A recent labiaplasty patient of mine sent along an article from Elite Daily, describing the soaring popularity of labiaplasty (surgery to reconstruct and improve the appearance of the female private parts).
Particularly among women who exercise, labiaplasty has surged in popularity. In my own practice, reasons for desiring surgical alteration of the labia include:
- looking better in a swimsuit, yoga pants, or nude
- feeling more comfortable while exercising or running
- having a more pleasurable experience during sexual relations or sexual intercourse
- feeling more confident and happy about one's appearance
According to Elite Daily,
Some women as young as 16 and as old as 75 are making majora life decisions when it comes to the aesthetics of their nether regions.
Plastic surgeons reportedly say the number of patients seeking cosmetic vagina surgery is on the rise thanks to more women trying to look better in yoga pants and swimsuits.
According to Daily Mail, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery reports doctors performed 49 percent more vagina reconstructions — or labiaplasties if you want to get science-y about it — in 2014 than they did in 2013.
Labiaplasty has one of the highest patient satisfaction rates among all of the surgeries I perform. Scars are hidden and nearly invisible, surgery takes less than an hour, and most women take only 1 or 2 days off of work. If you are interested in discussing labiaplasty (correction of the labia minora, labia majora, clitoral hood, perineum, or mons pubis) with me, please call my office to set up a consultation.
