Yoga pants to blame for a sudden spike in Cosmetic Surgeries – but not the kind you’re expecting!
We’d all probably like to look a little slimmer in our yoga pants, but the tight trouser trend has got some women concerned about the appearance of another part of their body – and a growing number of them are seeking Cosmetic Surgery to achieve the desired look.
The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery reported female genital surgery has increased by 49% in 2014 alone and the sudden spike in procedures is being blamed on changes in fashion.
In the beauty world, it has become popular for women to remove most (if not all) of their pubic hair and consequently, ladies are more aware of the appearance of their vagina. As one Surgeon explains, “There has been a rise in women going bare down there, having Brazilian waxes and Laser Hair Removal… It has become fashionable and as a result women have, all of a sudden, started to see things they may not have taken notice of before.”
Whereas, when it comes to fashion trends, swimwear, tight jeans and yoga pants can also be a problem, “Some women have a real issue with contouring when wearing tight jeans and yoga pants… They want to look and appear sleeker in that area.”
A rise in awareness about the ‘designer vagina’ and the options Cosmetic Surgery can provide means more women are seeking medical help to correct a look they’re unhappy with and Labiaplasty is now one of the most popular Cosmetic Surgeries among women.
Often women request the procedure to tighten their genitals after child birth, this can be achieved surgically or a non invasive treatment called ThermiVa is also available.
