A thin membrane called the hymen partially conceals a woman’s vaginal entrance. Contrary to popular belief, a woman’s hymen can be disrupted by tampons, certain sports, or even her natural lack if she has never engaged in sexual activity. For patients who desire the restoration of their hymen for cultural or private reasons, The damaged edges of the membrane will be repaired via a hymenoplasty, or hymen reconstruction procedure, to prevent the hymen from rupturing and bleeding during the subsequent penetration.


With a light sedative, also referred to as twilight sedation, hymenoplasty is performed as an outpatient operation. Dr. Manwani locates the broken hymen’s edges and repairs it with dissolvable stitches so that it once again partially covers the vaginal opening. 

The treatment typically lasts less than an hour. Hymens can be recreated from the vaginal lining if there is insufficient tissue to do so; however, this is a more involved and expensive process. Dr. Manwani will evaluate the hymen and the vagina before making a choice.


Since hymenoplasty surgery is an outpatient treatment, the patient does not need to stay in the hospital for a long period of time. After at least two to three hours of observation, the patient is released.

After being released from the hospital, the patient should take it easy for a few days before returning to normal activities that won’t put undue strain on their bodies. A patient’s full recovery from surgery typically takes 5–6 weeks. The doctor is likely to advise her on how to heal and discuss the safety measures that must be followed while recovering, such as:

  • Take prescribed medicines to prevent pain or infection at the surgical site or in and around the vagina.
  • Keep the genital area clean and dry. Wash and pat it dry after urination.
  • Abstain from sexual activities for 6-8 weeks after the surgery or until the wound completely heals.
  • If there is pain or swelling post-surgery, use ice packs or warm compress to soothe the area.
  • Do not insert tampons or menstrual cups until the doctor deems it fit to do so.
  • In case of any bleeding, burning, itching, or persistent swelling in the surgical site, check with the gynecologist without delay.

The majority of individuals experience a smooth recovery from hymenoplasty surgery. The healing period may be a little longer and a little more uncomfortable for ladies with more compressed vaginal tissues.
