Time takes a toll on our bodies, including on the genitals. Some women take the step of having a labiaplasty to correct these issues. Sadly, many women are left with a bad outcome, with too much or too little tissue removed, uneven lips, or a vaginal area that appears deformed. These botched surgeries can be surgically corrected, but only a highly-skilled surgeon should perform the corrective surgery.


The labia are the most prominent and visible portion of a woman’s genitals, having the area appear pleasing and “normal” (although every woman is different) is important. Women go to surgeons to correct a range of aesthetic or medical problems, including the following:

  • Reduce the size of the inner labia
  • Reduce the size of the outer labia
  • Reduce both areas
  • To resolve uneven, overlarge labia
  • Create a more youthful appearance to the labia
  • Reduce visibility
  • Address irritation and multiple infections
  • Hygienic concerns
  • Resolve urine stream diversion issues

After surgery is performed, the patient could be shocked – or even horrified – to see the results of the surgery. In these cases, Dr. Placik is known for being particularly skilled in correcting labiaplasty surgeries that have gone terribly wrong.


If you had labiaplasty that was botched, and left you with a look that is distressing, it is important that the surgeon who fixes the problem is highly-skilled and respected as a leader in this type of surgery. Dr. Placik is a highly-trained, Board Certified plastic surgeon, and a speaker and author on the subject of female genital plastic surgery. Much of his practice is devoted to these surgeries, and he is renowned leader in the field. If your labiaplasty surgery left you with a result that was uneven, appears deformed, or other problem, you want a surgeon with this level of skill and knowledge to help.


Unfortunately, certain surgeons may be less than familiar with performing a labiaplasty, and failed to create a natural, pleasing result — or worse. In these cases, the surgical errors can be corrected. The first step is a consultation to determine what needs to be done to bring the genital area back to a natural, pleasing appearance, both balanced, even, and normal.


Dr. Placik has skills and knowledge far above and beyond the ordinary in female genital surgery, as well the processes that are effective in correcting botched genital surgeries. As a researcher, author and speaker on female genital surgery, he is a leader in the field and known throughout the country. He understands that these are very personal issues, and you can be confident that you will be treated with the utmost sensitivity, kindness, compassion, and discretion. The first step is to speak with us to find out more about what can be done to get this very important personal physical issue resolved, and the result you were seeking when you underwent surgery the first time.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19 View Update Virtual Consultation


Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update

Updated March 24th, 2020

With businesses all around us closing by either mandate or voluntarily you may be wondering how long we will continue to operate, or even why we are still open at this point.

After serious consideration and in line with the recommendations of our State and Centers for Disease Control (CDC), we are limiting the practice until April 7th.

We are diligently monitoring conditions and recommendations from professional organizations such as the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and understand that the situation is ever-changing and may alter our plans at any point in the future

As physicians, we are cognizant of protecting our own patient population most at risk and the need to conserve our own limited resources. Actions have already been taken to postpone or cancel appointments and surgeries for patients who are best served staying home to limit potential exposure. We have also canceled or rescheduled appointments for services that are not immediately necessary in many cases.

Effective immediately the following will occur:

  • All procedures and in-person consultations will be limited until April 7th. This may be revised in the following week.
  • The office will be (not fully) staffed, and we will see our urgent post-surgical follow-ups.
  • We are instituting Virtual Consultations for all potential patients.
  • Many surgeries are rescheduled and some of the ones that are committed will occur on a per case basis.
  • No patient will ever have any financial recourse for our fees for rescheduling their procedures.

We are constantly updating our services and staffing according to the local and national recommendations and will always place your health and well-being as our top priority.

We continue to exercise all the latest recommendations that are handed down by the CDC. These include:

Staff have been fully informed and trained to understand the disease process and its modes of transmission.

  • All staff, vendors and ancillary personnel are being asked to refrain from coming to this office if they have any signs or symptoms of a cold or an upper respiratory tract infection.
  • Every patient is also being asked to refrain from coming to the office if they have any symptoms.
  • We are asking our patients about any pertinent travel history.
  • Hand-washing continues to be the most important mode of prevention. Although it is a part of what we constantly do, now we are doing so with heightened vigilance and attention.
  • We have instituted a “no handshakes no hug” policy for now.
  • We have asked all vendors that any unnecessary meetings are canceled until further notice.
  • Any exit and entrance from our office are followed by a protocol of changing shoes, scrubs and sanitization.
  • As we are an (NO accredited) medical facility, we are constantly sanitizing all surfaces. We have now vamped that up and our routine, multiple times a day, wiping down all surfaces, desks, door handles, keyboards and restroom facilities. (We have assigned a person that does so on a constant basis.)

As previous communications have shared, procedures and protocols have been put in place (and continue to evolve) to protect our employees in the workplace. However, no one can guarantee the absolute protection from infection or potential exposure despite recommended precautions being taken.

The virus can be transmitted before an infected person starts exhibiting symptoms. It is possible for a person to be infected and also not experience symptoms. We are doing everything possible to prevent people exposed or exhibiting symptoms from access to our facilities. Even with all of our precautions, exposure to patients with the COVID-19 virus can happen. When we become aware of any potential exposure, our response is immediate and actions are taken to protect everyone directly involved.

Experts are predicting that 40% of the Chicagoland population will be infected within the next month. Current information demonstrates that for 97% of the people infected the symptoms will be mild or flu-like. 3-5% of patients will require hospital care, and the mortality rate is less than 2%.

Risk of exposure will occur at every touchpoint of our daily lives outside of our home-- including gas stations, grocery stores, and medical facilities.

Although Covid-19 is a serious issue, we strongly believe that it will pass and hopefully make our infrastructure and our ability to deal with pandemics in this Country even better than it currently is. We are monitoring this situation on a real-time basis and will not sit back until we know that we have done everything possible to avoid unnecessary exposure.
