Labiaplasty – A Womans’ Choice.
Postoperative expectations should be discussed between the patient and the surgeon
The decision to undergo labiaplasty is an intimate one, which requires an informed opinion on the part of the prospective patient. Urogynecologists Dr. John R. Miklos and Dr. Robert D. Moore (who also specialize in repairing botched or unsatisfactory labiaplasties) started noticing a pattern amongst patients who were seeing them for second or third opinions: other surgeons they had seen would essentially state to them what look they desired post operatively, rather than asking them what they were seeking. The patients told Drs. Miklos and Moore that other consultants would make statements such as: “I know what you need,” “I know what you are looking for,” and “I’ve done this many times before and you will be happy with the outcome.” These consulting surgeons never really asked the patient what they were looking for in terms of vaginal cosmetic results of labia minora reduction surgery.

Why choose a Fellowship Trained Urogynecologist and Reconstructive Vaginal Surgeon vs. a Plastic Surgeon and General Gynecologist?
Though there are no hard fast rules as to how to choose a surgeon, there are some basic criteria that hold true when choosing an expert in any field and they include: experience, expertise and results. I suggest that results are probably the most important of the three criteria. Usually results are a product of a well-trained surgeon (experience) who has plenty of expertise in the surgical discipline discussed. Fortunately results are the easiest to verify and this is usually confirmed by seeing before and after pictures or reading/hearing testimonials.
Dangers of Surgery Abroad - Drs. Moore and Miklos treat two women in one week that had botched surgery after travelling to other countries to have their surgery
Why Americans traveling internationally can pose many dangers and complications, which may mean you would end up spending more money in the long run.
The term “medical tourism” is a term labeled by travel agencies and the media to describe the rapidly growing practice of Americans travelling across international borders to obtain all types of health care. Many surgical procedures performed overseas cost significantly less than the price here in the United States.
