There is a very worrying trend going on among young women and I want you all to know about it. More to the point, I want to warn you all away from it and even more so I just wish I could have spoken to those that have gone through with it up until now.

The “trend” I refer to is basically plastic surgery on your private parts to make them more “normal”. I know ridiculous right? Well it is happening all over the world and it is more popular with 25 and under’s than any other age.


According to The Daily Mail around 1,150 young women are going under the knife each year in an effort to normalise their flowers. The surgery actually involves reducing the size of the ladies  labia minora to make it look more neat and symmetrical. 


The article goes on to say that the desire for young girls to undergo the treatment has come off the back of adult movies and magazines that show women looking all neat and tidy all over. What these girls don’t know is that the majority of the images in these magazines are touched up and totally unrealistic.

The article goes on to say that women are also using the meeting with their surgeon to get other work done. These include mainly breast enlargements, liposuction and nose jobs.

It’s time to get real girls

The most frustrating part about the story and the statistics is knowing that without the girls feeling so insecure about their bodies, none of this would even take place. Girls need to understand and wake up to the fact that guy’s don’t care about this stuff. And even if they did, it is no reason to take a piece of cold steel to your privates and start hacking away at them.



If the surgery hadn’t even been invented, would people even care about this in the first place? Maybe the ease at which a surgeon will accept a young vulnerable girl is a big part of the problem.

If you feel unhealthy and a bit overweight, fine, go to the gym and eat well. If you think your hair is a bit greasy and tired, fine, go to a stylist and treat yourself. If you think you need a bit of colour in your cheeks, fine, go for a bit of make up.

What is NOT fine is feeling your lady parts are not symmetrical and calling a surgeon to sort it out.

Believe me, when you get a guy who loves you for who you are, he will worship every inch of you warts and all. Those parts of your body you have focussed on hating all these years will probably be parts he pays little or no attention to.


Celebrate your body (and let him do it, too)!
