Vaginal Rejuvenation: Controversial Cosmetic Surgery Offered At Strax

strax cover image.jpg
For women who want their junk to look like Barbie's, the world of plastic surgery offers a plethora of options.Any intimate part can be enlarged, removed, enhanced, or reduced. According to an article in this month's Atlantic magazine, cosmetic vaginal surgery is a growing trend, increasingly offered by gynecologists looking to supplement their income.

Not surprisingly, this trendy cosmetic procedure is also offered at Strax Rejuevnation and Aesthetics Institute in Lauderhill, the high-volume plastic surgery office that New Times investigated in this week's cover story. Strax offers everything from "G-Spot Amplification" to "Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation" -- designed to tone loose muscles and increase sexual gratification --to reconstruction of the hymen, a procedure that, according to Strax's website, "can repair the hymen as if nothing ever occurred."

Proponents of these procedures claim to beautify genitalia, and make sex more pleasurable."Many people have asked us for an example of the aesthetically pleasing vulva,"  Strax's website says. "We went to our patients for the answer and they said the playmates of Playboy."

But not everyone thinks these surgeries are a good idea. In 2007, the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists issued a statement advising against vaginal rejuvenation procedures, saying they "are not medically indicated, nor is there documentation of their safety and effectiveness."

"The absence of data supporting the safety and efficacy of these procedures makes their recommendation untenable," Dr. Abbey Berenson, a member of the congress, said at the time.

Another potential cause for concern: On its website, Strax lists five doctors available to perform vaginal surgeries. One of them is Roger Gordon, a surgeon who has seen four of his patients die in the last seven years, and is not currently working at Strax.

The very crux of your writing while sounding agreeable at first, did not work perfectly with me personally after some time. Someplace within the sentences you actually were able to make me a believer unfortunately just for a short while. I however have got a problem with your leaps in logic and one would do nicely to fill in those breaks. When you actually can accomplish that, I could surely be amazed.

 Surgery went well hid in dark motel room with night shades over my glasses and fly eye cups was able to watch some tv. Seen surgeon fallowing morning before heading 2 hours to my home stopped at store for produce on the way. After returning home I drew all the curtains to darken up my home. Never needed pain meds. Thursday sight was hazy like in a fog then Friday morning went to regular eye doctor got contacts removed everything looked ok then my left eye had some cells slough off was uncofortable till doctor numbed my eye and cleaned it up then placed another contact bandage on til Monday. Today is Saturday woke up seeing alot clearer already and eyes feeling good. Opened some of my drapes on the north side of the house light don't seem to be bothering me. Liking results so far can't wait till Monday to get the contact removed from my left eye.

I know surgery cures the vagina problem in short period of time. However, Surgery should be the last step for curing simple vagina problem. loosen vagina can be cured with natuarl gels or creams. So, first step for tightening the vagina should be the  use of natural creams like lady secret serum. if someone would not get the result in short period of time then they can use surgery for preventing this problem.vagina tightening

It is the choice of women to undergo such vaginal cosmetic surgery and the doctors who performs this generally requires consultation beforehand as a form of counseling and at the same time to talk about all things pertaining to labiaplasty.
