My Unusual Vagina

The number of vaginal surgeries has increased five times over the last decade. What happens to the women who are turned down by the NHS but still want to have it done?

'Designer Vagina’ has become a term synonymous with vaginal cosmetic surgery in the media.

In these body-conscious times, the number of these kinds of surgeries has increased five times over the last decade. But with the NHS now only carrying out vaginal surgery in the most extreme of cases, what happens to the women who are turned down but still want to have it done?

We follow Antonia, whose confidence and relationships have suffered due to discomfort from her labia, as she attends a private clinic for vaginal surgery.

Part of a series of BBC Three programmes examining Extraordinary Bodies.
