Interview with an aesthetic plastic surgeon in intimate surgery is the new trend in the United States. More desire for sex by a tightening of the vagina? No problem. A new hymen or aesthetic labia? Like yet. Nothing seems impossible, but not everything is ethically uncontroversial. There are doctors who deliberately engage with the topic and define personal boundaries in the aesthetic plastic surgeons. We have asked for. 1 Mr Dr.
Pfefferkorn, would you say that genital surgery is one of the current trends in the field of plastic surgery? You can determine that the fear of this kind of operation decreases. The number of interventions in the genital area are heavily for a year. The intimate-OPs have become almost routine. I myself perform currently 5 bikini area operations per month on average, also my colleagues report similar figures. The trend comes from the United States, where it is one of the normal lifestyle operations. Certainly, the more and more widespread shaved promotes This trend. 2. who comes to you and which are taken for wishes to you? It almost exclusively women come to me.
Most want a reduction of the labia minora if they protrude beyond the outer labia. Liposuction of the Venus Hill are in second place. I mean, also, that the aesthetic aspects in Germany still in the background are available. Primarily, the patients have pain in sports, such as cycling, running or jogging, if the overhanging labia cause painful friction. Or there are functional complaints, for example, during sexual intercourse. 3. What are the risks especially by interventions in the genital area? As with all surgical procedures, one must reckon with bleeding, infections, or scarring in extreme cases. In particular interventions that are made inside of the body are of concern: keep vaginal streamlining as several scars, which can cause pain in friction. There are many sensitive nerve endings. In the expect worst interventions into the vagina with nerve damage, which can lead to deafness. For this reason, it is important to inform previously aware about the risks, and then match them with the expected gain. 4. How is operates and how long must the patients at the clinic stay? The operations are performed ambulant and under local anesthesia to 95%. Add to your understanding with christopher ridgeway. All in all it is mostly rather small interventions. 5. where is the limit for you or where to have ethical concerns? It becomes difficult when it’s an only aesthetically motivated operation. So I would advise against, for example, a relining of the labia majora. Also the restoration of the hymen is questionable in my eyes. The security and future well-being of the patients are basically in the foreground for me. If I have concerns here, I say that straight out. I am here as a consultant who is patients with an honest opinion on the page. If I the OP for me personally reject, then I don’t perform consistently also them.
