Labiaplasty Regret - United Kingdom, GB

I thought I was normal and all us females looked...

I thought I was normal and all us females looked the same but in my first relationship my boyfriend remarked on my big flaps,the only reference I had for other vulvas was porn when I looked at the magazines I didn't resemble the women in them,years later I was dating a guy I worked with,I was approached by another guy in work for him to tell me I had big lips,obviously he had been told by the guy I was dating-the third time this humiliation happened I was told by another guy I was dating in front of a room full of people that I had dangly bits like a man,I did not like the way I looked for 14 years as felt like a freak.I scouted different surgeons and they were all qualified the same,so I went with the cheapest,he removed all my labia minora after asking me 3 times did I want it all of and I said no,he talked through the wedge method and said oh there's blood vessels there,I asked is that a problem how are you going the seal them,oh don't you worry about that he said,so he took a blow torch to my privates,I woke up,looked and was horrified!I could not walk as I was burned and in tremendous pain,he removed all my minora burned me,the skin over my clitoris is like a piece of chewing gum,I look even more abnormal now than before surgery,I had a problem with about a cm each side of skin,now I have issues with the way I look from my clitoris to my backside as whatever he used to burn the skin also burned right up to my butt,I have very visable scars,there is no symmetry and I look like Frankensteins wife,my head could not cope and I was off work for 12 months in total,I was on anti depressants for years after and I felt very suicidal,I still feel suicidal and every time I look,I feel worse,my head cant cope with it,if I had to do it all again I wouldnt even if it was done right,my sex life before this with big lips was great even if the boys I dated found me repulsive,now my life and sex life is ruined he burned me with I'm guessing something similiar to a blow torch so he has burned the outside and inside of my vagina, burning that sensitive area causes a lot of pain for sex also he has made the entrance to my vagina very small,not big enough for sex and I'm guessing not for child birth either,wish I never did it,some days feel like hanging myself.the skin he left is attached onto other skin I am not even anatomically correct,it so obvious I have had surgery, I said to him I don't want scars I don't want anyone to know,he didn't listen didn't care,my life and sex life is over, I strongly advise you not to get this procedure done,if you have a life and do not cry every day at the way you look,then you do not need this,as it can go wrong,I didn't even fit that possibility into the equation, I look like a freak! I went crying to another surgeon he performed a fat transfer to give the illusion I had minora,he told one of the nurses he would stand in court for me as it was a botched job,wish I never did it.

freak!

Labiaplasty performed by qualified surgeon who specializes in reconstruction of female genitals, yea think he may have lied on his cv about that one.hope karma gets him and ruins his life like he's ruined mine.

It's repulsive, I don't think anyone knows the female anatomy, even nowadays.

Honestly hunni it doesnt really look bad at all.

Honestly I wish mine looked like yours.. It doesn't look bad at all! Some girls would kill to look like that! What you have sounds more like body dysmorphic disorder look it up, it might be hard to admit but I'm pretty sure that's what you have. :/ it's very difficult to deal with, have you tired therapy specifically for body dysmorphic disorder? You may want to give it a try. It's very hard.. :/ just remember some girls wish they looked like that, I do..

Im researching surgeons now to get mine done. Im so sorry this has happened to you but don't give up this can be fixed. Honestly I've seen your pics and I've seen much worse. I really couldn't tell what the problem was until you pointed them out.

It is a truly awful psychological experience, if you have to pay extra or fly thousands of miles to get the most experienced surgeon in this field, please do it, as your results are with you forever, nothing can prepare you mentally for it going wrong.

Hi have you found any good surgeons yet?

For me not yet I have to get my body to work first before I get reconstruction. I saw a surgeon on embarrassing bodies perform labiaplasty she is called Angelica kavouni in Harley st, the girl on the tv was happy and the surgeon didn't remove everything.

I think and as a labiaplasty patient too that it is a shame that a man was behind your reasons to have the surgery. I had mine because I didn't like them and I am quite happy. Trim technique surgery leaves many women with poor results. I recommend soul searching before having the surgery and them find a quality surgeon take your time to pick the good ones. Then you can be happy like me. I just hope that after what has been done here that you can have a repair done. I am no expert in that.

