Female Cosmetic Genital Surgery

When picking a cosmetic surgeon you need to look at least 3 things. It is not like buying a used car or a couch. You don’t want the cheapest, easiest, or the closest. In fact you want quite the opposite. A fine Swiss watch or an elegant European automobile, you’ll have to pay more for. It’s your body and you get only one chance at getting this surgery done right. Don’t look for bargains when it comes to your body! Look at the Doctors’ credentials. (You can even go on-line to and look me up), and most of all look at a lot of examples of his or her work. If you don’t see dozens of pictures, ask the doctor or nurse how many vaginal cosmetic surgeries he or she has done in the last year. Based on the examples of my work posted on the website, I have been asked to teach, to lecture, to train other physicians all over the world!

I do 4 – 5 cases a day on women from all over the world. Because so many of my patients are from out of state, my office is very skilled at assisting you with consultation, travel, and surgery plans.

Most women fly in the day before surgery by 2 pm. For your safety, if you have not had medical clearance from your private MD, we will have arranged clearance 4 you when you arrive. I then will do a history and physical, draw labs, review consents and forms, call in medications, and shoot the first set of digital photos. You and I immediately view the photos on a monitor and you and I custom design exactly what you would like to look like. You stay overnight at one of several motels or hotels we have arrangements with. The next morning is surgery. Computer generated digital before and proposed “cuts” are posted on screens in the Operating Room. In addition, prior to anesthesia, I mark your labia and/or vagina along proposed lines of dissection, and you and I go over again the desired results. Following surgery you stay at the motel. I see you the next morning before you fly out. For either procedure alone, usually 3 – 4 days and you can return to work. If you have both procedures performed at the same sitting, usually you’d like 6 – 7 days off work. A 6 week post op visit is encouraged, however since 90 % of my patients are from out of state, a digital photo and follow up phone call is the norm. No tampex, g-strings, or sex for at least 4 – 6 weeks. As with any surgery, complete healing is 13 weeks (3 months).
