Clitoral good reduction-only
yes!! A clitoral good reduction can be performed without doing a labiaplasty. Some patients seek the procedure in an attempt to achieve clitoral orgasm more easily/quickly. Others will have it done months after having had a labiaplasty procedure. The key is to seek out a surgeon who is an expert in performing clitoral good reductions. Best wishes ~Dr Poucher
Clitoral Hood Reduction Without Labiaplasty
Thank you for your question. Clitoral hood reduction without labiaplasty is possible. However, recommendations should be individualized after a thorough physical examination by and conversation of goals with the cosmetic genital surgeon. Seeking the recommendations of an experienced genital surgeon should be the first step even if it means traveling to another region of your country or even to the United States. I wish you the best of luck. Jeffrey S. Palmer, MD, FACS, FAAP (Cosmetic Urologist)
Clitoral hood reduction
A clitoral hood reduction can be done without a labiaplasty but that may not be in your best interest. It is impossible to give you an educated opinion without an exam or at least several detailed photos.

While I can't comment specifically on your case you might want to be careful "doctor shopping" for parts of a procedure. Some doctors will just operate and leave you looking less than your best. It is true that Clitoral Hood Reduction is usually performed with Labiaplasty and it may be difficult to predict how you might look with less than the usual treatment.

Is it possible to get a clitoral hood reduction without doing a labiaplasty?
Thank you for writing in with your excellent question. First of all, I would recommend you get more than one opinion from experienced surgeons who perform both labiaplasty and hood reduction, however, it is uncommon to perform just a hood reduction due to how it would look afterwards. Usually women with extra hood tissue have larger labia and it is recommended to reduce both at the same time to achieve the best aesthetic result. Without a picture of your anatomy, it is hard to determine exactly what is needed.
It is possible just to do the hood reduction if the patient has the appropriate expectations, but in my experience of performing over 750 labiaplasties, many with hood reductions, I have not seen a significant amount of "pulling up" of the labial tissues. You may be unhappy if you just do the hood alone and may end up going back for a labia reduction at a future time.
In terms of cost, many surgeons charge separate fees for the labiaplasty and hood reduction, but if done at the same time, a discount is usually offered. Some doctors offer financing and payment plans as well. Be sure to do your homework and find highly trained and experienced cosmetic gynecologists, plastic surgeons or urogynecologists that know more than one labiaplasty technique, ask to see lots of before and after pictures, and discuss how they handle complications that may come up.
