Frankencrotch: Why Limit Female Genital Surgery to Labiaplasty? – Picture Alert
Posted Oct 30 2009 12:00am
This woman e-mailed to call our attention to a nightmare “designer vaginal rejuvenation” she had. She herself called her privates a “frankencrotch” before she was repaired:
It has been about 2 years since I had my surgery with Dr. “X.” What cost 8,000 to have done as part of his “seminar”. It has cost 10,000 to fix. It was devastating. Dr. “X” wouldn’t return calls and his office would be nice one minute and rude the next. I lived out of state and they would change appointments after I arrived to LA and had my hotel. He would run so late that I actually missed a flight home. This experience has drained me physically and mentally. I was scarred and disgusting looking. My vagina was perfectly normal looking (before surgery.) I wanted a prettier private area. Not a scarier one.
I went to another doctor to fix what had been done to me. I don’t know how he made it look normal. It took 3 surgeries to make it right. This was the most expensive mistake I have ever made.
With the woman’s permission I have reproduced the cogent parts of her story from her site (which she says she will take down in one week.) Her point is that people shouldn’t have the vaginal rejuvenation operation. I have been cautioning limitations in the surgery “down there” for years. When the operation is limited to the “lips” and the technique is right, the problems are few.
On the next page I will post some images from the woman’s site. They are graphic and you are warned. This is not a Dr D case, but is presented to inform the potential labiaplasty patient.
