What types of male genital cosmetic surgery are there?
Apart from reconstruction of the foreskin, the most important techniques are those of lengthening the penis. The first of these is performed with an external extender (a plastic apparatus with metal shafts that adapts to all types of penises): this apparatus must be worn on the penis permanently for six months, and after this time the penis is two centimetres longer. Another technique consists in sectioning the ligaments situated behind the root of the penis to lengthen it by two or three centimetres, but with this technique the member is not very stable, it wobbles when erect. Then there’s surgery to thicken the penis (lipofilling), in which fat is extracted from the patient’s body and injected into the penis. Unfortunately, this fat sometimes dissolves, causing deformities like lumps or asymmetries in the penis. Another option is to graft skin from the dermis, in which strips of skin are taken from the groin or the interior of the buttocks (to conceal the scars) and grafted under the skin of the penis: but if the grafts don’t take well, they can form irregular protuberances. There’s also impotence surgery, in which the cavernous bodies are fitted with a receptacle that the patient fills with a serum when he wants to have sexual relations, and in this way he achieves an erection.
And what types of feminine/female genital cosmetic surgery are there?
For so-called ‘designer’ vaginas, the procedure consists in narrowing the vaginal walls in patients with dilated vaginas, by means of either surgery or laser. Another surgical technique consists in stretching the mount of Venus (lifting the pubis), or liposuction of an excessively prominent pubic mount. Another procedure is to inject fat obtained from the interior of the thigh into the labia majora of the vagina, to give them a more natural and youthful appearance. And finally, surgery for reshaping the labia majora, if they are too long or asymmetrical.
