Hymenoplasty is a type of female genital plastic surgery treatment designed to restore the hymen to represent virginity. This procedure is requested by women for a variety of reasons-- mainly cultural or religious. Many cultures think of the hymen is a proof of morality and ethical behavior in social relationships.
The surgery is not only specific to conservative Eastern cultures, some women in western world seek this surgery as a way to celebrate their marriage and to give their husband the gift of ‘virginity’ on their wedding night.
The virginity of a woman is valued for religious, cultural, social and economic reasons. Hymen gets disrupted and bleeding occurs after a woman’s first sexual encounter; but it can also tear with use of a tampon or due strenuous physical activity. Severe rapture of the hymen is often associated with trauma and a tear in vaginal region reaching up to the hymen.
This genital plastic surgery treatment is carried out on an outpatient basis, which approximately lasts about an hour to reconstruct the skin membrane partially in order to cover the vaginal opening.
Best candidates for hymenoplasty are women wishing to improve the appearance of their hymen and to achieve emotional stability in their relationships.
Not only do plastic surgery destinations abroad allow you to save on your treatment, they serve as a refuge for patients who want to maintain their anonymity and to be treated in a private confidential manner.
Hymenoplasty is a very simple, one-day procedure which doesn’t involve intricate treatment techniques.
However some plastic surgery clinics in the US and Europe take advantage of the sensitive nature of the treatment and charge patients unreasonable costs. Hymenoplasty abroad is among the most cost effective plastic surgery treatments due to the lower cost of living in many of medical tourist destinations and the cheaper overhead charges.
