Active Mother in 30s Labiaplasty - Johnson City, TN

After having large babies I developed a stretched, larger labia minora one the right side. I am a very active and fit mother and do lots of running, plyo, aerobics, weight training etc. I was always having to adjust myself down there every time I went for a run or did anything that would "pinch" that area down there. This problem even began effecting my mental well being because I thought I was deformed or different. I did lots of research about this and I decided I wanted to pursue a solution to the problem. I called around to everywhere within a 150 mile radius of where I live and discovered ETSU Physicians and Associates in Johnson City, TN. I had a consult with Dr. Bharti and he assured me that it was a common problem that ladies don't discuss often. I had labiaplasty by Dr. Bharti and it was one of the best decisions of my life. Because I was going more for "function" over "fashion" I havent done much comparison to other labiaplastys but know that mine was the right decision for me. Post op was a tough time. I stayed very sore for at least 10 weeks and during recovery often got depressed thinking I would never feel "normal" down there again. But I did finally after 10 weeks or so feel even better than I previously did!
I can say it has not only helped my athletics but also my intimacy with my husband. I had been so accustomed to the "pinching" sensation during intercourse that I didn't realize that it had been somewhat hindering my intimacy. I can now proudly say 4 months later I am completely healed and running as well as what other activities that I enjoy as well as increased intimacy. No pain, not even a scar and the appearance is very pleasing to me even though I don't dwell on what things look like down there so much...
If you decide upon this surgery don't get me wrong it is a committment for a few months and is not a walk in the park but I would do it all over again in a heartbeat! Be prepared for the surgery and listen t EVERYTHING your dr says to do. I felt that supplements such as glutamine helped my tissues heal fasted but obviously check with your dr. I enjoy my results every day!!!
If you would like to comment or see before and after pics please send message through this website. I am a very private person but would also like to extend advice to any other lady contemplating this procedure...
Johnson City Plastic Surgeon

I interviewed 8 board certified plastic surgeons and by far Dr. Bharti has exceeded every expectation I have had in a plastic surgeon. Even after payment and throughout every single step in this process including post op his nature has never changed. Always takes time, never makes you feel rushed or dumb for bringing in a list of CRAZY questions. So safe in the or. The morning of my surgery he again went over my expectations and completely calmed me down when I was ready to get up and run out of the pre op area. Amazing staff- nurse Erin was so calming to me and very good to call me back when I called back with some post op questions... I would do this again!
