Clitoral hood reduction
Clitoral hood reduction is an elective procedure that serves to reduce the size and area of the clitoral hood to expose more of the clitoris itself. The goal of this procedure is to increase sexual pleasure and refine the aesthetic appearance of the vulva, thus increasing a woman’s overall sexual health.
Since the area associated with the clitoris is such a highly sensitive area, we always recommend that women considering this procedure do their homework when searching for a surgeon since there are so many nerve endings in the clitoris and you wouldn’t want to risk any potential damage that could be caused by an inexperienced surgeon.

The solitary function of the clitoris is to induce sexual pleasure. As the female equivalent to a man’s penis, the clitoris is covered by a hood (which is similar to a man’s foreskin). Occasionally this hood or tissue covering can be large, redundant (also called clitoral hypertrophy) and cause inability to achieve stimulation to the clitoris. The redundant tissue can also be uncomfortable while wearing a bathing suit or tight fitting clothing.
Women who need a clitoral hood reduction generally complain of lack of ability for stimulation of their clitoris. The hood covers the clitoris to the extent that adequate stimulation is difficult. Dr Nasser will help you evaluate and treat these intimate their concerns so you can determine whether this is what you want as well as other genital cosmetic procedures.
The procedure to reduce the clitoral hood is a simple where the hood is surgically incised and the excess skin tissue is removed to allow for improved stimulation of the clitoris.
Normally the procedure is performed using general anaesthetic or twilight sedation at an accredited day surgery. After the procedure, most women complain of mild to moderate pain which can be treated adequately with pain medication.
Clitoral hood hypertrophy is often seen in women who also have labial hypertrophy, or excess labia minora where their tissue hangs down below their vulva. In these circumstances, reduction of the tissue covering the clitoris can be performed at the same time of labiaplasty if desired. The nerves that supply the clitoris are not involved in these procedures, and therefore there is no decrease in sensation or orgasm experienced.
In most cases, Clitoral Hood Reduction takes less than an hour and if combined with labiaplasty can take up to 2 hours.
Most patients are able to return to normal activities within 36 hours, many in less time. In every instance, you will feel no pain during the procedure.
The concept of exposing more surface area of the clitoris to enable more stimulation is correct. With a covered clitoris, due to excess tissue of the prepuce, there is a limited amount of surface area that can be stimulated. When this excess tissue is removed, it is possible to expose more of the highly innervated surface of the clitoral node, allowing more sensation and helping the woman achieve a faster, stronger climax.
It is advised that there be no sexual activity for several weeks, to permit the area to properly heal. The results, however, are immediate
