About Your Consultation

Depending on your location and willingness or ability to travel frequently, you will have two options when it comes to your consultation: visiting Dr. Naoum in his clinic premises in Athens for an in-person consultation or use technology to connect with Dr. Naoum over the phone, via email and online discussion.

Scheduling your consultation at our clinic

If you are able to travel to Athens before your surgery for a consultation in our office, Dr. Naoum will meet with you to listen to and evaluate your concerns, review your options, and make personalized recommendations for achieving your goals. You will have the opportunity to ask questions about your procedure(s) of interest, review before and after photos of previous patients, and meet your surgical team.
Dr. Naoum or one of his patient care coordinators will also take this opportunity to speak with you about the surgical process and safety information related to your travels. You will be provided with a fee quote for your procedure, information about how to prepare for surgery, and prescriptions for medications if necessary.
Depending on your availability, you may choose to schedule your surgery soon after your consultation and stay in Athens leading up to your procedure. There is plenty to keep you entertained while you wait!

Consulting with Dr. Naoum Via Phone or Email

For those women who are unable to travel to Athens for an in-office consultation, our team will happily work with you over the phone or via email and online discussion. To get the most out of this type of consultation, there are a few things we will need from you.

Patient forms, including medical history

  • Description and photos of your areas of concern.
  • An hour of uninterrupted time.

Dr. Naoum will review all of your information prior to your consultation and will be ready to discuss your options and his recommendations during your conversation.

How to take your pre-consultation photos

To best provide you with personalized information and to ensure Dr. Naoum understands your concerns, it’s important that you provide us with pictures of your main areas of concerns. Here are some tips for getting your photos right:

  • Take a picture having the camera directly facing the intimate area.
  • Next, angle your body 45 degrees to the left and snap a picture.
  • Then, angle your body 45 degree to the right for your next picture.

For you, even if your area of concern is on intimate area of your body, now is not the time to be shy! You’ll need to disrobe and ensure you are taking unobstructed photos. Your privacy is our first priority and if you are uncomfortable sending photos with nudity through email, we can work with you to come up with another solution.

Scheduling & Paying for Surgery

Once your consultation is complete, you’ll review the provided price quote and information to decide if undergoing to the optimal procedure with dr.Naoum is a good fit for you. If you are ready to move forward, the next step is scheduling your surgery. One of our friendly staff will work with you to find the perfect surgery date that fits in with your travel plans and time off from work.

To secure your surgery date, you will be required to put down a deposit. The amount due will be reviewed with you during your consultation. Cash, major credit cards, and cashier’s check are all acceptable forms of payment.

Preparing for Your Surgery & Recovery

For your safety and success, advanced planning is a necessity of traveling for surgery. This is the reason why, Dr. Naoum and his team will work closely with you throughout the planning process. A thoughtful and well-planned surgical and recovery experience can help ensure the process is safe, comfortable, and stress-free for you. Preoperative tests are dependent upon a patient’s age, health, and the procedure being done. You will be informed of exactly what you will need to have done.

The specifics of your recovery will depend on your chosen procedure, overall health, and personal healing ability, though some swelling, bruising, and discomfort should be expected. We will speak with you about proper aftercare and will prescribe the appropriate medications to help keep you comfortable.

Safety & Precautions

In the days or weeks leading up to your surgery, it is important to follow certain pre-surgery guidelines. You will be provided with specific instructions, but here are a few standard precautions to take prior to your surgery:

  • If you are a smoker, it is also imperative to avoid nicotine for at least a few weeks before and after your procedure.
  • Cease taking vitamin supplements for around 10 days before and after your surgery.
  • Avoid supplements, foods, and drinks that slow blood clotting, such as aspirin or green tea.
  • Discuss any supplements or medications you are currently taking, including dosages, with Dr. Naoum.
  • It is critical that you openly communicate with Dr. Naoum about your health, habits, and lifestyle to ensure a safe experience.


After your procedure, we will take every precaution to ensure your comfort. Soreness is to be expected after your procedure, and Dr. Naoum will prescribe oral pain medication to manage your discomfort.

If possible, we recommend that you travel with a friend or loved one, particularly if your surgery requires general anesthesia. You will need transportation back to your hotel, in addition to a bit of extra care the first evening while the effects of anesthesia wear off. We will provide you with detailed instructions for your procedure when you are discharged.

Planning Your Stay

Once you’ve scheduled your surgery, you will need to make travel arrangements and prepare for your time off work. During your consultation, Dr. Naoum will discuss your specific recovery timeline with you, but here is a general idea of what to expect with some of our most popular procedures:

We recommend a two to four day stay for the following procedures:

  • G shot
  • Vagitense

This timeline has you arriving at least two days prior to your surgery and departing at least two days after your surgery.

We recommend an eight to ten day stay for the following procedures:

  • Labia Minora
  • Labia Majora
  • Mommy Makeover

This timeline has you arriving at least two days prior to your surgery and departing at least one day after a non-invasive treatment or three days after your surgery.
