Clitoral Hood Reduction


The clitoris is an anatomical structure located in the female genitalia, and is considered the most complex and primary erogenous zone. The clitoral head is a highly sensitive part of the clitoris that contains more than eight thousand sensory nerve endings. There are twice the number of nerve endings than in the penis, making the clitoris one of the most sensitive parts of the human body. While internal sexual, rhythmic contractions occur in the pelvic area, the clitoris is often overlooked as the main source of pleasure to women.

Similar to labia, clitoral hoods can be exceptionally large hindering access to the clitoris from optimal performance and preventing a woman from achieving sexual fulfillment. Large or thick hoods can cause rubbing against clothing that can result in redness, itching, or visible swelling through undergarments.

Clitoral hood reduction is a procedure that involves the reduction of the projection of the clitoral hood skin to make it appear less prominent. This intricate surgery will also strive to make the hood more proportionate to its vulva and labial counterparts, performed in combination with labiaplasty frequently. Clitoral hood reduction is a microsurgical procedure that results in minimal scarring once the healing is complete. 

Clitoral hood reduction is a surgical procedure that provides functional and aesthetic benefits to patients, with a high satisfaction rate and minimal risk of complications.
