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.

"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
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.
