What is a Clitoral Hood Reduction?

A Clitoral Hood Reduction is a surgical procedure that reduces the size and length of the clitoral hood. The procedure may also be called a Hoodectomy. Women may seek a Hoodectomy if they experience discomfort from a large clitoral hood or are unhappy with the appearance of their genitalia.

A Hoodectomy reduces discomfort by trimming excess tissue. Dr. Nazarian’s technique of choice is the boomerang skin resection, which can be performed awake at the same time as a labiaplasty if needed. This allows for improved appearance and stimulation of the clitoris during sex. Altogether, patients see improved confidence, sexual health, and overall well-being.

A Clitoral Hood Reduction is entirely safe when completed by an experienced surgeon. With general or local anesthesia, the procedure provides minimal discomfort. Dr. Nazarian is very experienced in this procedure and usually performs it awake and pain free in minutes. Sometimes, patients opt to simultaneously receive a labiaplasty, a procedure that reduces the size of the labia minora. Receiving both procedures may improve the overall appearance of the genitalia.

How the Procedure Works

A Clitoral Hood Reduction is a relatively simple process. Patients who receive the procedure can go home the same day and should see a full recovery in just a few weeks. With just one office visit and a careful recovery period, patients can enjoy improved confidence and sexual health.

Before & Preparation:

  • Consult with your plastic surgeon to see what to expect for your specific case and determine if you are a good candidate.
  • Refrain from smoking or drinking alcohol for two weeks before the procedure.
  • Avoid eating or drinking anything eight hours before the procedure if using general anesthesia.
  • Plan a ride home so that you do not have to drive after the procedure.
  • Wear loose-fitting clothing that will not agitate the area.
  • Avoid exercising for 24 hours before the procedure.
  • Consult your practitioner about the medications you take and adjust your dosage if needed.

During the Procedure

  • A Clitoral Hood Reduction is an outpatient procedure that rarely takes more than 1-2 hours.
  • You will receive either local or general anesthesia.
  • Local anesthesia numbs only the target treatment area.
  • General anesthesia will sedate you for the whole procedure.
  • Your surgeon will trim excess skin from the clitoral hood without aggravating the nerves or tissue of your clitoris.
  • Once the process is complete, the surgeon will carefully stitch up the area.
  • You will be given around an hour to recover. Then you will be able to head home.
  • If you choose to receive a labiaplasty, your surgeon will perform the procedure before your Hoodectomy. Having both procedures done simultaneously will extend the length of the process and the recovery period.

Aftercare & Recovery

After a Clitoral Hood Reduction, pain, swelling, and discomfort are normal. However, ‌take the necessary steps to avoid agitating the area and improve your recovery time. These steps include:

  • Applying a cold pack to the area over your underwear in 20-minute intervals
  • Elevate the area by putting a pillow underneath your hips.
  • Carefully pat the genitalia dry after showers and using the restroom.
  • Wear loose-fitting clothes around the area.
  • Avoid sex and tampons for four to six weeks.
  • Take antibiotics or pain-relievers if recommended by your provider.
  • In some cases, Dr. Nazarian recommends taking up to a week off work and physical activity to allow the area to heal.
  • You should ‌see a reduction in swelling after about four to six weeks.

Side Effects & Risks

It is essential to locate an experienced surgeon for a Clitoral Hood Reduction. There is the risk that a surgeon removes too much tissue, called an over-resection, or not enough tissue, called an under-resection. In the case of an under-resection, you will need to repeat the procedure to remove additional tissue. However, there is no way to correct an over-resection. Other risks of a Clitoral Hood Reduction include:

  • Potential bleeding
  • Bruising of the area
  • Possibility of infection
  • Nerve damage

Similar & Related Procedures

  • Labiaplasty: A labiaplasty trims excess skin from your labia. Trimming the skin improves the symmetry of the appearance of the vagina. The labiaplasty does not directly impact sexual stimulation, unlike a Clitoral Hood Reduction.

A Clitoral Hood Reduction and labiaplasty are often conducted together to provide an even shape to the genitalia. Although, not all patients choose to have both procedures completed simultaneously, depending on their cosmetic goals.

Dr Sheila Nazarian Plastic Surgeon

Yes, a Clitoral Hood Reduction involves trimming excess tissue from a large clitoral hood to make it smaller.

Completely removing the clitoral hood will expose the clitoris. This makes the area more sensitive since there will be nothing shielding the clitoris from clothing and touch. An exposed clitoris can potentially cause extensive discomfort.

A large clitoral hood is most often a result of genetics, but it can also be caused by childbirth or trauma to the surrounding area.

Over time, the clitoral hood can close, but only in extreme cases. An extended period without stimulation can minimize blood flow to the area and cause the hood to close.

The complete removal of the clitoral hood is called a clitoral Hoodectomy, Clitoral Hoodoplasty, or Clitoral Unhooding. Trimming the skin of the clitoral hood is called a Clitoral Hood Reduction.

A Clitoral Hood Reduction is also called a clitoral hood revision. A Clitoral Hood Reduction will remove a portion of the tissue over the clitoris. The process will reduce the size of the clitoral hood and expose more of the clitoris.
