Clitora Hood Reduction Houston
Clitoral hood reduction in Houston, also known as hoodectomy, removes extra tissue surrounding the clitoris to more effectively expose the clitoris and enhance the vulva’s appearance. Hoodectomy is used to remove extra tissue or a lengthy clitoral hood that alters the clitoris’s form and function.
Clitoral hood reduction is a cosmetic procedure that removes the excess skin or folds covering the clitoris that otherwise cause a bulge and insecurity. Clitoral hood reduction can be done simultaneously with labiaplasty using local anesthesia. The incision is made to be aesthetically pleasing and absorbable sutures are used. Postoperative care is equivocal to labiaplasty.
Why Undergo Clitoral Hood Reduction?
The fold of skin around the clitoris is known as the clitoral hood. It has a crucial function: It protects the clitoris from being touched continually. It also keeps the area moist. The length of the clitoral hood can be influenced by genetics, trauma, and childbirth.
Clitoral hood reduction is performed for more than just aesthetic reasons. This procedure is advised if the clitoral hood becomes excessively large or lengthy, making it difficult to retract and potentially affecting women’s intimacy.
Is Clitoral Hood Reduction Right for Me?
Those who desire to improve sensation during intercourse, clitoral stimulation, and the vulva’s cosmetic appearance should consider clitoral hood reduction. Clients who are physically uncomfortable during intercourse or are less likely to have orgasms may benefit from the treatment.
Before undergoing the surgery, the patient should be in good health, have a stable weight, and have realistic expectations.
What to Expect During Clitoral Hood Reduction
Our skilled medical specialist will delicately trim the skin around the clitoris, ensuring that the nerves and tissue of the clitoris itself remain undamaged, during clitoral hood reduction. This outpatient surgery is typically conducted using local anesthetic. Women can keep–and even improve–their sexual sensation as a result of this.
The clitoral hood reduction surgery may take up to 30 minutes on its own, but it is commonly done as part of a labiaplasty. The patient can return home an hour later if they have urinated and are comfortable.
Clitoral Hood Reduction Aftercare
After clitoral hood reduction, patients are advised to refrain from sexual activity for four to six weeks. Keeping the surgical area clean is important. Antibiotics and antibacterial ointment are sometimes prescribed by our medical specialist to prevent infection during recovery. Patients are advised to avoid strenuous activities, public pools, and saunas for four weeks.
