The Result

How it’s done

The hymen, also known as the cherry, is a thin, elastic membrane consisting of fine fibers that partially blocks the vaginal opening. It is shaped like a ring and covers the vaginal opening. Discharge and menstrual blood can flow out through the opening of the ring.

Torn hymen
Reconstructed hymen

The function of the hymen is not entirely clear. Some scientists speculate it is supposed to protect the vagina against infections or foreign bodies during childhood. The hymen can tear not only during a woman’s first sexual encounter or by inserting a tampon, but also during sports, gymnastics, riding, cycling etc.

The hymen usually tears in a star shape in the first instance of sexual intercourse. The villiform remains of the hymen are separated using a fine laser and reassembled to form a ring-shaped membrane once again. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia and takes about one to one-and-a-half hours.
