The intact hymen is considered the world over as the sign of virginity.
In India, due to social compulsions, brides are considered virgins and there is a great premium attached to virginity.
As a result, hymen restoration has become one of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures for women in India, and around the world.
In today’s world this attitude and wish for revirgination would invite cynicism from those who do not understand Indian culture. However, every culture has its peculiarities and idiosyncracies.
At Indo-American Cosmetic Surgery Centre of Chandigarh we perhaps do the largest number of hymenoplasties in India.
The purpose of this procedure is to ‘regain’ virginity surgically wherein the plastic surgeon nimbly stitches up the remnants of the torn hymen. During consummation of the wedding, a few drops of blood stain the sheet and the husband is reassured that he has won a virgin bride!
However, a few points need to be kept in mind while considering hymenoplasty-
- The procedure is best done 10 days before the wedding/ consummation.
- In case you need to fully rejuvenate the vagina with complimentary technique like reduction of protruding inner lips of the vagina and vaginal tightening, these procedures should be carried out 6 weeks before the wedding/ consummation.
- Hymenoplasty and other procedures are done under local anesthesia and you can walk out of the clinic after one hour of getting them done.
- Complete privacy is assured. Ask us how.
