First of all, you are not alone! This procedure is very common – Dr. Begovic has performed hundreds of these surgeries and specializes in this procedure. Excess labia tissue causes discomfort in clothes like jeans or leggings. Her patients also complain that it is hard to keep this area clean and there is irritation from rubbing or toilet paper always gets stuck. Women get Labiaplasty because they are embarrassed by seeing fullness in the groin area through their clothes, in bathing suits and bikinis, and also when intimate. During intercourse or otherwise, women want to feel confident with their entire body.
Dr. Begovic also offers Thermi-VA, a temperature controlled radio frequency machine for vaginal rejuvenation. It is a 30 minute procedure that requires no anesthesia and feels like a hot stone massage. It is performed either in the office or in a procedure room. Thermi-VA builds collagen, tightens tissues, and helps increase blood flow to the vaginal area. Patients report increased sensation after just one treatment. It is ideal for tightening the external labia (labia majora) and internal vagina without needing surgery. It is often performed in conjunction with labiaplasty.
Women who experience discomfort, pain, or embarrassment because of the size or shape of their labia minor are candidates for labiaplasty. Many patients are born with excess labia minor or asymmetry. Others notice changes with pregnancy or age. Even women who have minor issues such as disliking the wrinkly edge of the labia, having minor irregularities, or just want a cosmetic improvement are great candidates for this surgery.
Many patients think that this procedure is painful or has a long recovery. The opposite is true! Dr. Begovic has developed a Labiaplasty procedure that has a quick recovery and minimal pain. In fact, most of Dr. Begovic’s patients take either a single pain pill post operatively or even only Tylenol. Patients are required to avoid sex or tight fitting clothing and care for the surgery site for a month after surgery, but otherwise the healing process usually does not interfere significantly with daily life.
Positive Labiaplaty reviews are rare, which is why I want to write this review. I was unsure about this surgery because it is a fairly new surgery and has a lot of mixed reviews and opinions. I set up a consultation with Dr. Begovic to get more info. She told me this is a simple and low discomfort surgery. I did not really believe her, but I decided to get the surgery. She was right, I had no pain and VERY VERY little discomfort. It was a little uncomfortable when I went to the bathroom the first few days, but I think I was being overly cautious. I stayed in bed for 2 days and iced the area often.
I recommend this surgery to anyone who is self conscious about this part of their body. I had a great experience with Dr. Begovic and the surgery in general. I am a month and a half post surgery and could not be happier.
Dr. Begovic is Wonderful!I had 5 scars. 4 c-section scars and 1 botched tummy tuck scar (from a different doctor). I had gained weight and also had a muffin top. I was miserable about my appearance. Dr. Begovic performed liposuction and scar revision. I could not be happier! The outcome is better than I expected. My blouses fit so nicely and I even bought a 2 piece swimsuit! You are in good hands with Dr. Cat. She is so caring, and listens carefully to what her patients want
