About Clitoral Hood Reduction
The clitoris is protected by a layer of skin referred to as the prepuce. This skin is necessary to prevent chaffing, discomfort, and the area from becoming desensitized. However, sometimes the prepuce can be larger than normal and protrude further than you may want it to. This condition may be caused by genetics, trauma, or childbirth. Excess skin around your clitoris may not only be unattractive and make you feel embarrassed, but it can also produce discomfort and irritation when wearing certain clothing or performing certain activities, including sexual intercourse. Double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Nana Mizuguchi is sensitive to these needs and uses absolute discretion when performing a clitoral hood reduction at Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery. This surgery is minimally invasive and can reduce the size of the clitoral hood by removing the excess skin and tissues that are causing it to protrude. If you are ready to restore your appearance, then please contact our Louisville, KY plastic surgery practice today.
You will be an ideal candidate for clitoral hood reduction surgery if:
- You have excess skin that causes you to be self-conscious about your genitalia
- You have pain, discomfort, or difficulty performing activities because of your large clitoral hood
- You desire to feel and look more feminine
- You desire increased sensation and sexual satisfaction

"Dr. Mizuguchi and his staff are wonderful. In July of 2019 I had my consultation appointment. The moment my husband and I walked in, I knew I was in good hands. Kristy and Dr. Mizuguchi answered all of my questions and answered questions I hadn’t even thought of yet. Fast forward to October 2019. I had breast augmentation surgery. I couldn’t be more pleased with the results. After breast feeding 3 little ones throughout the past 6 years, it was nice to have a small ‘mom makeo...ver’ to feel beautiful again. He even called later the night of surgery to check on me and see how things were going. I unfortunately had an allergic reaction to either the pain meds or antibiotic but him and his staff were on top of it and had it taken care of right away. Everything has been a 5 star from day one of calling their practice. I highly recommend Dr. Mizuguchi and his staff!"- C.K. / Facebook / Jan 04, 2020
"Dr. Mizuguchi and his entire staff are truly amazing. They all give off positive vibes & really care about the experiences they provide. I am almost 3 weeks post op (breast augmentation). They’ve made me feel at ease with decisions, asking questions, and the overall care they provide. I am beyond happy with my choice in Dr Mizuguchi, and would absolutely recommend him to anyone. He most definitely exceeded my expectations, all while making the entire process so smooth! I honestly couldn’t be any happier with my results and feel so much better about myself!!!"- C.W. / Facebook / Dec 11, 2019
"OMG... I never thought I would be someone who needed this procedure. - After my 3rd and 4th babies were delivered I realized my body would never be the same. I had twins. It was rough on my body. Over the last 18 years, I tried everything to gain core strength. Nothing worked and now I realize why. I had a very large open area in my upper abd. Muscles. I remember taking up pilates and yoga thinking it would help. Both made it even worse. I also did triathlons . I understand the reason I was unable to run after I swam and biked.I understand my body mechanics better. Wow, I wish I had done this years ago. I really did not want to resort to surgery. If others go through the same as me I hope they find a good surgeon . Some of my friends understand what I have been through and some think I I did it for looks. Looking good is a benefit from this surgery. But my core strength was more important.I had started having back injuries that kept getting worse. The more I hurt my back the less I could do physically. It was getting harder to go for walks. Thank you to the staff and doctor for encouraging me to go forward with this procedure. I hope other women who have the same issues seek good surgeons. Having babies is hard on our bodies . I had twins and it was even harder. Pros I finally have answers to my abd. Issues. Cons it is still a surgery."- S. / RealSelf / Dec 10, 2019
"I can’t say enough about Dr. Mizuguchi and everyone in his office. They are friendly and helpful and guide you through your surgery from start to finish. I couldn’t be more pleased with the results of my breast reduction and lift. He did an amazing job and my only regret is that I didn’t do the surgery 10 years ago. He is professional and genuinely a great person, taking the time to put his patient at ease. I would highly recommend a consultation with Dr. Mizuguchi if you are considering having anything done for yourself. My results are wonderful!!"- K.F. / Healthgrades / Dec 09, 2019
What to Expect
A clitoral hood reduction is a minimally invasive, outpatient procedure that generally only requires local anesthesia. During the operation, our plastic surgeon will create small incisions in order to remove and reshape the existing skin and tissues, resulting in an overall uniform and proportional appearance. Once completed, he will place dissolvable sutures in the treated areas. This treatment typically lasts around one hour. Dr. Mizuguchi uses precise techniques that should not affect the nerve endings or surrounding areas, and will produce minimal scarring.
After your clitoral hood reduction, you will feel some minor pain, swelling, and discomfort in the area. You may want to apply ice if necessary and take 3 – 4 days off from work and your normal activities. As the skin heals, you should begin to see your results over time, with a less prominent clitoral hood and more symmetrical, appealing genitalia. You should also feel more comfort during activities and when wearing tight clothing. Sometimes, this surgery can produce increased sensation in the area and more sexual pleasure.
Plan Your Procedure
If you're feeling self-conscious, are embarrassed to perform certain activities, or feel discomfort from an enlarged clitoral hood, then consider having a reduction surgery. A quick outpatient operation is all that is needed to restore your femininity and boost your confidence. You may also experience more pleasure and sensitivity as a result.
