Labiaplasty - Atlanta, GA

I'd expressed interest in getting a labiaplasty...

I'd expressed interest in getting a labiaplasty since age 16. I re-visited the thought here and there but got comfortable enough with my partner (now husband) and scheduled a procedure on September 3, 2016 with Dr. Nelson Castillo. I went with a wedge incision which from the dr.s words and my research is much safer and cleaner healing. The healing process was hard but i knew exactly what to expect. The day i went home i felt really no discomfort, the next day my body felt like it had been through trama. after that i experienced little to no pain but was in bed for a few weeks with little walking around. (I had my partner right there to take care of me so I really took it easy and stayed off my feet with ice on my V). I am in love with my results and would recommend anyone thinking about doing this procedure to do their research and to first know that there is a wide rang of what "normal" is. that being said I found i was way more confident with my V after doing so much research. I did however feel the need to go through with it due to the discomfort i felt physically. I am 100% happy with my results and never consider "going back" i am overall more comfortable and confident.

Finding Dr. Castillo was like finding a needle in a haystack. I truly wanted to find a surgeon who was overall well reviewed, not just with labiaplastys but in personality and experience. When I came across Dr. Castillo's reviews online I immediately got excited and called for a consultation. I left a voice message at the desk and was surprised to have the Doctor himself call me back. We discussed the procedure I was interested in briefly, he was open to any questions, concerns and was very poliet not to push. Because this wasn't something that I had talked to many people about prior to discussing this I was nervous to say the least. At my first appointment my husband and I met with Dr. Castillo and knew right away he was the perfect fit for us. He was so knowledgeable about anatomy and the ins-and-outs of the procedure. We discussed questions and concerns we had about the types of incisions that went along with labiaplasty and the pros and cons of each. The first appointment the Dr. photographed my vagina and then we went over my desired results. The way we met first, discussed any and all questions and then did the exam made me feel like Dr. Castillo really thought through how to make the client as comfortable as possible. I truly appreciated all throughout my relationship with Dr. Castillo how he went out of his way to make me feel comfortable and as if I was his first and top priority. My schedule was also very important to Dr. Castillo. I was able to set up appointment with Lynne conveniently and work around my life. We met three times prior to the surgery as well as emailed to make sure both the Dr. and I were on the same page as far as my goals for the results of the labiaplasty. Dr. Castillo did a great job directing me to different sites and references to get fully educated and confident as to what I wanted. Procedure day came and went very smoothly. I arrived early Saturday morning so the office space is all mine. Which was so nice. Lynne sets the mood by putting oil in the defuser and it couldn't be more relaxing or welcoming. I choice to have it done right in the Dr. Office with local anesthesia and I was out within 3.5 hours. When it came time for healing Dr. Castillo made himself available to me in every way. He set me up with a packet prior to the procedure date with all of the wound care so I was prepared. I was in close contact with the Dr. for the first three days and i never felt bad reaching out. Dr. Castillo responded to a concern I had late at night within 30 minutes. He gave me his personal number and we were on the phone every few hours until I could come in the next day. He truly goes above and beyond making sure you are safe, comfortable and that your healing is going as smoothly as possible. It has been eight weeks now since my labiaplasty. I am fully healed and the results are spectacular! The confidence I have in my everyday life is something that I would never be able to fully put into words. My labia majora is significantly reduced in size and appearance making me feel more comfortable and able to do more physical activity. I am grateful for Dr. Castillo's practice and everything he was able to help me with. My over all experience with Dr. Castillo's practice was above and beyond.
