Reduction of the clitoris hood
Clitoral hood reduction, also called clitoroplasty, is a form of female genital modification. This is a surgical procedure aimed at reducing the size of a woman's clitoral hood.
Clitoral hood reduction or clitoroplasty is a cosmetic plastic surgery technique that removes extra skin folds at the front of the clitoral hood. It is one of many vaginal medical and surgical operations available, and it is frequently combined with labia minora reduction, to achieve a more balanced appearance of female genitalia.
Procedure in Istanbul Turkey
Clitoral hood reduction surgery can be performed under local anesthesia and deep sedation or spinal anesthesia at one of our best partner clinics in Istanbul, Turkey.
The average duration of clitoral hood reduction is about 30 minutes. Rapidly resorbing sutures are generally used (15-20 days).
Postoperative pain is minimal. Indeed, it is easily controlled with anti-inflammatories and recovery is very fast.
Sexual activity can be resumed on average 30 days after surgery.
The results of a clitoroplasty
During cosmetic vaginal surgery, a labioplasty involves reshaping the labia minora so that they do not hang below the level of the labia majora. On this, excess creases may occur. Through a clitoral hood reduction procedure, plastic surgeons can diminish excess folds. Generally, a reduction of the clitoral hood is associated with a labioplasty to have a well-balanced appearance of the genitals and also to avoid exaggerated bulges following a labioplasty.
The techniques used to achieve this reduction vary depending on the surgeon and the shape and size of the woman's clitoral hood. Most women who have had this surgery experience less clitoral hood discomfort and report improved self-esteem.
The potential risks of the procedure
The risks of clitoral hood reduction surgery include:
- A decrease and stimulation of sensation in and around the clitoris
- Hypertrophic scars and infections
- Unsatisfactory results requiring further surgery.
A woman's clitoris is a sensitive part of the body with nerves that can be accidentally damaged, causing decreased sensation or a significant and unpleasant increase in sensation. As with most surgeries, the possibility of scarring also exists, especially if the incision sites are not properly cared for after surgery. Also, sometimes the surgeon does not operate to the patient's satisfaction, such as leaving too much skin or an uneven amount of skin, and another surgery may be needed to correct this. An experienced surgeon will review a patient's risks before clitoroplasty surgery.

Clitoridoplasty can have an impact on clitoral sensitivity, although the results of this surgery vary from one person to another.
In fact, the clitoris is a highly innervated area, and the amount of tissue removed can influence sensitivity (increase or decrease). As a result, it can affect sexual function and the ability to experience orgasm during sexual intercourse.
No, clitoral hood reduction plastic surgery involves making small incisions that are not painful, although if the patient experiences discomfort, pain-relieving medication will be prescribed.
