Labiaplasty Nitemare - New Jersey

I had a botched labiaplasty by my gyno in june...

I had a botched labiaplasty by my gyno in june 2011. I only wanted a trim to make oneside even with the other. I woke up from surgery and she amputated my labia on both sides!! My life has completely been destroyed from that day! Iam only 28 and im so lost and scared to death , im so tramatized. I searched and searched drs to fix me, i found dr alter and had a reconstruction in november 2011, and another revision in april 2011 by him using skin from my hood to make me a rim of so called labia. Iam still healing and dont know what i think yet about my appearance. Im just so mentally messed up i feel destroyed and feel i will never ever be normal, most of all i feel my sex life is completely over, no labia, no good sex? Im devastated . Im very very depressed and very lost in life. This is a complete nightmare.... any support will be very helpful for me. Thank you

Hi Jessica. I am sorry that you too are another victim of a botched labiaplasty. I had my initial procedure in October 2011 by means of a wedge
Incision. Within a wk the stitches had completely opened on
Both sides. The surgeon attempted to re-suture the area again 3 weeks after only for the same thing to happen all over again. Since then, I have been to many specialists who have told me that way too much tissue was excised. Worse still the area can never be fixed now. The best I can hope for is that the remaining tissue can be reshaped a bit but it'll never look ok. I am still in pain and have developed recurrent bouts of thrush since then. I have never regretted anything so much in my entire life. I have surgery booked to do this reshaping in London in July but am so scared I really don't know if I can go through with it.
I don't think anyone can truly understand the isolation, pain, suffering, hurt, guilt and absolute trauma that this causes unless u have experienced it first hand. I really feel for you. I don't have any words of wisdom really but just wanted to offer my support, it's really not easy living the nightmare. I hope that things are looking a little brighter after the revision. Take care xx

Hi there, I was wondering how that op went,I live in England and have had exactly the same thing happen to me, I wish so much that I hadnt had it done. I dont think the surgeon had ever done this procedure before but I was young and didnt even ask. I recently seen a gynocologyst who said too much tissue has been removed so cant repair it but I am desperate to get something done as my sex life is non existant. I'm finding it very hard to find anything from the Uk ats all in the Usa xx

I posted a labiaplasty nitemare blog a few months ago......and This is my results of a labia reconstruction. I had my labia totally amputated in june 2011 by a gyno that was inexperienced. My reconstruction was done in nov 2011. So this is me now... how do i look?... its been a long emotional road and im fighting to get over this emotionally and im trying to except the changes. I wish i could go back and not have done the surgery in the first place,but in life theres no do overs. My goal now is to try to be intimate again, and hope a guy wont question my appearance and i will be able to enjoy sex again and live life again.....all comments are helpful to me.. thank you.......

ohhhh honey.... I hope you have a sweet, loving person in your life that can just help you to let go of the pain.... If you don't, try playing with yourself. Sorry if that is TMI, but whatever. Get a vibrator or a dildo, or your fingers and relax, put on some soothing music, get some coconut oil and love yourself! The first step to happiness is freeing yourself from pain and blocks associated with trauma. Remember that life is too short for fears and traumas to define us or get the best of us. You are lucky to have turned out so lovely, and if you are orgasmic, well honey, you will be FINE! Just let go and be free and put the trauma behind you knowing that there is always a divine plan, even when it seems like everything is wrong and the sky is falling.The lessons were there for you to learn, and you have come out on the other side with more wisdom. However painful, I am sure, you are BRAVE. Enjoy yourself, listen to the positive comments that people have made about your results.Please don't let your fears prevent you from living your life to it's fullest. You are whole. You are supported, and your vulnerability to show yourself and reveal the most intimate parts of yourself are enough for me to believe that you have the strength to have a wonderful, beautiful, and caring sex life. My love to you...

To any women that have read by blog. Please think carefully about choosing a great labiaplasty surgeon, i wouldn't wish my pain ive suffered on my worst enemy....please do your research!
You look perfect--really! I just had a revision by Dr. Alter last Thursday, so I'm still in the healing process. I must say, though, I looked way better immediately after surgery than I did before, swollen and all. I wish I had gone to him in the first place, instead of my butcher ob-gyn.
