Clitoral Hood Reduction

Having labiaplasty or clitoral hood reduction is a very personal decision for many woman. Dr. Calvert offers confidential consultations to discuss patient concerns to help determine which vaginal procedure would most benefit their personal individual needs.

Women who are considering clitoral hood reduction surgery in Beverly Hills may be seeking relief from pain, while others have cosmetic concerns or wish to improve their sexual satisfaction.

The clitoral hood is the tissue that covers and surrounds the clitoris, the highly sensitive and arousing erectile tissue of the female. Enlargement of the clitoral hood can sometimes negatively impact sexual pleasure during sexual intercourse. In addition to that, some women with an enlarged clitoral hood may also desire an improved cosmetic appearance.

What is a clitoral hood reduction?

The clitoral hood, also known as the clitoral prepuce, is a fold of skin that surrounds and protects the glans of the clitoris. It is the female equivalent of the foreskin in male genitalia. The clitoral hood, like the foreskin, serves as erogenous tissue in sexual enjoyment. Sometimes a woman can have an excessively large prepuce causing physical and emotional effects. Clitoral hood reduction is a surgical procedure for reducing the size and the area of the clitoral hood in order to further expose the clitoral glans.

You may want a clitoral hood reduction if you:

  • Have an excessively large prepuce
  • Experience an unsightly bulge
  • Have reduced sexual pleasure
