The reconstruction of the hymen, called hymenoplasty, is a surgery to repair this structure. The procedure of hymenoplasty in Kanpur consists of joining the parts that, despite having broken, remain in the vaginal canal.

This type of surgery emerged in France, but quickly gained space in other European countries and also in the United States. In India, its application is recent, but it has grown every day.

What is the hymen?

The hymen is a dermal film located at the entrance to the vagina. It exists, anatomically, to protect women from the risks of genital infection. In childhood, it is a thicker and more resistant membrane. As age advances and the girl approaches puberty, she becomes thinner and less resistant. The hymen is strongest in the early years of life because the child does not yet produce enough hormones to protect the body from infection. Generally speaking, it is completely broken when a woman has sexual intercourse for the first time. In some cases, it takes more than one relationship for it to break completely.

How is the hymen reconstructed?

Hymenoplasty in Kanpur is a relatively simple and quick operation. It is performed in the hospital, using modern microsurgical techniques, such as delicate sutures and biological glue. The procedure lasts from 30 to 60 minutes. Hospital discharge happens in a short time, as soon as the effects of local anesthesia with sedation wear off. Recovery usually occurs without complications. Thus, the woman who undergoes the procedure can return to sexual practice about two weeks after the surgical intervention.

What is it for?

As the name implies, this type of operation serves to rebuild the hymen, whatever the motivation. As the hymen is usually broken as soon as sexual life begins, many women seek hymenoplasty in Kanpur to regain their virginity.

Who is it for?
