First it was breast implant surgery to have bigger boobs, and now we have this phenomenon of ‘designer vaginas’.
Has the world gone totally mad?
Cosmetic surgery should be banned. It is unnecessary (except in the case of a mastectomy or some injury) and as all surgeries presents a considerable risk of deformation or death.
More women want ‘designer vagina’
Doctors and women’s groups are concerned at the increasing number girls and women – some as young as 12 – requesting cosmetic genital surgery.
One Melbourne gynaecologist said the social pressure on women to be ”normal” started early, with school-aged girls often coming in with their mothers seeking help.
Dr Sonia Grover said young girls were concerned with looking different and often requested labiaplasties, a procedure to change the size and shape of the external coverings of the vagina. ”These requests come from lack of understanding of what is considered normal and this found across all ages groups of both men and women,” she said.
Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists vice president Ajay Rane said the trend was informed by a culture based on being physically perfect.
”The promotion of the ‘designer vagina’ and other genital myths often pressure the most vulnerable in our community to seek unnecessary surgery,” Professor Rane said.
”It is greatly concerning that more of these women are seeking to alter their genitals for purely cosmetic reasons.”
I have nothing further to say, apart from the fact I think this is absolutely stupid.
