when i was looking around for doctors (dermatologists and then surgeons) i came across ads (yes DOCTOR ADS) for trimming down women's genitals. i knew about it because porn stars have talked about trimming down their labia. so it wasn't shocking to me. well it IS shocking to me in that someone is SO INSECURE they resort to trimming down their vaginal lips (and more). i wasn't prepared for the plethora of ads i came across though. any doctor that advertised something of that nature was out of the question. i wouldn't see one. i think they should have their licenses yanked as a matter of fact. (i could understand if someone was maimed and/or hurt and needed GENITAL RECONSTRUCTIVE surgery. of course i also understand trans surgery as well. I AM TALKING ABOUT COSMETIC GENITAL SLICING AND DICING HERE.)
women, you ARE perfect as you are. we're not all the same size. our bodies OR our genital make-up
be secure. EVEN IF YOU'RE A PORN STAR YOU DO NOT HAVE TO HAVE YOUR GENITALS WHACKED OFF (so to speak)
The 'Perfect' Porn Vulva: More Women Demanding Cosmetic Genital Surgery
By Rebecca Chalker, AlterNet.
Type "labiaplasty," "vaginoplasty" or any of nearly a dozen female genital cosmetic surgeries into any search engine, and a flurry of doctors' Web sites will pop up touting the self-esteem, sexual enhancement, comfort and fashion benefits of female genital cosmetic surgery.
These sites, typically decorated with airbrushed pictures of lovely women in various states of undress or even nude, are replete with before-and-after photos of trimmed-down labia and gushing quotes from satisfied customers.
Many of these sites promise ecstasy, plus: "Laser vaginal reconstruction can accomplish what ever [sic] you desire."
Some patients seem happy with the results.
Dig a little deeper though, and you find stories tinged with grief and regret about genital "enhancement" surgeries gone wrong...................
