Designer Vagina Surgery on the Rise
The U.K.’s National Health Service in 2004 and 2005 paid for elective surgery on 800 women who had the size of their labia reduced. That’s more than double the number of procedures funded by the government six years earlier, the commentary said.
Women primarily want the operations, known as genitoplasty, to acquire so-called “designer vaginas,” the journal report says, though some patients cited lifestyle reasons, such as an inability to wear tight clothing, ride a bicycle comfortably, or participate in certain sexual practices.
“I’ve been doing this over 13 years, and it has become much more popular,” said Robert Rho, a plastic surgeon at the Labiaplasty Master Surgery Center of New York, in a telephone interview today. “We’re doing more cases in recent years. There’s been more exposure in the media, so people are more aware of the surgery.
A common reason for “designer vagina surgery” is discomfort while exercising, but truth be told, the majority of women are undergoing this procedure in order to make their vagina appear more like the digitally enhanced photographs they see in pornography.
While we can’t vouch for it personally, the Unicorn Booty staff wants you to know that your vagina is beautiful. Snipping it into shape is hardly necessary. Your vagina was born this way. Chillax.
Besides, women who undergo vaginal cosmetic surgery risk loss of sensation, scarring, infection, and bleeding. Plus, the procedure will set you back $6,500.
