A new trend is taking over plastic surgery and it's about getting prettier or more youthful "down there": some people are euphemistically calling these procedures “Vaginal Rejuvenation’, some are calling it a “Designer Vagina”. Many women are flocking to get what’s medically called “labiaplasty”, a surgical procedure in which the appearance of the skin around the vaginal opening is reshaped. In fact, according to statistics from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), the number of women undergoing these procedures has increased by 200% since 2012. Our guest, Dr. Jennifer Berman, is not “just” a urologist & sexual health expert, but she’s a former co-host of the Emmy award-winning show The Doctors. She’s also the sister (and former television co-host ) of our previous guest Dr. Laura Berman who we spoke with in episode 14 about “Changing Sexpectations as we Age”. And just for fun, we first aired that episode on Valentine’s Day! Together the Doctor Sisters Berman co-hosted a the national television program “Berman and Berman” on Discovery Health in 2002--2003. Dr. Jennifer Berman has also appeared on Good Morning America, The Oprah Winfrey Show, The Today Show, CNN, CNBC, and HLN.
