Definition - What does Female Genital Cosmetic Surgery (FGCS) mean?

Female genital cosmetic surgery refers to surgey performed on the female genitals (labia, vagina, and clitoris) for cosmetic rather than medical purposes. Some examples of female genital cosmetic surgeries are vaginal rejuvenation, labiaplasty, hymen reconstruction, and clitoral hood reduction. In addition to offering aesthetic benefits, most female genital cosmetic surgeries promise sexual benefits as well.

Kinkly explains Female Genital Cosmetic Surgery (FGCS)

Female genital cosmetic surgery is presented as a way to maintain a youthful genital appearance. In some cases, the surgery can provide increased sexual sensation. Critics often point to pornography as the cause of women's desire for "designer" genitalia.

Female genital cosmetic surgery is a controversial topic. As the practice gains popularity, the medical community questions the safety and necessity of the procedures. The practice also faces much criticism from the body-positive community for perpetuating the myth that there is a certain way all bodies should look and encouraging women to pursue and unattainable ideal.
