Labiaplasty Trending: This Surgery Helps Women Feel Sexier, More Confident

This cosmetic surgery procedure — which has grown by 44% over the last year* — has been reported by some of my patients as helping them to feel sexier and more self-confident. What is it? It’s labiaplasty (also called labioplasty), one of the most popular procedures that I perform. This surgery has increased in popularity by 44%.Over the past few years women of all ages have become more concerned with the appearance of their genital area. Most patients seeking labioplasty feel that they do not want hanging of the labia minora beyond the labia majora or outer lips. Others feel bulky in pants or a bathing suit to the point of not wanting to wear any revealing clothing.While many patients are still shy about addressing this area of their body that they may not feel happy with, the barriers to discussing it are lowering. Most patients still approach the topic of surgery in this area in quiet whispers. I feel over time women will become more and more comfortable talking about and considering this cosmetic enhancement — just the way breast surgery was once a hush-hush topic, but now is freely discussed by many women.The Plastic Surgery Channel recently came to my medical office in Duxbury to report on this trend. The video has just been released. You can view it here on The Plastic Surgery Channel and on my YouTube Channel. For more information on labiaplasty and the three labial surgeries that I perform in my surgical suite, please see my website www.christ...

The objective of this study was to determine the impact of obesity on quality of life as measured by the BREAST-Q, in women undergoing breast reconstruction. Methods A review of the breast reconstruction database (n = 336) at the Flinders Breast Reconstruction Service was performed, with demographic data, complication rates, and BREAST-Q data being extracted and analyzed. Participants were divided into 2 groups: nonobese (BMI

Esthetic masculinization of the chest wall is one of the first surgical steps in female-to-male transsexual (FTMTS) reassignment. This surgical procedure is not a simple mastectomy: it is required for removal of breast tissue with glandular resection and skin excess revision, to reduce and replace the nipple-areola complex in the right location, minimizing chest wall scars. The creation of an esthetically pleasing male chest allows the patient to live at ease in the male gender role. In this article, we present our series of 68 FTMTSs who underwent bilateral mastectomies for surgical sexual reassignment (a total of 136 m...

This study aims to determine if a disparity in BR utilization exists in women from Appalachia Kentucky. Methods A retrospective, population-based cohort study was conducted from January 1, 2006, to December 31, 2015. The Kentucky Cancer Registry was queried to identify population-level data for female patients diagnosed with breast cancer and treated with mastectomy. A multivariate logistic regression model controlling for patient, disease, and treatment characteristics was constructed to predict the likelihood of BR. Results Bivariate testing showed differences (P

Conclusions: Leakage rate reduction with acellular dermal matrix reinforcement of anastomotic site was not detected in this investigation. However, postoperative inflammation levels and numerical predictors of anastomotic leakage development were significantly lower with acellular dermal matrix reinforcement of surgical anastomosis. This finding is worthy of further investigation, as reduction of inflammation with anastomotic site reinforcement is a novel finding, and more in-depth research may lead to discoveries on the physiologic role of the surgical anastomosis in post-gastrectomy patients. In addition, lower CRP and N...

Purpose of review The purpose of this article is to review the use of total intravenous anaesthesia (TIVA) in ambulatory care. Recent findings The number of ambulatory surgery cases is likely to increase in coming years. Recent meta-analyses suggest that TIVA offers decreased postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) and decreased pain scores in the postanaesthesia care unit (PACU) in day case/ambulatory surgery patients when compared with volatile anaesthesia. Particular improvements have also been shown in endoscopic nasal surgery in terms of decreased blood loss. TIVA consistently scores higher than volatile techniq...

The aim of this study was to assess the effect of preoperative sleep quality on acute postoperative pain in breast cancer patients. The Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index questionnaire (PSQI) was used to assess the overall sleep status of women scheduled for unilateral modified radical mastectomy in the past month. Based on the responses, patients were allocated to good sleep group or poor sleep group. Postoperatively, acute pain was assessed using the numerical rating score in the first 24 hours; in addition, the requirement of analgesics and the incidence of postoperative complications were recorded. A total of 108 breas...

Pickering, A. Serrie, E. VielSummaryChronic postsurgical neuropathic pain (CPSNP) is frequent. While prevalence varies considerably according to type of operation and means of evaluation, it can reach 37% following breast surgery. Identification of risk factors related to the procedure and to the patient and taking into account the development of new, minimally invasive surgical techniques is increasingly nerve-sparing and red...
