Adolescent girls worry about fitting in and feeling confident in their bodies. Cosmetic surgeries like rhinoplasty have long been a favorite of teen girls who want to enhance their appearance and feel more at ease with their looks. Recently, teenagers have started seeking plastic surgery for more intimate body areas. Labiaplasty, the trimming and shaping of the labia, has seen a marked increase in demand from teenage girls.
The procedure has been requested so often that the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists issued guidance to doctors earlier this year from its Committee on Adolescent Health Care about educating patients who are seeking genital surgery. Generally, labiaplasty is requested by older women who have given birth or who suffer discomfort from enlarged labia. Labiaplasty can help these patients feel more comfortable in clothing, such as tight yoga pants, and increase sexual satisfaction along with providing a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance.
Younger women who are interested in the procedure should discuss their options with their plastic surgeon and educated themselves on the variety of shapes and sizes that are considered normal for female anatomy.
