Hymenoplasty, also known as hymen restoration surgery is an intervention that is responsible for rebuilding the membrane of skin in the lower half of the vagina (known as hymen). This fibrous and elastic tissue tears with the first sexual penetration of women, but can also be broken by an accidental drop, shake, or even by using tampons. Generally, patients who require this type of operation to recapture the original state of the hymen for cultural or religious reasons. The surgical procedure is quite simple and involves reconstruction of the hymen by fine sutures. If there are still remnants of the original hymen restoration on it is practiced, but a section of the lining of the vaginal wall is made to build a new hymen. The stitches will fall alone and the patient can have sex after about one month.
