Facts about Genital Cosmetic Surgery for Women and Men

Fifty years ago, social norms did not allow for the discussion of your sex life, let alone the appearance of genitals. In society today, the discussion is more common, and certainly more accepted. Authors and playwrights write about it. Musicians sing about it. There are even ways to design the look of it. Corrective surgeries like the labiaplasty and the penoplasty are increasingly popular among medical tourists, and many are travelling to Mexico to consult with specialist Dr. Juan Jose Mendez at Clinica ICER and change the look of their genitals with reshaping surgery.
Genital surgery

Genital reshaping surgery restores or improves the shape of the genitals, to the satisfaction of the patient. Female genital reshaping (labiaplasty) is performed to change the size and shape of the inner labia and the inner lips of the vulva. Male organ enlargement or augmentation surgery (Penoplasty) is performed to increase length, girth of the penis or both.

Labiaplasty

The labiaplasty is usually performed to reduce the size of the labia menora (inner lips).  The surgeon removes the unwanted tissue and remodels the labia into the desired size and shape.  Alternatively, a wedge-shaped section of the labia is removed.  Occasionally, a labiaplasty is performed to reduce the size of the labia majora (outer lips) and some women choose to have surgery to tighten the vagina (vaginoplasty) at the same time.

Penoplasty

Two factors are considered in your pre surgery consult before the operation. Length or girth? Both can be improved upon with surgery, and some men choose to address both issues at the same time.

  • Enlargement penoplasty- this operation increases penis length. An incision is made at the base of the penis and cuts the ligament that attaches it to the body. This will cause it to extend out further from the body, so is not actually longer, but more of it is visible. Depending on the technique used and the anatomical conditions of the patient, penis length can be increased by up to six centimeters.
  • Girth penoplasty- this operation increases the penis width using fatty tissue harvested (removed) from another part of your body. The surgeon may sew strips underneath the skin of the penis (dermal fat grafting) or inject fat into the penis (fat transfer).
  • Full penoplasty- some men choose to have their penis size increased in both length and girth during the same operation.

Sensitivity is not lost after a penoplasty. Once the healing is complete (approximately one month) the sensitivity will return to normal.

Fighting Cancer with Ozone Therapy

Patrizia Barrueco is a Partner Success Manager at TaqTik and works with leading healthcare providers around the world to ensure TaqTik members receive top services, quality and pricing. Patrizia explores the anticancer benefits of ozone therapy, with PR Medica in Los Cabos, Mexico.

Ozone therapy works on the principle that medical grade ozone (O3) can trigger healing responses in the body. Used to increase the amount of oxygen in the body, Ozone therapy introduces ozone into the body through autohemotherapy. This process draws blood from the patient and exposes it to ozone. The blood is then re-injected directly into the vein. The history of Ozone Therapy dates back to 1950’s Germany and studies its effectiveness in a variety of conditions and illnesses. 

What is ozone?

Ozone is a form of oxygen that is composed of three oxygen atoms. It is the addition of the third oxygen atom that gives ozone its remarkable medical properties by making it a ‘supercharged’ oxygen atom. Ozone is found naturally in the body. In fact, our white blood cells make ozone as part of their immune response to sickness. 

Benefits of ozone therapy

Ozone therapy stimulates the immune system to speed up healing. It also has anti-inflammatory properties that reduce swelling and pain. It’s an effective antibiotic, improves circulation with an increase of blood flow, relieves muscular aches and pain, builds muscle and dissipates fat, boosts energy levels so your body stays healthy, fights infection and speeds recovery.

Conditions that benefit from ozone therapy include: 

  • Cancer
  • Meniscal tears and joint disorders
  • Shingles (herpes zoster and herpes simplex)
  • Herniated discs
  • Diabetic ulcers and venous stasis
  • Allergies and chronic sinusitis
  • Lyme disease
  • Alzheimer’s and senile dementia
  • Arthritis
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Chronic hepatitis
  • Chronic bladder conditions
  • Macular degeneration
  • Colitis
  • Crohn’s
  • Tinnitus
  • Vaginal infections
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Candidiasis
Natural benefits of ozone therapy

Medical ozone is such a wonder for the treatment of cancer because it doesn’t harm healthy cells. It oxidizes and destroys unhealthy cells including cancer cells, viruses, bacteria, fungal cells and other unwanted cells. 

How does it affect only the unhealthy cells? Ozone (O3) is broken down by normal cells in the blood. Once in the body tissue, it is reduced to a single oxygen and hydrogen peroxide by enzymes such as catalase. Malignant cells lack these enzymes and ozone oxidizes the outer layer of their cells and causes tumour cell destruction (lysis). 

“Even for cancer, there is only one prime cause. Summarized in a few words, the prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the respiration of oxygen on normal body cells by a fermentation of sugar.” – Dr. Otto Warburg (two time Nobel Peace Prize in Medicine).

Carol Jumps to the Front of the Queue for Knee Replacement

Carol had been on the wait list for knee surgery in Canada for months. With class four arthritic knees, the pain had become so severe that she could hardly walk. Although Canada’s public health system covers the cost of knee surgery, Carol decided to jump to the front of the queue and travel to Mexico for a knee replacement through medical facilitator My Orthopedic Vacations.
Carol’s story
After witnessing the success of her husband’s knee replacement surgery through My Orthopedic Vacations (MOV), Carol decided to talk to her doctor about the possibility of surgery for herself. The doctor quickly recognized her need for a knee replacement and placed her on a wait list for surgery. When the simple task of walking became too painful to bear, Carol decided not to wait. She booked an orthopedic vacation through MOV and traveled to Cancun, Mexico for new knees. One of Carol’s biggest concerns about visiting a hospital in Mexico was cleanliness. But when she arrived at Playamed Hospital in Cancun, she was immediately relieved to find a spotless and exceptionally clean facility. Carol found her orthopedic surgeon to be top class and after the surgery was introduced to her own physiotherapist Cynthia. She was taken through stretches to help recovery and had regular TENS machine treatment to help with healing. Carol was more than satisfied with her accommodation at the hotel Laquita with every facility needed for relaxation and recovery- including a pool and a hot tub. The hotel was located close to everything and MOV would take Carol and her husband wherever they wanted to go, whenever they wanted to go there. View Carol’s full interview with My Orthopedic Vacations here.
“I’d just like to say to people in Canada that this has been an exceptional experience. If they are waiting on the list in Canada and want to get their knees done sooner, talk to My Orthopedic Vacations and improve your quality of life. I want to do so much more in my life, and this was one way to help me do that.”
Carol, Canada.
