Labiaplasty is a type of plastic surgery. It starts to more popular for teenage girls in United States. This brings some question about teenage girls like what will they do when they grow up or if they need a plastic surgery, what will happen then?
One most well-known plastic surgeon Dr. Hazen says that there’s “a functional abnormality — something that interferes with normal activities, the labia is a normal part of the female anatomy. I recommend that teens should seek surgery when there is a functional impairment,” However of course teenage will not listen to Dr. Hazen unfortunately.
She added about the Labiaplasty “Otherwise, they should love their unique and individual qualities and not undergo an invasive surgery that may be appealing to a popular trend in ideal appearance that may change over time to a new ‘ideal.’”
I agree with a few writers who supports the plastic surgery for teenage. If she needs the medical treatment, she should undergo the surgery. However the younger ages like 12-18 are too early for having a medical operation because the medical operation brings some other health problems.
According the Vocative website There’s also been a 16 percent rise in labiaplasties across age groups: jumping from 7,535 in 2014 to 8,745 in 2015. Last year, under-18s made up 4.6 percent of all labiaplasties. It’s women between the ages of 19 and 34 who accounted for nearly 60 percent of those procedures.
Apparently it isn’t enough that 80% of 10-year-old girls in the US have been on a diet, or that the celebrity best known right now for having her lips plumped with artificial filler is a teenager. Now teenagers are worrying about their genitals being too fat or long or uneven. This information is taken from The Guardian. This shows us this is not only Labiaplasty problem but also vision problem I think. I hope so this will be stopped some how.
