Clitoral hood reduction is an cosmetic vaginal procedure that reduces the size and area of the clitoral hood in order to expose more of the clitoris itself. The goal of this procedure is to increase sexual pleasure as well as refine the aesthetic appearance of the vulva which increases a woman’s overall sexual health. Although a stand-alone procedure, it is often performed together with other procedures such as labiaplasty, the reduction of the labia majora or minora. Many of our patients report a high satisfaction rate from their clitoral hood reduction treatment due to an increase in confidence, sexual life and over well-being.
Since the area associated with the clitoris is such a highly sensitive area, we always recommend women who are considering this procedure do their homework when they searched for the right surgeon. Make sure the surgeon you select has performed hundreds, if not thousands, of this procedure since the clitoris is a very sensitive area. There are many nerve endings in the clitoris and an inexperienced surgeon may risk causing potential damage to the nerves. Also, picking a cosmetic gynecologist who has specialized training is ideal over a plastic surgeon who isn’t fully with the anatomy or an OB/GYN who doesn’t specialize in this procedure.
