Years ago, nobody was admitting to having plastic surgery, let alone cosmetic treatments on private parts. But just as plastic surgery has become less taboo in our society, genital cosmetic surgery is also becoming more and more accepted. Although society is beginning to embrace plastic surgery of all types, including vagina reconstruction and rejuvenation, the subject still isn’t openly discussed.
Vaginoplasty is a well-known and commonly performed surgical procedure, yet it is still a subject most people know very little about. As the name implies, vaginoplasty is a form of vagina reconstruction or rejuvenation. It aims to tighten and tone any sagging skin around the vagina. It is commonly combined with labiaplasty for an even more complete vagina reconstruction. Labiaplasty is a totally different technique used to reshape the vaginal lips. Both of these procedures are performed both for aesthetic and practical reasons. Along with a number of other treatments aimed at getting your pre-baby body back, vaginoplasty and labiaplasty are both considered a mommy makeover procedure.
Why are “vagina reconstruction” and”mommy makeover” treatments still a no-no in conversation?
Mommy makeovers and vaginal rejuvenation surgeries are growing in popularity with each passing year, but for some reason they remain very taboo in conversation. Perhaps this is because they involve parts of the body that women are too self-conscious about to bring up. So while more women are going under the knife, they are staying hush-hush about their procedures. Maybe it’s because of the criticism vaginal reconstruction has met. In the past, surgeons have claimed the procedures are unnecessary and thus potentially unsafe. But these criticisms have been rebutted by numerous reputable surgeons with proof that the associated risks are minor and can be easily tackled. For whatever reason, I hope that women start to speak out about their positive experiences with mommy makeovers and that more women feel confident in their own choice to have such procedures performed on them.
