Hymenoplasty is a cosmetic surgery that re-establishes the integrity of a torn hymen. It is often understood as hymen repair, reconstruction, and restoration surgery. It is also popularly called as Revirgination. The hymen that blocks the vaginal entrance gets torn due to varied reasons. It can be because of sexual intercourse or due to heavy physical activities like sports. Many people want to restore the hymen to have a more youthful feeling.
