Woman Undergoes Surgery 'Downstairs' Because Her Parts 'Look Like A Big Mac'

**Warning: graphic imagery might disturb some readers**

For many of us, it's not a body part that we would consider a candidate for plastic surgery, but the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists reports that requests for labiaplasty surgeries have increased five times in the UK in the last decade.

On the BBC 3 show, My Unusual Vagina / Extraordinary Bodies, Antonia decides to go under the knife to alter her vagina, which she believes looks like a Big Mac.

"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."

Antonia explains that for her, sex can be a difficult, painful experience. Not just physically, but also emotionally. When men say things like 'I can't wait to sleep with someone with a normal vagina' and 'you've got a pair of balls' it can be emotionally devastating.

The surgery will cost her £3,100 ($3778.47 USD) at a private clinic, but she says it's worth the price if it means reducing her physical and emotional pain.

More and more, society is becoming obsessed with the illusion of perfection. We are able to manipulate, distort and hide imperfections with the images we share on social media accounts like Instagram and Facebook.

As women feel more and more pressure to conform to unrealistic standards of beauty, it seems even our most intimate areas cannot escape a judgmental eye. But have we gone too far?
