Simply explained, hymenoplasty, also known as hymenorrhaphy, is the cosmetic repair, restoration, or construction of a woman’s hymen. Restoration of the hymen is also referred to as revirginization. Reasons for seeking this procedure are varied, and may be physical or psychological. Hymenoplasty is a simple procedure that can be done in our clinic under local anesthesia. Any torn skin around the edges of the hymen is gently and neatly cut away, after which the remaining tissue is stitched together, leaving a small opening. This restores the hymenal ring to a normal size and shape.
Depending on why you might request hymenoplasty, this may be a delicate subject to discuss. Rest assured that at LIPS Clinic our doctors are familiar with the many reasons patients ask for this procedure, and fully understand any discomfort or shyness in regard to this subject. It’s your body. We want to help make you as comfortable and confident with it as possible.
