hymenoplasty ~ hymen restoration in London, Kent, Essex
Hymen repair surgery carried out in our private hospital
Hymenoplasty is designed to repair and reconstruct the thin, ring-like skin membrane partially covering the opening of the vagina, known as the hymen. While some hymens are so elastic that they do not tear even during sex, most women experience tearing at 5, 6 or 7 o’clock during tampon insertion or first sexual intercourse. Sometimes the hymen can even be broken during vigorous exercise. Actually, inherent deficiencies may be present in 40-50% of women.
In spite of this, the hymen is taken to be a token of virginity in many cultures, and can be an important factor in new marriages. Many times, marriages have even been known to be annulled if a hymen is not intact. Now that Hymenoplasty (surgical hymen repair) is readily available and relatively safe, many women and families now regard the procedure as an effective solution.
Our Hymen repair procedure is carried out in our own private hospital giving you extra peace of mind that you are treated in strict privacy. The Belvedere Clinic have undergone Hymen repair to thousands of women over the last 30 years and understand the need for confidentiality.

Assuming you want to go ahead, your surgeon will most probably need to examine you, in order to establish the extent of your hymen damage and the best way to repair it. You can bring whoever you wish along with you to the consultation and they will be more than welcome during the examination if you would like. On the other hand, if this is something you are seeking to conduct solely on your own, then rest assured that surgeons are required to adhere to strict standards of confidentiality and discretion.
