What is Clitoral surgery?
Clitoral surgery is usually done in combination with other cosmetic gynecologic surgery such Labiaplasty, Vaginoplasty and perineoplasty. Clitoral hood reduction or lift procedure is used to further expose the clitoris and allows higher level of sensitivity in this area.
The clitoral hood is the small flap of skin at the point where the inner labia meet above the external female genitalia. The clitoral hood surrounds and protects the sensitive tip of the clitoris. The clitoris is the main pleasure center in female sexuality and has thousands of nerve endings. Clitorises vary in size but are usually around the size of a pea. Only the tip is visible, but the shaft has two parts that extend down both sides of the vagina, by as much as 5 inches.
