Kiss underwent the labiaplasty after her protruding labia began to cause her pain and discomfort on a daily basis. Her doctor recommended the procedure after a cyst formed on her genitals. Inexplicably, she was asked if she'd like to keep the excess skin, and naturally, she said yes.
She decided to create beauty out of the pain she suffered her entire life. Thus, the labia necklace was born! In the YouTube video, Tracy explains that she waited 8 months for the tissue to turn gray before she could craft the necklace.

Since the story went viral, she's gotten lots of comments. And because it's the internet, they're not all great. Tracy did a follow-up video to address the "haters" and media. She decided to make the necklace to show women that there was a solution to the problem that many suffer in silence. More power to you, Tracy!
