Some will think this a little odd but in fact it's evidence of two things:
1) How fast medical technology is advancing, to the great benefit of us all
2) How fast we're getting rich as a society when people can start to worry about such things.
What I'm talking about is labiaplasty, the medical reconstruction of the labia or other parts of female genitals. This can be done for strict medical reasons such as trying to overcome the effects of some of the more barbaric African female circumcision practices. Or it can be done for more cosmetic reasons, such as the reconstruction of the hymen (although it's worth noting that lives can be saved by this in cultures where woman can be kille for not being a virgin on her wedding night).

It may seem odd to some, but a procedure like this does have some use. You've mentioned some possible medical uses of this, so here's one more bit for the aesthetic side. It can appeal to people, plain and simple. The statement is a bit blunt, but there's nothing quite wrong with it. In some ways, it's like adding a tattoo, or a piercing. People have different tastes, but in the end, it's still important (and safer) to know the facts about labiaplasty instead of chasing it as if it's the new hot trend.
