There has been increasing patient interest in surgical modification of breast and genital tissues ………..during the adolescent period. ( for example: Girls 18 and younger account for less than 2 percent of all cosmetic operations, but almost 5 percent of all labiaplasties.)

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists has warned health professionals of a new trend among adolescent girls – genital cosmetic surgery.
