ACOG Committee Opinion No. 378: Vaginal "rejuvenation" and cosmetic vaginal procedures

Obstet Gynecol. 2007 Sep;110(3):737-8. doi: 10.1097/01.AOG.0000263927.82639.9b.


So-called "vaginal rejuvenation", "designer vaginoplasty", "revirgination", and "G-spot amplification" are vaginal surgical procedures being offered by some practitioners. These procedures are not medically indicated, and the safety and effectiveness of these procedures have not been documented. Clinicians who receive requests from patients for such procedures should discuss with the patient the reason for her request and perform an evaluation for any physical signs or symptoms that may indicate the need for surgical intervention. Women should be informed about the lack of data supporting the efficacy of these procedures and their potential complications, including infection, altered sensation, dyspareunia, adhesions, and scarring.
