"Dr chidester is amazing! He pays great attention to detail and made sure I felt taken care of and all my questions were answered. He did my breast reconstruction case which has always made me feel self conscious. I had been to other consultations with plastic surgeons. He is the only one I felt so comfortable with. Also, he had other options that no one had offered me. He is a really popular and great plastic surgeon and think it’s great he said yes to my case! He never promises perfection but comes pretty close to it! I feel pretty great and my confidence has gone up so much! Safe to say he will always be an important part of my journey through life and his knowledge and expertise will always have a positive impact on my life and others.

Is A Vaginoplasty For You?
During your consultation, we can determine if vaginoplasty works well for you. Dr. Chiddy will discuss your age, medical history, and cosmetic goals so he can design a personalized treatment plan. You may benefit from a vaginoplasty if you:
- Wish to increase your sexual satisfaction
- Want to restore your self-confidence and sexuality
- Avoid wearing tight or revealing clothing, like bathing suits
- Suffer from pain or soreness during sex or other sexual activity
- Fear that your vaginal muscles did not recover after childbirth
- Feel you may have a naturally large vaginal opening
- Suffer from vaginal laxity
- Received an episiotomy during childbirth
During a vaginoplasty, Dr. Chiddy removes the excess vaginal lining and tightens the remaining soft tissues and muscles. Vaginoplasty is performed in our private AAAASF-accredited surgical facility with general anesthesia. At the beginning of your surgery, Dr. Chiddy places incisions on the sides of the vagina. After placing the incisions in a discreet area, he will tighten the muscle beneath the skin. Next, the vagina opening is reduced in size by removing some of the vaginal lining. Patients can also combine a labiaplasty with this procedure. If needed, a labiaplasty is performed right after your vaginoplasty and helps reduce the size of your labia minora and majora. Once your surgery is complete, Dr. Chiddy carefully closes the incisions.
What to Expect
Right after your procedure, you may experience some discomfort and pain, such as bruising and swelling. For about 4 – 6 weeks, Dr. Chiddy recommends avoiding sexual intercourse, stopping tampon use, and minimizing strenuous activities. Typically, after about a week, you can resume work that allows you to sit. However, it takes about three months until you have fully recovered. After recovering from vaginoplasty, you will have a rejuvenated vaginal opening that looks and feels better. Additionally, some patients report heightened sensitivity during sexual intercourse.
