Clitoral hood reduction is an operation done to reduce the size of the clitoral hood by removal of excess prepuce- the skin folds covering the clitoris. This surgery has other names including clitoral hoodectomy, clitoral hoodoplasty, and clitoral unhooding. Mostly, it is done in adjunct with a labiaplasty.
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.

The potential side effects, risks, and complications of Clitoral hood reduction include:
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.
The recovery period for a clitoral hood reduction without labiaplasty is shorter than with labiaplasty. It lasts for only a few weeks. Usually, swelling subsides within 6 weeks but a puffy appearance persists for up to a month after treatment.
A sole removal of the clitoral hood cannot help improve sensitivity. Instead, it can result in more exposure to highly delicate parts of the clitoral region. The chances are that a large clitoris may help increase sexual excitement in women.
