iStock_000063998609_Large-595x400There are a range of procedures that focus strictly on the female genitalia.  From labiaplasty to vaginal rejuvenation and the like.  One lesser-discussed, yet popular procedure women are having is clitoral hood reduction.

Clitoral hood reduction is an elective procedure that serves to reduce the size and area of the clitoral hood to expose more of the clitoris itself.  The goal of this procedure is to increase sexual pleasure and refine the aesthetic appearance of the vulva, thus increasing a woman’s overall sexual health.  It is often performed in conjunction with other procedures such as labiaplasty (reduction of the labia majora or labia minora), but it can also be performed as a stand-alone procedure.  As one might guess, clitoral hood reduction has a high satisfaction rate and many women report an increase in confidence and overall well-being.

Since the area associated with the clitoris is such a highly sensitive area, we always recommend that women considering this procedure do their homework when searching for a surgeon.  Make sure you select a surgeon that has performed hundreds, if not thousands, of these procedures since there are so many nerve endings in the clitoris and you wouldn’t want to risk any potential damage that could be caused by an inexperienced surgeon.  To add to that, picking a cosmetic gynecologist who has specialized training is ideal over, say, a plastic surgeon who isn’t fully trained on vaginal, labial, or clitoral anatomy.

At our all-women Dallas practice, the fees for such a procedure can range from $3500 to $5000, depending on the involvement of a patient’s specific clitoral hood reduction.  These fees are for the procedure as a stand-alone procedure, but for added or combination procedures such as labiaplasty, we offer a 50% reduction in surgeon’s fees for secondary procedures.  The best way to determine the cost and which procedure(s) will accomplish your personal goals is to contact us for a complimentary consultation with Dr. Wesley Anne Brady.
