From the info in your posts, I gather that you looked normal before the surgery, no discomfort, you simply didn't like having dark coloured labia. This is a normal variation. Like a birth mark or pigment blotches. I am surprised that...
I wish you had posted more pre-op photos, I don't see anything unusual about the way your vagina looks. You explain very well how you felt about the way you look but I am left to wonder what was the issue?
