Labia surgery, aka labia reduction and labiaplasty, is a highly
specialized surgical procedure to reduce the size of the labia minora. Dr.
Oscar A. Aguirre has personally learned from the pioneers in this field and implemented
his own refined techniques in the ever evolving field of cosmetic gynecology
and labia surgery. We will provide answers to your many questions regarding all
aspects of labia surgery.
Dr. Oscar A. Aguirre, a surgeon who specializes in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive
surgery, has the distinct necessary experience and knowledge, to tackle the
most difficult vaginal and vulvar surgeries. Unlike the standard plastic
surgeon or general gynecologist, Dr. Aguirre, as an Urogynecologist, is
specially trained in complex pelvic floor reconstruction. His passion for
vaginal and vulvar surgery along with his determination to continually
improve his techniques and skills led him to pursue additional training in
cosmetic gynecology. He trained under Dr. Matlock, of Beverly Hills, and Dr.
Alinsod, of Laguna Beach. After becoming proficient in
performing Laser Reduction Labiaplasty and Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation as per
the techniques taught by Dr. Matlock, he then learned how to perform these
procedures in the office and was introduced to the Ellman Surgitron RF device
