The hymen is a piece of membrane that partially covers the opening of the vagina. This membrane is regularly torn after having sexual intercourse for the first time, but it can also break on its own from a variety of activities. Bike riding, using tampons and playing sports can all cause the hymen to tear on its own. Since an intact hymen is an important sign of virginity in many cultures and religions, many women seek to restore it with a medical procedure called hymenoplasty.
A hymenoplasty is a surgical procedure that will restore the appearance of your hymen. Once the surgery is completed, nobody will be able to tell that the membrane had been previously torn. If you are a completely healthy woman that has a strong desire to reconstruct and restore your hymen, then you are likely an excellent candidate for this surgery. A health evaluation will be done at the consultation appointment to ensure you are healthy enough to endure the surgery. You will also get to discuss your thoughts and expectations during this consultation appointment.
This is an outpatient procedure that is performed in the comfort of our state-of-the-art surgical suite. You will be able to go home shortly after the hymenoplasty is completed. It is important to follow our team’s instructions regarding healing for optimal results. It is crucial that you take extra precautions to protect the hymen during your recovery. Resting and avoiding any rigorous activity is the best way to protect your body while healing.
Once you have fully recovered, you will be able to enjoy the results of your procedure. If you follow all of the recovery guidelines, then your hymen should remain restored until you have sexual intercourse for the first time after the surgery.
