If you are unhappy with the appearance of your vulva, if excess skin covering your clitoris is reducing your confidence and affecting your sex life, then Clitoral Hood Reduction surgery can help.


If you are unhappy with the appearance of your vulva, if excess skin covering your clitoris is reducing your confidence and affecting your sex life, then Clitoral Hood Reduction surgery can help.


Clitoral Hood Reduction is surgery to remove excess skin from the hood of the clitoris, reducing its size and increasing clitoral sensation.

The experienced surgeons at Bella Vou provide bespoke Intimate Rejuvenation. Clitoral Hood Reduction can be a stand-alone procedure or combined with a Labia Minor Reduction to remove excess folds of skin, rejuvenate the vulva, and create a neat and balanced genital appearance.

You will have a temporary reduction in sensation due to the local anaesthetic. The surgeons do not damage the nerves to the clitoris during the surgery, but you will be bruised and swollen in this area, which can reduce your sensitivity.

The feeling usually returns to normal, but can sometimes take three to six months. Following surgery, more of the clitoris is exposed so that the clitoris can be more sensitive. Although it is not guaranteed, many women notice they can achieve increased intensity and frequency of orgasm.

At Bella Vou we provide various payment options meaning you can spread the cost and enjoy a confident outlook at a price you can afford.

Step 1. Free, no-obligation consultation

Bella Vou offers every client a free consultation with an expert. The consultation is an opportunity to discuss any concerns you have, the results you want to achieve, and whether surgery can help you reach those goals.

The expert aesthetic surgeon will sensitively evaluate the proportions and balance of the vulva, and the location of any excess skin or tissue. In careful consultation with you, they will plan the best treatment to achieve your goals. This could include Clitoral Hood Reduction, Labiaplasty, or Labia Majora Reduction to ensure the genitals appear balanced, natural, and attractive. Bella Vou will always give you an honest and impartial professional opinion. Mr Amir Nakhdjevani says:

‘At Bella Vou, we never pressurise people or try to sell procedures. It's always about giving an honest opinion and honest advice.’

Step 2. Meet your surgeon

You will be offered a further appointment with your surgeon before proceeding to surgery. This will give you a chance to find out more about the procedure, understand any risks and complications, and to ask any questions you may have.

Step 3. Preparation for Clitoral Hood Reduction

You’ll be given personal pre-operative advice to reduce your chance of bleeding or infection and help your healthy recovery.

Let your surgeon know if you’re on any medications. You may be asked to stop taking aspirin or anti-inflammatory tablets, which can increase the risk of bleeding and bruising. It's also important to stop smoking cigarettes and e-cigarettes before and after surgery because they can affect the healing process.

On the day of your surgery, you’ll be welcomed to Bella Vou, given a gown to wear and escorted to the state-of-the-art operating theatre. As you’ll be awake for your procedure, your surgeon will greet you, explain what will happen, and offer support throughout the operation.

Step 4. What happens during Clitoral Hood Reduction?

Clitoral Hood Reduction is carried out under local anaesthetic, as a day case. You will be placed in stirrups to facilitate the surgery. Before treatment, the consultant will apply a topical anaesthetic cream to ensure your comfort. They will then carefully inject local anaesthetic to make the area completely numb; you may feel movement, but the procedure will be pain-free.

The procedure will depend on your anatomy and the amount of skin to be removed. The surgeon will carefully mark the area to guide the surgery. They will excise extra tissue, reducing the folds to make the hood shorter and less prominent.

The surgeon will close the incisions using fine, absorbable sutures that don’t need to be removed.

Step 5. Recovery from Clitoral Hood Reduction

You will usually be able to go home on the day of the procedure. The staff at Bella Vou will monitor your recovery and provide support with every step of the way.

Some pain, swelling, and bruising are normal with any surgery. In this sensitive area, it can take up to ten days to settle. Bella Vou will provide antibiotics to protect against infection, and safe, effective pain relief to keep you comfortable.

After one week, the nurse and wound care specialist will check that you’re well and inspect your scars. You should avoid exercise and heavy lifting for two weeks. You will need to avoid intercourse and using tampons for at least four weeks to allow the wounds to heal. You can then gradually get back to normal activities. The Bella Vou team is always available if you have any questions or concerns at any time.
