Dr. Stern in the News

real magazine cover Designer Vaginas

(Excerpt from REAL Magazine, September 2005)

In this day and age when it's easier to suck your fat out than exercise it off, and women use their lunch breaks to top up on Botox, where will our quest for perfection end? Now virtually every inch of our bodies can be remodeled and improved—both inside and out—even our vaginas. REAL talks to women who had their nethers nipped and never looked back.

It might make you cringe thinking of a scalpel anywhere near your sensitive nether regions, but more and more women are opting for designer vaginas — one of the newest and fastest growing areas of plastic surgery. It may seem like the ultimate in vanity, but beauty aside, genital cosmetic surgery is often used to correct physical problems. In fact, it's not uncommon for women who have given birth to suffer from slackness in the pelvic floor and vaginal muscles. Some may even develop stress incontinence, which can be embarrassing and severely damage self-confidence. Taking the surgical route has not only boosted sexual pleasure, it has prevented further genital discomfort. Here's what you can expect when having the nip.


The two most commonly performed procedures are the labiaplasty, where the labia or "lips" of the genitals are reduced, and vaginoplasty, or vaginal rejuvenation, where the vagina is tightened. Often these two procedures are carried out together. The surgery can be performed with a scalpel, or with a laser.

As people come in all shapes and sizes, so do the female sexual organs. The vulva is the outside part of a woman's genitals, which includes the urethra and the vagina. Over these two openings lie two folds of tissue. The fleshy outer folds are called the labia majora and the more delicate inner folds are called the labia minora. The outer labia are usually larger, but with many women the inner lips protrude. Not only do some women find this looks unattractive, but it can cause pain and irritation as the sensitive skin rubs on clothing.

Labiaplasty trims the protruding flesh of the inner lips, giving the vagina a "neater" appearance.

Dr. Bernard Stern is an obstetrician and gynecologist, and an expert (at) female genital cosmetic surgery. He has performed vaginal surgery for 34 years, and genital cosmetic surgery for five years.

His Florida practice is booming. Last year business nearly quadrupled from the year before—helped along by a number of UK women who flew across the Atlantic for his specialist care. This year the numbers look set to increase by another 50%. At the moment Dr. Stern carries out three or four surgeries every day. And that's without even advertising, Dr. Stern says.

" My only marketing is on the Internet," he explains."Women who are bothered by their genitals, either emotionally or physically, find me."

His workload is pretty evenly divided between labiaplasty and vaginoplasty procedures. One in three patients opt for both at the same time.

Surprisingly, the operations are fairly simple procedures. Most take about an hour, some are even performed under a local anesthetic, and most women are back to their regular routine within a week. Sex, however, is off the cards for at least six weeks.

Over the top?
Experts say cosmetic surgery on women's genitalia redefines the concept of 'extreme makeover'

So, it has come to this. In our world of extreme makeovers, face-lifts and fat suctioning are no longer enough.

The latest thing in cosmetic surgery is centering on something more intimate: women's genitals. The marketing pitch, delivered mainly via the Internet, tells women they can look younger, feel prettier and have better sex if they'll just fix the most private part of their body.

"They all want to be young and feel good about how they look and be more self-confident," says Dr. Bernard Stern, a board-certified Fort Lauderdale, Fla., ob-gyn who does the procedures. "Some say they're tired of not feeling anything."
The hope of a better sex life brought Jean Johnson, a 38-year-old mother of two, to Stern's office last June. "I wanted to feel more sensation," says Johnson,who had a vaginoplasty, in which the vaginal tissue is stitched tighter. "I wanted to feel more confident, like it was worth it for my husband and for me."

It was her idea, she says. But after consulting with Stern, she had another procedure done at the same time: a labiaplasty, in which the labia are reduced and reshaped. During the three-month healing Johnson had moments when she thought, "Oh, my gosh. I shouldn't have done it." But she reports that her sex life is better.
