Australian gynecologists blacklist designer vaginasJuly 31st, 2008 - 5:31 pm ICT by ANI
Melbourne, July 31 (ANI): Gynecologists Down Under have blacklisted cosmetic surgery to rejuvenate the vagina, saying that the dangerous procedures are injuring a large number of women.
Top female sexual health specialists say they are seeing an increase in women with scarring, infections and altered sexual sensations after undergoing vaginal surgery.
Most have had labioplasty operations, to change the external appearance of the vagina or, less commonly, to narrow the vagina or “amplify”” the female G-spot.
The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists has issued a position statement on the trend, labelling it dangerous, expensive and unwarranted.
“The college is particularly concerned that such surgery may exploit vulnerable women,”” Herald Sun quoted the statement, as stating.
Dr Ted Weaver, chairman of the college’’s women’’s health committee, said there were now a number of clinics, mostly in Sydney and the Gold Coast, offering these treatments.
Most of the operations cost at least 10,000Australian dollars, an “extraordinary amount of money””, Dr Weaver said.
“We feel these operations might prey on people with insecurities and fears who actually need psychological help,”” he said.
“They are also not very anatomically-based and have the potential to cause serious harm, he added. (ANI)
