Clitoris is the anatomical name of male penis head for women. During the sexual intercourse blood build up escalates and it expands and gets erected. Thickening of the skin tag which covers this structure can deform its outlook & shape and also can cause arousal & orgasm problems during sexual intercourse.
Procedure for surgically removal of the excessive tissue within that area is called clitoris aesthetic (clitoral hood repair). At the end of clitoral hood repair very good result can be obtained on women who experience arousal & orgasm problems during sexual intercourse. As this operation is not mandatory in terms of medical reasons, it is being performed optionally on one’s request.
Clitoris is a up-side-down looing Y shaped organ located within the genital area right at the top of the urethra (urine discharge hole) on top section where small lips join. Clitoris is formed of head and a couple of body sections. Head section is 2-4 cm long and the body section is 7-8 cm long with a spongiform characteristic. Clitoris’s head section which can be seen externally is called clitoris glans and this point is the most sensitive point which during sexual intercourse fills up with blood & gets erected. The body section of clitoris is further deep-set.
Clitoral hood is piece of skin which covers clitoris glans. If this piece of skin has become long, slackened, sagged & become asymmetric which therefore causing discomfort; then by all means it can be surgically corrected. Eventhough the most common cause of clitoral hood and labium enlargement cases is congenital, hormonal effects during puberty, continuous irritation or pregnancy can also be the cause.
Such excessive skin curve on clitoris decreases female sexual sensitivity. Clitoris being larger than normal leaves physiological effect on people which leads to damaging sexual confidence, furthermore can create embarrassment towards partner.
