I realize that I am writing this review a bit...
THE PROCEDURE: It was so fast! I was in and out of the hospital in five hours, and the surgery itself took less than an hour. Here is the one thing that was different for me from many of the reviews that I read. A lot of people said that they did not feel any pain when they woke up. I, however, immediately felt a sharp pain down there. It was not too excruciating, and it went away after I asked for more pain medicine. I was home around 1pm and I felt like a champ the entire first day.
DAY 2: I woke up at 3am in so much pain and could not go back to sleep. I consider myself to have a very high pain tolerance, and I was crying for a couple of hours because it hurt so bad. It was a sharp throbbing pain, and it would not go away with the prescribed 1 percocet every 4 hours. I spoke with a nurse the next morning and she told me to take 2 percocet every 3 hours, and voila the pain was relieved! Going to the bathroom was a little rough. I had to waddle over extremely slowly, and sitting down on/getting up from the toilet was quite uncomfortable. I slept through the night with no pain.
DAY 3: today I woke up with minimal discomfort. The site of surgery is swollen, but not too bad. I am experiencing soreness in my back and abdomen, but I am presuming that this is due to the fact that I have been in the same position for three days. When I stand up, there is some throbbing pain down there, and I still have to waddle to the bathroom. But it is a world of a difference compared to how much pain I was in yesterday.
The healing process is just beginning, but so far it has been SO worth it!!!!! There is still swelling and blood in the area, and there will be for a while, but I can just tell that it is going to be beautiful. I love my new vajayjay!! :)
And On the Seventh Day, She Walked!

Dr. Pousti is amazing!!! He made me feel comfortable from day 1. After reading his incredible reviews online I knew that he would be great, but after I met him I knew right away that I would trust him enough to perform this very personal procedure. On the day of surgery, I can honestly say that the minute I walked through the doors to the hospital, I was no longer nervous. The nurses were so sweet and caring, and Dr. Pousti took time to discuss exactly what I wanted as he drew the surgical markings on me. I highly recommend him to anyone considering labiaplasty, or any other procedure for that matter. He is the best of the best!
