 About Dr. Edward Jacobson

Dr. Jacobson is a Board certified gynecologist, a Fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, and a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Gynecologists. He trained at the New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center where he was an attending physician until he moved his practice of vaginal surgery to Greenwich, Connecticut 25 years ago. He is one of only several physicians in the United States who has had extensive training in both advanced laser and high frequency radiosurgery techniques. Radiofrequency (no scalpel) surgery is far superior to laser surgery in its ability to dramatically reduce post-operative swelling and discomfort while creating outstanding cosmetic results. A comparison of both techniques can be found at http://www.cosmeticvaginasurgery.com/procedures.html#high_frequency. Dr. Jacobson has performed more than two thousand aesthetic procedures over the past eight years.

The Greenwich, CT office is located just outside of Manhattan and less than 45 minutes from New Haven. Surgeries are performed at the nearby Summer Street Surgery Center, a fully accredited and licensed outpatient facility in Stamford, CT or at The Greenwich Hospital.  If you are being seen at the Beverly Hills, California office surgeries are performed at the 90210 Surgery Center or at one of several fully accredited surgical facilities.

 

Patients coming from out of the area can have an extensive Skype or telephone consultation. The final consultation and examination is done prior to surgery. The following day twilight sleep together with regional anesthesia will provide long lasting post operative comfort. You will be able to leave the outpatient center one hour after surgery free of pain. Most patients can return to work within several days. A detailed description of restorative vaginal surgeries can be found on the website www.cosmeticvaginasurgery.com under Procedures.

The surgical fee for vaginoplasty is $4,900 while the cost of labiaplasty is $3,400. Hymenoplasty, $2,300; labia majora reduction, $3,400. All of the above charges do not include facility and anesthesia fees which are determined by operating time. In many instances we have been able to help patients obtain coverage from insurance companies. If your insurer allows you to go out-of-network we can determine before surgery if your carrier will reimburse you. We are affiliated with several cosmetic surgery loan companies which can arrange financing if needed.

If you are coming from out of town our concierge program can assist you with seamlessly arranging for transportation and hotel accommodations. In planning your surgery, please be assured we will assist you with transportation and lodging, answer all your inquiries promptly, and make ourselves available to you at all times. Of course, you can speak with me at any time. You will always feel you have a physician at the tip of your fingers. Privacy and discretion are an integral part of our practice.

Selecting a Surgeon

 

If you are a person who does her diligence to determine the best surgeon for vaginal rejuvenation, you will find yourself confronted with a multitude of websites claiming excellent results using different surgical techniques. So how do you go about choosing the proper surgeon with the best training, skills and experience? The information below should help you with your search.

First, understand vaginoplasty and labiaplasty are not part of any residency training program, so doctors learn these techniques only after they complete their formal studies. Second, and probably most important, there are no post graduate certification programs in this specialized area. Anyone who has attempted just one surgery can claim they are ‘experienced’. Third, there are many types of training programs available to gynecologists, urologists and plastic surgeons which result in a wide range of preparation.


So let’s talk about each of these critical factors.

Your surgeon’s training is the most important criteria in your decision making process. A physician’s medical school, residency program and Board certification are important and should be readily available on the website. However, you need to assess the post residency surgical training experience to really learn about your doctor. Some doctors are self taught. Others take a weekend lecture course with video presentations or group observation of live surgery. This is the least amount of initial exposure you would want your surgeon to have. Since there is no certification process you ideally want your surgeon to have undergone a preceptorship, that is, your doctor should have spent 20-40 hours one-on-one with an expert in the field, someone who is a pioneer in developing innovative techniques with lots of operating room and teaching experience. The instructor should offer a well designed intense academic program with live operations to transfer knowledge to the student physician. That includes hours of observed surgery and lots of time in the animal laboratory being taught instrumentation and learning how tissues respond to surgical materials and devices. Physicians who have completed these rigorous programs will let you know of their training. Seek out this information on their websites.

With over eight years experience I can tell you it takes scores of labiaplasties and vaginoplasties to learn how to approach the multitude of variations and achieve the desired result. The doctor who infrequently performs these procedures is not giving you the best care and should refer you to someone who is regularly in the operating room. Ask your surgeon what their training experience has been, who did their training, how many procedures they have done and what is their current volume of surgery.

You will quickly learn there are many techniques and instruments used for restorative vaginal surgery and it can be very confusing to determine which one is the best for you. The fact is they all have their advantages and disadvantages and what matters is how skillfully the surgeon uses them. As a general overview, surgeries can be performed with a scalpel or knife, a laser or more recently with high frequency radio surgery. Laser surgery receives the greatest publicity and has been very heavily marketed over the past decade but has the major drawback of generating lots of heat. This results in post operative swelling, discomfort and thermal damage, especially to delicate labia tissue. High frequency radio surgery uses a cool tip which generates negligible heat and results in an excellent cosmetic outcome. Always critically view the Before and After photographs on the surgeon’s website.

So far only the cutting phase of surgery has been addressed. The unique reconstructive techniques, the materials used and how the tissues are handled are probably just as important to the functional and cosmetic outcome as how the skin is cut. For example, regarding labiaplasty there is the so called wedge technique, in contrast to the vertical contouring approach, which I strongly favor. You can read about a description of both techniques at http://www.cosmeticvaginasurgery.com/labiaplasty.html

Finally, you need to consider location and cost. The surgery center should be licensed by the state, certified and accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgical Facilities (www.aaaasf.org). Surgeons who use these facilities display this information on their websites. You should not be reluctant to travel great distances to find the surgeon who is right for you. This is an important decision and you will want the very best result. Learn about your anesthesia options and what to expect after your surgery. Accessibility and availability of your surgeon and staff are paramount, especially if you have traveled a distance for your procedure.

Let’s not forget cost. The least expensive surgeon should never be your major decision making factor. In fact, when it comes to all restorative vaginal surgery it is always worth your while spending more to achieve the best outcome. Meticulous surgery takes time, and the overall cost of the surgery center and its staff, anesthesia and the surgeon is based upon time. This is not the procedure you want rushed. You are paying for an expert and a team who has devoted a lot of training, expense and effort to provide the best functional and cosmetic result. You don’t want to experience a less than desired outcome.
