Hymenoplasty is a common cosmetic and gynecological surgery that aims to reconstruct a torn hymen within the vagina for cultural or personal reasons.
The hymen is a thin membrane that partially closes the opening of the vagina, which is typically torn when a woman has sexual intercourse for the first time. It is extremely common, however, for the hymen to tear early in life due to reasons other than intercourse, such as heavy lifting, riding a bicycle, or even falling.
In some cultures, an intact hymen is regarded as proof of a young woman’s virginity. In such cultures, a torn hymen can negatively affect a woman’s marriage prospects, her reputation, and her life. In these cases, a woman might desire to have her hymen surgically repaired.
