29 Yr Old Mom of Two - Roanoke, VA

I was always happy with what I saw down there...

I was always happy with what I saw down there before I had children. Then after all the swelling from those two wonderful moments subsided and I was left a bit long in the labia. The unhooding I also had done was for looks because my doctor didn't want too much to hang over my reduced labia. I worked with this doctor in some of his worst times and knew him to be very logical and cool headed should problem arise. Not everyone is this lucky. When researching doctors in the area to find who had information. This doctor was the only one. But ladies...always call around to other offices of interest. It's also a good idea to find a plastics doctor who has reconstructive experience and/or GYN experience. Don't forget board certified! I have added photos and will continue to do so as I recover. Please ask anything you would like. There is no wrong answer:)


Aren't you concerned your clitoris will be overstimulated now that it's uncovered?

Well of course I am..but over time the swelling should go down and the stitches aren't even out yet. So it should provide more coverage. Plus my outer lips have done a good job at protecting it since they've gone down as well

no longer a happy camper

I wish I could say this was the best idea I've ever had but it isn't...after four weeks of healing I have discovered just how poor my outcome is. It's upset me of the sight of my lady purse so much I contacted a specialist about my concerns and was told there isn't enough tissue left to consider revision. I really did end up with a labia amputation not a reduction and my hood is crooked and has left me exposed. The bottom of my vaginal opening looks like it's been left undone and I don't even feel comfortable showing anyone of my girlfriends what's been done...so upset and not sure what to do from here


Sorry you don't like it. I hope I'm not asking to forward of a question but have you had sex with the new way yet? If so did it feel different? Better or worse

Thats a perfect question! I haven't been able to yet. I did try and it hurt too bad so I guess I'll need more time. It felt like tiny needles and a lot of pulling pressure because I was cut so short I am healing closer to the skin and don't have as much room for it to give if that explains it
Hey I sent you a private message

things not looking up

Well I've heard back from a team of reconstructive surgeons in Atlanta. They don't believe there is enough tissue left to fix this and cannot recommend further action at this time ..back to the drawing board


Trim method surgery can lead to unnatural looking results. They also hurt longer than wedge surgery. That's why I went with a wedge by an experienced doctor. You should get better with time.
Huh, is it common practice to see a marking before going under? I didn't have that either
Yes it is common so that both can agree on the appropriate action plan and know that it is fully understood. I've seen other work this doctor has done and feel I would have had a pleasant outcome had he put safeguards in place as I've seen with other surgeons.
