Female Intimate Surgery
What is female intimate surgery?
Female intimate surgery includes reconstructive and aesthetic procedures for the perineum. Formerly, intimate surgery was not openly requested. However, today, intimate surgery is frequently requested by women of all ages: young women wishing to enhance their sexuality, or older women wanting to find and enjoy their sexuality.
Questions are common and it’s important to consult and speak about the complexities of the anatomy and how the sex aesthetics are absolutely normal and acceptable. A consultation can simply help to reassure you, and does not necessarily lead to a surgery.
Intimate surgery is designed to beautify the appearance of the sex around the area of the small lips, the outer lips, or the pubic area. The purpose of intimate surgery is to give a tonic, refreshed and harmonious appearance to the entire perineal region. The most common procedure for women are reduction of labia minora (nymphoplasty) and vulvar lipofilling.
Reconstructive surgery of the perineum will repair the aesthetic and functional sequelae related to childbirth or sexual mutilation.
This delicate area requires special care adapted to each patient. Each and every intimate plastic surgery procedure must be performed in an operating room as day-care surgery. It can be carried out under local or general anesthesia, depending on the patients’ wishes. Hospitalization is ambulatory. The patient enters in the morning and leaves the hospital the same day.
Aesthetic Intimate Surgery
Intimate aesthetic surgery concerns any surgery of the perineum performed for aesthetic purposes.
With the wide availability of information on the internet and the media development of erotism, requests for aesthetic intimate surgery are rising sharply. Patients often wonder about the normality of their sex in the face of certain stereotypes presented as new standards.
Reconstructive Intimate Surgery
Reconstructive intimate surgery concerns women seeking reconstruction following perineal trauma (childbirth, sexual mutilation…). This reconstructive surgery is therefore generally covered by the French National Health Service but it must be noted that the sum reimbursed is generally ridiculously low.
Reconstructive surgery is very little known and its coverage is considerably underestimated by the National Insurance.
