The amount of tissue that surrounds the clitoris is different for every woman. Prepuce refers to tissue in the clitoral hoods, which covers the clitoris to protect against undue abrasion or over stimulation. Women with small clitoral nodes or those who have excess Prepuce tissue find that they can’t achieve orgasm, or have a harder time reaching climax. The clitoris is literally covered (or restricted by too much tissue), greatly lessening tactile sensation and/or eliminating it entirely. Some women have enlarged labia minor (inner lips) tissue and/or labia majora (outer lips) tissue due to genetics, sexual intercourse, difficulties in childbirth, or significant weight gain or loss. Enlarged inner or outer labia can be painful, cause constant irritation, and result in feelings of unattractiveness or inadequacy.
To determine if you are a candidate for female genital cosmetic surgery, the physicians at Academic Urology & Urogynecology of Arizona may perform a series of tests to detect clitoral sensitivity and size, width of vaginal canal, and ease of clitoral de-sheathing – the process (which typically occurs during intercourse) whereby the dermal sheath covering the clitoral node is exposed. If surgery is determined the best treatment, our female urology specialists will decide what procedure (or combination of surgical procedures) is most appropriate for you and your condition. Listed below are a few of the cosmetic feminine procedures available at Academic Urology & Urogynecology of Arizona.
