What Is a Clitoral Hood Reduction?

Some women have a long clitoral hood, which interferes with the normal form and function of their clitoris. With a clitoral hood reduction, your cosmetic surgeon will remove just the excess skin of the clitoral hood to improve comfort, appearance, and sensation.

What Are the Benefits of a Clitoral Hood Reduction?

Also known as a hoodectomy, this procedure helps reduce the discomfort and lack of sensation caused by having a clitoral hood that is longer or thicker than normal. The clitoris is the most sensitive spot on the female body, and its purpose is to increase sexual pleasure.

You will learn all the details of your own procedure, and how it might be part of a mommy makeover or other vaginal rejuvenation procedure, during your initial consultations with Dr. Do and our team. In general, you should expect the following with a clitoral hood reduction surgery:

  • This is an outpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia or light sedation, so plan for a safe ride home.
  • The procedure takes about 30 minutes to complete but is often included with other procedures like a labiaplasty to reduce the size of the labia.
  • You will be asleep during the procedure, where the skin around the clitoris will be delicately trimmed to the right size and shape.
  • When you are fully awake, comfortable, and able to urinate, you will be able to return home.

How Long Is the Clitoral Hood Reduction Recovery Time?

You should expect some swelling, numbness, and discomfort in the area immediately after your procedure. You may be prescribed antibiotics and/or antibacterial ointment to use after surgery.

You may be on full bedrest the first day. Many women can return to light work 2 days after their procedure and light exercise or activities after 3-4 days.

You should be ready for normal exercise and activity levels after 2 weeks, but you will need to wait 4-6 weeks to resume sexual activity. You should also avoid strenuous activities, hot tubs, public pools, and saunas for this time period.

How Much Is a Clitoral Hood Reduction in Houston?
