A straightforward outpatient surgical operation called a hoodoplasty can be completed in about an hour under local, oral, or general anaesthesia, depending on the patient.

By creating a little incision in the clitoral hood, the extra skin (prepuce) can be gently removed without damaging the clitoris or any of the nearby nerves. Dissolvable stitches are used to seal the incision when the surgery is successfully completed. You won’t need to visit the doctor again to have the stitches removed as a result.
