Clitoral Hood Reduction
Clitoral hood reduction, also termed clitoral hoodectomy, clitoral unhooding, clitoridotomy, or (partial) hoodectomy, is a plastic surgery procedure for reducing the size and the area of the clitoral hood (prepuce) in order to further expose the clitoral glans of the clitoris.
It is sometimes done as a form of elective surgery where the therapeutic goals are to improve the sexual functioning of the patient and the aesthetic refinement of the vulva. It is a form of hoodplasty. The reduction of the clitoral prepuce tissues usually is a subordinate surgery within a labiaplasty procedure for reducing the labia minora, and occasionally within a vaginoplasty procedure. Patient surveys have indicated satisfaction with the outcome of such procedures. However, in 2007 the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists published an opinion advising against representing it as completely safe.
How is a clitoral hood reduction performed?
At the beginning of your procedure, Dr. Thomas Easter will gently apply an anesthetic to the target area. A long-acting numbing formula will also be administered into the vaginal area to allow for extra comfort during your procedure. After you are properly numbed, a V-wedge is created over the clitoral hood to carefully remove the necessary skin. Next, absorbable sutures are placed to close the area. The incision is strategically placed to remain hidden at the base of the labia to decrease the appearance of noticeable scarring. Additional vaginal rejuvenation procedures such as a labiaplasty or vaginoplasty can be also performed either before or after clitoral hood reduction. Patients will also be given the necessary aftercare instruction for optimal and proper healing.

I started hormone therapy in August and I have not felt this good in a over a decade. Dr. Easter has great bedside manners and answered all my questions. Very happy with the service I feel like I am living again
34 years ago today, Dr Easter delivered my nephew Michael. Years later he became my doctor and has seen me through cancer, treatments, surgeries. He’s very kind and takes the time to explain everything. His years of experience and wicked skills gave me the best hysterectomy I could have hoped for. Very little pain and a quick recovery.
I was recommended to Dr. Easter in 2015 by my GP for the Hormone Therapy. Let's just say it's been a life changing experience for me mentally and physically. I had struggled with female issues since my 20's and eventually resulted in a complete hysterectomy removing my ovaries was enduring Menopause at 40. Every Doctor I would see would want to put me on AntiDepressants as a quick fix. That was not an option for me because I think deep inside I knew it was my hormones. Dr. Easter was my last hope as I started suffering from severe depression. I remember walking into his office crying and telling him you are my last hope, HELP ME ... He was so kind and said to me" you are in the right place and I'm here to help" He suggested I come back in a week for me to check in because of how upset I was. I walked in smiling that week and felt like a different woman. I have now been a patient of His for 7 years and have referred everyone I know to him that is facing hormone imbalance. Hormonal Balance is real and can have serious side effects to your health Physically and mentally, not to mention stress on your relationships. I'm so thankful to have found Dr. Easter, not only for his knowledge in HRT, but his empathy with his patients. My only regret is that I wish I did more research to find him sooner... Along with my HRT I received I had the opportunity to try the Alma Duo that Dr. Easter now offers and "WOW" The combination of my hormone pellet therapy along with the Alma therapy is amazing. I do not want to get into too much in detail, but if you are sexually active and looking for a BOOST with your Husband/Wife/Partner, this is a must :) I will let Dr. Easter share all the benefits of this new treatment.. Last but not least, I love Dr. Easter's staff, they are friendly, professional and helpful... Special mention for Vanessa, I created a bond with her immediately... Thank you for being an amazing human :)
Dr Easter is the absolute best! I highly recommend! The staff is super friendly and he has a very clean off. So important these days.
I have been a patient of Dr. Thomas Easter almost 35 years...enough said! Amazing doctor!!!!!!
