Honestly, I never knew I had a problem until about 10-12 yrs ago during a routine GYN exam the GYN said to me, "wow you have a very prominent pubic area, you must be very embarrassed". Well I was every second of every day after that...
I was so embarrassed. I always have to wear loose, baggy pants & long shirts. Would never be able to wear a bathing suit, shorts or any kind of thin material.
I did research surgery options for quite a long time. Everything kept bringing me back to Dr Gary Alter. I did email him, he responded with a few hours. I did book the surgery in NYC (he primarily practices in Beverly Hills but does go to NYC as well).
This was such a humiliating problem for me I told NO ONE about my shame or my scheduled surgery.
The week before the surgery I did end up telling my mom as I did need someone there with me for 24hrs after surgery (doctors rule). I actually didn't even tell her what I was having done, she didn't find out until the nurse told her when I was in recovery lol
I did have labia majora reduction with lipo of mons on August 21st.
I'm still healing. I definitely notice an improvement.
The first 10 days were pretty rough. Not real bad pain just discomfort. It didn't help that I did end up having bronchitis that started my first post-op day.
It wasn't until about 2 days ago that I could really sit down comfortably. It's like 2 days ago someone hit a switch & I just started overall feeling much much better.
