The hymenal ring normally gets disrupted after a woman has had sexual intercourse or even after strenuous physical activity or tampon use. Sometimes, for cultural or other personal reasons (for example, an upcoming marriage), a woman would like to restore a more intact, tighter hymenal ring and experience vaginal bleeding and pain with the "first" sexual intercourse. Using a special surgical technique, our expert cosmetic and board-certified gynecological surgeon, Dr. Parag, performs hymen repair surgery to tighten and restore the hymen to a more intact, virgin-like state. Laser is available as an option. Because of a wide variation among hymenal and vaginal states, Dr. Parag customizes the hymen repair surgery or hymenoplasty to the individual needs and expectations of the patient, as are discussed during the required pre-surgical consultation and thorough gynecological examination. In most cases, the hymen repair surgery or hymenoplasty is virtually undetectable after complete healing, and our patients have been extremely pleased with Dr. Parag's amazing, very natural-looking hymen repair surgery results.
The procedure for Hymenoplasty
Patients must have a pre-surgical consultation and thorough gynecological examination prior to the surgery. Individual needs and expectations are discussed at this time. Patients are individually counseled and educated on what to expect, including possible risks, benefits, and options.
The surgery is usually performed under local anesthesia (awake). Patients may choose conscious sedation to help them feel more relaxed and comfortable. General anesthesia is an option for some patients.
