Female Genital Cosmetic Surgery in the News
Elective Vulvar Plastic Surgery Ever Warranted, and What Screening Should
Be Conducted Preoperatively?
(Excerpt from REAL Magazine, September 2005)
In this day and age when it's easier to suck your fat out than exercise it off, and women use their lunch breaks to top up on Botox, where will our quest for perfection end? Now virtually every inch of our bodies can be remodeled and improved—both inside and out—even our vaginas. REAL talks to women who had their nethers nipped and never looked back.
It might make you cringe thinking of a scalpel anywhere near your sensitive nether regions, but more and more women are opting for designer vaginas — one of the newest and fastest growing areas of plastic surgery. It may seem like the ultimate in vanity, but beauty aside, genital cosmetic surgery is often used to correct physical problems. In fact, it's not uncommon for women who have given birth to suffer from slackness in the pelvic floor and vaginal muscles. Some may even develop stress incontinence, which can be embarrassing and severely damage self-confidence.

are reduced, and vaginoplasty, or vaginal rejuvenation, where the vagina
is tightened. Often these two procedures are carried out together. The
surgery can be performed with a scalpel, or with a laser.

in the most private part of her anatomy — her genitals.
As millions of women inject Botox, reshape noses, augment breasts, lift buttocks and suck away unwanted fat, a growing number are now exploring a new frontier, genital plastic surgery.

Surgery to reshape the labia and other areas of the vagina is picking up fast, say plastic surgeons. While some women undergo the operations to improve comfort, many want to conform to ideals set by the porn industry.
LOS ANGELES (WOMENSENEWS)--She was 20 years old and had
never contemplated plastic surgery. But one day at the gym, the pretty,
smooth-faced receptionist in a Los Angeles doctor's office looked at her
vagina and noticed that her inner vaginal labia stuck out past her outer
labia. She was horrified.
