Dr. Novoa offers this exceptionally precise surgery for women seeking to improve the aesthetic appearance of their genital area by excising the extra folds of skin lateral to the clitoris. The clitoris itself and its nerves are never touched. This is NOT clitoral mutilation or clitoral un-hooding.
The surgery is performed under local anesthesia on an outpatient basis. Once the area is numb, the redundant tissue is surgically excised and removed to allow the clitoris to be more easily stimulated. The ends are then carefully sutured and the area is cleaned and bandaged. After 30 minutes of observation, the patient is allowed to leave.
