Many women are self-conscious about the appearance of their intimate area. Enlarged labia, fatty deposits around the mons pubis, or excess skin around the clitoris can significantly impact well-being. Changes in the intimate region, often perceived as undesirable, are usually due to genetic predispositions. However, the appearance of the intimate area is frequently influenced by hormonal changes or pregnancy and childbirth.

Affected women often struggle with intense feelings of shame, which can lead to psychological issues. Surgical correction of the intimate area can provide significant relief and help restore the physical and emotional balance of patients.

Expert tip from Dr. med. Naja-Norina Pluto:

The clitoris is composed of erectile tissue and only a small part is externally visible. Being rich in nerve endings, the clitoris is highly sensitive and is primarily responsible for sexual pleasure and orgasm in women. The skin located above the delicate clitoris provides optimal protection for this crucial organ. Women who suffer from excessive skin on the sides or above the clitoris can find relief through a clitoral hood reduction.

In most cases, clitoral hood reduction or clitoral hood reduction surgery is combined with correction of the inner labia. When performed by an expert in plastic surgery, the sensitivity of the clitoris remains fully intact after the surgical procedure.

1. What is a Clitoral Hood Reduction?

Clitoral hood reduction refers to the surgical correction of the clitoral prepuce when there is excess skin on the sides or above the clitoris. It falls under the category of aesthetic intimate surgery.

Clitoral hood reduction is often combined with other intimate surgical procedures. For instance, enlarged inner labia can be reduced as part of a labiaplasty, or a prominent mons pubis can be reduced through liposuction (mons pubis correction). An autologous fat transfer to the outer labia results in augmentation with the body's own tissue. If skin tightening in the intimate area is desired, a minimally invasive radiofrequency treatment (Accutite) may be the suitable method.

2. Who is suitable for a Clitoral Hood Reduction?

Surgical intervention on the clitoral hood is suitable for all women who are concerned about the appearance of their clitoral hood or the functional changes associated with it. If pain occurs during certain sports activities such as cycling or horseback riding, when wearing tight-fitting trousers, or during sexual intercourse, a clitoral hood reduction is advisable not only for psychological but also for physical reasons.

At the Plastic Surgery in Medienhafen Düsseldorf, you can schedule an appointment for a personal consultation at any time, during which we can answer your questions and naturally cater to your individual requirements. Simply contact us to discuss further details.

3. How is the Clitoral Hood Reduction procedure performed?

The procedure can be performed either under local anesthesia or with additional twilight sedation. The exact location of the incisions will be explained to you beforehand. After local anesthesia, the excess skin is carefully removed. Subsequently, the incision sites are closed with fine, multilayered sutures that dissolve over time. The clitoris itself remains untouched during the procedure. Only the excess skin surrounding the clitoris is reduced.

4. What should be considered after the procedure?

You can leave the clinic, accompanied, just a few hours after the procedure. However, it is crucial that you take it easy in the days following the surgery and get plenty of rest. It is best to wear loose, comfortable clothing.

Optimal wound healing is promoted by applying a nourishing ointment to a sanitary pad and maintaining careful toilet hygiene.

5. What are the risks associated with Clitoral Hood Reduction?

Every surgical procedure carries risks. However, the clitoral hood reduction is considered a very low-risk procedure when performed by an experienced plastic surgeon. In rare cases, postoperative bleeding, wound infection, or asymmetry may occur.

You should expect slight bruising, discoloration, and swelling in the surgical area in the days following the procedure. Mild swelling might persist for several weeks after surgery but should be completely gone within six weeks at the latest. Scars from a clitoral hood reduction usually heal very well, leaving only fine lines that are hardly visible to the naked eye after a few weeks.

Painkillers typically are no longer needed after 1 week.

6. How long will I be incapacitated after the procedure?

After the procedure, you should avoid working for about one week and refrain from sports and sexual activity for at least 5 weeks. By eight weeks at the latest, you should be fully operational and can resume your daily routine as usual.
