Labia Jewellery – Model makes a labia necklace

labia jewelleryTracy Kiss, a 28 year old British model, has made a pendant for a necklace out of a piece of her labia which was removed during labiaplasty surgery. While many women pierce their labia or adorn their vulvas by “vajazzling”, this must be the most unusual form of labia jewellery out there!

Tracy underwent labiaplasty surgery as a result of pain and irritation that she was experiencing on a daily basis from her labia, which eventually led to a cyst being formed.

Instead of discarding the tissue that had been removed during the procedure, Tracy asked her surgeon to keep it for her. She later turned it into a one-of-a-kind necklace as a way to deal with the trauma that the experience had caused.

While the labia tissue had turned grey after removal due to the surgical fluid, Tracy brightened it up by covering it with glitter. She now wears the necklace daily.

Tracy made this video of the process of creating this most unusual piece of jewellery…

Video of labiaplasty surgery

Watch this video of labiaplasty surgery featuring the personal journey of Lyndsay, a 19 year old labiaplasty patient in the UK. Lyndsay struggled for years with the insecurities that millions of women go through regarding the appearance of their vulvas, and she ultimately went through with the surgery.

At the end of the video, Lyndsey gets interviewed after the surgery has been completed, and she says that she feels a lot happier about her body and is pleased that she went through with the procedure.

There are, however, many women who experience regrets after undergoing the surgery, and labiaplasty stories do not always have fairytale endings. This site also features posts by women with deep regrets about getting a labiaplasty.

I aim to present a balanced picture on this site which is why I include content about the success stories as well as the horror stories.

Warning: the video features some graphic images of labiaplasty surgery taking place.

Is there such thing as a pretty vagina?

This satirical video highlights the misinformation among women which has resulted in the idea that women should aspire to have a “pretty vagina”.

The skewed the perception among women of what a normal, healthy vagina should looks like, has resulted in unfounded insecurities and an increase in unnecessary and sometimes harmful cosmetic procedures such as labiaplasty surgery.

Your vagina is more beautiful than you think

layla martin30-something Layla Martin is widely considered to be a sex expert.¬†Watch her video above, entitled “Your vagina is more beautiful than you think”. The video features a photo shoot that she arranged with a group of women to capture the difference between how they saw their own vulvas and how their lover saw their vulvas.

The best part for me was to see the reaction of the men. We are so hard on ourselves as women, and the reaction of the men in the video shows that there truly are mature and sensitive men out there who see the beauty in the uniqueness of their lovers, and who are not superficial and over-critical assholes.

Labiaplasty revision surgery for botched labiaplasty

Is it possible to get labiaplasty revision surgery for botched labiaplasty surgery?

Many plastic surgeons offer a procedure called labiaplasty revision surgery, specifically aimed at people who have undergone a labiaplasty and are unhappy with the results.

Most often, revision surgery is sought when the doctor has removed too much skin during the procedure, where the patient’s expectations from the labiaplasty were not met, or where the original surgery was botched.

Based on my research, it seems that the revision procedure involves using techniques to try to restore the appearance of the labia to the pre-surgery condition.

Contrary to what many people think, labiaplasty revision surgery for botched labiaplasty does not involve reattaching the skin that was removed originally. Most often, it is really a second labiaplasty aimed to achieve a better result than the first, rather, than being a revision in the true sense of the word.

I generally do not encourage or support any form of surgery on the labia unless this is medically necessary – certainly not only for cosmetic reasons.

Given that it is also usually not possible to make the labia look exactly as they did before the original labiaplasty surgery, the decision to undergo labiaplasty surgery should not be taken lightly. It should be taken after receiving expert medical advice from a responsible plastic surgeon (and not one out to make a quick buck), and after thorough soul-searching.

Picture of different types of labia

picture of different types of labia

This picture of different types of labia illustrates the huge range of variations of vulva among different women. All of them are absolutely normal and beautiful in their uniqueness.

It is a pity that there is so much miseducation out there regarding what is normal when it comes to the female anatomy, both among women and men. This blog aims to change that and to spread the message that there is no single standard of “normality” when it comes to vulva and labia appearance among women.

Does your vulva / labia look similar to any in the collage? What unique traits and characteristics does yours have?
