Clitoral Hood Reduction Surgery
If a large clitoral hood is impeding your sexual gratification, it may be time to consider clitoral hood reduction surgery. This outpatient procedure sculpts away excess tissue to enhance sensation during intercourse.
There are a few factors to consider when deciding whether or not clitoral hood reduction surgery is right for you. This article will discuss the procedure and the benefits that it provides to help you make your decision.
What’s Involved in Clitoral Hood Reduction Surgery?
In this surgery, the extra lateral tissue (also known as prepuce) in the clitoral hood is removed. This is a very precise procedure; neither the clitoris nor the surrounding nerves are touched during the surgery.
Clitoral hood reduction is often performed along with labiaplasty, which is a procedure to sculpt the labia. When a labiaplasty is performed, excess clitoral hood tissue can look bunched up, making clitoral hood reduction important to achieve a natural appearance.
The Benefits of Clitoral Hood Reduction Surgery
Clitoral hood reduction surgery might be the right step for you if you’re looking to gain the following benefits:
- Enhanced clitoral stimulation
The main benefit of clitoral hood reduction is greater stimulation. Without excess prepuce blocking the clitoris, women experience greater sensation along with stronger and more frequent orgasms.
- Aesthetic benefits
Excess tissue can diminish the appearance of the clitoral area. Clitoral hood reduction sculpts this tissue for a smoother, rejuvenated appearance. This can be especially beneficial for women who notice excess clitoral hood tissue showing through tight clothing.
For women who have had a labiaplasty and did not undergo a clitoral hood reduction at the same time, either because the surgeon did not perform them, or because they elected not to have it done, will now notice all of the excess skin around the clitoral area.
- Comfort during intercourse
During intercourse, pressure on excess clitoral hood tissue can cause discomfort and even pain. The clitoral hood reduction can improve comfort in intimate settings for women struggling with excess prepuce.
