  • Joint Report on Terminology for Cosmetic Gynecology

Cosmetic gynecology (also known as female genital plastic and cosmetic surgery) lacked standardized nomenclature and procedural definitions.

The current terminology used to describe cosmetic gynecologic procedures includes many nondescriptive, trademarked, or informal names, which contributes to substantial ambiguity about their aims and specific techniques. The development of clear, uniform descriptive terminology for cosmetic gynecology has been developed for patients, researchers, and practitioners across multiple specialties.
