What is a hoodectomy?
Is it your goal to rejuvenate your vulva with cosmetic surgery to make it look younger with a more exposed clitoris? If so, you may consider scheduling a consultation for a hoodectomy (a clitoral hood reduction) at Dallas Cosmetic Center in Dallas, TX. Our board-certified gynecologist and cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Otto Huertas, can remove excess skin from the clitoral hood. This procedure is typically performed during a reduction labiaplasty or vaginal rejuvenation procedure. When the clitoral hood is large, the clitoris can be difficult to stimulate and can affect your state of arousal and ultimately your sexual pleasure. A hoodectomy can expose the clitoral nerves and improve the aesthetic appearance of your vulva.
Some women worry that a hoodectomy is a form of clitoral mutilation. Dr. Huertas would like you to know that it is not. This is a surgical procedure to remove the excess tissue around the clitoris, and it will not alter or change the clitoris at all. He also wants to reassure you that this is not female genital mutilation. If you have questions, please schedule a consultation to discuss possible solutions with our team at Dallas Cosmetic Center.
"#1 doctor. Dr. Huertas took the time to sit and answer all of my questions. The nurse and the receptionist were very nice also. They helped me understand my insurance benefits. I will be sending all my friends and family to this office."- M.C. / ZocDoc / May 20, 2022
"Everybody in this office is courteous and make you feel comfortable. They answer all of the question you might have about any procedure! The only "BAD" thing that happened was that even if i had an appointment and got there on time, they had me waiting for 40 minutes!!!"- Anonymous / ZocDoc / May 20, 2022

"Dr. Huertas is a very kind and knowledgable doctor. I’m very happy to have found him. He does biodentical hormone replacement and other cosmetic procedures that most gynecologists don’t do. He also takes most insurance options. 5 stars!!! 👏👏👏👏👏"- A.M. / Google / Mar 25, 2021
"I had a great experience with Dr. Huertas and his staff. He preformed 360 lipo on me and I’m now 1 day post op. I had a massage done with an independent massage therapist and they raved about my first day results! I will update this if anything changes. I would recommend this doctor!"- C.O. / Google / Jan 28, 2021
What Are the Benefits of a Hoodectomy?
The primary benefit of a hoodectomy is a reduction in the overall size of the clitoral hood. This can not only improve the appearance of the area but can also improve sexual arousal. By decreasing the size of the clitoral hood, this procedure makes the clitoris itself easier to access, making it easier to achieve an orgasm.
Who is a Candidate for a Hoodectomy?
What to Expect During a Hoodectomy
Dr. Huertas can surgically reduce your clitoral hood with anesthesia in an outpatient setting at a hospital or surgical facility where he has medical privileges. Your hoodectomy will involve the manual excision of excess tissue surrounding or covering the clitoris. Once the clitoral hood, or prepuce, is cut back, it should significantly expose the clitoris. He will close the incisions without coming into contact with the highly sensitive and arousing erectile tissue. You will recover in a private recovery area until being discharged to go home.
