Clitoral Hood Reduction – Clitoral Hoodectomy
Genetics, testosterone, and oestrogen can significantly change the way the clitoris and the clitoral areas appear. Some of the significant changes include excess skin on both sides of the clitoris, making it look larger or asymmetrical. In such cases, a surgical procedure known as clitoral hood reduction, or Clitoral Hoodectomy, is required to get rid of all the excess skin and tissue.
The goal of the procedure is to improve the aesthetic appearance of the clitoris by getting rid of the extra folds of skin on it. Just to note, during the procedure, the nerves of the clitoris are never touched, nor is the clitoris itself mutilated.
Some of the causes of a hooded clitoris are:
- Hormonal changes
- Or Congenital problems among others
Are you a Candidate for Clitoral Hood Reduction?
For you to be considered a good candidate for a clitoral Hoodectomy, you must fit a certain criterion. This includes:
- Being unhappy with the look of your clitoris
- Asymmetry of the clitoris
- Having realistic expectations
- Excess skin on the clitoris
- Being in overall good physical and mental health
- Decreased stimulation on the clitoris
- Not having any genital diseases
- Reduced ability to orgasm due to the excess skin
What to Expect After Clitoral Hood Reduction Surgery?
Clitoral hood reduction is done under local anesthesia and can last for up to two hours depending on the amount of skin to be excised. After the procedure, you can expect:
- Immediately after the procedure, the patient will have some discomfort, some degree of redness, and swelling on the area. This will persist for 5-7 days after which it will begin to subsidize.
- Although clitoral hood reduction is a surgical procedure, you don’t need to stay overnight. You can go home immediately after the surgery.
