Hymenoplasty in Delhi
An intact hymen was a symbol of virginity long ago and therefore had significance in most societies/ cultures as a proof of being a virgin.
The hymen gets ruptured in sporting activities, biking, dancing and vaginal sex. The fact that the hymen gets ruptured in non sexual physical activities has led to the nullification of the hymen’s significance. Even in this context, hymen repair is sought after sometimes by women before marriage for personal reasons. A ruptured hymen can be restored by hymen repair surgery- Hymenoplasty/ hymenoraphy/ re-virgination surgery.
The remnants of the hymen are visualized and sutured together to recreate the hymen without any visible scars.The sutures dissolve away in 2-3 weeks. Adequate outlet is left for menstural blood to come out.
The Hymenoplasty surgery is performed under local anesthesia
Recovery after hymen repair
The Hymenoplasty/ re-virgination surgery is a day care procedure and does not require hospital admission. For out of town patients, one night stay in hospital after surgery will be more convenient. Normal activities can be resumed from next day. Gym / weight lifting/ riding bikes should be avoided for 4 weeks after hymen repair surgery. Vaginal sex can be started after 4 – 6 weeks.
The Hymenoplasty surgery should be done at least 6 weeks before marriage.
