Clitoral hood reduction is a surgical procedure that involves reshaping the skin above the clitoris to improve sensitivity, reduce chafing and enhance orgasms.
Many women choose to undergo a clitoral hood reduction along with a labiaplasty to improve the aesthetic balance between the labia and clitoral hood.
What to expect from surgery
Clitoral hood reduction is generally done under general anesthesia and can be performed at the same time as a labiaplasty. The excess clitoral hood tissue is incised and a desired amount of tissue is removed to produce easier clitoral stimulation.
Clitoral hood reduction recovery time
We generally recommend that patients take a week off of work to heal and relax after the surgery. Pain medication may be recommended for a few days following the procedure.
