About the Procedure
The hymenoplasty procedure (to reconstruction the hymen), is after using local anesthesic for tissue dissection and to stop small blood vessels from bleeding, the areas which were torn are “denuded” meaning the upper layer of tissue is removed. This is so that they will grow back together when they are approximated with stitches. Then after they are denuded, the edges are brought back together to reform the star-shaped “ring” as it was prior to relations, accident etc. It is made small enough, so that when first sexual relations occur later on, it will “tear” again, there will be some pain, and there will be bleeding.
