Research commissioned by the UK’s leading cosmetic treatment review website reveals that a large percentage of women shy away from having a sex life due to the appearance of their vagina and subsequently, a fifth, 22%, of women would consider undergoing ‘designer vagina’ surgery. Due to an increase in onsite ‘designer surgery’ searches, the UK’s leading online cosmetic treatment review website conducted research of 1,331 women across the UK to discover what extremes women would go to for a ‘designer body.’
The research commissioned by www.goodsurgeonguide.co.uk shows that 1 in 5, 22%, of women would like to undergo surgery on their vagina, whilst 14% would like to have buttock implants. When asked the multiple choice question ‘Why would you like this procedure done?’ of the women that would like a cosmetic procedure on their vagina, 18% admitted it was because of their ‘confidence’ and 14% said it was to ‘improve their sex life’. 19% admitted to having not had a sex life due to the appearance if their vagina. A third of women that have given birth, 34%, would consider undergoing a labioplasty, compared to the average of 22%. 26% of people said they had or would prefer a caesarean childbirth, in order to maintain the appearance of their vagina. 27% of women claim that TV programmes focusing on Cosmetic Surgery/ ‘pressure’ them into considering a ‘designer’ appearance.
The research shows that of the 14% of women that would undergo buttock implants, three quarters admit to wanting the procedure conducted so they can achieve the ‘celebrity figure.’ The study shows that younger women are more likely to undergo a cosmetic procedure on their vagina, with 26% of women aged between 21 and 30 saying they would have a cosmetic procedure on their vagina, compared to 18% of women over 40.
Commenting on the study, Christiana Clogg, founder of The Good Surgeon Guide has said, “If a person is unhappy with their appearance than it really can be a hindrance with regards to their self-confidence. Considering undergoing a cosmetic treatment is a personal decision, and time should be spent over considering the options, implications and the way you’ll feel afterwards.” She continues, “The fact that more young women are interested in undergoing so-called designer vagina surgery when compared to over 40 year olds is particularly interesting, and potentially due to the fact that this generation seems to be much more accepting of Cosmetic Surgery/ as a whole.”
