How Much Does a Clitoral Hood Reduction Cost, on Average?

I've tried to look online to see when I would be able to afford the procedure, but I have only seen the price on one website, and I wanted to get more information of what other doctors charge.

Clitoral hood reduction costs

Thank you for sharing your question and concerns. A clitoral hood reduction would help you decrease the amount of skin overhanging the clitoris. It can be done under local anesthesia in the office and can be combined with a labiaplasty or as a standalone procedure. We charge $3000 - $4000 depending on the level of sedation. I would recommend that you visit with a board certified plastic surgeon in your area to discuss your options in more detail.

Price for a Clitoral hood reduction

First and foremost you want to make sure that the surgeon you are seeing has a vast experience in the procedure regardless of the price.
We perform dozens of Labiaplasties per year with most being accompanied by a clitoral hood reduction.  
I have made the decision years ago that pricing should be competitive and affordable.  This allows patients who might not be able to afford top dollars for a procedure to gain access to a top surgeon with vast experience and volume.
On average the cost of our Clitoral hood reduction is 1500.00 including visits and local anesthesia.  

Best of luck :)

Clitoral Reduction Costs

If you are only seeking a reduction of your hood and nothing else, this can be done as an office procedure under local anesthetic  for less than $1500.  Be aware that you could become more sensitive due to more exposure and if overdone, can create an unusual appearance.

Clitoral Hood Reduction Cost

I occasionally see women who have undergone labiaplasty with a failure of their original surgeon to satisfactorily reduce the clitoral hood. For these patients, only a clitoral hood reduction is necessary. My current total fee for this procedure ranges from $3000 to $3500, and it can always be performed under local anesthesia.

Clitoral hood reduction cost

Most patients reduce the clitoral hood along with reduction of the labia minora, in which case the cost of surgery is often between $4000 and $6000. If you only want a clitoral hood reduction, the cost may be around $1000 to $2000.

Clitoral hood reduction costs.

As most physicians here have answered, this is usually performed at the same time as a labiaplasty. As an independent procedure however it can almost always be performed with local anesthesia and the cost is not excessive being in the region of $2500.

Clitoral Hood Reduction

Usually a clitoral hood reduction is done at the same time as a labiaplasty, but I have seen patients who have a disproportionall protruberant clitoral hood area if this ws not adressed during the original operation, in these cases an isolated clitoral hood reduction can be done. The cost is around 4,000 dollars and the recovery is easy Good Luck

Usually this procedure is performed at the same time as the labia reduction. The range for this would be $3500-5000.

Usually a part of a total labiaplasty


I usually do this if needed during a "full" labiaplasty operation. I haven't done them outside of that. Hood reduction alone might be able to be done under local in the office and therefore might be pretty inexpensive. You really need to be evaluated first though.
