Clitoropexy is a surgical procedure designed to reduce or reposition an enlarged, prolapsed or protruding clitoris.

Clitoropexy is most often performed to treat clitoral ptosis (drooping). Clitoromegaly refers to an enlargement of the clitoris, which can be caused by various factors such as hormonal imbalances or certain medications, such as testosterone. Clitoral hood reduction, also known as hoodectomy or hoodoplasty, involves removing excess tissue around the clitoral hood to enhance clitoral visibility and sensitivity. Clitoroplasty, on the other hand, encompasses a range of surgical procedures aimed at altering the clitoris for functional or aesthetic purposes. By providing accurate information on these topics, Miklos and Moore aim to address common concerns and offer insights for individuals seeking more information.

There are several factors that can contribute to the size of the clitoris. One of the main factors is hormones, especially testosterone. If a female body produces excess testosterone, either naturally or through the use of hormone therapy, this can result in clitoral enlargement. This can be an undesirable effect and cause embarrassment and reduce self confidence.
