AN INCREASING number of New Zealand women having plastic surgery to change the appearance of their vagina.
In this exclusive video, the Herald Online speaks to a Kiwi woman who was unhappy with the way her vagina looked, described it as a "nuisance," so opted for what's know as a labiaplasty.
He hear from plastic surgeon, Dr Murray Beagley, who says he meets with two to three women each week, curious about the procedure. He says he's seen a steady rise in the surgery over the last seven years or so.
"I'm the first person that's sat there listening to them that can actually make a difference to them," he says.
We also speak with critics of the labiaplasty, who say it's perfectly normal for women to look different and that the messages about a perfect vagina are concerning.
