I have a question about Reconstructive Surgery.

Question: Hello~ I am writing this morning because I need to find out some information. I was molested tramatically as a child for 13 years and what he did to me, came to the conclusion that I needed like a reconstructive surgery at UCLA of my anal and vagina. When you looked at it, it was one hole, so the doctor went at made it two. Well here we are 12 years after the surgery and I and very insecure about the outcome. I never really worried about it before, because I was married and my husband was with me through the whole process and the aftermath. I am now going through a divorce and this issue is causing a problem with me dating. I am very insecure with what everything looks and feels likes. The main problem seems to be the huge lump towards the back. Another huge concern and this is so embarrassing, but my anal hole is inside a deep pocket. This can also be a sanitary problem…..OMG so embarrassing. I think this is why I have not pressed the issue earlier cause of the embarrassment of everything. My question is I would like to know if it is possible to make me look normal down there like a woman should. I am almost 40 and just beginning to live a happy life after a miserable marriage. If you don’t do this kind of work, can you refer someone that might. They need to be good lol…..see the results from a doc I thought was going to be marvelous from the get go. Please get back to me, for I am hopefully looking to get this started right away.

Answer: hi,
thank you for your very sensitive question regarding your past trauma and reconstruction. unfortunately, two things: 1) the rules do not permit me to give direct medical advice to an individual. 2) this Web site is dedicated only to face and neck cosmetic and reconstructive surgery questions. you need to ask your question to a body plastic surgeon, an OB-GYN, or a colorectal surgeon. good luck in finding the right person to help you with your delicate situation.

One thought on “I have a question about Reconstructive Surgery.

  1. In order to be deductible, the coetmsic procedure and related expenses have to be “necessary to ameliorate a deformity arising from, or directly related to, a congenital abnormality, a personal injury resulting from trauma, or a disfiguring disease.” If expenses are not deductible under such provision, then amounts paid for insurance coverage for such expenses and other related expenses (laboratory tests, recovery procedures) are not deductible, and an employer’s reimbursement of such expenses under a health plan is not excludable from your income. In other words, if this surgery was necessary to correct the deformity directly related to congenital abnormality or physical injury, then all the expenses related to it are deductible. (For example, LASIK and radial keratomy are deductible).
