Again there is a news report (this time in MSN’s “News of the Wierd”) mentioning genital surgery. As usual the discussion centers upon the unusual at least relative to my practice. To be fair, the article is entitled “News of the Wierd.”
My own experience relates to outer vaginal lip reductions and not “tightening.” I am a plastic surgeon, not a gynecologist. I have yet, however to have a single patient indicate to me that her reason for having the surgery related to a partner. The ladies have all desired that their Labiae be reduced for their own reasons usually embarrassment and/or discomfort in tight clothing. Similarly, not a single patient has indicated that she wished her genitals to look like those of a porn star.
So the article is somewhat misleading relative to the routine case. I guess this makes for better reading.
