Clitoral Hood Reduction

Clitoral Hood Reduction procedure is most commonly done along with a Labiaplasty. Excess folds of the clitoral hood, or prepuce, can be reduced with a clitoral hood reduction. The extra folds can create a bulge that is exaggerated when the labia minora are reduced, and a clitoral hood reduction can improve the balance in appearance of the female genitalia.

As the labia minora “begin” superiorly, “flowing down” from one or more of the varying folds of epithelium making up the central, medial (lateral folds of the central hood), and lateral (preputial) folds of the “clitoral hood”, these hood holds are frequently a part of the “tissue protrusion” that is bothersome to the patient. Only occasionally are hood size reductions performed solo, without labia reduction.

 Clitoral Hood Reduction Surgery

As noted hood reduction is either continuous with the labia excision line, or separate, if the anatomic area of hood hypertrophy does not connect directly with the area of labia reduction. The excess tissue is marked according to the individual’s anatomy. There is a wide variation in the shape and extent of folds. In some patients the excision is performed as a “Y” extension off the Labiaplasty. Closure is usually done with absorbable sutures. This is very delicate tissue and requires careful surgical technique to avoid scarring and avoid taking too much skin. A Clitoral Hood Reduction is usually done at the time of a Labiaplasty under either local anesthesia with oral sedation or under general anesthesia.
