We hate to say it, but it’s true. Just like everything else in this world, in vaginal surgery, you get what you pay for. Recently, we’ve become aware of increased patient concerns that their surgery will not accomplish their desired result, aesthetic or functional (e.g., sufficient tightening, increased sensitivity). Subsequently, these women fear having to seek a second, reconstructive surgery to correct their first procedure.

What do we say to this? We have a lot to say:

  • Reconstruction concerns are justified when prices are too good to be true, especially extremely cheap procedures performed outside theU.S. In addition, prices will likely be an indication of the “good doctor” identifiers mentioned above. If costs are low, you may want to question the level of care you will receive and the quality of your surgical outcome.
  • Go to the best, and this concern will be the last of your worries. In the field of cosmetogynecology, there are a few world-renowned surgeons heavily involved in major contributions to the field, in that these doctors go above and beyond to ensure not only that they are practicing the best, most cutting-edge techniques, but also advancing the field through research. Dr. Jason is one of these few doctors in theU.S.

To identify the best doctors, like Dr. Jason, it’s important that a potential patient examine doctor’s training (keep a careful eye for extensive training in gynecology, as well as cosmetic surgery), surgical work (pictures!) and research contributions to the field. Before and after pictures are of special importance. The seasoned surgeons who have performed the procedures extensively have abundant photo collections displaying their surgical work. When consulting with a surgeon for your Labiaplasty or Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation surgery, it is important to ask them about their photos and look for a large number of photos, as well as quality aesthetic results in the post-op photos. Doctors who provide excuses (red flag!), such as, “I don’t take pictures,” probably have not performed the procedure all that frequently.

As for his most recent contributions to the field, Dr. Jason is working on the beginning of a study using type A Botulinum toxin (i.e., Botox®, Dysport®, Xeomin®) for vaginal pain, both intra-operatively and post-operatively. His prelimary studies have demonstrated when botox is used intra-operatively that the average patient utilizes post op pain medication for 2 days versus 7 days, hence making the patient’s post operative experience much more comfortable.

Dr. Jason has vast experience (over 10 years) utilizing type A Botulinum toxin (Botox®), for refractory cases of dypaurnia (painful intercourse), vulvodynia, pelvic pain and post operatively when indicated as well as more traditional uses of Botox®.
