Dr Berenholz, surgeon, lecturer

“Dear Dr. Berenholz,
I want to thank you for changing my life with the LVR surgery you performed on me.
As you know, I was hesitant and researched many doctors before committing to you. From the very first to the last visit I always felt my health was of utmost concern in your office. Your staff is very professional and caring. As you know, most women who finally make it to your office have already been to their doctors complaining of all the things only a doctor like you can fix. How sad it is that most doctors dismiss the concerns of their patients as “normal”. Thank you for explaining, in detail, what you could and could not fix for me.

Women who have undergone LVR are in a sorority of sorts, hard to explain but once you have the surgery you know it was worth it. You are truly a talented man and I thank you.”

Patient Stories:

K.C. from MichiganMary G was a 33 year old woman from the greater Detroit area in Michigan. She had one vaginal birth and one cesarean section in the past and came to the office complaining about vaginal relaxation loss of sensation during sex, as well as enlarged labia majora, which caused a “camel toe appearance“ when she wore tight clothing. She also complained of elongated and enlarged labia minora. This caused bulging in tight fitted clothing and made her self conscious during sex. She had vaginal rejuvenation, vaginal tightening surgery, along with reduction surgery of the labia majora, as well as the labia minora. Two months later, she was able to take a spin class as well as resume her normal exercise habits. She had much better sensation during sex, and was extremely pleased with her outcome. The labia reduction surgery allowed her to no longer be self-conscious during intimacy. Mary had interviewed several plastic surgeons prior to coming to Dr. Berenholz for her vaginal rejuvenation surgery and labia reduction surgery, but both surgeons reviews had reported several botched labiaplastiess in the past. She knew Dr. Berenholz was the first cosmetic gynecologist in Michigan and decided to trust him with her cosmetic gynecologic surgery.
