What is hymenoplasty?

Undergoing surgery to repair the Hymen is usually known as Hymenoplasty. Our female consultant London Gynaecologist provide specialist treatment for women and this form of cosmetic gynaecology is done in a delicate manner to raise the morale of woman in need of hymen repair. Hymenoplasty repairs a torn hymen and it is a painless method that women experience for various reasons. 

Why hymenoplasty?

The hymen is a thick layer that encloses the vaginal opening and allows the discharge of menstrual blood. It is the physical and psychological benefit to women. By hymen reconstruction, a woman can serve from reconstructed virginity, although sexual activity may not always be the cause why hymen is torn. Vigorous physical activities such as horse riding or gymnastics or the insertion of a tampon have also been known to reason the hymen to tear. 

Mrs Sarah Hussain is the leading consultant gynaecologist who specialises in intricate and discrete gynaecological surgeries in hymenoplasty having huge experience. 

What is the hymenoplasty procedure?

The procedure will depend on the size of the tear. If it is the tissue ends slightly cut, then re-stitching is performed to allow the hymen to naturally heal. This, still, will not be possible if the hymen is fully torn. If that is the case then the cut, the damaged membrane must be removed before a new hymen created out of tissue in the vagina lip. This will compete with the hymen in its original, unbroken condition and will, therefore, bleed if torn again. A painless treatment which usually takes about an hour of surgery requires only one visit to the female gynaecologist.
