Vaginal Rejuvenation Surgery
Leesburg - Northern Virginia - Loudoun
Clitoroplasty addresses the cosmetic appearance of the clitoris. A clitoroplasty is NOT the removal of the clitoris; rather, it is the partial “reduction” of the foreskin covering the clitoris.
Some women can develop a significant amount of clitoral foreskin that gives a larger and heavier appearance that may sometimes be seen through clothing and can result in problems with sexual stimulation and orgasm.
Our conservative clitoroplasty procedure partially reduces the excess clitoral foreskin to give a more attractive appearance while improving sexual satisfaction.
This is a delicate surgery. Dr. Chang is experienced and sensitive to the needs of his patients. His aim is to help patients feel confidant in themselves again.
Our clitoroplasty procedure reduces the clitoral foreskin by creating a V-shaped excision of very superficial skin that is in front of the clitoris. Great care is taken not to incise any deeper than the skin to preserve the neurovascular tissue that provides for sexual satisfaction. Many patients will have a concurrent labiaplasty or other forms of vaginal rejuvenation.
The procedure is performed in either the office under local anesthesia and valium, or at the hospital surgery center under general anesthesia. The vast majority of our patients choose to have their procedures in the office setting. This is a quicker surgery with less downtime and a swifter recovery.
Candidates for clitoroplasty surgery are women who feel that their clitoral foreskin:
- is too long
- shows through her clothing
- decreases their sexual sensation
- has had an injury that needs repair
- needs to be reshaped due to a congenital birth defect
Dr. Chang’s conservative clitoroplasty procedure removes a vertical wedge of tissue that reduces the vertical and horizontal length from the elongated labia tissue. The scar is barely visible and avoids major complications.
The wedge avoids the more traditional technique used by non-cosmetic gynecologists and surgeons who remove tissue across the entire length of the labia. This poor technique results in a linear scar along the entire front to back length of the labia which produces not only a visible and often unsightly scar, but a scar that is sometimes painful.
Clitoroplasty surgery takes around 1 – 2 hours depending on whether the procedure is performed in the office or at a hospital and if other surgical procedures are performed at the same time.
Recovery from clitoroplasty surgery is very similar to recovery from an episiotomy or hemorrhoid surgery.
- Patients benefit from sitting on a “woopy cushion” for 2-4 weeks to avoid pressure on the area
- Pain is tolerable, but you might benefit from taking the prescribed narcotic pain medication for 3-5 days
- Final results should not be expected for at least 3-6 months
- Intercourse should be avoided for 4-6 weeks
- Sutures if any are removed in 10 to 14 days
- Strenuous exercise should also be avoided for 2 to 4 weeks to help in the recovery process
- Most patients will take 3 to 7 days off work
As with any surgery, there are associated risks. Only you can decide whether the procedure can achieve your goals and if the recovery and risks are acceptable to you. Complications are rare but can include:
- Local bleeding or bruising
- Infection particularly from the absorbable sutures
- Loss of sensation although rare
- Widened or thickened scar
- Asymmetry (unevenness between two sides)
- Delayed wound healing with skin or tissue necrosis
- Extra skin at the ends of the incisions
Unsatisfactory results may require additional procedures. Patients will generally be responsible for any associated facility fees.
The price of any procedure is reflected in the skill and quality of your surgeon. You are paying for the skill, quality, and technique that Dr. Chang provides for your clitoroplasty procedure
When done well, clitoroplasty will significantly enhance your physical appearance, so it is important to concentrate on having a skilled surgeon with years of training, like Dr. Chang, rather than a low price. To help make surgery affordable, Aesthetica Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center will help you find low-interest financing.
It is very common to combine clitoroplasty with other vaginal rejuvenation procedures. They can include:
- Mons pubis reduction
- Labia majora fat transfer
- Mommy makeover
- diVa Laser treatment
