Hymenoplasty or hymen reconstruction is the surgical procedure of restorating the hymen, a thin, pinkish colored membrane which partially covers the vaginal entrance. Hymen is is a part of the vulva and is located approximately half an inch inside the vagina.
The function of the hymen is exactly unknown. But, the hymen is considered to act as a barrier which prevents the external sources of infection from entering the vagina until puberty. The hymen generally ruptures during the first sexual intercourse. However, the hymen can also get torn at any age due to strenuous activities like bicycling, horseback riding and gymnastics. Using tampons can also, sometimes, break the hymen. Some females are even born without an intact hymen.
Pristyn Care provides the best hymenoplasty surgery. The doctors are highly dedicated and experienced to provide the best treatment and assistance to all the patients. The procedure of hymenoplasty aims at restoring the elasticity of the hymen and lasts for about 40-minutes. Stay assured, all personal and medical details of each patient are kept highly confidential.
The patient will have to consult the gynecologist once before the surgery. The gynecologist needs to physically examine the patient to ensure she is fit to undergo the surgery.
The surgery is performed under local or general anesthesia, as per the choice of patients. The female is then settled in the lithotomy position for the surgery. The surgery is performed by firstly joining the torn remnants of the hymen. The doctor will then make a transverse incision in the vestibular mucosa, posterior to the vaginal wall. The broken tags of hymen are united using self-dissolvable sutures. The sutures generally take 15-21 days to dissolve completely. After the surgery, the patient is advised to keep her intimate areas clean and apply the ointment prescribed by the gynecologist regularly.
The patient should make sure to maintain proper hygiene, wear loose fitting clothes and avoid using irritants or scented sprays or washes around the vaginal area after the surgery.
In Our Doctor's Word
15 Years Experience
"An unbroken hymen is still a measure of virginity in India. While it has no medical basis, a lot of women opt for dubious medicines and blood capsules because of the family pressure. But these are highly unsafe. Who knows what is inside them? They can severely disturb your Ph balance and cause dryness and itching. Also, these are false promises. A hymen can never be repaired without a surgery. At times, these capsules don't even break and cause severe infections. So if you must, hymenoplasty is your safest choice. The procedure is quick, safe and medically verified and chances of complications- extremely rare."

Bed rest is not required after the surgery. Although, the gynecologist recommends the patients to avoid exertion around the vagina. The stitches dissolve in about 21-24 days. The patient should avoid any extra strain around the vaginal area or the inner thighs, until the stitches completely heal and dissolve. The doctors at Pristyn Care provide a special set of instructions to follow post the surgery.

