"Dr Chidester and his staff are truly amazing! Every time I walk into his office his staff greets me with a smile and makes me feel so comfortable and important! Dr Chidester is amazing at what he does! I have had 4 breast augmentations over the past 25 years (with Two of those in the past year) I was never happy with the way they looked, it seemed like nobody was listening when I would tell them the look I wanted :( I heard about Dr Chidester from a friend and decided to go in for a consult to see if there was anything he could do to give me the look I wanted, long story short, I am 2 weeks post-op and could not be happier with the results!! I look at them everyday and cry! This is what I have wanted for all those years!! He can do miracles!! I can’t thank him enough for changing my body and my life at 52!!

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.
