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.

The care was excellent both pre and post operatively. During my stay at the hospital I knew exactly what to expect and when, which was most reassuring. The outcome is exactly as I’d have hoped. My eyes look less heavy and it’s as if they have more space to open! I’d never heard of the procedure before seeing Mr Banwell but I knew that something needed doing, and I’m absolutely delighted with the results.


Janet T.

From the welcome I got on my first visit to post op consultations, the team were very friendly. Mr Banwell is undoubtedly the most professional and caring surgeon I could wish for. I have felt completely confident in his expertise, and am thrilled with the results. I would not hesitate – and indeed have – recommended him.


Helen F.

Mr Banwell explained the details of my procedures in a professional and sensitive manner. He took the time to put me at ease and answer all my questions in a way that I could understand. Each step of my treatment from the initial consultation through to its conclusion was supported by professional who with their support enables me to have an extremely smooth journey through my procedures. For the first time in my adult life I am happy in my own skin. I would recommend Mr Banwell to anyone who has been thinking of cosmetic surgery in a heartbeat. Through his skill and understanding of the female body, he carries out his profession with the utmost care and consideration.


Susan G.

I am delighted!! Mr Banwell listened to what I wanted and now I have fuller breast that don’t look false!  I would highly recommend him and his team to everyone.  They are all very friendly and the care I received before, during and after was excellent and very professional. Many thanks to you all.


Gemma C.

I wanted to thank you for the work you have done on me. The results are really coming in to place and looking great!! I have recovered really well and it’s all down to your brilliant work.


Cheryl M.

From initial consultation right through to arrival for surgery and the subsequent aftercare, I have found the level of courtesy, understanding and professionalism of yourself and your team (both medical and administrative) to have been exemplary. So please accept my heartfelt thanks for accepting me as a patient and for your surgical expertise which has made such a positive difference in so many aspects of my life.
