Hymenoplasty or hymen repair, is a simple operation which involves the surgical repair of the torn hymen. It includes the removal of the torn edges before stitching the hymen back in place with fine dissolvable sutures.
The hymen is a thick membranous layer of tissue which encircles the inside of the vaginal entrance and allows the escape of menstrual blood. While some hymens are so elastic that they do not tear even during intercourse, we know that for most women the hymen is usually torn at the lower part during first intercourse, after tampon insertion, or through some exercises.
Hymen repair is often performed under local anaesthetic with sedation, but can also be performed under general anaesthetic if a patient prefers. This surgery is minimally invasive and is a day case procedure. The hymen has a secondary layer that can be sown up to cover the torn skin. As it grafts together once more, the hymen will appear intact. If for any reason this is not possible then a new hymen can be created from the lip of the vagina.
Although many women are too embarrassed to raise the issue with a surgeon, the good news is that an effective, straightforward solution exists to correct this condition and can be treated discreetly.

Hymenoplasty costs can widely vary. The average fee referenced above is only part of the total cost – it does not include anesthesia, operating room facilities or other related expenses.
A surgeon's fee for hymenoplasty will be based on his or her experience, the type of procedure used and the geographic office location.
Most health insurance plans do not cover hymenoplasty or its complications, but many plastic surgeons offer patient financing plans, so be sure to ask.
Hymenoplasty is a relatively safe procedure that tends to carry few risks and side effects. However any operation carries a small risk of infection and prolonged bleeding, as well as those associated with anaesthetic.
Any complication from the hymen repair surgery itself is very rare. Occasionally there is a resulting problem of hymen tightness or hymen over-correction. This is where the opening becomes narrowed, meaning that the next act of intercourse will be difficult. However this rarely causes problems in the long-term
We’d recommend at least 30 days between the operation and having sexual intercourse for the first time again.
The procedure takes approximately 30-45 minutes.
