Female Genital Mutilation (circumcision) has been practiced for centuries in Africa and other parts of the world for more than 3000 years. More than 250 million women have been circumcised world wide, and an additional 4 million girls are at risk of circumcision every year (WHO). It has no health benefits and and many girls have lost their lives by its practice. It is regarded by the WHO as a crime against humanity, a violation of human rights and a brutal form of gender based violence against women.
Ending FGM globally is necessary, It has no religious background and is condemne. This requires a change in cultural belief, better education, awareness, and raising socio-economic status of practicing families.
We have worked for more than 2 decades to stop FGM practice in Egypt, Africa and globally by spreading awareness, sexual education and giving lectures around the globe at international conferences, medical academies, universities and institutions.
We also started the 1st Multidisciplinary Clinic for Female Genital Mutilation Care in the Middle East and Africa, introducing psycho-support, non-surgical therapies and restorative surgeries
We offer FGM victims a chance to regain their dignity, self esteem, confidence and sexual quality of life.
Technique includes, removal of adhesions, scar tissue, makes the clitoris more sensitive to touch. It may improve clitoral sensitivity, sexual function and genital appearance, as well as enhance confidence, self esteem. body image identity and quality of life.
Restorative Surgery also improves sexual desire, arousal, lubrication, orgasm intensity and pain reduction by removing peri-clitoral fibrosis, thus making the clitoris more accessible to stimulation.
This specialized cosmetic & restorative procedures has been noted to help FGM victims, enhance their sexual experience, regain confidence, improve quality of life, partner relationship and psycho-sexual wellbeing.
Infibulation: A destructive FGM procedure, covering most of the vaginal orifice with skin, by cutting and suturing both labia together on both sides. It is falsely believed to preserve virginity and family honor within practicing communities.
De-fibulation (cutting the skin seal) is a simple procedure performed under local anesthesia before child delivery, vaginal surgery, and sometimes before marriage. Women with Pharaonic circumcision (type III) describe cosmetic and functional improvements after a de-dibulation procedure, while simultaneous labia minora reconstruction is sometimes possible .
We can now reconstruct a labia minora even after complete labial amputation from the vulva, this new technique has been developed exclusively for labial amputation victims of female genital mutilation and botched labiaplasty surgery.
The therapeutic goal is to achieve aesthetic refinement of the vulva to resemble uncut women, enhance sexual function and sensitivity by adjustment of the labia majora, labia minora, and clitoral hood around the clitoris. This aesthetic refinement has been shown to dramatically enhance self confidence, self esteem, and equality with uncut women.
