Ladies! No !! Please !!! Labiaplasty on girls as young as 9

Just this week, BBC TV’s Victoria Derbyshire Show has been discussing labiaplasty (surgical alteration of the labia majora/labia minora ) stating that girls as young as NINE are requesting cosmetic surgery to alter their vulva!!

What on earth is going on? It’s illegal to alter the genitals of a minor in the UK and most other countries around the world for no definitive recognised medical reason. It’s FGM – Female Genital Mutilation. What mother in her right mind would encourage her daughter to seek this out. What child of NINE would know enough to know that surgery was even possible? What is that child being exposed to?

What is that child being exposed to? 

Why is that mother not explaining to her that her body is changing and will continue to change for the rest of her life? Her labia today will be ancient history compared with her labia at 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, plus. She’s being exposed to information and presumably illustrations – be those drawn or photographic – of something way beyond her absolute comprehension at that age.

“Vagina surgery ‘sought by girls as young as nine’ “

We have a growing normal, healthy, Vulva Gallery on this site, to help women of all ages see that they are as normal as the next woman and that Vulvas (commonly mistakenly called the Vagina) comes in a vast range of shapes, sizes, colours, and are just the same for women worrying about themselves as our Willy Gallery helps men, who are equally concerned about the normality or otherwise of their genitals. We all worry from time to time, when we don’t know what’s normal – but if a girl of NINE is worrying and being led to believe that she’s not normal, then there are some big problems occurring and stacking up for the future for that young child as she grows into a young lady and a woman.
