Hymenoplasty, Vaginoplasty, and Perineoplasty in Aesthetic and Regenerative Gynecology

  • 368 Accesses

Abstract

It has been scientifically shown that the appearance of a woman’s genitalia affects her self-confidence and sexuality. Women now have been empowered with the choice to change the external appearance of their vulvovaginal region in case they are unhappy with its cosmetic appearance. Studies have shown that this is a trend driven by women themselves and not their sexual partners. Developments in both technology and fashion induce changes in the notion of beauty. The social and cultural difference among countries also play a highly significant role in this matter. Thus, one cannot give an exact description of the normal view of external genitalia. Female cosmetic genital surgeries address the aesthetic, functional, and sexual concerns of women. Aesthetic gynaecology has seen increasing patient and physician demand.
