma attached to a broken hymen.
Advanced surgical techniques are used for hymenoplasty. It is performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia or sedation, whatever the surgeon chooses. It is a very simple procedure and takes around 1 or 2 hours. Patients can resume work the next day. It is best to go to a certified surgeon and discuss everything in detail.
