What is clitoroplasty?

Clitoroplasty is a surgical procedure that involves altering the clitoris to address functional or aesthetic concerns. The clitoris is a highly sensitive organ located at the top of the vulva. Clitoroplasty techniques can include clitoral reduction, augmentation, or release procedures, depending on the individual’s specific goals and needs.

Who is a candidate for clitoroplasty?

Clitoroplasty may be considered for various reasons, such as clitoral hypertrophy (enlargement), clitoral asymmetry, or gender-affirming surgeries. It is important to consult with a qualified surgeon who can evaluate your situation and provide expert advice based on your individual needs and desires.

Can you explain the different types of clitoroplasty procedures?

Clitoroplasty techniques can vary depending on the desired outcome. Reduction clitoroplasty involves reducing the size or length of the clitoris. Augmentation clitoroplasty focuses on enhancing the size or projection of the clitoris. Clitoral release procedures involve releasing the clitoral hood to expose more of the clitoral glans. Combination procedures may incorporate elements from various techniques to achieve the desired aesthetic or functional results.

What should I expect during the recovery period?

Recovery experiences can vary, but following clitoroplasty, you can expect some discomfort, swelling, and bruising in the surgical area. It is important to follow postoperative instructions provided by your surgeon, which may include guidelines for hygiene, pain management, and sexual activity restrictions. Miklos and Moore will monitor your progress during follow-up visits to ensure proper healing.

How long does it take to see the final results?

The timeline for seeing final results varies from person to person. Initial healing typically occurs within a few weeks, but complete healing may take several months. It is important to have realistic expectations and understand that individual healing processes may differ.
