Hymenoplasty, or hymen repair surgery, reconstructs a torn hymen. It is an elective surgery but can be life-saving in many countries due to social reasons. The surgery is banned in many countries and called “vaginal repair” in others. The goal of surgery is the reapproximating of the hymeneal edges that were once together. It works best for women who have not had vaginal birth. For best results, those who have had vaginal birth should consider a vaginoplasty and perineoplasty to go along with the surgery to achieve a pre-pregnancy appearance and function.
I developed the Pillar Technique (aka Alinsod Denuding Hymenoplasty) using ultra fine radiosurgery to create consistent and virtually undetectable results. Most of my patients come from the Middle East and Africa. The ultimate goal of surgery is to bleed during first intercourse. It takes me an hour to complete this surgery.
