"This increase in the demand for intimate surgery may respond to several reasons," says the specialist in Plastic, Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery.
The first and most important is the fashion of comprehensive hair removal, which reveals the entire anatomy. This makes the labia minora more visible and leads women to want to reduce them.
Second, the fact that society is less conservative every time, and they can already ask openly about their genitals without any shame or embarrassment.
And finally, the easy access to pornography on the Internet, where the genitals are completely shaved and with small labia minora, causes these women to serve as models for a certain audience, adds the expert.

"The most common complications are, as in all surgeries, infection or bleeding, but we take the necessary measures to minimize them," says Dcotor.
In Doctors words, “the profile is women between 20 and 50 years old”. However, there is a very wide age range, ranging from young women to postmenopausal women and explains that "not only in the reproductive stage, but also in menopause, there is much more demand for vulvovaginal aesthetic treatments".
According to the specialist, “although the reasons for intimate surgeries are usually simply cosmetic , there may also be a more medical or restorative reason, as in the case of labiaplasties of significant hypertrophy of the labia minora due to discomfort during sexual intercourse , during sports or when wearing tight clothing.
Specifically, the surgeon quotes, postpartum is a fundamental stage in vaginal cosmetics. In addition, these interventions are indicated "for premenopausal dermatological diseases (lichen and lesions with dry mucosa) and vulvar or vaginal malformations (when there is great asymmetry of the lips).
Of course, "before any cosmetic surgery you have to be in an optimal state of health , without any active disease", recalls the Doctor.
Doctor concludes that "it is not necessary to meet any requirement beyond the preoperative protocols of other surgeries, because they are interventions with low morbidity, with rapid recovery, and most without hospital admission."
Regarding the psychological aspect, Doctor specifies, a test is not necessary, but the plastic surgeon will normally be in charge of distinguishing between surgeries for a relatively objective problem or a possible improvement within not running risks to health. "In the event that the patient presents dysmorphophobia, it would be necessary to refer her to a consultation with the specialist and, of course, not perform the surgery.
