He is known around his office as the 'vagina whisperer'.
That's because Dr Amir Marashi spends day in and day out creating 'perfect' vaginas.
The New York-based doctor specializes in vaginoplasty - surgery 'down there' - and performs 80 to 100 procedures each year.
And demand has grown so much the number of women undergoing the surgery has rocketed from 5,000 in 2013 to nearly 9,000 in 2015.
Dr Marashi told Daily Mail Online: 'For each person, they want something different. But the most important thing is they feel better, they feel confident.
'Some report better orgasms, feeling more comfortable in the bedroom, and so on.'
The second is functionality purposes.
'It'll be someone who has had one to two children and they feel their vagina is losing shape or consistency. Usually they're 35 or older,' he said.
'Or they'll have a problem with their labia. They're uncomfortable wearing tight clothing, tight underwear. They're uncomfortable riding a horse or a bike.
'They can be more prone to getting yeast infections.'
At the end of the day, Dr Marashi says, the choice is up to the patient. But he makes sure he consults with them multiple times before they do decide to undergo surgery.
The surgeon can shorten the labia, lighten the color, make the vagina moister, and amplify the G-spot.
WHAT IS A VAGINOPLASTY?
A vaginoplasty is a surgical procedure that results in the construction or reconstruction of the vagina.
Most vaginoplasty operations are done by private clinics as cosmetic surgery to change the appearance of the female genitals.
Occasionally, there may be a medical need for the operation such correcting congenital defects to the vagina, urethra and rectum.
- Labiaplasty - shortening or reshaping the vaginal lips
- Tightening the vagina
- Amplifying the G-spot
- Clitoridotomy - reducing the clitoral hood
- Hymenoplasty - reconstruction of the hymen
It is usually performed by a gynecologist or plastic surgeon.
It can be carried out using either a general anesthetic or local anesthetic with sedation, and procedures usually take about one to two hours.
According to the most recent figures from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, more than 5,000 women underwent vaginoplasties in 2013.
No figures have been released since then aside from the fact that the percentage has risen each year.
