As you may know, the clitoris contains many nerve endings. During sexual intercourse, the clitoris becomes enlarged and should grow beyond the hood so that it is exposed to sensation. If this successfully occurs, you will experience sexual pleasure as a result. If this pleasure reaches a high enough intensity, you may achieve a female orgasm. Therefore, if the hood is too pronounced, it may inhibit your ability to feel sexual pleasure and achieve orgasm.
Is Clitoral Unhooding Right for You?
Before performing the surgery, your operating physician should conduct tests to see if there is a need for the procedure. In some cases, sexual dissatisfaction occurs because of a hormonal imbalance, which can be addressed through hormone treatment, which is a non-surgical option. However, if surgery is an appropriate course, your doctor will inform you during consultation about how much tissue should be removed. It is important to avoid removing more tissue than necessary, as it cannot be returned to the body after being excised.
How is a Clitoral Unhooding Performed?
Since clitoral unhooding occurs in a very small area of the body and small quantity of tissue is removed, the surgery only takes about an hour. Moreover, since the local anaesthesia ensures you will not experience pain, it is common for surgeons to keep patients awake during the operation. Surgeons often prefer this option because it allows them to talk with you and ask about your preference
