• Vaginal Plastic Surgery at what Cost?

    According to the 2011 data of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the most popular procedures for women were breast augmentation, lipoplasty, abdominoplasty, breast lift and eyelid surgery. There’s really no denying that plastic and cosmetic surgery is gaining popularity each year and still, the majority of patients are women (although it has also become a popular choice for men).

    These procedures are done for different reasons—to boost self-esteem and confidence or to correct a broken nose or chin (reconstructive surgery). But, this year, a new surgery procedure is gaining popularity and is causing quite a stir in the medical community, ladies and gentlemen, introducing: vaginal reshaping.

    Yes, you read it right. There’s already a plastic surgery procedure which can fix a woman’s most intimate part. It may sound avant-garde but over the last years, thousands of women undergo vaginal plastic surgery, according to Reuters. The most common vaginal procedures that women chose are surgical tightening, labia reshaping and G-spot amplification using fillers.

    According to pervious patients, patients complain that they no longer feel stimulated during sex and feel that their genitalia is not as attractive as before that is why they resort to this surgery. But, a more shocking revelation is that, these women asked for a vaginal reshaping because their genitalia does not resemble as to what they’ve seen on television or on the Internet.

    Vaginal reshaping is not yet done in the Philippines but board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Edwin Paul V. Magallona says that “it will only be a matter of time before this hits the Philippine shores.”

    Other doctors from around the world are more wary of the procedure and say that it is yet proven to help simulation; more so, they add that it could cause some negative effects. The risks involved include scarring and loss of sensation. Although Dr. Magallona is still apprehensive about this procedure, he adds that only time will tell if it will be welcomed by Filipinos. But what he fears most is that, women might have unrealistic expectations of how they want their genitalia to look like.

    Dr. Magallona advices that it is important that any woman who is interested to have vaginal reshaping must visit a board-certified and qualified plastic surgeon in the Philippines before undergoing in any cosmetic procedure.

    The most important thing to consider here is that, the patient should know the risks and complications involved in this kind of procedure so that she will have a firm foundation if she wants to continue or not.
