Résumé

La chirurgie sexuelle garde une réputation sulfureuse, hésitant souvent entre chirurgie fonctionnelle et simple chirurgie esthétique. Les demandes sont néanmoins croissantes et les techniques proposées nombreuses. Si certaines sont validées et semblent légitimes et efficaces chez des femmes gênées et honnêtement sélectionnées (nymphoplastie, correction d’une béance vulvaire, réfection d’hymen), d’autres sont beaucoup plus contestables, ne reposant sur aucun fondement scientifique et abusant trop souvent de la fragilité de certaines femmes ou exploitant une «fausse image» de normalité esthétique (rajeunissement vaginal, ampliation du point G). Quel que soit le type de prise en charge proposée, il est, de toute façon, essentiel de prendre en compte la dimension psychologique.

Abstract

Female sexual surgery still has a questionable reputation, hesitating between aesthetic and reconstructive surgery. Nevertheless, requests are increasing and there are many procedures available. Some of them are valid and have been shown to be effective in selected women with bothersome symptoms (labioplasty, colpoperineoplasty, hymenoplasty). Others are debatable, with no scientific assessment, and take advantage of some women’s fragility or exploit the “false picture” of aesthetically “normal” female genitalia (vaginal rejuvenation, G spot amplification). Whatever management is offered, it is important to take into consideration the psychological aspects.
