During my first consultation, Dr. O made feel 100% comfortable talking to him about my issues (which I always thought would be mortifying to talk about) and he was VERY informative on the procedure and his techniques, what to expect when recovering, post-operative self care, etc.. During the initial examination, he and his nurse Christina (who was present the entire time) made the experience very comfortable and informative; they gave me a mirror to hold so he could explain what he would do with my labia during the procedure so I could visualize what the end result would look like. Christina was also great through everything; during my pre-op appointment she described everything I needed to do before and after surgery in great detail and even gave me her personal cell phone number in case I had any questions or concerns at any time.
The day of the surgery was a breeze; Dr. O and his staff made it very easy and I felt confident in them which made me feel a lot less nervous (I had never had surgery nor been under any anesthesia before). Everyone was so kind to me and everything went very smoothly. I did not experience any pain until later that afternoon (my surgery was at 7am on a Friday) when the local anesthesia wore off. I took the prescription pain meds up until Sunday and kept applying ice packs on and off, which helped control the pain. I was back to work that Monday (I am a nurse and was working 8 hours a day, 5 days a week at the time), which was rough but bearable. I definitely found comfort in the fact that I could contact Christina at any time, although I didn't need to.
The post-op appointments were very reassuring, and it was good to see the progress I was making with healing and seeing before and after photos. Any questions I had were answered by Dr. O and his nurse who were both amazing through this entire process. I 100% recommend Dr. O to anyone considering getting a labiaplasty. It was definitely worth it for me as I now experience no discomfort like I did with my enlarged labia and I love the way they look now! Even if you are having any doubts or second guesses about getting the procedure in general or if you are scared, I assure you Dr. O and his staff will make you feel so comfortable and what is usually awkward to talk about will feel like natural conversation with them! At least get a consultation and take it from there. I am so happy I finally did after years of frustration and discomfort!
