ACOG (American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists) Advises Against Cosmetic Vaginal Procedures Due to Lack of Safety and Efficacy Data


Washington, DC -- So-called "vaginal rejuvenation," "designer vaginoplasty," "revirgination," and "G-spot amplification" procedures are not medically indicated, nor is there documentation of their safety and effectiveness, according to A new Committee Opinion by The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), published in the September issue of Obstetrics & Gynecology. Moreover, the article states that it is deceptive to give the impression that any of these procedures are accepted or routine surgical practices, according to ACOG.

ACOG encourages women considering cosmetic vaginal procedures to be aware of the lack of data supporting the effectiveness of the procedures, as well as the potential complications the procedures can cause--including infection, altered sensation, dyspareunia (pain), adhesions, and scarring.

Over the past several years, an increasing number of physicians have marketed vaginal surgeries as ways of enhancing genital appearance and sexual gratification. Some of these procedures, such as "vaginal rejuvenation," appear to be modifications of traditional vaginal surgical procedures for genuine medical conditions such as pelvic prolapse, vaginal relaxation with symptoms, the reversal or repair of female genital cutting ("female circumcision") and treatment for labial hypertrophy or asymmetrical labial growth due to congenital conditions, chronic irritation, or excessive androgenic (male) hormones.
