It’s so nice to look in the mirror everyday and see a more beautiful me. And the best part is….my inner beauty is beginning to shine through more and more. Being more satisfied with my outer self affords me more time to concentrate on my inner self. And THAT makes life wonderful.
Recently I underwent a surgery that has helped to change my life a considerable amount. Before I had this surgery I was uncomfortable about the esthetics of my genitalia. I had always felt inhibited when I was involved in a relationship and my sexuality was suppressed for as long as I can remember. I wasn’t completely proud of my body and felt different from other women.
I decided to have the operation and it has been a wonderful success that I cannot describe in words. I have no scarring and there has been no danger to my health since the surgery. The visual appearance of before and after is amazing and has been brought solace and acceptance to my life as well as my mind, body, and spirit.
I recommend this surgery to woman who feel different in their insecurity and are afraid that no one will understand or be able to assist you in this area. This surgery is a “miracle of cosmetic artistry” brought “out of the closet” because I’m sure a great deal of woman suffer from this and their fear withholds them from expressing their deepest secret.
Approximately a year ago I underwent surgery for labial reduction. I was nervous before my operation, but the friendly staff made me feel very comfortable. I’m very happy to say my results are even better than expected. The work was obviously done with care. My healing process went smoothly and there are no visible marks from the surgery. I feel confident now that I am pleased with my appearance and enjoy sex much more now that there is no embarrassment.
I must also say that I have lost no sense of feeling whatsoever and I would recommend this procedure to anyone who has been considering it. Who better to handle the situation than the gynecologist.
