Have you ever wondered if you should beautify your nether region? If so, you’re not alone.
According to the president of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Debra Johnson, “People used to not really see their parts down there, but nowadays with so many women waxing and shaving, they are just much more aware of what they look like, and so sometimes they feel self-conscious.”
This self-consciousness doesn’t only come from taking a closer look at the vagina, but become of technological advances. The Internet is also partly to blame for the increase in labiaplasty procedures.
Women are not only looking at other women and wondering if theirs looks normal, but women are also reading about how they can surgically change the appearance of the vagina. Sites like RealSelf.com and on social media networks like Instagram, women are seeing others who have had the procedure and they like the results. They also see how happy others are after having it done.
The Problem with the Search for the Perfect Labia
There are no perfect labia. Every single person is different, and there really isn’t one standard shape or size that is deemed “perfect.” Some women are self-conscious because they believe their vaginal lips are too big or too small, but really, unless they are getting in the way of sexual satisfaction or daily activities, they don’t need to be messed with.
A labiaplasty should only be sought for the right reasons. This means getting it because YOU believe you will feel more confident in the bedroom because of it. You will enjoy the way you look and feel, not because someone else will enjoy how you look. Many women seek plastic surgery because a partner pushes them to do it, and usually, that ends up causing the patient to be unsatisfied with the results.
It’s best to seek a cosmetic enhancement on your own accord. Do your research and speak to a plastic surgeon. It’s the best way to decide if your desired procedure would be beneficial for you.
