What kind of medical show advocates unnecessary plastic surgery like this?
31 August 2017 | by jmharris13See all my reviews

A woman comes in with normal labia that are slightly larger than average and the doctor just recommends unnecessary plastic surgery. Labia come in all shapes and sizes. It is not ethical to advocate plastic surgery to fit some cookie cutter mold. I guarantee your partner will not care about the size of your labia. The entire show feels like an infomercial for plastic surgery.
