THERE are doctors who specialise in all different areas of health.
Whether it’s heart health, intensive care, GPs or emergency practitioners, there is someone who can help with everything.
But one doctor, looks at one area in particular – vaginas.
Labiaplasty specialist Dr Umberto Tozzi revealed he has operated on 300 people’s vaginas.
Now, the expert who has up to 50 patients a year has divulged exactly what those looking for treatment come to him for.
He says his typical clients include people who shy away from sex and even those who model swimsuits and lingerie for a living.
While he carries out his fair share of ‘camel toe corrections’, there’s one designer look he gets asked for more than anything else.
According to the Dr Umberto, it’s often the natural but “symmetrical” look that patients crave most of all.
“They want a natural aspect, only to be like everyone,” Dr Umberto said.
“There are a lot of not symmetrical cases and during surgery [so] I try to be more symmetrical.
“Just improve the outside appearance of a vagina…making it more natural and attractive.”
He said the surgery usually includes removing 3-6cm of labia tissue.
However, he added that it’s not all about function, but that for some, they are looking for improved functionality.
“Usually they are very shy patients who have never had sexual intercourse just because of shame to show themselves to others.
“In other cases, they are models who have difficulty performing their work with swimsuits or lingerie because the area is prominent.
“There are also patients who have irritation and functional problems.
“I do the surgery of labia majora usually in old patients, to increase the volume of labia majora by filler or lipofilling (fat tissue).”
Dr Umberto said that he has also performed this surgery on transgender women.
“I have made this surgery on trans women, too. They ask me to improve the aspect of their labia majora, which are usually empty in trans women and old women.
“Then, I make biostimulation of the vagina by infiltration with a needle, for vaginal dryness after menopause/climacteric.
“The benefits are especially aesthetic, but in some cases when they [the clients] are particularly large, they create important difficulties during sexual activity.”
In most cases, labias can become enlarged during pregnancy or even hormonal factors – this is something that is completely natural but can become uncomfortable.
