Hymen Repair Surgery
The hymen is a thin tissue that encloses the vaginal wall and is linked to a woman losing her virginity. While sexual intercourse for the first time will tear or break the hymen, many other events can cause a hymen to be torn or broken. For women who have a torn hymen and desire to have it repaired for cultural, religious or personal reasons, Dr. John Anastasatos at Los Angeles Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills, CA, offers hymen repair surgery.
The hymen is very delicate and can be damaged through many other activities other than sexual intercourse. Horseback riding, contact sports, falls and even medical exams can cause a hymen to tear. For women who belong to certain cultures or other belief systems that attribute value to an intact hymen, hymen repair surgery can restore a hymen for her matrimonial night or first sexual experience.
Dr. John Anastasatos is a board certified plastic surgeon with decades of experience performing intricate cosmetic surgeries. As a hymenoplasty specialist, he can discreetly and confidentially perform hymen repair surgery. Dr. Anastasatos can either repair a recently torn hymen, stitching the pieces together to allow it to reform and heal, or create a new hymen from a piece of vaginal tissue. Both types of hymen reconstructions will completely heal in about six weeks, so it is important to allow enough time between the procedure and the wedding or matrimony ceremony for recovery.
A hymenoplasty can restore a broken hymen that feels and reacts the same as the original hymen.
