The term hoodoplasty (also known as clitoral hood reduction) is a term often used in genital aesthetic surgery and refers to the correction or shaping of the clitoris hood in women for aesthetic reasons. The clitoris hood is the fold of skin that surrounds the clitoris and, in some cases, can be large or asymmetrical.
Hoodoplasty surgery is performed by removing or reshaping the excess skin of the clitoris hood. This procedure can make the clitoris more exposed and comfortable and can help it become more sensitive to sexual stimuli.
The surgery is performed under local anesthesia, but general anesthesia can also be used, depending on the surgeon and patient's preference and the conditions. During the procedure, the surgeon makes careful incisions to remove or reshape excess skin on the clitoris hood. This allows the clitoris to be more exposed and comfortable.
Before planning a hoodoplasty surgery, it is important to have a detailed consultation with your surgeon. You should clearly express to your surgeon whether the surgery will meet your expectations and wishes. You should also get information about the risks of the surgery, possible side effects, and the healing process. Your surgeon will advise you on what you should pay attention to in the preoperative period and carry out the necessary health checks. If you are a smoker, you should inform your surgeon before the operation, because smoking may increase the risk of the operation and may adversely affect the healing process. It is also important to follow your surgeon's instructions to ensure that you are not hungry or dehydrated before the day of surgery.
After hoodoplasty surgery, you should pay attention to care and rest as recommended by your surgeon. In the postoperative period, there may be swelling, bruising, and mild pain in the area. Your surgeon will prescribe you the necessary medication to alleviate these symptoms. During the healing process, you should regularly use the antibiotics prescribed by your doctor to reduce the risk of infection. In the postoperative period, you may need to avoid heavy physical activities and sexual intercourse for a while. The exact healing process may vary from person to person, but you can achieve the best results by following the guidelines recommended by your surgeon. If you experience any excessive bleeding, infection, or other adverse symptoms after surgery, you should contact your doctor immediately. Regular postoperative check-ups are important to ensure that the healing process is progressing correctly.

Women who are unhappy with the appearance of their clitoral hood or experience discomfort may consider Hoodoplasty. However, each person’s candidacy should be assessed by a qualified plastic surgeon.
Hoodoplasty is considered a minor surgical procedure. It can often be performed under local anesthesia, with the option of general anesthesia based on the patient's preference.
During Hoodoplasty, the surgeon carefully removes excess tissue from the clitoral hood or reshapes it to achieve the desired aesthetic outcome.
The procedure usually takes a short amount of time, typically ranging from 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the complexity of the surgery.
Discomfort after Hoodoplasty is common, but any pain can usually be managed with prescribed pain medications.
As with any surgical procedure, there are potential risks, including infection, bleeding, scarring, and changes in sensitivity.
Hoodoplasty may expose the clitoris more prominently, potentially enhancing sexual sensitivity, though individual results can vary.
Patients typically need to avoid sexual activity and strenuous exercise for several weeks after the surgery, as advised by the surgeon.
The results of Hoodoplasty are usually long-lasting, but aging and natural changes may affect the appearance over time.
