Today we'll discuss all things 'vaginal surgery' and the affect it can have on women's lives.
There has been a lot of talk in the press lately about vaginal surgery. In particular, its link to Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) and with the UK’s Crown Prosecution Service considering banning the procedure under the 1985 laws which prohibit FGM. Our very own Head Surgeon Amir Nakhdjevani stood against the ban explaining that Labiaplasty is only performed on women for medical reasons.
If the procedure was banned in the UK, women may become desperate and have the procedure carried out illegally by an unqualified doctor or choose to go abroad and risk possible complications occurring on their return.
A fully qualified and ethical surgeon will be able to differentiate between a woman who is requesting the procedure for FGM over one that is genuinely affected in her everyday life with the discomfort and embarrassment she is suffering from.
So why have we seen the number of women opting for Labiaplasty procedures treble in the last 10 years? Some may argue that women are feeling the pressure to look what is considered 'perfect' in every aspect of their bodies including their vagina, but in the clinic that has not been our experience.
The women that have sought out the procedure with us have done so due to the discomfort they suffer in their everyday activities in life. Activities that we take for granted like bike riding and running can be incredibly uncomfortable and even painful for a woman with enlarged labia. Just wearing tight clothing can cause discomfort. It can also affect their confidence when it comes to being intimate with a partner and may even cause pain during intercourse.
Woman who have had the Labiaplasty procedure with Bella Vou have reported to us how their lives have been changed since having the procedure. Not only are they no longer suffering from discomfort, but the things we often take for granted, such as wearing a bikini in public no longer causes them embarrassment.
