Despite labiaplasty being one of the fastest-growing medical procedures in the past two decades, detailed clitoral anatomy has been largely missing from medical literature and curricula. Horrifying, right? My guest today is Jessica Pin, who is an advocate for the correction of medical misinformation about vulvas after experiencing a labiaplasty gone wrong at the age of 18.
Jessica has since launched into advocacy and has successfully had eight major medical textbooks update their content, with 15 more considering to future updates. She has also published a cadaveric study with plastic surgeons, convinced OB/GYNs to publish a cadaveric study, and effected changes in OB/GYN and plastic surgery board certification, standardized consent forms, and residency curricula. She holds a degree in Biomedical Engineering from Washington University in St. Louis.
