Clitoral Hood Reduction
An enlarged clitoris or clitoral hood can impact sexual enjoyment and the appearance of the female genitals. The size and prominence of the clitoris can be impacted by many factors, including congenital conditions and aging. Some women are born with a larger clitoris or an overabundant clitoral hood, and others may notice enlargement with age. At Los Angeles Plastic Surgery, Dr. John Anastasatos offers clitoral reduction surgery at our medical facility in Beverly Hills.
Dr Anastasatos has performed a clitoral reduction operation many times for his female patients. In some cases, the clitoris and the clitoral hood enlarged with age and the women were self-conscious of the change. For other patients, they were born with a clitoris that was very large and projects outward. It makes many women who have this condition very self-conscious of their vaginal area, both with their sexual partner and when wearing certain clothing items, especially a bikini or swimsuit.
Benefits of Clitoropexy
The clitoral reduction, or clitoropexy, can reduce the size and prominence of the clitoral hood and even the clitoris shaft. The goal is to reduce the protrusion while retaining the stimulating nerves that impact sexual pleasure. The procedure usually lasts about an hour, and results are permanent, reshaping and resizing the clitoris and hood for a more aesthetic appearance.
Women have reported an increase in the sensitivity of the clitoris after clitoropexy. The recovery time is within a few days, with minimal discomfort during the healing process. Return to sexual activity may be as soon as two weeks, depending on the patient.
