Female Genital Cosmetic Surgery (FGCS) - Labiaplasty Case Study

CASE STUDY—" Enduring Constant Pain And Discomfort From Enlarged Labia"

"I only wish that I would have had it done sooner, rather than waiting,
like many women do—second guessing themselves."

“Living with constant discomfort and pain is a terrible thing to endure,” said Amy Cedarson, describing how she felt before having her Labiaplasty performed. “I've been putting up with this since my child was born, several years ago, but never knew there was a way to fix my problem.”

Amy's situation is nothing new. Sadly it is the norm, for many, many women who simply deal inwardly with the constant discomfort and loss of self-esteem they feel from having enlarged labia—either being born with them—or in Amy's case, as a result of childbirth. Yet, many women are told by close friends and family doctors alike, that there is simply nothing they can do. Amy believed it herself for several years, until she finally decided to do something about it. So, several months ago, she began researching the Internet for answers after hearing of a woman who had a similar problem and had somehow gotten it fixed. “I found and it had some of what I was looking for. That’s where I found Dr. Federico Gonzalez.”

Dr. Federico Gonzalez, a board certified plastic surgeon and member of the American College of Surgeons (FACS) with years of experience in feminine cosmetic genital surgery had seen problems like hers before. “I'm constantly hearing of situations like Amy's,” he said. “If only women knew there were good surgical alternatives, like Labiaplasty, women wouldn't have to live with constant pain from enlarged labia,” he continued.

Amy explained how she found Dr. Gonzalez on the Internet, and described the steps that led to her surgical treatment. “As soon as I saw his before and after pictures, and the results he had, well, I just knew he was the right person for me.” Saying that she was newly engaged, her fiancé gave her balanced emotional support during the decision-making process, but insisted that it was she who made the final call. “When we found out he was only a few hours drive from where we lived, and I told him I wanted to get this problem fixed, he insisted on driving me there and back. He was wonderful through the entire thing,” she said.

Dr. Gonzalez has a sensitive, understanding staff of women who made Amy's surgical procedure go flawlessly. She told of his straightforward, no-nonsense style and professionalism that didn’t gloss-over the expected results. Dr. Gonzalez performed a labiaplasty employing his unique z-plasty technique; to achieve a natural-looking rugated tissue edge (naturally wrinkled) for an excellent Labiaplasty result. The entire procedure took approximately an hour and there were no complications.

So how did things turn out for Amy?

“One word . . . beautifully!” she exclaimed. “He's such an excellent surgeon—I'm so pleased. My ONLY regret is that I wish I wouldn't have waited so long. I spent years thinking there was nothing I could do. Years of discomfort and pain that I shouldn't have had to go through. Not to mention the way I felt when I was with my boyfriend . . . now my fiancé. Now, I feel wonderful! It was worth every penny.”

When asked if she'd recommend her experience to other women in their mid-to-late twenties, her answer was an emphatic ‘YES’!! “What was said on the website was very, very accurate. I'd say it was over 90% right on target and I'm pleased with Dr. Gonzalez, his staff, and my results.”
