This Woman Undergoes Surgery Because Her V*gina Looks Like A ‘Big Mac’

It’s not unusual for people to not be satisfied by their bodies and seek plastic surgery to change that.

Personally, I don’t think there’s a problem with that. If you have the money, really want it, then go for it. However, when the reason someone wants that is because of expectations curated by modern culture, then you have to question whether it’s necessary.

This woman appeared on the BBC Three show My Unusual Vagina, as she went under the knife in order to alter her vagina.

Antonia, who described her own genitalia as looking like a ‘Big Mac burger with the filling hanging out’, says she has been tormented by men after they saw it.

Unfortunately she didn’t feel comfortable with her vagina, and so avoided having sex due to feeling anxious about it, as well as it hurting her physically.

“The skin flaps are like elastic bands, if I was to pull them I could get them down to my thigh,” she said. “For me sex is difficult, because it can hurt and feel uncomfortable.”

She decided that she’d spend £3,100 on a private clinic as the NHS wouldn’t provide surgery, despite her enlarged labia causing her swelling and discomfort.

Though the price is a big amount, it seems justified given her feelings of insecurity towards her private parts. In the past she’d received comments such as ‘I can’t wait to sleep with someone with a normal vagina’ and ‘you’ve got a pair of balls’.

“How are you supposed to enjoy sex when the main organ that you would use you feel completely embarrassed by, and then on the other hand it hurts physically,” she said on the documentary. “It is not an aspect of my life that is explored and enjoyed.”

In modern culture, especially for women, the ‘perfect body’ is an image that has been created by social media, meaning that people often feel insecure about their appearance.

But for anybody who gets down looking through their social media feeds, Anna Victoria has presented two images of herself side by side that demonstrates how pictures posted online might not be what they seem.

The picture shows how different angles can give a entirely different impression of belly flab.

What people see on sites like Instagram is only a small snippet of the bigger picture. Behind numerous filters, different angles, lighting and so on, things will always be different.

However, as celebs and ‘internet famous’ people post more and more stuff, the lines between reality and fake become very blurred. All in all, the things that are seen are taken as face value, which subsequently creates these false expectations.

During the documentary, the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists report that in the last decade five times as many labiaplasty surgeries are being carried out across the UK, thanks to the image women think they have to live up to.
