Interest in labia reduction surges among 18-24-year-olds
A study by a top Australian university has revealed how the number of women looking to have vaginal correction surgery such as labia reduction has surged in recent years.
The news shows how attitudes have changed, since in 2007 Britain’s tabloid papers ran a series of columns written by journalists outraged that Katie Price, aka Jordan, had said she wanted to undergo vaginal surgery to tighten her vagina following the birth of her daughter.
Seven years later, however, the idea of vaginal surgery doesn’t have the same shock value and is increasingly popular with 18 to 24-year-old women.
A survey conducted by researchers at the University of Queensland has revealed how more than 1,000 Australian women in that age range make requests for labia reductions each year.
Apart from vaginal surgery, the survey also revealed how the top three procedures young women favour are breast enlargements, rhinoplasty and nipple correction.
