What is Hymen Repair?
Hymen repair, also known as a hymenoplasty, is a personalized procedure that is designed to effectively restore damaged tissue, or create one in women who may have only a partial hymen from birth. Depending upon a patient’s needs, this surgery may be performed under local anesthesia in the office, or in the operating room with sedation or general anesthesia for optimal comfort. The procedure is generally quick with average times lasting about an hour.
During the procedure, the remaining damaged tissue is gently stitched together, allowing the hymen to naturally heal on its own. For women with w deficiency of tissue, local vaginal tissues can be mobilized to add to the hymen repair.
