Hymnoplasty is a surgical procedure which restores a women’s hymen, in effect restoring her virginity. The reasons to get hymnoplasty done can be varied but generally they are social or cultural in nature.

Some cultures like those in India and Middle East place high value on a young women being a virgin on her wedding night. Unfortunately sometimes this can lead to some serious consequences for the girl and her family; especially if there is no tell tale sign of a little bleeding during the first sexual intercourse between the newly weds.
