What Is Clitorial Hood Reduction?

The clitoral hood is the skin that is located just above the opening of the vagina, and its function is to protect the delicate clitoris and its surroundings. These folds of skin normally leave only a small portion of the clitoris exposed, but when this skin is excessive or too long and covers up the majority of the clitoris, it can cause issues. A surgical procedure can be completed to eliminate some of the excess skin and tissue and correct these issues.

What Does A Clitorial Hood Reduction Involve?

This procedure is normally done on an outpatient basis, allowing the patient to return home the same day. It can be done using local or general anesthesia and takes about an hour to complete.

It is often done together with a labiaplasty for optimal results, which is where the surgeon eliminates excess skin from the labia minora (the smaller lips outside the vagina) to enhance the way they look, eliminate irritation, and create better proportions.

During a clitoral hood reduction, the amount of skin around the clitoris and labia minora is reduced and then reshaped to be more in balance with the rest of the genitalia.

Why Do Women Choose To Have Clitorial Hood Reduction Surgery?

Excess skin or scar tissue that resulted from giving birth located around the opening to the vagina can cause irritation or embarrassment when wearing certain clothing or can even cause pain during sexual intercourse or participating in certain athletic activities. Reducing this extra tissue and contouring this area to be more symmetrical and proportionate can help ease discomfort and maximize sensitivity during sex while eliminating friction-induced irritation and pain.

The Benefits Of A Clitoral Hood Reduction

  • Provides a permanent solution to pain and/or embarrassment resulting from genital concerns;
  • Can heighten sexual satisfaction with enhanced clitorial sensitivity;
  • Can help with achieving orgasm;
  • Can eliminate pain experienced during sex and athletic activities;
  • Can be combined with a labiaplasty to ensure an aesthetically proportional appearance.

How Long Does Recovery Take?

Recovering from a clitorial hood reduction can take up to six weeks, or slightly longer if combined with a labiaplasty. Prescription and over-the-counter pain medications can be taken to help ease discomfort during the first few weeks. Icing the area several times a day using a thin barrier to prevent the ice from directly coming into contact with the skin will help with pain and swelling. Keeping your bottom elevated as much as possible for the first 72 hours can help mitigate swelling.

The surgeon will provide a list of aftercare instructions that are specific to your surgery but may include the following:

  • Utilize a peri bottle with warm water to help keep the area clean after using the toilet and carefully pat dry; avoid using a wiping motion;
  • Apply antibiotic ointment as directed by the surgeon;
  • Refrain from bathing or swimming for six weeks;
  • No sexual intercourse for six weeks;
  • Avoid the use of tampons for at least six weeks;
  • Refrain from shaving this area until it is well healed;
  • Wear loose-fitting garments for maximum comfort while recovering.

Who Should Perform My Clitoral Hood Reduction Surgery?

The female genitalia is a highly sensitive and complex network of nerves and requires special care and attention to detail. You should take care to choose a surgeon who possesses extensive training and expertise in performing this procedure, such as Dr. Angelina Postoev, a triple board-certified cosmetic surgeon with SurgiCare Arts & Aesthetics.

Is Clitoral Hood Reduction Covered By Insurance Plans?

This procedure is considered cosmetic and therefore unlikely to be covered under any type of medical insurance plan. SurgiCare Arts & Aesthetics is not part of an insurance network, and cosmetic surgery procedures are all self-pay. To assist our patients with their aesthetic transformations, we offer affordable payment options, which one of our team members will be happy to discuss with you during your consultation.

What Is The Cost Of A Clitoral Hood Reduction?

The cost of vaginal rejuvenation surgery, including the clitoral hood area, will vary depending on the degree of correction needed and which additional areas are involved. Combining clitoral hood reduction surgery with labiaplasty will influence the final cost of the surgery. The total cost of your specific procedure will be outlined for you in detail at your consultation, so you will understand the total cost of your surgery, and there will be no surprises.
