Should I Have My Labiaplasty Performed by a Plastic Surgeon or by an OB/GYN?
The answer is neither.
Plastic surgeons tend to focus the majority of their time and focus of their practice on the most common procedures, including breast augmentation, face lifts and liposuction. A vaginal rejuvenation procedure is usually a secondary procedure that plastic surgeons don’t often have the opportunity to perform with which they have limited expertise. Often times they do not perform them at all. OB/GYN’s may examine hundreds of women monthly for yeast infections or pap smears, but they too have minimal to no training in regards to performing a state of the art vaginal rejuvenation procedure. Cosmetic gynecologic surgery is ideally performed by a surgeon who specializes in the field of aesthetic vaginal surgery to provide you with premium aesthetic and functional results. Ideally, patients should seek out a specialist who has performed hundreds or even thousands of labiaplasty procedures and is intimately familiar with the varied anatomy, patient preferences and latest surgical management to provide the utmost results for each patient’s unique circumstances and needs.
When researching a qualified cosmetic vaginal surgeon, make sure to look into the following:
Verify the credentials of the surgeon
Review before and after photos of their patients
Consider the number of vaginal rejuvenation procedures performed
Request patient testimonials
