More and more gynecologists are speaking out against expensive and increasingly uiquitous "designer vagina" surgeries that they say are unnecessary and unsafe. Most of the surgeries in question are meant to improve the appearance of a vagina whose owner feels looks a little droopy after childbirth or has unpleasantly large labia. The problem here is that most of these surgeries are performed in the private sector, and there hasn't been much published medical research showing they're safe. While surveys of women who have undergone the procedures generally find they're happy with the results, there still isn't a clinical standard in place for performing them.
