Clitoral hood reduction

Content Written By: Gary Alter, MD

If there is enlargement or extra folds of the clitoral hood during central wedge labial reduction, the outside excision on each side is often curved up to remove the sides of the hood. Excess clitoral hood folds can also be excised with a crescent excision. However, a clitoral hood with severe protrusion, width, and bulkiness may require more extensive reduction. The clitoris can be repositioned closer to the pubic bone, and the soft tissue and skin of the clitoral hood can be reduced significantly (clitoropexy with clitoral hood reduction).
