This can cause aesthetic problems (lack of confidence in sexual relations, complex ...) and functional problems (discomfort during intercourse, when practicing certain sports, when dressing, etc.). Sometimes, the lack of information causes the patients to know that it is possible to improve this part of the female anatomy with surgery.
