The appearance and function of the clitoris can be largely affected by the tissue of the clitoral hood, which in some patients is redundant and in need of minor alteration. An enlarged clitoral hood along with a enlarged labia majora may sometimes be visible through clothing and cause embarrassment for the patient. The clitoral hood can be enlarged for many reasons, including genetics, injury, trauma, or childbirth. Clitoral hood reduction is a surgical procedure that reshapes the tissue in order to reduce the length and projection of an overly large clitoral hood.
Depending on why the clitoral hood is protruding, Dr. Lee will make incisions to remove the excess tissue and skin. Dissolvable sutures are then placed to neatly close the incisions. Clitoral hood reduction is often performed in tandem with labiaplasty, a procedure to reduce the size of an enlarged labia. You will received a detailed aftercare plan from Dr. Lee following surgery, as well as follow up visits to ensure your recovery is on track.
