Why Getting the Barbie Look Down Under is the New Frontier
The latest trend in plastic surgery isn’t as plain as the nose on your face, and if your neighbor gets hers done, you’re not likely to notice — let’s just say it’s personal.
We’re talking about your lady bits, as they say across the pond. Fans of Grey’s Anatomy know it as your va-jay-jay, it’s okay, say it with me, your vagina.
“The labia is no longer taboo,” said Dr. Laura Sudarsky. “We talk about labia and vaginas freely today. Our parents used to be embarrassed to say the word breast, now it is part of our vocabulary.”
Whatever you call it, if you’re self-conscious about the way yours looks, you’re not alone.
But just in case you were wondering, our very own Dr. Laura Sudarsky says, beauty, even down there, is in the eye of the beholder.
“There is no correct anatomy for the vagina,” said Dr. Sudarsky. “It’s not supposed to look like this or that. There is no defined esthetic vagina, it is solely up to a woman’s perception.”
Loose lips sink ships and apparently make us uncomfortable under the sheets.
According to the most recent statistics from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery more than 5,000 labiaplasty surgeries were performed making it the second fastest growing cosmetic procedure that year (2013) — just behind the behind.
“The vagina ages just like the rest of our bodies, just like your eyes, your face, your neck,” said Dr. Sudarsky. “Nobody cares about the facelift, today everyone is talking about vaginas.”
It’s no wonder our crotch conforming clothing once reserved for the gym like leggings and yoga pants have now become everyday street wear, and when it does come to underwear, g-strings and thongs have become the norm. It all started in the early 1990s with growing grooming techniques like the advent of the popular Brazilian wax and the bold, bald trend — going all Telly Savalas.
And now the g-string has landed on the beach. So, if you’re planning on rocking one of these new micro-bikinis this summer, well…
“Most women don’t want to have labial show, so they can have their labia minora reduced,” said Dr. Sudarsky. “Some women feel their labia majora are empty and droopy as they age, so we tighten them, or fill them with fat, or use skin tightening procedures.”
“The labia is the new breast, it droops, ages and gets plastic surgery,” said Dr. Sudarsky.
At Esse Plastic Surgery, you can feel free to drop your panties in a non-judgement zone and tell us just what look will make you happy.
“Women want to see a female plastic surgeon for labiaplasty and vaginal rejuvenation where they are not criticized for their requests and their privacy is respected,” said Dr. Stokes.
