Hey  Dr. Chaves,

What exactly is vaginal surgery? One of my wife’s friends e-mailed her and said that she was thinking about doing that because she had a couple of kids. The thing is, my wife’s friend isn’t sick or anything. What’s the point of vaginal surgery?

I love vagina questions. But this question’s about changing one. Why (they’re all so pretty)? If your wife’s friend isn’t sick and she’s recently had kids, she might be getting what is called vaginoplasty (tightening the vagina and surrounding structures) and/or a labiaplasty (altering the appearance of the labias or vaginal lips).

Most of these surgeries are for cosmetic or personal reasons, but medical issues can be reasons as well. There’s a lot of pressure and expectation put on females by our society to look a certain way and that includes genitals (hence, the consideration of vaginal surgery). Have you ever seen an “imperfect“ vulva in Porn, Playboy or Hustler? Of course not; surgery, computers and Photoshop make sure of that. But it’s unrealistic and unnatural. Vulvas were made to be different, just like people.

My guess is that your wife’s friend feels uncomfortable about her privates and wants to surgically alter her appearance. Some say it’s no different than plastic surgery, breast implants or liposuction. Not a big deal. Others say its unethical and a response to social pressures — a big deal.

One thing I wonder is how does this affect the sex? There’s little reliable research that tests the sensation changes before and after vaginal surgeries. Realistically, tissue and nerves are removed or altered, which in theory would affect sensation, right? What about the possible psychological impacts a female may experience with altered genitalia? Could that affect her desire, arousal and sensation in a good way? Um, would someone please research this? I’m a realist. I expect a vulva to be different from the last one I encountered. I expect a vagina to never look like another.
