Clitoral hood reduction surgery (clitoral hoodectomy) is a surgical procedure aimed at reducing or reshaping the clitoral hood for functional or cosmetic reasons. This highly delicate surgery is performed by our award winning internationally renowned Aesthetic Gynecologist Dr Karl Jallad.
The recovery period after clitoral hood reduction surgery varies case by case but generally follows the following timeline.
1. Immediate Postoperative Period
After the surgery, women may experience mild to moderate discomfort, swelling, and bruising in the intimate area. Pain medications and ice packs help to manage this phase.
2. Return to Normal Activities
Patients usually return to light activities within a few days to a week after surgery. Strenuous exercise, sexual intercourse, and the use of tampons should be avoided for several weeks however.
3. Swelling and Discomfort
Swelling and discomfort is likely to persist for several weeks but gradually improve. Wearing loose-fitting clothing will minimize any irritation during this period.
4. Follow-Up Appointments
It’s essential to attend follow-up appointments with the surgeon to monitor the healing process and ensure there are no complications.
5. Full Recovery
Complete healing and the final results may take several weeks to a few months. Any scarring will normally fade over time and become less noticeable.
