Labiaplasty & Clitoral Hood Reduction in Glendale & West Los Angeles
Just like any other part of the body such as breasts, nose, or buttocks, the appearance of the labia is also the prerogative of the women. Women not happy with the appearance of the labia, the length, the color or the shape, may choose to alter the appearance safely.
The length and the shape of the labia may be due to aging, genetic, hormonal, trauma, childbirth or other external causes. The color may be also hormonal, genetic, or as a result of skin disorders.
Like any cosmetic procedure, the surgical aspect of the treatment is usually just as challenging as identifying the patient’s needs and expectations.
Dr. Tahery’s techniques are safe, detailed, and require little downtime.
