The Last Frontier: Labiaplasty
- Posted on: Nov 18 2011
There are plastic surgery procedures available for most parts of the human body, and now one of the last frontiers is up for consideration. A recent article discusses the rise of labiaplasty – reconstructive surgery for a woman’s labia.
When is Labiaplasty Justified?
Many surgeons, urologists, and gynecologists have weighed in on this procedure, and opinions are varied. Even those who do condone it, however, admit that it is certainly not for everyone, nor for all situations. Most agree that it is a tricky and potentially dangerous procedure, and that cosmetic considerations alone generally do not warrant carrying it out.
But in general, self-consciousness and issues with body image are very common reasons for women to undergo plastic surgery. Balancing the desire for happiness and self-esteem with considerations of safety are one of the major issues at stake in the industry. Where is the dividing line between teaching women to love their bodies as they are, and admitting that sometimes it takes a little extra help to make women feel as beautiful and confident as they can be?
