Can you believe that According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the number of patients undergoing labiaplasty, or surgery to trim the lips of the vagina, rose 49 percent from this year to last year. Which begs the question, when is it okay to consider vaginal rejuvenation? Is it time to tidy up your downstairs?

Board-certified South Florida plastic surgeon, Dr. Paul Wigoda, MD’s labiaplasty and vaginal rejuvenation plastic surgery procedures, are quickly becoming a popular subject of controversy among women and plastic surgeons. Women in today’s society are under constant pressure to conform and mold to societal expectations for how their bodies are suppose to look and respond. With this increased pressure as well as advances in medical technology, it’s no wonder procedures like these are becoming increasingly more popular.

5 Health Reasons for Rejuvenating The Vajayjay

While some argue procedures such as labiaplasty and vaginal tightening are simply plastic surgery procedures, plastic surgeons argue that they can also be used to treat a wide range of medical conditions such as sexual dysfunction and damage to the vaginal canal from pregnancy. Some other common health reasons for fixing up your vajingle (we are rapidly running out of names for vagina, hang in there) are:

  1. Bowel or urinary tract issues
  2. Trouble keeping in tampons
  3. Internal and external stretching causing pain
  4. Decreased sensation of friction
  5. Incontinence

Make sure you speak to your plastic surgeon if you have any of these issues, and see if labiaplasty or vaginoplasty can either lessen your pain or get rid of it altogether!  Surgeries such as this, according to Dr. Wigoda, are often “safe, effective, and relatively quick.”

Another important thing to remember if you have any of these issues is that they are not uncommon, and many women of all different shapes and sizes go through the exact same thing! There is no need to be embarrassed or ashamed girl, trust me, I’m more embarrassed writing this than you are reading it!

Is Purely Plastic Surgery Right or Wrong?

Now this is the area where the debate gets tricky, is vaginal rejuvenation for cosmetic purposes okay? Is it okay to glam up your kitty cat just because you want to look fabulous?  With society constantly injecting this idea of what is “normal” is it okay to get a plastic surgery procedure just to improve the aesthetics of your vagina? After all, breast augmentation such as Dr. Wigoda’s painless breast implants, can be a purely aesthetic surgery that is continuing to gain popularity among women today!

Dr. Wigoda and many other surgeons say “YES!” As long as it is your choice and you firmly believe vaginal rejuvenation or vaginal tightening can increase your happiness, confidence, or even sexual gratification, that is a completely valid option. Remember you are in control of your own self-image! Find a plastic surgeon that is dedicated to making you feel the most comfortable and confident version of yourself!

Plastic surgeons such as Dr. Wigoda encourage you to speak with an experienced plastic surgeon, read reviews, and ask questions to assure which plastic surgery procedure is the best fit for you.

Labiaplasty and Butt Lifts On the Rise in 2014

There is an upward trend in both labiaplasty and buttock augmentation surgeries underlined by recent findings by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

buttock augmentation

Last year’s statistics reported that cosmetic procedures were up five percent from the previous year, the most popular procedures including breast implants and various facial procedures. This year, the trend continues and cosmetic procedures are on the rise however, the procedures seeing the most growth include two that fall below the belt.


Labiaplasty procedures saw an increase of 44 percent over the past year and buttock augmentation procedures increased by 58 percent. While these cosmetic procedures only represent a small portion of plastic surgery overall, their growth demonstrates a definitive trend.


Butt Lifts and Vagina Plastic Surgery: Why Go Below?

Candidates for labiaplasty include women who experience elongated labial tissue due to recent pregnancy, weight loss, menopause, hereditary conditions, the natural aging process, or other factors. This very common condition among women can result in discomfort, pain or self-consciousness and can be effectively reconstructed without harming surrounding tissues or affecting sexual sensation. Labiaplasty can result in one feeling more comfortable while wearing certain types of clothing, simply walking, exercising and engaging in sexual intimacy.


While some opt for labiaplasty to increase comfort, the procedure can also be performed to increase positive body image. Today’s grooming trends revolve around a silky smooth look. Underarms, legs, bikini lines and even full pubic hair elimination are achievable through laser hair removal. As a result of this popular style, women are paying more attention to the appearance of the lower region and wish to enhance their image.


Bums are Back!

Buttock augmentation has also gained a lot of interest and is seeing growth which is believed to continue. From the moment Pippa Middleton stepped onto the red carpet at the Royal Wedding, bums were back in. Her made-by-Zumba figure inspired a Facebook page, a lift in padded underwear sales and even a plastic surgery named after her!


The desire for buttock augmentation can be attributed to curvaceous celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Eva Mendes and Scarlett Johansson, who are inspiring people to go for the va-va-voom bombshell look rather than solely believe that thin is in. The procedure consists of fat grafting, or taking fat from unwanted areas, and transferring it to the posterior allowing for the surgeon to shape and mold the buttock.


This procedure has also been considered medically beneficial. Both males and females with desk jobs can encounter discomfort after sitting for extended periods of time. The additional padding and reshaping of the buttock allows people to sit comfortably and may help them maintain better posture and can reduce back pain.


When considering plastic surgery, it is paramount to seek out the services of a board-certified doctor versus someone whom you discovered online. If you are interested in buttock augmentation or other plastic surgery procedures, come in for a free consultation from board certified Dr. Paul Wigoda.
