How Much Would Just a Clitoral Hood Reduction Cost, Without Labiaplasty?

I have trouble achieving orgasm,due to having a thick clitoral hood. I require much hard manual stimulation. I would just like to have some of the hood reduced. Can I do this and how much would it cost typically? How long would the recovery be?

Hello, the cost can range from 2500-3500 USD. This depends on what area you are practicing and level of anesthesia involved. The procedure can be done under local anesthetic like lidocaine or numbing shots. This will reduce the cost vs general anesthesia. It is up to your comfort level and surgeon. You should not feel pain or discomfort during the procedure is the point. Thanks.

Thank you for the question.

Clitoral hood reduction surgery may or may not be effective in improving your ability to achieve orgasm. As you know, there are both psychological and physical "components"  involved in the ability/ease of  achieving orgasm.

I would suggest that you consult with a well experienced board-certified plastic surgeon  and  see many examples of his/her work.

Costs will range from $1000-2000  in our  practice depending on the  type of anesthesia/ location of surgery factors.

Best wishes.

I have a great deal of experience with Labiaplasty and Clitoral Hood reduction. The Clitoral Hood can be done with local anesthesia (and mild oral sedation if you choose). It is a very well tolerated procedure and costs around $1000 (this includes the facility and nurse fee as well ). The recovery is quite quick and all of the sutures dissolve on their own. Please be aware, however, that  there is no guarantee that this will improve your sexual experience.

All my best,

Does a large clitoral hood have anything to do with orgasm?

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
When a woman perceives that excessive clitoral stimulation is necessary to achieve orgasm, the skin of the clitoral hood may suffer the consequences of excessive pulling and rubbing - it may enlarge, appear baggy, and thicken. The solution to the orgasm issue does not lie within the clitoral hood, but rather in a thoughtful evaluation of the entire sexual response and a neuromuscular assessment of the entire area.