Virginity is nothing but a social concept usually understood as the breaking of the hymen. If you want to reconstruct a broken hymen, you can undergo a hymenoplasty procedure. It is an effective and clinically proven way to stitch together all the loosened ends of the broken hymen and reconstruct it as it was before
Revirginisation is usually understood as the artificial reconstruction of hymen. And unfortunately, no home remedies, fruits, or herbs can regrow the hymen without surgery. The only effective and clinically proven method to reconstruct a hymen is- hymenoplasty.
Virginity capsules (also known as blood capsules) are penetrative capsules sold with artificial colour. They are usually sold as a way to fake hymen tear and bleeding after sexual intercourse. And no, they are not effective. In fact, they are heavily unpopular for disturbing the natural Ph balance of the vaginal area and cause incessant vaginal itching, dryness, foul smell, and bacterial infections.
The only clinically verified way to rebuild a hymen is hymenoplasty.
Yes. Hymenoplasty is legal in India. If you are thinking of a hymen repair surgery, and are looking for a confidential procedure, we suggest you call us directly and our experts will guide you through the entire process.
Hymenoplasty (also commonly known as revirginization surgery) can be performed at both- gyne clinics and hospitals.
Both gynecologists and plastic surgeons can perform a hymenoplasty. However, a gynecologist with core experience in cosmetic-gynecology or obstetrics-gynecology is the most ideal choice.
The certifications of a hymenoplasty surgeon must include one/ more of the following qualifications:
The sooner, the better! Hymenoplasty takes around 1- 1.5 months to heal completely and prepare for penetration. Therefore, it is a good decision to get it done at least 2 months before your planned event. However, since hymen does not automatically break unless penetrated through a vaginal activity or undergoing strenuous physical exercises, getting it done early would free you of stress and unwanted anxiety.
Typically, a hymenoplasty surgery should not take more than 30 minutes to complete.
No. Hymenoplasty is typically performed on an outpatient basis. That is, you can leave the same day after a little rest. Hospital stay is not mandatory.
No, nobody can promise you definite bleeding through your reconstructed hymen on your first night. The hymen is an elastic membrane, and at times, it may just stretch and not break in the first intercourse. In others, it may break after some time, while in yet others- not break at all. However, what it can promise is- 100% guarantee of its complete construction and a tight flap life effect on intercourse- which is precisely what you or your partner might be looking for.
No. Hymenoplasty is a surgery focussed only on the reconstruction of the hymen. If you feel you have a loosened vagina, we suggest you go for laser vaginal tightening. It is a safe and painless procedure that can be completed in 2-3 sessions (depending on your laxity). It is completely scarless and takes only 10-15 minutes per session.
No, hymen repair surgery is performed on the external vaginal area while all the reproductive organs like the uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes lie much above it, after the cervix. Since no reproductive organ/ tissue is disturbed through the hymen repair process, it has no negative or positive side effect on a woman’s fertility.
Hymenoplasty as a process can be very critical and personal in nature. It generally triggers a lot of discomfort and anxiety. We understand. This is why Pristyn Care ensures a hundred percent privacy and confidentiality throughout the process and after.
Hymenoplasty is a minimally invasive surgery and many women resume work the very next day. However, medically, it is common for women to experience vaginal discharge, spotting, and a little discomfort in the first 24-48 hours. This is why, if possible, we suggest you take a little break and rest for at least a day or two.
Complete recovery after hymenoplasty takes around 5-6 weeks. Therefore, doctors suggest you wait until 1.5-2 months before your first sexual intercourse after hymenoplasty.
No, medically or otherwise, there is no possible way to distinguish between a natural or surgically recreated hymen. Therefore, it is impossible for your partner to know the same unless informed so.
Yes, a repeated hymenoplasty is both possible and safe. However multiple repetitions of hymenoplasty (more than twice) are not recommended under medical sciences as it could result in various infections and gynecological complications.
The female has to maintain proper hygiene and wear loose fitting clothes after the surgery. Avoid using irritants or scented sprays or washes around the vaginal area.
There are many women who decide to get the hymenoplasty by their own will to become a virgin again. The hymenoplasty surgery is a completely safe procedure with no risks or long term side effects. However, some patients may have minor complications post surgery. The complications may vary from patient to patient. Some women may want to regain their virginity.

Women in Raipur are matching steps with the advancing technology and are strongly focused on being fit and active. Many times, due to excessive physical exertion or due to excessive stretching during physical activities, the hymen tears. It is not dangerous for the female’s health. If there is any injury or harm due to any such incident, the gynecologist recommends surgery to repair it. The hymenoplasty surgery is performed in that case. On the other hand, some women also choose to get this surgery for personal reasons.

When performed under safe medical conditions and by trained gynecologists, hymenoplasty is a typically safe and minimum risk surgery. However, as with any surgery, hymenoplasty too comes with a few risks of complications. These include-
Please note that these complications are extremely rare and commonly treatable with minimally invasive surgery.
Hymens come in a variety of shapes and sizes. There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all hymen. There are five different types of hymen, according to medical classification:
No. In fact, you must refrain from such over-the-counter products as they may do more harm than good. Vagina, as you know, is a very delicate and sensitive organ. Inserting anything while the ingredients are not researched, may disturb its Ph balance and cause dryness. This would then risk tear or rupture during intercourse and itchiness and bacterial infection afterward.
If you seek a reconstructed hymen, hymen repair is the best, most common, and medically verified method. It is:
