Reuters, The Wall Street Journal, and Google News are among the many sources reporting on the controversy over 'vaginal rejuvenation.' Cosmetic Genital Surgeries include procedures such as changing the shape or size of the labia, "restoring" the hymen, and tightening the vagina.
For women who take medical advice from television shows such as Dr. 90210 on the E! network where these procedures have been featured, Dr. Thomas Stovall has some advice: “To do this for cosmetic reasons, and to say it will improve sexual fulfillment is totally absurd.”
Dr. Stovall is past president of the Society of Gynecologic Surgeons and a clinical professor at the University of Tennessee at Memphis.
If E! is your information bible and you'd like more information on this...er...uh...treatment(?), please contact Los Angeles gynecologist, Dr. David L. Matlock. Matlock, who claims to have over ten years of experience in performing designer vaginoplasty, states, “Many surgeons come to me to receive training on how I perform these procedures. Since I have developed a good amount of expertise over the past 12 years, I feel my techniques are the gold standard of care.”
