Labiaplasty Success Story
by Dr. Goodman
All I knew about the patient I was about to see were the
few cryptic words typed on my daily schedule: "Danielle Wallace;
Danielle, as I discovered in our patient lounge when I went out to greet
her, was a 20-year-old college student from UCLA accompanied by her mother
who, as I was about to discover, had only recently been informed by her
daughter as to the reason for her visit.
Keeping sexual experiences and concerns private from ones
parents is the rule in my experience, so I was not surprised when Danielle
told me her tale, and the fact that it was only recently that she, in
a teary confession, had poured out her feelings and insecurities to her
mom who was, as it turned out, initially flabbergasted, then skeptical
and, as she began to understand the depth of her daughter's concern, quite
Danielle had been sexually active for almost 3 years, but
felt unable to fully express herself secondary to, as she described it,
her self-consciousness over "...being so big... (or, "well-endowed,"
as we say in our office), " ...down there..." Sex needed to
be in the dark ("donít look at me...") and although she
enjoyed it, she rarely permitted her boyfriend Ryan to enjoy oral sex
with her. Ryan was aware that Danielle was self-conscious about the size
of her genitals, especially the "extra flesh over my clitoris..."
but, according to Danielle, it didnít particularly bother him-
"He says he loves me as I am, I know, but all I know is- what I have
I don't like.."
"I feel so large. I feel unattractive. I know it doesn't
bother Ryan, but it does bother me. I have to 'rearrange' my lips when
I wear jeans and I get so chafed I've stopped riding my bike to classes.
I can't even wear thongs for fear that something will bulge out..!"
Danielle went on to say that she had since puberty noticed
the "extra flesh," but that it wasn't until high school, talking
with her friends and perusing online social sharing sites that she realized
that she was ìlargerî than her peers, and that something
could be done about it...
I enquired about Danielleís sexual life. She enjoyed
sexual intimacy (the forgoing notwithstanding), became appropriately aroused,
and was frequently orgasmic. She offered no history of physical, verbal,
or sexual abuse.
Examination (see photo) revealed robust-sized labia minora
flowing from quite generously sized prepucial and clitoral hood folds.
The labia minora fused posteriorly below the introitus via a modestly
hypertrophied posterior commisure.
told me that she "just wanted to be less fleshy, less 'flappy"'
all over: hood, labia, and commisure. She "didn't want to "look
like a Barbie doll," although she was acquainted with a girl (also
a patient of mine, as it turned out), who had a "Barbie Doll Look"
and was very happy with it... "I just want the extra flesh off, but
I want it to look natural," was how she put it.
We poured over dozens of "before and after" photos
from my practice. Each with different "looks" depending on the
anatomy and whether I utilized a "sculpted linear resection"
or "modified V-wedge" surgical technique. She commented that
this was what had drawn her to my office rather than surgeons who were
geographically closer to her, but who only used one technique and whose
post-op photos"...all looked alike..."
After ~ 1 hour of examination and consultation, answering
questions and negotiating the exact procedure and "look" that
she wished, a tentative surgical date as set during her spring break.
I told her that I wished to see her again prior to surgery to make sure
she was making the right decision and to review her cosmetic desires and
concerns, and to make certain we were "on the same page..."
She was comfortable with the idea of a local anesthetic, allowing for
an office procedure and significant financial savings.
Her surgery was performed on April 2, 2009. I saw her for
her first post-op visit 1 week later, and again during Summer Vacation.
Her post-op photo is shown here. A short time later I received the following
note from Danielle. It speaks for itself...
