A woman's clitoris is pointed outward towards the vaginal opening and increases in size when a woman is sexually aroused. Often times, the skin covering the clitoris may be too tight, which can lead to a disfigured shape and sexual dissatisfaction. In some cases, the clitoris can become completely covered by the fold of skin and cause extreme numbness or no feeling at all. In either instance, of different degrees, many women choose to have a Hoodectomy, also known as clitoridotomy or clitoral unhooding, to surgically remove the protective skin that surrounds the clitoris. This type of vaginal rejuvenation surgery allows the clitoris to prominently expand and swell during sexual intercourse, and look more pleasing to the eye.
DESCRIPTION OF TREATMENT
A Hoodectomy is typically performed under a local anesthetic as an outpatient procedure. A small incision is made through the skin of the clitoris to remove the outer skin that is covering the clitoris. The procedure is extremely delicate, as there are nerve endings attached to the clitoris that require adequate precision. It is important to choose a well qualified and board certified plastic surgeon who will greatly improve the chances of a safe and successful surgery.
A number of risks and complications are associated with a Hoodectomy, including but not limited to excessive bleeding, infection, nerve damage and numbness, scar tissue build up, skin discoloration and sexual dysfunction. Cosmetic surgery of the vagina is an important decision, and all side effects should be discussed with a board certified plastic surgeon and gynecologist to the fullest extent so that one can education themselves as much as possible.
The safety of a Hoodectomy relies heavily on a number of factors, including how seriously one follows all pre-operative and post-operative instruction, the experience level of the plastic surgeon and the patient's overall health and stability. Even if all of the above factors are aligned with one another, there is always a risk of anesthesia reaction, infection or complication after surgery. The first step when choosing any cosmetic enhancement surgery is to do the research and set realistic expectations and goals. A board certified and attentive plastic surgeon will help the decision making process and improve one's chances of a highly successful and safe surgery with optimal results.
The average Hoodectomy, or clitoral unhooding surgery can cost anywhere from $2,000 to $4,000 depending upon the extent of the procedure and location of the provider. Surgery costs to take into consideration include the anesthesia fee, surgeon's fee and medical facility or hospital fee.
