Norfolk, Virginia has fine dining, and Virginia Beach has great beaches. Norfolk, Virginia also has bad cosmetic surgeons. To me Norfolk, Virginia is a place that started my living nightmare, and a place where I was injured, and experimented on by a plastic surgeon name David A. Gilbert, MD, FRCS(C),FACS.
As far as I can tell Doctor Gilbert is the only one I found who has done this type of surgery using a gracillis muscle for a labia reconstruction surgery, hense this was an experiment.
My experience is so horrific that I spent the last three years of my life traumatized, and trying to mentally blocking out my injuries. Even now I still have hard time grasping to the thought that my legs and groin are disfigured from Doctor Gilbertís apparent experiment. This horrifying medical experiment has permanently destroyed both of my leg gracillis muscles, and my groin causing these areas to have extreme nerve damage. The nerve damage is causing chronic pain, and disfigured my legs, and groin as shown in the photos below. I can not find any doctor who has heard of using gracillis muscles for a labia reconstruction surgery, or would even do this to anyone. I now find myself at a loss in what to do to correct my injuries as I was told nothing can be done to reverse the damage. I went to this doctor for what I was told was a simple labia reconstruction surgery, but instead found myself scamed, disfigured, and now living with chronic pain.
On November 8, 2002 I had labia reconstruction surgery performed on me after receiving a solicitation letter written by David A. Gilbert, M.D. of Norfolk Virginia
The surgery was for the purpose to improve appearance, and correct a defect in my labia.
The surgery used gracillis muscle flaps for the purpose to build better labia bulk.
The surgery did not correct my problem, but instead created the following major problems.
1. Constant chronic pain in my legs and groin.
2. Large voids and deformities in my legs also my groin where the removed gracillis muscle was once located.
3. Two four-inch in length surgical scars on both legs.
One vertical scar in the back of my legs behind the knee joint, the other scar is located horizontally halfway between the groin and the knee cap. Both scars have painful nerve damage.
4. Distorted labia appearance with large voids in my labia as a result of the removed gracillis muscle.
5. Lack of normal fullness with large voids in both legs as a result of the removed gracillis muscles along with nerve damage.
6. Reduced lateral leg movement as a result of the removed gracillis muscles, and nerve damage.
7. Unable to have sex without pain as a result of the groin pressure pain from the nerve damage.
8. Can not run, and do any sports without risk of injury from the destroyed gracillis muscle.
9. Knee problems do to the lack of my gracillis muscles being removed as this muscle is used to support my knees.
10. Random leg and groin spasms, and reduced blood flow as a result of nerve damage, and scar tissue.
11. Painful disfigured legs, and groin.
12. Walking bull legged because of the removed gracillis muscle, and groin injury.
13. Can not wear a swimsuit, or shorts without showing my Disfigured legs, and groin.
14. Can not wear any tight clothing around my legs from the nerve damage.
15. Burning feeling in my legs, and feet from the extreme nerve damage.
16. Forced to take pain pills as to sleep, or to fuction.
17. Costly medical expenses from my injury.
18. Extreme emotional distress.
19. Detroyed my sleep, and Concentration because of the extreme painful nerve damage.
20. Random extreme shooting groin pains that will put you to your knees.
My constant pain, and disfigurements caused by Doctor Gilbertís apparent Medical negligence has reduced my quality of life.
I use to model, and now I canít even wear a pair of shorts, or a swimsuit without revealing these disfiguring scars.
Iím forced to take daily doses of pain medication as to help me cope with the constant pain.
During my four-day hospital visit after this horrifying surgery I had not even once been visited by Doctor Gilbert. After the surgery he required one office visit, and off you went.
I live out of state, and he did not require any additional office visits after the first. Prior to this surgery Doctor Gilbert led me to believe that this surgery was minor,and the muscle he will use was not needed and would not cause me any disfigurements, or reduction in leg movement.
The great promise to improve my labia appearance was false, and seems just a money making scam. I now have a distorted appearance, voids in my labia, and not to mention the painful voids in my legs.
I have good reason to feel I was experimented on, and that this surgery was performed without concern for my care just to earn a profit.
Dr. Gilbert's Solicitation letter to me for this surgery. Maybe I'm naive, but I feel I was misled about this surgery, and scamed. If I knew more about what a gracillis muscle was I would not have done this surgery. He turned a very small problem into a large disfiguring, and painful problem.
On August 2005 I gave Doctor Gilbert the opportunity to correct the problem he caused, and he wanted to do additional negligence
by removing my Thigh Muscles to fix the labia problem, and inject fat to fill in the voids in my legs. The other idea was to graft my upper and lower thigh muscles together, and inject fat into my groin.
"Another brain storm Gilbert Letter"
Upon questioning this procedure, and asking for medical records to get a second opinion he now refuses to correct his failed surgery, and did not provide me with any medical records, or photos. I finally received some of my medical records on March 31, 2006 after five requests starting October 7, 2005. However he did not provide me with the requested clear copies of my exam photo's as requested.
Example Surgery Photo
You can clearly see that this muscle is larger than a pencil as I was told.
This doctor used this muscle for a crazy labia reconstruction surgery destroying my legs, and causing painful injures to my groin. The nerve used to keep this muscle active, and alive was cut and never reattached an email was sent to me by this doctor proves this. An MRI, and EMG test also proves the nerve damage. The muscle is now shriveled scar tissue placing pressure on nerves, and blood supply.
Let this be a warning to all who may wish surgery by this physician. If I knew what I know now I would not have had this surgery.
I canít even wear a pair of shorts or a swimsuit without revealing these distorted groin scar lines, and disfiguring voids in my leg.
Thanks doctor for destroying my life, destroying my leg gracillis muscles, and groin.
I now would not even trust this doctor to mow my lawn.

Patents beware when having surgery from Dr. Gilbert. In my case this doctor decided to run and hide instead of correcting his surgical mistakes. Once he learned that the surgery had failed see you later patent, and lots of luck. It appears it was simple profit to him, and an experiment to learn a new procedure.
I finally received a small sum of my medical records on March 31, 2006 after five requests starting October 7, 2005, and finally received my requested exam photos after over a year, and many, many requests.
Sent four certified requests, and one by fax for records
Gilbert in trouble
My experience with Doctor Gilbert is a living nightmare. I never thought anyone could take away my good life, and health, but Doctor Gilbert did.
He has given me a life of disfigurement, and constant pain. The trip to Gilbertís butcher shop cost my insurance company $20,000. The future medical cost from this venture may exceed at the minimum 100 times this amount.
This Doctor reduced my ability to Roller Blade, Ski, Run, Bike, sit for any period of time, walk, sleep, hike, wear a swimsuit, and for sure Kick Box when he destroyed my graciilis muscles. This doctor destroyed my life in exchange he lined his pocket. He seems to not care, or is willing to help correct the injury he inflicked.
