Clitoral Hood Reduction Surgery in NYC
What is clitoral hood reduction surgery?
Clitoral hood reduction surgery, which is sometimes referred to as clitoropexy or hoodectomy, is a surgical procedure that reduces the size of a woman’s clitoral hood, which is the skin that goes around and sometimes covers the clitoris. Similar to a labiaplasty, which reduces the size of the vaginal lips, a clitoral hood reduction can increase clitoral sensation and improve a woman’s sexual pleasure.
Because choosing to have a vaginal aesthetic procedure is a personal decision, our doctors at New York Center for Aesthetic Rejuvenation always offer confidential consultations to discuss your treatment options and any concerns or questions you may have about the procedure.
Why is clitoral hood reduction performed?
The main reason for undergoing clitoral hood reduction surgery is to improve sexual satisfaction. The function of the clitoris is to provide sexual pleasure, which is diminished when the clitoral hood is enlarged (called clitoral hypertrophy) or when other deformities exist near the clitoris. If you are suffering from any of the below problems involving an enlarged clitoral hood, you may be a good candidate for the procedure:
- Lowered sexual pleasure
- Decreased self-confidence due to look and feel of clitoral hood
- Difficulty reaching orgasm
- Difficulty becoming aroused
- Discomfort wearing tight clothing / bathing suit
What does clitoral hood reduction involve?
Clitoral hood reduction is a relatively simple procedure, during which the clitoral hood length is decreased. It is generally performed using a local anesthetic and is often done at the same time as a labiaplasty, as the conditions sometimes occur in conjunction with one another.
During the procedure, the hood surrounding the clitoris is reduced, without touching the clitoris or any nerve endings within the clitoris. Because of this precision, it is highly unlikely that any loss of sensation or nerve damage will occur due to a hoodectomy — although in rare cases, it may happen. Speak with our experienced cosmetic gynecologist prior to your procedure to discuss any potential risks.
Patients can generally continue with regular daily activities within a couple days after the surgery. The procedure may cause some discomfort and swelling in the days following surgery, which usually subside quickly.
