"There are no words describe how it feels to be a middle-aged woman that worked my whole life & I feel like time has taken away my beauty. I decided to take some risks and look into the world of plastic surgery. I work in the beauty industry had to have seen a lot of facelifts and a lot of really bad but jobs I work personally with three high and local Newport Coast plastic surgeons and still was never impressed. When I met Dr Bernette she was such an intelligent , calm, aristocratic loving beautiful woman! After my exam I realized how genuinely sincere she was when she told me-genuinely how beautiful I was. I really believe her.... said there are a few things that she would do 'procedures' that she suggested ( that were non-surgical )that would erase the looks of stress and tiredness, that even when I had slept for solid 12hrs a night, would not go away! I have gained such an education from her about what I eat and how that I feel projects such an inner beauty to come out! With her expertise and some of the most non-invasive and non-painful injectables! Also the help of The products she chooses to inject , she has a wide variety of choices that are all-inclusive with Hydrolonic acid ( probably spelling it terribly) and collagen have all doubled my experience of looking the way I want to look! Dr. B is a healer. I'm a single mother looking to find a healthy relationship ... but Before Dr. B I had been held back, feeling that my outer appearance was no longer attractive. NOW I feel so much more confidence when I put my hand out to shake someone's hand or smile and I feel like I don't look like I haven't slept in three days LOL. Thank you Dr B into your amazing staff it's a game changer I would recommend her Procedures and techniques to anyone! Love & Light -Hxo"- H.H. / Yelp / May 19, 2018

"It is hard to put into words how very happy I am now that I have had the Mommy Makeover. After all of the exercising and dieting I did after my last pregnancy, the loose tummy skin and drooping, smaller breasts and stubborn fat, uhhh so frustrating. So with Dr. Bernett's s t outstanding treatment and very caring manner, I feel like a new person! There is no other way to describe it. I am happy being a mom of course even before the surgery, but now I am so very happy with my improved look : )"- Anonymous / RateMDs / May 31, 2015
"I feel like a new person after my Mommy Makeover! I recently was treated by Dr. Bernett, and I couldn't be happier. After my last pregnancy my body changed a lot, not only weight gain, also drooping breast and the loose tummy skin. I did a good amount of exercise and was careful with my diet, but the drooping, and loose skin did not improve much. Plus some areas of fat are just darned stubborn! Now that those trouble areas are lifted and tightened, I truly feel so much better. Dr. Bernett really took care of me and was careful and caring all the way. Everything looks great, and I am feeling so much better !!!"- H.M. / Wellness / May 30, 2015
What to Consider
Females contemplating labiaplasty should consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon to perform this surgery. While many OB/GYNs have the ability to surgically remove any excess skin that is present in the labia, they are not specialized in the aesthetics of contouring the labia to the patient’s desired outcome. This is also to ensure that the latest cosmetic reshaping techniques are used to not only create a more aesthetically pleasing appearance, but to ensure nerve damage does not occur in the surgical process. A talented plastic surgeon with many years of experience will be able to provide the best results in keeping the natural color and shape of the labia creating a visual appeal that patient’s love with little to no scarring.
Labiaplasty Surgical Process
A device known as Iris Scissors is the most popular approach to labiaplasty. Iris Scissors is a technically advanced tool that is used to delicately and impressively contour the inside folds of the labia. During the surgery, an appealing “V” contoured segment is purposefully shaped to the vaginal lips, and excess skin is eliminated to reduce the size of the labia. Dissolvable sutures are used to quickly and safely close any incisions made during the process, and the surgeon intentionally works to reconstruct the vaginal lips to the patient’s desired outcome.
General anesthesia is used during this surgery, which is performed in an accredited surgical facility on an outpatient basis. On average, Labiaplasty takes between 1-2 hours to complete, although the exact time depends heavily on the severity of the patients case. Certain activities, such as sexual intercourse and the use of tampons, should be avoided for 4-6 weeks. Temporary numbness in the vaginal region directly after the procedure is considered normal. A labiaplasty affects the lips only and leaves the clitoris, the area of intense sensitivity, widely unaffected. This surgery can be life changing for a woman, making her feel confident, sexy and youthful once the healing period has concluded.
Labiaplasty is one cosmetic surgery that may be covered by some medical insurances due to the symptoms associated with the condition. Labiaplasty is very common and depending on the extent of surgical need, the procedure likely runs between $3,000-$5,000.
