Do you think hymenorrhaphy (=re-suturing the hymen) should be encouraged?
Is it a sexist form of "mutilation" that encourages the domination of women and the promotion of "virginity" as a virtue that is worth more than reality?
Is it acceptable in such cases as after a rape?

Down there, in women

Edit: alternative answer: it is an elective surgery mostly encountered in the USA, Japan, Europe, sometimes as part of a rejuvination down there, or just to re-capture the illusion of virginity (sometimes before marriage). It can sometimes be imposed by circumstances in the upper class of developing countries (China/India).

It's plastic surgery to restore a ruptured hymen.?
Why not if a woman wants to get it done herself ?

"it is not possible to confirm that a girl or woman is or is not a virgin by examining her hymen.
The hymen can break from physical activity, tampons, or from sexual intercourse."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hymen

I don't see what the purpose of this operation would be.
If it is anything to do with religion, that religion should be banned.

Blah, that question is a no brainer. Any surgery "imposed" on any person should not be encouraged and a getting your hymen fixed up is hardly a cure for the injury of rape.

I don't think rape is the only reason for the operation ?

It is mostly elective. There might some social pressure in some upper and middle classes, but no wide-spread forcing.
Also in the case of rape, it is sometimes offered to reduce the stigma, in cultures where the hymen is one of the few assets a young woman has. It does not intend to "cure the injury of rape", but mediate one of its most visible outcomes.

No.
But one could argue it is one of the few cases where it is justifiable. As in "should be reimbursed by social security in countries where there is one."
