St. Valentine's Day Wishes: Perfume? Jewelry? Labiaplasty?

SOUTHFIELD, Mich., Feb. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- St. Valentines Day has always conjured up images of eager boyfriends and husbands rushing to buy that perfect gift that says, "I Love You." Over the decades, women have become better able to communicate more specific wish lists to their significant others rather than simply accepting generic and, sometimes, short lived gifts such as flowers.

Such was the case for Carl and Kristina of suburban Chicago. After twelve years of marriage and five very large children, sex for Kristina had become, physically and emotionally, a mind numbing experience. Her anatomy had changed and sensation had disappeared during sexual relations. The vulvar appearance no longer looked "trim and youthful," said Kristina. "I was so embarrassed; I no longer wanted him near me without the lights off." That's when the Chicago couple began their internet research. Kristina was going to get the ultimate gynecologic cosmetic makeover for St. Valentine's Day.

The couple discovered the website for the Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation Institute of Michigan and phone consulted with the director, board certified gynecologic surgeon Dr. Joseph Berenholz. When queried whether she had spoken with her gynecologist, Kristina explained that, "She said it was all a normal consequence of childbirth, not to worry and just keep doing my kegel exercises. I was so disappointed. I had been doing kegels for two years with no results!" The couple booked their flight for Michigan and arranged a date for surgery.

The consultation took place at the Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation Institute of Michigan. During the exam, Dr. Berenholz realized that Kristina was also suffering from stress incontinence, a condition where women lose urine when they laugh, sneeze, cough, jump or run. The surgery was scheduled for the following day. Kristina had a Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation to tighten her vagina. She also had a Laser Labiaplasty and a sling procedure to cure her incontinence. The procedure took two hours. The couple spent the night at a local hotel and then saw Dr. Berenholz in the morning. After being given final medical approval, the couple returned to Chicago happy and hopeful.

"I took a mirror and looked down below," said Kristina. "I was so surprised how wonderfully normal I looked. It was as though I had gone back in time prior to having my children!" Tears welled up in her eyes. "I was so ashamed to discuss my problem with nearly anyone. Dr. Berenholz just made it all so comfortable." Carl just smiled, happy to see the joy in Kristina's face.

Dr. Berenholz was the first Gynecologic surgeon in the Midwest to offer Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation. He trained in Beverly Hills with Dr. David Matlock, the originator of the technique and a regular appearing physician on "Dr. 90210." Asked why he thought patients come to him from the entire Midwest including Michigan, Dr. Berenholz simply replied, "People want experience. This is the most delicate part of the female anatomy and is tied in very closely to the female psyche." Dr. Berenholz is still amazed at how women tell him of the dismissive attitude of their Gynecologists. When asked if he found it humorous that a woman would ask for this type of surgery for St. Valentine's Day, Dr. Berenholz laughed and said, "It beats getting a box of chocolate."
