Press Release Summary: Hymenoplasty or the revirgination surgery is done commonly in
Chandigarh. This procedure which has been termed as \"immaculate deception\", is
becoming popular in the north Indian community simply because of the change in the
lifestyle of the new generation of a conservative and sexist society.

Press Release Body: While premarital sex is quite common, virginity is still an
important issue in Indian marriages. An increasing number of women are opting for
hymenoplasty in cities in northern India.
Most of these women, provide false addresses and telephone numbers. They seem to be
living a life of dilemma - on the one hand, they believe in asserting their sexual
needs and, on the other, are succumbing to traditional views.

The hymen is a thin, delicate membrane (a membrane is like skin but much thinner).
It partially covers the opening of the vagina in most girls.
The social function of the hymen, has been and still is a mythical symbol of
virginity in many cultures. Many girls and teens tear their hymen
during first intercourse,while participating in sports like bicycling, horseback
riding, gymnastics or inserting tampons, or while masturbating.

Surgeon restore hymens for cultural reasons - very important situation for some
women, and this operation quite honestly saves lives.The hymen is reconstructed by
piecing together its remnants if it is not too damaged, restoring its original
appearance as a circular membrane with a central opening.This is a simple day care
surgery. Recovery time is few weeks. Subsequent intercourse will tear the membrane
causing pain and bleeding, which is the desired end result of this surgery.
