According to a recent survey (*Sharp, G., Mattiske, J., Tiggeman, M. Sep 11, 2014) performed at Flinders University in Australia, it was found that one in five women would opt for the ‘designer vagina’ which usually refers to labiaplasty
The designer vagina has become a popular treatment, although you may not hear about it from your friends or from the news. Labiaplasty is a procedure that can resize and reshape the labia which can improve the appearance, reduce discomfort and self-consciousness and increase personal confidence for many patients.
People talk and think about genital appearance more than you know
According to this study, it was found that 13% of women had received negative comments about the appearance of their labia from romantic partners in the past.
Due to the immodesty of the media nowadays you may not even know you’re being exposed to such things as genital appearance. According to this study people who were more likely to be exposed to media such as television, advertising and online media (including pornography) were also more likely to be dissatisfied with the look of their vagina.
This can also lead to women feeling ‘abnormal’ about their appearance. Well, Dr Anh is here to tell you that there is no ‘normal’ as every female is different. What makes a difference is whether or not you feel uncomfortable about your appearance and whether or not your labia cause you any physical discomfort which can happen to some patients. In this instance, you can book a private and confidential meeting with Dr Anh at her Perth plastic surgery where she will sensitively discuss with you your concerns in a completely gentle and comfortable environment.

Labiaplasty is not the only option for a vaginal makeover
As women get older they can suffer from a condition called ‘vaginal atrophy’ which can result in the muscles and elastin weakening in the vagina – making it feel ‘looser’ than it used to be. This can also occur due to natural childbirth and is a completely normal condition.
You can receive treatment for this, and the great news is that it does not require surgery to tighten your vagina. MonaLisa Touch is a revolutionary laser system used to tighten the walls of the vagina by stimulating biosynthesis (collagen and tissue regeneration).
Take a look at this to see an example of the laser vaginal tightening procedure:
As you can see the procedure should be relatively quick with very little downtime. Dr Anh will discuss all of the expectations post-procedure during your initial private consultation at her Perth cosmetic clinic and wellness centre.