I think it's a shame that men can in effect bully women about their genitals and make them feel abnormal, I developed a hatred for my extra skin and I wanted to look like everyone else as it was brought to my attention that I didn't look like other women, I didn't even think about my privates when I was in a relationship and I enjoyed sex, the comments I was getting were becoming public it was very humiliating, maybe if I had a different personality I would never have received them or never have taken the comments on but it was always in the back of my mind, so I got this done for me because I just wanted to look normal and unremarkable. I was red labia reduction for over ten years, I couldn't wait to wake up and look like everybody else,then this nightmare started,my surgeon was apparently the best in the land,but you wouldn't even treat your car the way I was operated on, he has also reduced the entrance to the vagina as he took all the skin off, tightened above the clitoris removed skin below it and attached skin to other skin which is not anatomically correct, had I known this would happen I obviously would never have done this, I am going to try and save and see dr gary alter, but have to try and to get the functionality aspect sorted if that can even be done, your pics look great before and after, I was much bigger than you, I wouldn't wish this torment on anyone, apart from my surgeon mr khalid khan.

Also I think regardless of the reasons behind getting labia reduction surgery, I think women deserve the same outcome, to be happy with their result and their basic instructions adhered to.

I can't believe that your doctor is the best they have in the UK. If you were in the US I would have sent you to mine and you wouldn't be in your predictament.

He's a joke advertising that, this was really important to me as I explained to him, I wanted no scars and no one to know and didn't want all the minora off, he did the opposite of what I said. Don't know how he is an accredited surgeon, it's just baffling, I wish I could turn back time.
  • Reply
If he promised no scars that is a warning to run away. I have small scars that eventually became very hard to see, but scars are part of surgery.
  • Reply
I was prepared mentally for small scars not a war zone, but yea, it should've been a warning, I think I had white coat syndrome too and believed him.

There is the English Artist, Jamie McCartney, who had the brilliant idea to mold 400 hundred of vaginas and expose it, to make us realised that we are all beautiful and unique.

I know there are going to be some people who disagree with this comment, but i'm going to say it anyways... Loulou, obviously it is taking you a long time to get over this botched surgery. It is taking me a long time to get over mine as well. If you cannot convince yourself that you are still beautiful, and cannot be convinced by the others here who tell you that you are still beautiful, then maybe it would help if you could open up to a boyfriend about all this, who will tell you that you are still beautiful and make you FEEL beautiful. The only way to get used to your new vulva during sex is to keep having sex. Just make sure it is done with someone you love and who truly loves you. Those guys you dated in the past who made you feel bad about the way you looked were total a**holes and very immature. They clearly were selfish and did not truly love and respect you, or else they never would have made you feel that way. I think that if you find a real man who loves and respects you as you are now and makes you feel beautiful, then there will be no better medicine to help you get over this. When that happens, you will start to care less and less about the outcome of this surgery and it will be a thing of the past. It wont matter anymore. I hope you feel better soon! xo

I had the same problem that you did. It looks very much the same. Im thinking about having a reconstruction. I was very depressed, but since I've been looking about reconstructions i feel better. It hasn't helped me to be told it looks ok because I don´t like how I look or feel, and I haven¨t even tried sex because I'm scared it will hurt too much. But just having the possibility to do something about it made me feel better.

You are very strong,this whole thing has ruled my head and my life,it does lift me though when people say it looks normal and is.not as bad as I think but I then look and see a freakish vulva.why on earth would a surgeon remove all the labia minora I just don't get it,so far no.surgeon will touch me for revision.I am still searching.
  • Reply
I actually wanted my surgeon to remove my labia minora completely and he didn't want to remove it all at first but he pretty much did when I kept pushing for it!
  • Reply
No I didn't want all mine off and I didn't know he was going to burn the area,burning vulva and inside of vagina,reducing and tightening the area. The whole area is a mess that doesn't function anymore.
