Dr. Marashi is amazing! I went to him for a corrective labiaplasty cosmetic procedure.
I originally went to a vaginal surgeon for an outer lip (majora) reconstruction in midtown Manhattan when I was 20 years old! I do not want to exploit this surgeon’s practice, so I will not specify, but at such a young age, I was not happy with how my outer lips protruded. I was even embarrassed to wear a bikini without shorts, afraid someone would notice.
Unfortunately, the midtown Manhattan surgeon made it look worse than it was! I became so tainted. I had not seen anyone in regards to its fixing it for five years! I somewhat hid the issue from myself by putting underwear on right after the shower and not looking at myself naked. I simply decided to ignore it, believing my vagina is a hopeless case anyway.
Years later (last year), it began to bother me again, psychologically. Surprisingly, there aren’t many gynecologists that offer this surgical procedure, especially close to my midtown Manhattan apartment. So, last year, I built up the courage and went back to the same doctor to fix his own work. With a significant discount and an apology, he redid his first surgery with a different sort of excision. After approximately four months of total recovery, there was an ultimate aesthetic improvement. The pain only lasted a week or so, but swelling took much longer to fully minimize. However, along with the results of this second surgery, came some asymmetry and more visibility of one side of my inner lip (minora) and I didn’t like it.
One year later (this year), and despite the two past surgeries, I was still not happy with myself nude. I’d still avoid standing in front of the mirror naked. I had to do something… again… 🙁
After hearing Dr. Marashi’s name a couple of times from some acquaintances, I scheduled a consultation with him. During my visit, he made me feel so comfortable. His tone of voice is very caring and understanding. He’s super easy to talk to and very knowledgeable and insightful. Even the practice manager, Michelle, was super warming during our chit chat about my unhappiness.
The overall concept of this sort of procedure is overwhelming as it is, but the two definitely put my mind much more at ease. What a difference from my midtown surgeon’s practice and the commute was less than twenty minutes from midtown Manhattan!
Now, it’s my first week of recovery after my third procedure! I already see the amazing results. The alignment is perfect! I am experiencing almost no pain and there’s barely any swelling. It’s like nothing happened. Also, I have been much more calm and far less “on edge” throughout this entire process, unlike my last two. Such a huge difference between the practices visited, physically, mentally, and emotionally!
I most highly and definitely recommend!! The most understanding, soothing, and calming ob/gyn I’ve ever come across. I highly recommend for regular visits too, but most definitely for vaginal surgeries and/or enhancements. Skip the “fancy” Manhattan cattle-mill-like vaginal surgical practices. They don’t compare!
Hope the world is ready for a more confident version of me!!
Thank you, Dr. Marashi!
