Clitoral Hood Reduction Houston
Women who seek genital enhancement to improve their sexual experience and to be more confident in their femininity often chose to undergo a clitoral hood reduction.
The clitoris is an erectile tissue that projects in the vulva and is covered by a hood homologous to the male foreskin. This hood can become enlarged and stick out, making women feel uncomfortable. Clitoral hood reduction is a procedure that surgically removes excess tissue to enhance the hood covering the clitoris.
