Clitoral Hood Reduction Surgery
The clitoral hood covers and protects the highly sensitive clitoris. Given that the tip of the clitoris contains thousands of nerve endings, the clitoral hood is important to prevent friction throughout the day.
Some women have excess tissue in the clitoral hood. This can make the clitoral area look uneven or enlarged, making some women feel self-conscious in intimate settings as a result. Excess tissue in the clitoral hood can also decrease clitoral stimulation, making it more difficult to reach orgasm.
Clitoral hood reduction is a procedure that can resolve the issues caused by excess tissue in the clitoral hood. This straightforward procedure can improve the appearance of the clitoral area and boost sensation for greater sexual satisfaction.
Clitoral hood reduction is a very precise surgical procedure that’s typically done on an outpatient basis or in the office under local anesthesia. During this procedure, the clitoris and surrounding nerves are left completely untouched. Only the excess lateral tissue is affected, and it’s carefully sculpted away to achieve the desired result.
If labiaplasty is performed and the patient has excess tissue in the clitoral hood, the results of labiaplasty can make the clitoral hood look bunched up. In this case, labiaplasty and clitoral hood reduction may both need to be performed for the best possible results. Dr. Hayes at the Visionary Centre for Women will determine whether one is needed to achieve your desired results.
