According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) data, 26.3% of plastic surgeons perform surgical and non-surgical vaginal applications.
Between 2012 and 2017, labiaplasty operations (within five years) increased by 217.3% in the USA. A total of 10,787 labiaplasty operations were performed in the USA in 2017, and it ranks 17th among all surgical cosmetic procedures.
When we look at the age distribution of patients with labiaplasty, 469 patients (4.3%) are 18 years or younger, 5,963 patients (55.3%) are between 19-34 years old, 3,685 patients (34.2%) are between 35-50 years old, 603 patients (5.6%) are 51- 64 years of age, 67 patients (0.6%) were over 65 years old.
Operations related to genital aesthetics have spread worldwide from the USA, and our country has also received its share from this statistical increase. Behind this rapid rise in genital aesthetic operations, the use of the internet and social media has a significant impact. In the next ten years, statistical data on genital plastic surgeries is expected to increase much more.
