For some women vaginal surgery is a means to get a virgin like experience while for some women vaginal surgery is for social, cultural, and religious reasons especially in cultures where a woman is required to be a virgin on her wedding night.

Hymen repair, hymen reconstruction, hymen surgery, hymenoplasty or revirgination is a cosmetic surgery that restores the hymen. The hymen is a ring-like membrane in the lower 1/3 of the vagina. The hymen can tear not only with first intercourse but also use of tampons or even vigorous physical activity. Hymenoplasty is a surgical procedure that gathers the remaining parts of the hymen and tightens the hymeneal ridge.

At Divine Proportions we specialize in both simple hymenoplasty and allopant procedures. These procedures are performed by our highly qualified surgeons in a comfortable setting.

The hymenoplasty procedure is performed under a local anesthesia and you can return home the same day.

  • There are types of hymenoplasty procedures. In a simple hymenoplasty the upper layer of the tissue of the areas which were torn are removed and the edges are brought back together in a star shaped ring.
  • In cases where the hymen cannot be restored, the Alloplant procedure is used. In this procedure a tear-through biomaterial is inserted which will act like the hymen.
