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.

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.

Just a note to say a big thank you for your professional expertise, your excellent care and your kindness towards me during my treatment.


Marilyn W.

Thank you so much for your surgery and your fantastic caring and positive attitude which makes so much difference for patients, me included!

I am writing to let you know that I was very pleased with the recent surgery to remove several moles on my face, neck and back. The whole process was carried out very efficiently.  The mole on my face has almost completely disappeared already.  The post-operative information was most helpful, although the leaflet I was given varied slightly from your verbal instructions. However, you accurately told me what to expect.  I have no hesitation in recommending your work to other people.  The on site staff were all friendly and helpful throughout.

I decided to have treatment with Mr Banwell due to recommendations from other healthcare professionals and knowledge of his surgical skills. My expectations were for reduced ptosis and fuller breasts, my expectations were exceeded. Mr Banwell provided me with honest and realistic expectations for my clinical outcome. I found it a very positive experience. I was originally very apprehensive about undertaking a cosmetic procedure and questioned the need for proceeding, but following my breast augmentation I have much more self confidence and I realise that I’d underestimated how much the ptosis had been getting to me. The outcome has been fantastic! Thank you.

I went to see Mr Banwell to get reassurance about the moles and blemishes which have been steadily growing since I was a young adult. 30 years ago we were not aware of the dangers of the sun and burning on holiday way an annual ritual. Thankfully we are all now aware that the sun damage can cause skin cancer and the changes in my moles mean I have a precautionary approach, particularly as older family members have had tumours removed. Paul knows exactly what he was looking for and studied each and every mole methodically. The two he highlighted for treatment were two of the least innocuous (in my opinion) which surprised me. Clearly to the trained eye they needed removal. I have since had an excision of one and due to have photo dynamic therapy treatment for the small red mark on my nose later this year. Without seeing Paul, this minor irritation would have been left and could possibly have created problems later in life. I advocate regular checks for anyone with moles and skin blemishes. The technology now is so impressive and it makes absolutely sense to take full advantage of Paul’s expertise.
