Top Clitoral Hood Reduction Surgeon / Doctor NYC


The clitoral hood is the tissue that covers and surrounds the clitoris, the highly sensitive and arousing erectile tissue of a female’s vagina. Excess vaginal skin on the sides of the clitoris often causes the clitoris to look enlarged or uneven. Enlargement of the clitoral hood can negatively impact sexual pleasure during lovemaking. In addition, women with an enlarged clitoral hood may also desire an improved cosmetic appearance. A larger than normal clitoral hood can be the result of genetics, childbirth, and even hormones. The NYC board certified plastic surgeon, John G. Hunter, MD, FACS offers an exceptionally precise surgery for women seeking to improve the aesthetic appearance of their genital area by removing the extra folds of skin lateral to the clitoris. This surgery is called “clitoral hood reduction” or “clitoroplasty“.

Please note: With clitoral hood reduction surgery the actual clitoris itself and its nerves are never touched.

Clitoral hood reduction surgery may also be performed by the NYC plastic surgeon at the same time as labiaplasty surgery if there is too much skin covering the clitoris.

Clitoroplasty / clitoral hood reduction surgery eliminates the excess part of the clitoral hood. Clitoroplasty or clitoral hood removal is a safe, quick, and simple surgical procedure medically referred to as a “hoodectomy“. Clitoropexy is essential for the careful surgical fixation of the clitoris when it protrudes beyond its normal anatomic location.

Clitoral hood reduction refers to removing some of the excess skin over the clitoris. In some patients, the skin overlying the clitoris is very prominent and bothers them. This can be removed easily as an isolated procedure, or more commonly it is performed at the time of a labia reduction / labiaplasty surgery.

Dr. Hunter is very meticulous and extremely professional.  He listens and will take as much time is necessary until he knows exactly what you want.  His office is beautiful and his staff is also very professional and very experienced. A clitoral hood reduction changed my life. If you are researching surgeons who offer this life changing surgery you should definitely seek a consultation with Dr. Hunter in NYC. ~ YELP
