Awesome Doc for Breast Implants and Labiaplasty - Cleveland, OH

- 11 Oct 2011
I've always wanted a labiaplasty since I was 15 years old and I have never been happy with my chest size either. I was a full A or small B and never quite filled out my bras.
A couple of months ago I had a breast augmentation and labiaplasty by Dr. Medalie. He is awesome and I am so happy that I had my surgery by him. He was the third plastic surgeon that I initially saw. The first two I saw were primarily for breast augmentation, though I did ask about labiaplasty. I got reasonable information from each doctor about augmentation and was shown options for implants and patient pictures. It is hard to describe, but I felt that both of them were rushing a bit through the consultation and had a fixed idea in their minds about what I needed. I think I would have probably still gone with one of them (because they were recommended by friends), but when I asked about labiaplasty, I got the feeling that neither of them had done very many labiaplasties. They both said that they could do it but neither one offered to show me patient photos, and when I asked one to show me some before and afters, he stated that patient confidentiality prevented him from showing me. I am not sure I understand why because he did show me some before and after photos of breast implant patients.
Anyway I went online and started researching plastic surgeons who did labiaplasty and breast enhancement and Dr. Medalie’s name popped up at the top. He has a really great website with a very artistic design with lots of pictures and excellent credentials. When I met him, the consultation was just awesome. He spent much more time with me than the other surgeons and showed me tons of patient photos. I really felt comfortable with him and that he was listening to what I wanted. It was also clear that he had done many more labiaplasties than the other surgeons that I talked to, and he was so confident and clear about the best procedure for me that I felt a lot less nervous about having an operation on such a sensitive area.
I was pretty nervous the day of surgery and Dr. Medalie met me before the operation and clamed me down again with that easy going manner. The pain after the operation wasn’t nearly as bad as I was expecting and the labiaplasty was literally a piece of cake. It was the best decision I ever made (I had wanted it since I was 15 years old). I also love my new breasts, though in retrospect maybe I could have gone a little bit bigger. To be fair he did mention that most patients prefer to go a little larger then smaller and I was a little scared of getting that unnatural look. I have 300 cc saline implants in now and was thinking that maybe in a couple of years I’ll go a little larger and change to silicone.
My Doctor: Daniel A. Medalie, MD
To sum everything up, I loved my experience with Dr. Medalie and I love my new body. I can’t recommend him enough (his secretary, Valerie is super nice as well and really helped me plan everything). You can’t go wrong having him as your surgeon.
