Clitoral Hood Reduction: What Is It and Is It Right for Me?
- Posted on: Sep 15 2019
When women are undergoing certain procedures including vaginal rejuvenation, they may be asked about the possibility of undergoing a clitoral hood reduction. This is a procedure that is common done alongside a labiaplasty for most women. During this surgical treatment, the excess folds of the clitoral hood, which covers the clitoris, is reduced to eliminate extra bulge and improve the balance of the female genitalia.
How is a clitoral hood reduction performed?
Our team provides clitoral hood reduction in our practice, and it is often performed under general anesthetics, oral sedation, local anesthesia, or a combination of these methods. The procedure itself is done by marking the excess tissue that needs to be removed and excising the extra folds to create better balance in appearance. As with any surgical procedure, there are risks including excessive bleeding and infection. When Harrison, NY area women follow their post-operative instructions, they can reduce these risks and enjoy faster healing and recovery.
Why would I consider clitoral hood reduction?
- A diagnosis of clitoral adhesions
- Heavy or large clitoral hood that hides clitoris and reduces sexual pleasure
- Excess tissue in the vaginal area
- Lack of self-confidence in the appearance of the vaginal area
