FEMALE GENITAL COSMETIC SURGERY DEFINITION 

Professor Dr. Adam Ostrzenski established the definition of female genital cosmetic-plastic surgery, and published it in the scientific-clinical peer review journal; “A female genital cosmetic surgery transforms or reshapes the natural anatomical look to the more pleasing aesthetic appearance without changing the function of the organ(s)”.

The female genital cosmetic surgery can be performed on healthy women who have realistic expectations, positive attitude, understand the risks of the procedure (including complications that might lead to sexual dysfunction and dissatisfaction), knowledge on the recovery time that may have an effect on personal, family, social, and professional life as well as physical effects.

Most often, cosmetic surgery is performed on the skin. The skin covers all female external genitalia; therefore, a cosmetic surgery can never be offered to be performed within the vagina, given that vagina is an “inside” organ (invisible) that is found within a woman’s body. Often time’s clinical meetings offer “a cosmetic vaginal surgery”; this message is not only misleading but also deceptive for the population-in-large. On the other hand, a plastic (reconstructive) vaginal surgery such as vaginal rejuvenation, g-spotplasty, or reconstruction of vaginal defects (for feeling sensation of the wide vagina) can be offered.

If a woman dislikes her natural look of her genitalia, a cosmetic surgery might improve her aesthetic appearance, and can make her feel better emotionally (particularly self-esteem, reduce anxiety or depression), socially, and physically.
