Female Genital Cosmetic Surgery (FGCS)

Female Genital Cosmetic Surgery (FGCS) refers to non-medically indicated cosmetic surgical procedures which change the structure and appearance of the healthy external or internal genitalia of women.

According to figures from Medicare, the number of women undergoing FCGS in Australia has increased dramatically in recent years. It appears that in response to changing cultural norms this surgery is increasingly being sought by women who want to either feel ‘normal’ or look ‘desirable’. As a result, GPs are increasingly managing patients who present seeking surgery due to the concerns about the appearance of the genitalia.

Female genital cosmetic surgery – A resource for general practitioners and other health professionals provides information on what FGCS is, the factors driving demand, and a set of practical recommendations on how to manage women requesting a referral for FGCS or expressing concern regarding their genitalia.
