Hymen restoration surgery or Hymenoplasty or Hymen repair surgery popularly known as the operation to get virginity back is a simple plastic surgery procedure used for reconstructing the hymen of women who need to have their virginity restored for cultural, social and ethical reasons.
Hymenoplasty or hymen repair surgery takes somewhere around 30 min to an hour, performed while the patient is under local anaesthesia with sedation or under general anaesthesia. It is usually performed on an outpatient basis.
The plastic surgeon stitches the edges of the remaining hymen which grows back again to the same natural hymen like earlier. The surgery also gives a feeling of the tightness of the area . If the hymeneal remnants are not big enough to be used for the reconstruction, the surgeon will reduce the opening of the vagina using a small portion of the vaginal mucous tissue. During the first intercourse, there will be a small rupture of this newly reconstructed hymen that will be very similar to the rupture of a natural hymen.
