Fancy a ‘designer vagina’?

It would seem that many women do as a growing number of young women are seeking vaginal rejuvenation according to experts and doctors are reporting that children as young as 11 are seeking surgery!

The hour-long procedure which was originally popular with patients suffering from incontinence or a sagging of the vaginal canal following childbirth is now more widely used for cosmetic purposes to either to enhance the appearance of the genitalia or boost sexual satisfaction.

While the average age of those requesting the surgery is between 30-45, some doctors are concerned the trend is causing teenagers to become increasingly ‘misled or confused’ about what is normal.

Critics believe it is yet another service aimed at women pursuing an impossible ideal of physical perfection, and surgeons say the majority of patients have been influenced by internet pornography and the media industry.

So what is Vaginal Rejuvenation?
There are two main types of procedure available:

Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation
• For women who want to enhance or improve sexual gratification
• Most patients are women who have had children and experience vaginal relaxation
• The procedure enhances vaginal muscle tone, strength, and control
• Effectively decreases the internal and external vaginal diameters
• Builds up and strengthens the perineal body
Designer Laser Vaginoplasty
• Aesthetic laser enhancement for women who are concerned with the appearance of their ‘bits’
• Sculpts and reduces the inner and outer labia
• Reduces excess skin
• Reduces thickness of the labia minora
• Pigmentation treatment to create uniform colouration
• Rejuvenates the relaxed parts of the vagina
• Augment any areas that are ‘flat’ with transfer of fat from other areas
• Removes fatty bulges of pubic area

In 2011 more than 2,140 U.S. women underwent vaginal rejuvenation, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery while the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons put the total at almost 5,200 in 2010. Experts note such figures do not include the many procedures done by gynaecologists.

And last year, according to NHS figures the demand for genital cosmetic surgery in the UK rose five-fold over the course of a decade.

Taking away the costs of potentially unnecessary surgery, doctors have warned that many surgeons are failing to explain risks – such as infections, scarring, pain and the loss of the very sensations some patients seek to enhance. However many patients are more than happy to proceed with surgery, even when warned of the dangers, as they are sold on the idea of having a ‘designer vagina’.

The ladies in our Real Women Today office did vote the ‘designer vagina’ way down on their lists of lottery win purchases, what do you think?
