Hoodectomy title image


Clitoris Surgery, also known as clitoral hoodectomy, is a clitoral reconstructive surgical procedure performed to reduce the excess folds of the clitoral hood or prepuce which is a tissue covering the clitoris. Sometimes, because of genetics, trauma or childbirth, the clitoral hood can be too large or long like a penis, or does not retract during intercourse. This procedure is most commonly performed together with labiaplasty.

What is Clitoris Aesthetics?

In addition to protecting and maintaining body health and improving and preventing health problems, there may be a need to improve the body anatomically and cosmetically and regulate it when necessary. One of the most important parts of human physiology is sexual health. For a good and satisfying sexual life, possible health problems must be eliminated.


The clitoris is one of the indispensable elements of sexuality in women. It is possible to increase the person’s quality of life if an anatomical and cosmetic intervention is made to the clitoris area. However, external genital organs, such as the face, are also different from each other, and this difference should not be considered a mistake, but simply a situation that requires that each operation be planned individually.


The clitoris, one of the important parts of the reproductive system, is among the most intense nerve stimulation points of the body. There are many sensory nerve endings at the tip of the clitoris. It has an inverted V-shaped structure located just above the entrance to the vulva and vagina, which form the outer part of the reproductive system. The clitoris is also a close neighbor of the urethra, which is the last part of the urinary tract. The tissue folds of the vulva and skin cover the clitoris and are called the clitoral hood. The clitoris, where sexual pleasure is felt most intensely during sexual intercourse, is an anatomical region with extremely important functions in terms of female sexual satisfaction and orgasm stimulation.


The reproductive system may undergo changes during the growth and development process in the womb and during childhood. Just as each body has its own anatomical features, the reproductive system tissues and clitoris appearance are also unique to each individual. As long as the person’s quality of life is good, external genital appearance is also considered beautiful. However, in some cases, clitoris tissue may cause dissatisfaction of the person both aesthetically and functionally due to the influence of surrounding anatomical structures such as vulva, vaginal lips and skin tissues.


Depending on different factors, the size of the clitoris may increase abnormally or a disorder in the structure of the reproductive organs may develop. In such cases, the functional properties of the reproductive system may be disrupted and aesthetic problems may occur. Within the scope of clitoris aesthetics, the clitoris and surrounding tissues are arranged in an anatomically appropriate manner, and reproductive and sexual functions are preserved or corrected. Cosmetically satisfactory results can be achieved by applying the interventional procedures needed specifically for the individual.

Will There Be Any Scars After Clitoris Surgery?

Generally, little or no scar remains after clitoris aesthetic surgery. However, whether there will be a scar after clitoris surgery may vary depending on the type of surgery and the experience of the doctor.


As part of the Hudoplasty procedure, excess skin tissue over the clitoris is removed. Since this procedure is performed in an area with a low risk of scarring and aesthetic stitches are used, there is little or no scar left after Hudoplasty.


More complex procedures such as clitoris enlargement or reduction are more likely to leave scars. Since the skin on the clitoris already has a folded appearance and the incision is made as scar-free as possible, there is no visible scar.


Who is a Suitable Candidate for Clitoris Aesthetics? In what cases is clitoris aesthetics performed?

Although the basic genital anatomy is the same in women, there may be significant differences in the external appearance of the vulva. In case of differences caused by genetic factors, aging, weight, hormones and birth, clitoral aesthetics may be applied. Conditions requiring clitoris aesthetics can be listed as follows:

  • To increase sexual arousal and satisfaction in patients whose clitoris is difficult to stimulate due to excess tissue on the clitoris.
  • To make the appearance caused by sagging, thick and dark skin on the clitoris more aesthetic.
  • To provide a more proportionate and aesthetic appearance in patients undergoing labium minora reduction.
  • Reducing recurrent fungal and bacterial infections due to thick and layered tissues


Why is Clitoris Aesthetics Performed?

Clitoris aesthetics can be used to increase the effectiveness of clitoris-related sexual functions and to provide a genital area appearance that is aesthetically pleasing to the person’s wishes.


The clitoris is the centre of sexual pleasure and is extremely sensitive to external stimuli. However, it can fulfil this function depending on the level of sexual stimulation. When the clitoral hood is too thick, in addition to sensitivity and discomfort, sexual stimuli cannot stimulate the clitoris sufficiently, and therefore sexual pleasure may not be felt enough.


It is possible to eliminate these complaints thanks to the procedures performed within the scope of clitoris aesthetics. Reducing the clitoral hood slightly exposes the clitoris and increases the level of sexual arousal. Additionally, complaints such as itching and discomfort caused by the size of the clitoral hood can be resolved.

How Is Clitoris Aesthetics Performed?

