I have to say I was a bit scared at first and since it’s a topic many of us don't speak about, I really didn't know who to trust with my Labiaplasty surgery . I definitely knew this was a procedure I wanted to have done by a plastic surgeon oppose to my GYN. I did a lot of research on Dr. Goldberg and found that she had excellent reviews, knowledge of Labiaplasty as featured on YouTube, followed by experience and no pending medical malpractice. I decide to drive about 1.5 hour for my consultation to meet with her for the first time to see if I was a candidate for this surgery and to make sure she was the doctor for me. Her staff upon arrival were very friendly, professional and I didn't really wait more than 2 minutes to be seen. Once I met Dr. Goldberg, I knew right away I was in the right place with the right doctor. She answered all my questions, she made suggestions but also allowing me to make complete decision of what I wanted to have done. She was able to schedule me right away to have my procedure done. I will be honest, I was very scared to know that she used Local Anesthesia instead of General. During the time I waited for my procedure day I watched YouTube testimonial on this procedure which I wouldn't recommend since everyone is different and so are the doctors performing the surgery using different techniques for Labiaplasty. The day of surgery I was scheduled first thing in the morning, took my medication as instructed by the nurse who was assigned to help me with any question up to the day of surgery. She was awesome and had also had the procedure done and was able to insure it wasn’t as bad as it may seem. Surprisingly, this surgery has been done by many of Dr. Goldberg's staff so it always felt as if I was getting a real life experience answer. Before the procedure they asked me what movie I wanted to watch, they allowed me to select from an unlimited amount of movie options. Funny thing was Dr. Goldberg and her assistant knew all the movies from previous surgeries so it was fun to joke around in a time as a patient you are extremely nervous. She started the procedure with some pitches putting the Local Anesthesia and I DID NOT feel a thing for the rest of my procedure. I was actually working answering emails and text messages from my phone and casually looking at the movie playing on a huge screen TV to my left. I took a picture during my procedure because no one would believe me if I told them how painless it was. The day after the surgery I had a question and it was a Saturday and Dr. Goldberg returned by call within 2 minutes of me leaving the message with her after hour service. I had very little bleeding but did have some discomfort the first night, nothing major and very normal. Within 48 hours I was back to doing everything I did in my regular day minus lifting heavy things or wearing tight pants. I followed up for my scheduled appointments (every two weeks) and today at my 2nd follow up, after just 4 weeks since surgery I was cleared to go back to my regular life style (can’t wait to tell my husband). Lol This procedure is something I would highly recommend to anyone who has discomfort or simply doesn’t like the way it looks. DR. GOLDBERG is the best at Labiaplasty and I would highly recommend her for this procedure, she has met my expectations 100 % and her staff is incredible understanding and professional.
DANA GOLDBERG YOU ARE THE BEST!!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH !!!!!
