Clitoral Hood Reduction

Reduction of the clitoral hood is often performed in conjunction with a labiaplasty, in order to create a more balanced and harmonious look. The folds of the clitoral hood can often create an imbalance in the aesthetics of the genital area if not addressed during a labiaplasty. 

Generally, a clitoral hood reduction is not performed on its own. It is not always needed during a labiaplasty, but is a very common secondary procedure for purely aesthetic reasons. 

If you are interested in a labiaplasty with clitoral hood reduction, call New Look New Life today at 646-559-2854 to schedule your consultation with our board-certified cosmetic gynecologist, Dr. Rita Shats. 

What Is Clitoral Hood Reduction?

If your clitoral hood has excess folds, it can create a bulge and look disproportionate to the labia. A clitoral hood reduction is a surgical procedure that can be added onto a labiaplasty in order to create a more balanced aesthetic. 

During a clitoral hood reduction, excess tissue is carefully trimmed in order to bring the clitoral hood in line with the appearance of the labia minora. Each procedure will be different, since each individual patient has differently shaped folds. 

Absorbable stitches are usually used, so that there’s no need to come back in to have stitches removed. Recovery will depend on the extent and complexity of the procedures you had done.

Candidates for Clitoral Hood Reduction

You may be a candidate for a clitoral hood reduction if you are already having a labiaplasty and are concerned about your clitoral hood looking disproportionate to your labia. In addition, the best candidates for clitoral hood reduction and labiaplasty are:

  • In overall good health
  • Non-smokers

Labiaplasty and clitoral hood reduction can help to create a more aesthetically pleasing genital area. They can also help to reduce discomfort during exercise or sex that can be caused by overly large labia, and can help you to feel more confident during intimacy. 

Recovery After Clitoral Hood Reduction

Recovery after a labiaplasty and clitoral hood reduction typically involves some swelling, itching, and discomfort. We’ll give you prescription medication to help with any pain and discomfort, and we’ll give you advice for dealing with the swelling and itching as well. 

Swelling usually starts to subside after around 3 days or so, while itching may last for around a week. If itching persists, call us, because it could be a sign of infection. 

Patients are usually able to resume exercise after 2 to 3 weeks, and can resume sex after 6 to 8 weeks. Take it easy during the first few weeks of recovery and don’t try to push yourself too hard; your body needs time to rest and heal.