Surgical procedures within the scope of clitoris aesthetics can be performed together with surgical procedures for other areas of the genital area, depending on individual needs. Clitoris aesthetics can be used during procedures such as labiaplasty, vulvoplasty and vaginoplasty, which are aesthetic applications for the vulva and vagina. However, it is also possible to apply clitoris aesthetics alone to women who have clitoris-related problems only. Procedures such as clitoroplasty or clitoral hood reduction, hudoplasty and hudectomy can be used to eliminate problems in the clitoris.


Clitoroplasty is performed to restore the clitoris to the appropriate anatomy and preserve the functional properties of the clitoris, especially in children who have problems with the growth and development process in the womb, in cases where the genital area is not fully mature or does not develop properly. Additionally, clitoroplasty can be performed for the restoration of clitoral anatomy in adults. In patients with an enlarged clitoris, the clitoroplasty procedure can be used to restore its appropriate size and correct it anatomically.


The clitoral hood reduction procedure is performed to correct the vulva and skin folds covering the surface of the clitoris and to remove the clitoris. Negativities such as itching, discomfort and irritation caused by the large clitoral hood can be prevented. In addition, sexual stimuli reach the clitoris more easily. However, it is extremely important that the procedure be performed by specialized and experienced doctors, as excessive reduction of the clitoral hood may cause different problems.


Clitoris aesthetics can be defined as a surgical procedure that is generally performed on a daily basis and completed in a short time. Before the application, the patient is given local anaesthesia. If necessary, sedation can be used to eliminate any pain or discomfort that may be felt during the procedure. In necessary cases, the patient or doctor may prefer general anaesthesia. The procedure is usually completed within 1 hour.


Clitoris aesthetics is often associated with other areas of the genital area. Therefore, clitoral aesthetic procedures can also be combined with aesthetic procedures for the vaginal lips in people with anatomical distortions in their genital areas. During the operation, the procedure called labiaplasty, in which sagging of the vaginal lips is eliminated, can be combined with clitoroplasty or clitoral hood reduction procedures.

Where is the Clitoris?

The clitoris, which is surrounded by labial lips on its sides, is a structure that extends to the upper junction of the labia minora (labia minor) and remains in the soft tissue between the labia majora. Below the clitoris is opening of the urethra, and below it is the opening of the vagina. Below the clitoris is the urinary outlet (opening of the urethra) and below that is the opening of the vagina (vaginal entrance). Although it is not visible to the naked eye due to its location between the labia majora, the clitoris swells and grows during sexual arousal.


In order for the clitoris to be visible from the outside, the labia minora must be pushed back with the fingers. Although the body part of the clitoris consists of two arms extending to the sides, these arms, which are embedded in the vulva, are not visible from the outside. Only the upper part of the clitoris, which has a total length of approximately 15-20 cm, is covered by a structure called the clitoris hood.


There are approximately 8000 nerve fibres in the clitoris, whose average size varies between 4 and 6 cm (including the head and body part). This fibre density is approximately twice the nerve fibres in the head of the penis. Although the nerve content increases as the clitoris grows, this should not be interpreted as a larger clitoris guaranteeing a stronger and better orgasm.

What is Cliteromegaly? How is Cliteromegaly Treated?

The clitoris, known as the point of sexual arousal and pleasure in the female body, is normally hidden between the lips of the vagina. Cliteromegaly is a condition in which the clitoris in the female body is larger than its normal size.


Cliteromegaly may be congenital or may result from hormone imbalances. Cliteromegaly may occur when testosterone, known as the male hormone, is high. Cliteromegaly, which can affect sexual satisfaction and cause lack of self-confidence in women, is a treatable condition.


For the treatment of cliteromegaly, the underlying cause must first be determined. Correcting the hormone imbalance is usually an effective treatment method.

Surgical procedures may also be required for the treatment of cliteromegaly. The goal of the surgical procedure is to reduce and shape the clitoris to its normal size. The clitoris tissue is arranged and excess tissue is removed when necessary. Bringing the clitoris to its normal size can also provide a better aesthetic appearance.


Clitoropexy, a cliteromegaly operation that is customized according to the needs of the patient, does not cause a decrease in female orgasm. It enables the abnormally sized clitoris to have an aesthetic and healthy appearance. It may be possible to increase the comfort of life of older women with a large clitoris by eliminating complaints such as irritation and injury caused by excessive friction. What is important in all these processes is to consult specialist and experienced doctors in their field and to fully follow the doctor’s recommendations during and after the treatment process.

What are the Prices of Clitoris Aesthetics?

Clitoris aesthetic prices vary depending on many different factors. The most important reason for this is that clitoris aesthetics are planned and customized specifically for the patient. Factors such as the scope of the procedure to be applied, the type of anaesthesia, whether it is combined with different procedures, the expertise of the doctor and the price policy of the clinic have a direct impact on clitoris aesthetic prices.
