What is cosmetic gynecology?
Gynecology, in recent years has been broadly classified into two branches:
- Functional Gynecology/Gynaecology
- Cosmetic Gynecology/Gynaecology
Functional gynecology is related to the treatment procedures that correct the functionality of reproductive organs in women whereas cosmetic gynecology includes procedures that mainly deal with the aesthetics (appearance) of the vagina, vulva, labia majora, labia minora, clitoral hood etc.
As women age and with (multiple) child births, the muscles in the pelvis region as well as the tissues around the vagina loosen up changing the appearance of the vagina. This has become a cause of concern for more women these days as they are more concerned about the appearance of their private organs and what their partner feels/thinks about them. A drooping vagina or a darkened vagina may dent the confidence of a woman to go totally nude during her moments. This can take show up as stress in her everyday life ruining the quality of her life and may be her relationship. Here is where cosmetic gynecology comes to the rescue.
