For the cosmetic surgeries performed on private, intimate areas like labiaplasty, breast work, women nowadays are preferring women surgeons. The reason is that many women feel that women can understand their issues, better over men. Also they are feeling more
comfortable with women surgeons, as they are of same sex.

Some hospitals are catering to the needs of women only surgeons by maintaining a women only theatre room. This development would in future enable women, who have kept away surgery for cultural or religious reasons, to consider plastic surgery.

The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS), owing to the new preference of women have made it available the female surgeons for the said procedures, through BAAPS membership. BAAPS said that there is no such demand from men, pushing in for all-male teams.
