Abstract

Introduction: The global rise in female genital cosmetic surgery (FGCS), such as vaginoplasty and perineoplasty, has raised concerns about their safety and effectiveness. Therefore, the present study aimed to address this gap by assessing Jordanian females’ knowledge and attitude towards vaginoplasty and perineoplasty. Study design: a cross-sectional online survey was conducted among 522 Jordanian females aged 18 or older. Methods: quantile regression models were built to determine variables associated with females’ knowledge and attitude toward vaginoplasty and perineoplasty. Results: low level of knowledge regarding vaginoplasty/perineoplasty, despite positive attitudes toward the surgeries was observed. There was a significant association between knowledge level and both age and occupation. Likewise, attitude level showed a significant association with age and socioeconomic status. Discussion: The findings highlight the importance of targeted educational campaigns to improve awareness of these procedures and the associated risks. Physician-patient communication should be evaluated to ensure informed decision-making.
