Is Elective Vulvar Plastic Surgery Ever Warranted, and What Screening Should Be Conducted Preoperatively?
Conclusion. Vulvar plastic surgery may be warranted only after counseling if it is still the patient’s preference, provided that it is conducted in a safe manner and not solely for the purpose of performing surgery. Read entire article...

Designer Vaginas

(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. Taking the surgical route has not only boosted sexual pleasure, it has prevented further genital discomfort. Here's what you can expect when having the nip.


The two most commonly performed procedures are the labiaplasty, where the labia or "lips" of the genitals 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.

As people come in all shapes and sizes, so do the female sexual organs. The vulva is the outside part of a woman's genitals, which includes the urethra and the vagina. Over these two openings lie two folds of tissue. The fleshy outer folds are called the labia majora and the more delicate inner folds are called the labia minora. The outer labia are usually larger, but with many women the inner lips protrude. Not only do some women find this looks unattractive, but it can cause pain and irritation as the sensitive skin rubs on clothing.

Labiaplasty trims the protruding flesh of the inner lips, giving the vagina a "neater" appearance.

Dr. Bernard Stern is an obstetrician and gynecologist, and an expert (at) female genital cosmetic surgery. He has performed vaginal surgery for 34 years, and genital cosmetic surgery for five years.

His Florida practice is booming. Last year business nearly quadrupled from the year before—helped along by a number of UK women who flew across the Atlantic for his specialist care. This year the numbers look set to increase by another 50%. At the moment Dr. Stern carries out three or four surgeries every day. And that's without even advertising, Dr. Stern says.

" My only marketing is on the Internet," he explains."Women who are bothered by their genitals, either emotionally or physically, find me."

His workload is pretty evenly divided between labiaplasty and vaginoplasty procedures. One in three patients opt for both at the same time.

Surprisingly, the operations are fairly simple procedures. Most take about an hour, some are even performed under a local anesthetic, and most women are back to their regular routine within a week. Sex, however, is off the cards for at least six weeks.

The Most Private of Makeovers
Published: November 28, 2004

THE 39-year-old yoga instructor was like a lot of women these days: she was unhappy with her body and thought that a little sculpturing by a plastic surgeon would help. But her goal was not the usual smoothing out of facial wrinkles or expanding her bust.

Instead she wanted to achieve her beauty ideal in the most private part of her anatomy — her genitals.
"I was very, very self-conscious about the way I looked," said the woman, who lives in Boston and spoke on the condition that her name not be used, to protect her privacy. "Now I feel free. I just feel normal."

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. They are tightening vaginal muscles, plumping up or shortening labia, liposuctioning the pubic area and even restoring the hymen, sometimes despite their doctors' skepticism about the need for such cosmetic measures.

More Women Seek Vaginal Plastic Surgery
Run Date: 11/14/04
By Sandy Kobrin, WeNews correspondent

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.
"I looked in like, those magazines, and saw that inner labia shouldn't stick out like mine did," said Crystal, who requested her last name be withheld. "So I had a labiaplasty and now I love the way I look; nice and neat and new. My vagina looks perfect.

In a labiaplasty, the surgical reshaping of female external genital structures, larger or uneven inner vaginal lips are cut and shortened.

Dr. V. Leroy Young, chair of the emerging trends task force of the Arlington Heights, IL., American Society of Plastic Surgeons, believes labiaplasty and vaginal cosmetic surgery are the fastest growing emerging growth trend in cosmetic plastic surgery. Read entire article...
