Labiaplasty Training Courses
The Labiaplasty and Vaginoplasty Training Institute of America™ (LaVaTI™)
Informally founded in 2010 with its first training and formally trademarked in 2015, LaVaTI™ is a labiaplasty training program that provides gynecologic, plastic and cosmetic surgeons with an opportunity to upgrade both their skills and understanding of female genital plastic and cosmetic procedures. The program also provides support for trainees in their own practice environment, and proctoring options for both trainees and institutions.
Dr. Goodman is among a small number of highly experienced super-specialists in female genital plastic/cosmetic surgery who believe that only through the education and upgrading of surgeons’ skills is it possible to prevent the increasing number of deformities resulting from the surgical misadventures of poorly prepared and poorly trained surgeons. These physicians too often end up “in over their heads” while attempting to satisfy patient requests for labial and/or clitoral hood size reduction and sexually-related vaginal tightening operations.
A formal labiaplasty and vaginal tightening training program is available on-site at Dr. Goodman’s Davis, CA facility. (Click here for prospectus.) Proctorship may be coupled with training and is available as a separate option. Proctoring may be personal, on-site or by tele-proctoring via a secure audio-visual link. Call Dr. Goodman’s office at (530) 753-2787 for further details.
**Beginning in July, 2017, the training format will change, with formal didactic 2-day trainings including preparation, marketing, staff training, office set-up, patient counselling and retention, invasive vs. non-invasive procedures, procedure selection and performance, anesthesia, etc. These trainings will be held every 3 months, alternating between facilities at Atlanta’s Hartsfield International Airport and Sacramento, Ca International Airport. Attendees will have access to full live surgery and patient interview podcasts, and are invited at their convenience to come to Dr. Goodman’s Davis, CA surgical facility to personally observe surgical procedures. (see link to course prospectus).
***Through an exclusive arrangement with LPS.com and VPS.com, Dr. Goodman’s trainings INCLUDE FREE PLACEMENT on Labiaplastysurgeon.com and Vaginoplastysurgeon.com, two of the world’s premier select placement/marketing sites for trained genital plastic surgeons.
