Excess skin on the sides of the clitoris may cause the clitoris to appear large or uneven. Using precise surgical technique and specialized equipment used in neurosurgery (operating on the brain and nerves) which causes minimal tissue damage, the excess skin is removed from the sided of the clitoris avoiding the nerves.
The clitoris itself and its nerves are never touched using this technique. It should be noted, THIS IS NOT clitoral mutilation or clitoral un-hooding. Clitoral Hood Reduction is done in the office under local anesthesia and takes about 30 minutes.
