About Clitoral Hood Reduction

All females have external genitalia called the vulva, the pleasure component of which is the clitoris. Clitoris is a part of the labia minora. As the clitoris lies outside, it is very vulnerable to injury and so is normally shielded by skin folds. Such a shield is known as a clitoral hood. Some females are embarrassed and irritated to have large clitoral hoods while some are unable to have proper clitoral sensations. Such problems can be resolved by clitoral hood reduction surgery in Hyderabad performed by expert and experienced cosmetic gynaecologist Dr. Maalavika.

It even addresses swelling, unevenness, or air settled over the clitoral region. It is a kind of plastic or aesthetic surgery that makes the clitoris look smoother and more appealing.

Procedure Overview:

Surgical techniques:

Clitoral hood reduction treatment in Hyderabad at Eternelle Aesthetics is either carried out under local anaesthesia or intravenous sedation in an office-based surgical suite or an operating room setting. Sometimes, the anaesthesiologist may provide general anaesthesia to the patient to ensure a comfortable surgical procedure. The type of anaesthesia that is safe for the patient is determined by a certified anaesthesiologist based on the surgery being done and the age and health status of the patient.

In general, the clitoral hood reduction procedure in Hyderabad involves:

  1. Giving anaesthesia
  2. Careful measurement of the protrusive tissues overlying the clitoris
  3. Removal of the excessive skin and tissues and reduction of the clitoral hood through a horizontal incision made in the clitoral hood
  4. Closing of the remaining tissues and skin by multiple layering of dissolvable stitches.

The surgery usually lasts for about an hour.  

The steps involved may vary for different surgical techniques. These techniques vary based on the type of incision:

  • Longitudinal resection- This is usually performed by lateral excision of simple mucosa on either side of the clitoris body. It is preferred for the treatment of mild to moderate excess of the clitoral hood.
  • Horseshoe resection- This is meant for the reduction of large longitudinal excess of the clitoral hood or horizontal excess. It is done by extending the upper aspects of longitudinal resection in a horseshoe-shaped manner.
  • Central wedge resection- This technique involves the removal of the central wedge or V from the most protuberant region of each labia minora.

  • Abnormal vaginal bleeding
  • Inflammation and infection leading to non-proportional clitoral hood, round wood edge, wound deformation/disruption, or scarring
  • Unsatisfactory results
  • Anaesthesia-related risks
  • Necrosis of tissues

Recovery and AfterCare

In the recovery period, the patients can initially expect to see minor swelling and bruising as well as feel mild general discomfort that resolves in a couple of days. To get relief from swelling, the patients can use ice packs. Sensation returns after the swelling subsides. The patients must take proper rest the same day after the surgery and may resume work after 3-5 days, depending upon their activity level and the extent of their surgery. The surgeon also recommends the patients avoid getting engaged in any strenuous activities and sexual intercourse for about a month. Until full recovery, the patients should even refrain from saunas, soaking tubs, hot tubs, and waxing or shaving of their pubic area. Physical or emotional straining must be avoided.

It is very important to keep the operated area infection-free. Thus, the patients are advised to practise good hygiene habits and keep their genitals clean. For the first week, the patients must wear a sanitary napkin to soak vaginal discharges.

Frequently Asked Questions
