A recent article in Plastic Surgery Practice titled Physicians Alarmed Over Labiaplasty Demand caught our attention. The article discusses a trend in younger women having Labiaplasty, a procedure that Dr. Deal performs at Southern Surgical Arts. At our practice, we see a different age group of patients who desire the procedure. “The patients we see that desire this procedure are primarily women who have had children and desire, just like any other cosmetic procedure, to look the way they did when they were younger,” Dr. Deal said. “This is often a procedure women are embarrassed to discuss — much like Breast Augmentation was decades ago,” he said.
Vaginal Rejuvenation as a whole is gaining popularity in the United States. Many women are adding it to the “Mommy Makeover” for optimal restoration of their bodies. The Vaginal Rejuvenation procedures includes vaginal tightening and labiaplasty to the minora and majora to improve function and appearance. “When I trained in Las Vegas, it was common for women to have vaginal procedures. In the South, we are more private about these concerns but it is still gaining momentum because they see the benefits,” Dr. Deal said.
