Although the clitoral hood reduction serves import functions of protection of the clitoris and lubrication it can sometimes be over sized and unsightly. For this reason this procedure surgically reduces the size and shape of the clitoral hood to improve its appearance and functionality. This is also known as a hoodectomy or clitoropexy.
Your clitoris contains over 15,000 nerve endings. Imagine all of those nerve endings constantly rubbing against the fabric of your clothing all day and night — ouch! The clitoral hood exists to protect this sensitive tissue from excessive stimulation and external irritants.
Glands in your clitoral hood also produce a lubricant called sebum. This helps your hood move smoothly over the glans and shaft of your clitoris. Female genital cosmetic surgery, when performed by a competent and certified Aesthetic Gynaecologist, has low complication rates and high patient satisfaction.
Almost anyone can get a clitoral hood reduction but Dr Leneque Lindeque will help you determine if this is the best procedure for you.
