Miami, FL (PRWEB) March 12, 2013
Dr. Bernard Stern the featured surgeon in the controversial film festival documentary, Sexy Baby, today criticized the film as being sensationalistic saying it incorrectly associates labiaplasty with pornography. A leading global expert with over 25 years of experience in the medical field, Dr. Stern was an early pioneer in the area of feminine cosmetic genital surgery. He was asked by the film’s directors at the onset of the production to contribute his surgical skills to the making of the documentary—and even performed surgery on a young woman in one scene.
Dr. Stern says he was greatly dismayed over the film’s inaccurate portrayal of young women’s decisions to undergo labiaplasty as being driven by the adult film industry rather than functional and cosmetic issues which relate to self-esteem. “When I was first approached, the original concept was to talk about the rapidly evolving societal acceptance of feminine cosmetic genital procedures,” Dr. Stern affirmed. “The final product I viewed was not correct in that it focused on pornography and the Internet, instead of the sound medical procedure of labiaplasty.”
First premiering at the TriBeca Film Festival in New York City months ago, the controversial documentary now airing on major cable networks throughout March and available on-line is the story of three young women (ages 12, 22, and 32) and their skirmishes with rapidly evolving cultural sexual behavior and how they’ve each accepted, adapted, and acted with regard to this sexual evolution.
“This film wrongly tries to connect sound elective cosmetic surgery—performed to deal with everyday disorders and self-esteem issues—with pornography—and nothing could be further from the truth,” Dr. Stern adamantly objects. “The young gal in the film who requested that procedure continues to tell me that her self-esteem has been greatly improved. Yet, all the film producers wanted to portray was that her decision was totally motivated by the desire to look like a porn star so that a future boyfriend would be attracted, and that the procedure would somehow help her to achieve that end. That's just not true."
Aesthetic Vaginal Surgery is a sub-specialty of medicine and surgery that uniquely restricts itself to the enhancement and/or restoration of appearance and function through surgical and medical techniques. It's specifically concerned with maintaining normal appearance and function, or restoring and enhancing it beyond the patient's present state, toward some aesthetic and functional ideal. "Labiaplasty is requested for aesthetic or functional reasons," says Dr. Stern. "As such, it improves self-esteem, self-image and quality of life... which it most definitely did in Laura’s case, my patient in the film. Proof of this is in the Journal of Sexual Medicine's Clinical Study that found an overall satisfaction rate of 97.2% for women undergoing this type of surgery. My website provides detailed information about these procedures without the sexual tone.”
With over 30 years of surgical experience total, Dr. Stern practices Aesthetic Vaginal Surgery in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area and in South Florida. He is a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery and a Board Certified Gynecologic Surgeon who specializes only in Female Cosmetic Genital Surgery. He has performed over 1,600 labiaplasty procedures during a 12 year period, making him one of the most active surgeons nationally in this delicate surgery.
Dr. Stern is an active Technical Advisory Board Member of TriAxial Medical, Inc, and has been influential in numerous clinical studies, medical society speaking engagements, development of new surgical techniques, and medical editorial. TriAxial Medical, Inc is an 18-year-old global Internet web portal developer with numerous medical Internet properties dealing with elective cosmetic surgery.
