Labiaplasty was once taboo, yet cosmetic gynecology is increasing in Australia and around the world. This cosmetic procedure endeavours to remove or reduce the size of the labia which are the inner or outer folds of skin that surround the vagina. According to a recent study by the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, Labiaplasty has quickly become one of the fastest growing cosmetic procedures in the world.
Research indicates that like a fingerprint, everyone’s genitalia are unique ranging in all shapes, sizes and colours. However, for some the discomfort of their vulva can range from its appearance to its functionality or even a combination of both. The discomfort and widespread discussion among women about Labiaplasty surgery has dramatically led to a rise in procedures from 444 surgeries conducted in 2000 to 1605 in 2013 under Medicare
The ABC reported that for some young women, their confidence can be crippled and they develop anxiety about being naked. Intimacy with a partner becomes challenging or even just wearing tight fitting clothes can be difficult, this can lead to long term self esteem issues including depression. Reshaping and resizing the labia folds are a simple and effective way of reducing the appearance and restoring confidence to many women.
