Sex is (or at least should be) fun, an unparalleled pleasure. The World Health Organization estimates that 100 million acts of sexual intercourse occur each day. But of all of this sex produces fewer than one million conceptions (and fewer births). So, 99% of the time, sex is recreational, at least by default.

Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation (LVR®) and Designer Laser Vaginoplasty (DLV®) are designed to improve the appearance and function of the vagina in normal, healthy women; neither is meant to treat or heal serious sexual disfunctions. We will not operate on a woman suffering from a dysfunction such as Anorgasmia (inability to achieve orgasm), Painful intercourse, or Vaginismus (involuntary spasm of the muscles surrounding the vaginal opening). Treating those conditions with LVR® or DLV® would be a disservice to patients. Finally, LVR® and DLV® are not appropriate for women with unreasonable expectations or who suffer from psychological or emotional disorders. LVR® and DLV® work wonders, but they cannot reverse the flow of rivers or violate the laws of space, time and gravity.

Cosmetic surgery in general, and Designer Laser Vaginoplasty in particular, may not be necessary to sustain a woman’s physical existence, but such procedures often facilitate a higher quality of life. These procedures aren’t for the people with whom patients are with intimately. They are for them. “Partners come and go” – writes Dr. Matlock in Sex by Design – “Some of my procedures are permanent. And quite frankly, even for those whose effects don’t last a lifetime, the notion that a woman would alter her physicality purely for the pleasure of another, whether it be society in general or her partner specifically, is offensive. I talk extensively with my patients about this very matter and urge them to question their motivation and intent before undergoing these procedures. My job is not to operate on a woman for another. My job is to take a woman’s problem, whether it affects her medically (as in stress incontinence) or sexually (as in unpleasurable sex) and try to remedy it. That’s all”.
