Project Description

Clitoral Hood Reduction

Some women find that there is too much extra tissue over the clitoris or along the sides of the clitoral hood and they don’t like the way it looks or feels. Others feel that the excess skin interferes with stimulation of the clitoris during sexual intimacy. Removing this excess skin via clitoral hood reduction surgery will change the appearance of this area. If desired, exposing more of the clitoris to stimulation during sexual activity may heighten pleasurable sensations.

The Treatment

The clitoris and the clitoral hood are very delicate area, and over the years Dr. Allan has developed techniques that result in a virtually painless procedure with minimal recovery time and minimal risks. The procedure is done using a local anaesthetic, which means you are able to drive to and from your appointment if you like. Clitoral hood reduction takes about an hour to perform and involves anaesthetizing the clitoral hood and trimming the excess tissue with a laser or radiofrequency device. Stitches are used to support the incision while it heals. This is a very safe procedure and risks are very minimal.

Recovery from Clitoral Hood Reduction Surgery

Following a clitoral hood reduction surgery, the area will be completely “frozen” for about four to six hours, which means you should not have any discomfort and you’ll have enough time to get comfortable at home. After the freezing wears off, many women find it uncomfortable enough for the next 24 hours to need strong pain medication. You will be sent home with two different kinds of medicines and an ice pack to manage your pain. We encourage you take the medications regularly for the first 24 hours to minimize your discomfort. After that, you may reduce the amount of medication as needed. Most women will take three to four days off in order to recover. You will need to significantly reduce your activity for the first two weeks, and wait a full six weeks before returning to full activities such as heavy workouts and sexual activity. The stitches are dissolving and will not require removal.

Results of a Clitoral Hood Reduction Procedure

Clitoral hood reduction surgery, sometimes referred to as clit hood reduction, is a very delicate procedure that should only be entrusted to a surgeon trained in vaginal surgery. Dr. Allan has performed hundreds of clitoral hood reduction surgeries over the past 20 years and is able to show you numerous before and after photos at your consultation.

If you would like to discuss this procedure with us please request an appointment. Both in-office and phone consultations are available. We will discuss clitoral hood reduction surgery and clitoropexy as well as all other options. At the Allan Centre, consultations are free and do not come with any obligation to proceed. We aim to provide the information you need in order to make the best, most informed decision about your body, your health and your well-being.

This clinic is amazing, from the first phone call to Mellissa getting me in within days, to the actual procedure itself. The nurses were incredible checking on me every minute and making sure that I was comfortable and had everything that I needed. They stayed beside me the entire procedure and made sure I was okay the entire time. The clinic was clean and organized, there was nothing out of place during the procedure. Dr. Allan was nothing short of amazing, he made sure everything was what i wanted before he started. I texted Dr. Allan many times during my recovery as i have a pre-existing condition. He responded by calling and following up with text messages within minutes, even on the weekends. He checked in daily with me after, he was calm, courteous and knowledgeable. The procedure itself was painless, completely numb feeling nothing, not even tugging. I would highly recommend this clinic and the staff.

She understood my concerns and insecurities, and made me feel super comfortable.

Dr. Allan made me feel very comfortable, and talked me through every option and step of the procedure. He’s extremely knowledgeable, compassionate, and talented. I highly recommend him.

I cannot say enough about the amazing treatment I received at the Allan Center! From my first contact with Melissa at the office, to booking my appointment, the surgery and in the aftercare; everything was exactly how I expected it to be. Absolutely first class and professional. My results were great. Let’s be honest, I did have discomfort and concerns afterwards; but Dr Allan made himself available to answer my questions and make me feel at ease. And as a result of the perioneoplasty, my sensation is greatly improved, and sex feels so much better!
