Hoodoplasty is the exposing and bulging of parts of the clitoris hidden under the folds of the skin. Its aim is to improve the quality of sexual experiences of the patient. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia. The patient regains full sexual function after about 2 weeks after the procedure.
A direct indication for hoodoplasty is hypertrophy of the clitoral foreskin, preventing stimulation and achieving sexual satisfaction.
- Pregnancy and feeding period
- Active intimate infection
How to prepare for surgery?
The operation is preceded by a consultation visit. Before surgery, the following tests should be performed (tests can be performed at our Clinic)
- blood type
- urine general test
- coagulogram – APTT, INR, PT
- ECG after 40
- HBS antigen
- sugar level
You must not take the following medications: aspirin or its derivatives (e.g. Acard), Vitamin E, as well as antitussive and anti-influenza medications 2 weeks before the planned surgery. These measures adversely affect the prolongation of bleeding during surgery.
Limit smoking to 3-4 cigarettes a day, 3 days before surgery.
The operator should be informed of the history of infection if it occurred within 2 weeks before the planned surgery.
You should stay 6 hours fasting (without food and drink) before surgery and take care of hair removal in intimate areas.
Course of operation
The procedure is performed using one of two available techniques, with the help of a laser, scalpel or radiofrequency, cutting out excess tissue of the clitoral folds, partially exposing the acorn of the clitoris, enabling its stimulation during intercourse. If the procedure is performed individually, not in conjunction with labiominoplasty or vaginoplasty, it is performed under local anesthesia, in the conditions of the treatment room.
After the procedure, the patient remains under observation for several hours. She is discharged home in the afternoon with recommendations.
