Clitoral Hood Surgery

Some patients are sometimes unhappy with the appearance of he clitoral area, and in particular, the clitoral hood. A harmony and balance between the labial area and the clitoral area is sometimes lacking and thus some patients are keen to improve this.

A lateral clitoral hoodectomy may therefore be performed to redress this balance and remove excess skin

It should be noted that the actual size of the clitoral body cannot be altered and it is only the redundancy of the overlying skin that can be addressed.

Depending on individual anatomy, this may be peformed in isolation or in combination with labial reduction surgery.

BRAS & GARMENTS

Mr Banwell will discuss with you his thoughts on the best treatment plan for your clitoral skin area. A lateral clitoral hoodectomy removes skin from the lateral aspect of the clitoral area. It does not change the size of the clitoral body per se.

Reduction of skin from around the lateral aspect of the clitoris. Can help improve the balance between the clitoral and labial areas.

The surgery can take anything up to 1.5 hours depending on the complexity and severity of the problem.

The recovery is quite straight forward but this will vary from patient to patient and whether or not you have surgery in the clitoral area alone or in combination with a labiaplasty. Mr Banwell recommends you lay flat for 48 hours to help the swelling settleYou will be able to shower the day after leaving hospital after which you can pat the area dry with a towel and then use a hair-dryer on a warm setting to ensure everything is completely dry. You will normally be able to return to work after 1 week or so depending upon how you feel.

In the first week following surgery you should take things very easy, preventing any mishaps. The following week you will find you can do much more and may be ready to return to work after only a few days. In isolation this is a very small procedure but swelling and wound problems can still occur. You should avoid lifting and carrying for a week following surgery and strenuous exercise/physical activity should be avoided also for a week or so. You can drive when you feel safe to perform an emergency stop otherwise you insurance company may invalidate your insurance.

The operation has a high success rate and patients are grateful once more for a more harmonious appearance and reduction of the skin around the clitoris.

Unfortunately complications can occur following any surgery and patients need to be fully aware of this. Mr Banwell does his utmost to minimise the complication rate and likes to practise in a safe manner. The commonest complications are bleeding, haematoma formation and the need to return to theatre, as well as infection, numbness, alteration in sensation, clitoral damage, contour irregularity, asymmetry in the healing and the final result and dissatisfaction. Please note that pre-existing anatomy and size of the clitoral body may mean that surgery may not be able to meet your expectations.

A perfect blemish free outcome!

I had my brachioplasty in May and the surgery was very successful. The cosmetic appearance was quickly noticeable, with no complications arising from the procedure. I would certainly recommend Mr Paul Banwell and his team to all my friends, as they were extremely helpful and friendly.


Diana H.

After deciding to go down the surgery route I contact Mr Banwell’s team and was dealt with quickly and efficiently but most of all everyone was so friendly and helpful which put me at ease. The care from start to finish and still on-going was 110% and everyone who I dealt with was fantastic. Mr Banwell was always professional and friendly and put me at ease from the very beginning. I am so pleased with my results and putting myself in Mr Banwell’s care was the best thing I could have done. It has completely changed my life and I can’t thank you all enough. I have already recommended you to my aunty! Thanks again.


Ruth G.

During the time I have been in the care of Paul and the team I have been treated extremely well and very professionally, I could not have asked for better care. Paul was extremely caring and considerate throughout this time and has put me at ease during any procedures that I have had carried out. I trust his judgement completely and recommended Paul to a close family member who had a similar problem.


Frances W.

Procedure was quick, pain fee and I was made to feel at ease. I would highly recommend Mr Banwell, he provided an honest opinion of the result and all the options. I barely have a scar to speak of! Great result.


Claire H.

I was very happy with the care during the surgery and the team were friendly and efficient.  I was very happy with the outcome of the surgery and I would recommend Mr Banwell to others.
