See What West County Plastic Surgeons Patients Have to Say
Dr. Tenenbaum performed Viveve® on me a few months ago. I didn't know what to expect. I've suffered with bladder incontinence for years. Dr. Tenenbaum was amazing. She was professional in what could have been a very uncomfortable situation. She was informative throughout the procedure, patient when I a needed a break, and gentle as well. The results were immediate for me, which is not at all what I was expecting! I typically had an "accident" on a daily basis. I couldn't brush my teeth without an accident. Since the procedure, my "accidents" have been minimal. The bonus was that intercourse has been more enjoyable as I am "tighter," making my husband and me both happy! Thank you so much Dr. Tenenbaum!
I have received treatments with West County Plastic Surgeons over the past seven years and am a loyal client. I became aware of Viveve® while at the office for a VI peel with Jen (amazing). I was able to be seen for a consult that day even though I didn't have an appointment for this. The provider was so professional, and it was so easy to talk to her about issues I was experiencing that I wouldn't even talk to my best friend about. I was so comfortable with her. She asked me a series of questions and determined I would be a good candidate for Viveve®. I was experiencing sexual dysfunction, and she informed me that this can also help urinary incontinence, but that I would only need the treatment for sexual dysfunction. Women are embarrassed to discuss sexual dysfunction and, like me, just accept that after children and as we age, it becomes much harder to reach orgasm. My husband had become very attentive to my need for time and stimulation, but this became frustrating to me and even him. He was concerned he was not doing something right. This definitely effected our sex life. Also, as I have gotten into my 40s, I started to experience dryness that I had never had a problem with. My husband felt less adequate in satisfying me, and I wanted to also please him as this also became more difficult. Over the past year, intercourse had become uncomfortable and at times painful. These are things I have not even shared with my husband but hope by discussing them, other women will realize they are not alone.
After my consult, the front desk was great and was able to schedule me within a week, working around my busy schedule. She was very upfront with me that results would not be immediate. However, around four weeks after the treatment, I noticed that I was not having issues with dryness and that intercourse was not uncomfortable anymore. Around eight weeks, my husband stated he could tell a difference and that I was "tighter." I am now four months out from the procedure. It has renewed our sex life. Knowing what good sex was, then having that diminish, was extremely frustrating. I can not explain how amazing it is to look forward to having sex again, and the connection has renewed my relationship with my husband. I hope more women realize there are solutions for our sexual dysfunction. There are so many commercials for men but nothing for women.
About five or six weeks after the treatment, I started noticing results. My vaginal dryness is now a thing of the past.
I have an increased desire for sex, increased sensation, and sexual satisfaction. Completely worth it!
