The clitoris is a highly sensitive part of the female genitals that impacts both the appearance and sexual pleasure of the vaginal area. The small protrusion is covered with the clitoral hood, tissue that is similar to the foreskin on the male penis. In some cases, the clitoris can be hidden too far under the clitoral hood or be too pronounced, affecting sexual pleasure and the genital appearance. Dr. John Anastasatos is a highly experienced plastic surgeon at Los Angeles Plastic Surgery that offers clitoroplasty to change the size, appearance and function of the clitoris.
The formation of the clitoris can be impacted by genetics or factors that occur invitro, or in the uterus. Some fetuses can be exposed to higher than normal amounts of male hormones or androgens, which can impact the formation of the genitals. One condition that can impact the female genitals is congenital adrenal hyperplasia. This can cause a few different changes in the vagina area, including increasing the size of the clitoris.

Clitoroplasty is a type of plastic surgery that can alter the size and shape of the clitoris and the clitoral hood to improve the form and function. Clitoroplasty can also be used in congenital adrenal hyperplasia treatment. Dr. Anastasatos specializes in this intricate procedure, offering the following types of clitoroplasty:
