Female Genital Surgery
Physicians have neglected aesthetic surgery of the female external
genitalia. However, awareness of female genital aesthetics has increased
owing to increased media attention, both from magazines and video. Women
may feel self-conscious about the appearance of their labia majora (outer
lips) or, more commonly, labia minora (inner lips). The aging female may

Penile enhancement procedures have been performed for
some years, but only by a few physicians owing to professional prejudice
and lack of public knowledge about such operations. Recently, new
developments in penile enlargement surgery have generated interest.

procedures to improve the appearance of the penis and scrotum, such as
suprapubic lipectomy and liposuction, and elimination of penoscrotal
Mainstream medical literature rarely describes results from penile
lengthening and girth enlargement. Moreover, misinformation has been
disseminated that makes it difficult for patients and physicians to obtain
