Hymenoplasty or hymenorrhaphy is the surgical reconstruction of the hymen, being strictly a cosmetic procedure that the highly experienced plastic surgeons at Renew Skin & Health Clinic can perform at the highest standards and with minimal to no risks involved.
There are several reasons why female patients request the hymenoplasty procedure, of which the most prevalent is the cultural or religious aspect. As an intact hymen is perceived as a token of virginity which is essential in a new marriage, most women will undergo the hymenoplasty procedure to avoid the annulment of such an important event. But a torn hymen is not always caused by intercourse, as there are multiple cases where this may occur with tampon use, vigorous exercise or physical strain (bike or horse riding).
Another reason why women undergo hymenoplasty is due to negative events such as rape, incest, sexual abuse as part of a physical and implicitly, a psychological healing process, empowering themselves to symbolically restore something that was forcefully taken from them. Last but not least, there are cases in which women perceive the hymenoplasty or hymen reconstruction surgery as a chance to offer their partners a unique gift after marriage.
But regardless of the reasons you may want to undergo this hymen repair surgery, our gynecologist surgeons and specialists are here to support and help you with your private decision from all points of view, which is also why we maintain a rigorous non-disclosure policy, for your protection and privacy. Moreover, your safety is also highly valued, that’s why you will also undergo a prior gynecological examination and a medical history assessment, so that our practitioners can set an accurate course of action in what regards the hymenoplasty procedure.

The procedure is minimally invasive, implying the stitching of the torn hymen edges with dissolvable sutures, requiring only local anesthesia with sedation, the end result being a hymen that will appear once again intact. Hymenoplasty usually lasts between 30 and 45 minutes, requires a short downtime of 1 or 2 days, with a full recovery of 6 to 8 weeks, when sexual intercourse should, of course, be avoided.
