A woman pays over £3000 to correct her dubbed “big mac” genital, says a British TV documentary.
Antonia fiercely disclosed her surgery in a BBC documentary and even said her decision comes following bullying from men.
In an interview, she describes her own female genital as a ‘Big Mac burger with the filling hanging out’ has undergone medical operations on her labia after being subject to a shaming game by men.
Antonia also said she feels ashamed to have sex out of fear that her vagina is not visually appealing as well as it causing some pain.
Antonia’s story was featured in a BBC Three documentary My Unusual Vagina, she explained how, despite her enlarged labia causing her swelling and discomfort, the NHS would not provide surgery meaning she had to pay £3100 to a private clinic.
In order to explain what her genital looks like versus the normal one, she even drew a ‘perfect’ vagina and then comparatively drew.
She described the ‘perfect’ vagina as a hamburger ‘nice and sealed shut, nothing hanging out’.
“The skin flaps are like elastic bands, if I was to pull them I could get them down to my thigh,” Antonia shared in the series.
The “brave and fierce” woman received comments from many men she been with such as ‘I can’t wait to sleep with someone with a normal vagina’ and ‘you’ve got a pair of balls’.
Meanwhile, Antonia shared her sex life and described it as “difficult, because it can hurt and feel uncomfortable.”
“How are you supposed to enjoy it when the main organ that you would use you feel completely embarrassed by, and then on the other hand it hurts physically. It is not an aspect of my life that is explored and enjoyed,” she said.
“I think most people would agree that female genitals aren’t a particularly attractive thing to look at, just like penises and ball sacks, but the porn industry and programmes like TOWIE have fostered a culture where even genitals need to live up to a perfect ideal,” Antonia added.
The documentary follows her journey getting her labiaplasty operation done.
Antonia’s surgery was done at Fitzroy in London.
For over a decade ago, about five times as many labiaplasty or “designer vagina” operations are being done across UK, according to the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists.
Antonia was not happy with the way one side of her labia healed, saying it was ‘deformed’ and the documentary revealed that in the last three years the UK has seen a 30 per cent increase in people making misinformed decisions about plastic surgery.
