My se­cret surgery

Shannon is plan­ning to have a con­tro­ver­sial op­er­a­tion – with­out telling her fam­ily…

Shannon is only 20, but she’s about to spend thou­sands fly­ing to Turkey to have se­cret cos­metic surgery. But it isn’t a facelift or breast en­hance­ment that Shannon wants – it’s labi­aplasty, which will sculpt her vag­ina into a ‘per­fect’ shape.

Although she’s too scared to tell her mum, Shannon is far from alone in want­ing a ‘de­signer vag­ina’ – labi­aplasty is the fastest-grow­ing cos­metic pro­ce­dure in the world.

Neat and pretty

‘I re­mem­ber see­ing a pic­ture when I started go­ing through pu­berty and think­ing, “That looks bet­ter than mine,”’ says Shannon. ‘The surgery will neaten up my down­stairs – I think it will look pret­tier.’

Shannon fea­tures in this three-part series, which sees pre­sen­ter Cherry Healey in­ves­ti­gat­ing eye-wa­ter­ing cos­metic pro­ce­dures that 26,000 Bri­tish women un­dergo each year.

Cherry also meets Keisha, 29, who’s off to Turkey for a Brazil­ian butt lift. The op will set Keisha back £5,000 – half what it would have cost in the UK.

Chas­ing her per­fect body puts Keisha at risk of clots, in­fec­tion and rup­tured in­ter­nal or­gans. But she is deter­mined to go ahead with her plans, even though she won’t be able to sit down for at least six weeks af­ter­wards. So is it worth it?

‘I felt like I’d been run over by a trac­tor, pushed off a cliff then hit with a cricket bat,’ ad­mits Keisha. ‘But I feel more wom­anly, and I’ve been get­ting loads more male at­ten­tion. It’s about do­ing what­ever makes you happy.’
