Even though more men are becoming interested in cosmetic surgery recently, there’s no denying that women make up the largest percentage the industry’s clientele.
The common procedures that women elect to undergo include liposuction, tummy tucks, eyelid surgery, and breast augmentation. But according to Reuters, more and more women want to reshape another part of their body – their private parts.
Thousands of women undergo vaginal plastic surgery, or labiaplasty, every year. For some, it’s a matter of sensation.
“Women come to me and say they don’t have the urge to have sex anymore because they don’t feel anything,” an Atlanta-based plastic surgeon and gynaecologist told the news source. “I guarantee that if a man didn’t feel anything, he wouldn’t have sex either.”
For others, the issue is aesthetics. Patients want their nethers to resemble those they’ve seen on television or the Internet.
However, some critics argue that the risks outweigh the potential benefits, and that the procedures have not been proven to help regain the desired sensitivity, and can even reduce it if the procedure is performed improperly. Furthermore, these critics are concerned that women may harbor unrealistic expectations of what they “should” look like based representations in media.
If you’re interested in labiaplasty, but are uncertain if you’re a candidate for the procedure, be sure to contact a trusted, board certified plastic surgeon who can answer all your questions and help you decide if the procedure is right for you. But above all, make sure you’d be doing it for the right reasons. Labiaplasty can help you feel more comfortable, and can improve self-confidence, but it shouldn’t be entered into lightly just to conform to a preconceived notion of beauty
