Once you have done your research and have decided whether you’re interested in either or both of these procedures, it is absolutely critical that you find a trained surgeon that you can trust with your operation—preferably one that is a veteran to vaginoplasty or labiaplasty procedures. The consequences of not doing so can pose risks of upsetting both the health and appearance of your labia or vagina; labiaplasty surgery in particular poses the risk of having too much labial tissue removed and causing further health complications if the surgeon is not careful enough.
Much in the same way that you would not ask a neurosurgeon to operate on your heart, you wouldn’t want to ask a doctor or surgeon to treat such a complex organ as your vagina or its protective labia unless they had ample experience in dealing with the region. Not all surgeons will have the experience or training in performing either of these procedures. Specialists in vaginoplasty or labiaplasty will have developed surgical skill sets specific to these procedures, including tissue removal or sculpting in the case of labiaplasty.
For vaginoplasty or labiaplasty, it is recommended that patients find a surgeon that performs these procedures on a regular basis, either monthly or weekly. You should never allow price or location to factor into your choice of surgeon; it never pays to cut corners on important medical procedures like labiaplasty or vaginoplasty.
