Hymenoplasty (Revirgination) Surgery in NYC
What is hymenoplasty treatment?
The hymen is a small piece of skin that covers part of the opening of the vagina. Usually, the hymen stretches or tears after a woman becomes sexually active. When the hymen breaks due to sexual intercourse, falling on a sharp object, or inserting an object into the vagina, a procedure called a hymenoplasty — also sometimes referred to as revirgination — can be performed to repair the hymen and restore the natural state of the vagina.
The hymenoplasty procedure is often used for religious or cultural reasons. Regardless of a patient’s personal reasons for wanting the procedure, New York Center for Aesthetic Rejuvenation is dedicated to helping you make an informed decision with the strictest patient confidentiality during all consultations. We are dedicated to ensuring that you are comfortable and well informed during your decision-making process.
Why is hymenoplasty performed?
Hymenoplasty is performed to repair the hymen and restore the appearance of the vaginal opening. You may be a good candidate for revirgination if you have suffered from damage to the hymen due to any of the following:
- Sexual intercourse
- Fall onto a sharp object
- Inserting an object in the vagina
What does hymen repair surgery involve?
A hymenoplasty — not to be confused with a hymenotomy or hymenectomy, which is the removal of the hymen tissue — is a surgical procedure that repairs the hymen. Usually, during this procedure the torn portions of the hymen tissue are sutured back together using small, dissolvable stitches. Sometimes, when necessary, your surgeon may need to use a small portion of tissue from another area of the vagina in order to replace the torn hymen, though this is less likely.
After the surgery, which takes around an hour to complete, you may experience some soreness and pain, which usually subsides quickly.
Will I have scarring after hymen repair surgery?
In most cases, patients do not have any visible scarring because the stitching is all done on the inside of the vagina. After full recovery and healing (with careful attention to your aftercare instructions), there is usually no indication that surgery has been performed.
