Since about sixth grade I have had slightly large labia. They are not huge but for years (I am 17 now) I have discomfort alll the time. My famiy doctor and gynecologist said I am normal and strongly advised me against surgery. I cannot wear many types of underwear or clothes and bathing suits are so uncomfortable. I can't stand living like this anymore, discomfort from this has ruined so many experiences for me. I am depressed because ofthe bad memories and how alone I feel. It's ruined past times that I will never get back. I am also terribly anxious because I am petrified of surgery but I want it so badly, and soon. I feel like nobody understands and doctors don't believe me when I say I'm in discomfort. Please, if you have moral support or advise, I would appreciate it soo much. My boyfriend, best friedn and mother all support my decision to get surgery. And finally, if you know of excellent surgeons who perform labiaplasty in Ontario please let me know.I am going to look into dr. Wanzel even though Toronto is a bit of a drive for me. Thank you so much for posting on this forum. It's so helpful xxx
Hi there. I had vaginoplasty in Toronto with Dr.Jugenburg....who I believe performs labiaplasty as well. Although i can't speak to my final results as I am not fully healed yet...I can say my pre and post op attention has been second to none. AMAZING
you sound like you are anxious and maybe abit of a worrier like me which is exactly why I chose to meet with Dr. Jugenburg. I spoke to his assistant Kim and she was very kind and helpful. I even spoke to the Dr. on the phone about some questions that she could not answer for me before I even came for my consultation....which was free of charge I might add:)
I found the Dr. to be very soft spoken...knowledgeable but not cocky at all. Answered all of my questions (and I had alot) He made me feel very comfortable and broke things down into simple terms not all the surgical mumbo jumbo.
Post op I have been able to keep in contact with questions and concerns I have with my healing. (I wont lie I've had afew) but that is also in my nature. He responds to my emails promptly within the smae day I have sent them. I was also given an after hours number for emergencies that goes directly to his assistant. I was given his cell number to text as well. So really I feel like I have constant contact even though I am 6 hours away.
I might adde that they have been really flexible about appt times as I am coming from out of town as well.
Like I said I cant speak to the results of my vaginoplasty nor have I had experience with labiaplasty but I certainly feel that just Dr. Jugenburg may be worth having a meet with. good luck
Thank you for the support. I do suffer from a lot of anxiety and stress over this. It upsets me that I have had to deal with this my almost entire teenage life, these years are supposed to be fun and carefree. I feel plagued by my vagina and the discomfort I get from it. I will look into dr. Jugenburg, thanks for the tip. Has anyone has dr. Lista from Toronto? Is there any way to get OHIP to cover this? There has been some discussion but I didn't really see a straight answer. Any advise regarding labiaplasty is also welcome!
Sorry you are going through all this stress:( Dr. Lista is in missasauga actually and has mainly positive reviews on ratemds.com. I have read that he is quite skilled and experienced as well. I believe Dr. jugenburg works in his clinic at times as well for the vaginal tightening im not sure about the labiaplasty. that is what i was informed of and also says on the website but that may be outdated information? If you are looking around toronto area word of advice to not bother going to the toronto cosmetic clinic.....various reasons. I wasted afew hours of my life there waiting to get into a 5 minute non informative and unpleasant consult. you need alittle more understanding than that
I hope you find a surgeon soon so you can start enjoying your young years!
Thanks again for the advice. I have heard good things about dr wanzel so i think he will be my first choice. I also do not know if this can be performed on me yet because I am not 18..? My doctor said sinxe it is plastic surgery I can't have it until I'm an adult.
