Clitoral Hoodoplasty

The clitoral hood or clitoral foreskin covers the clitoral body from the pubic bone to the clitoral glans (also known as the clitoral head or the clitoral tip). The clitoral hood consists of the orifice (opening of the clitoral hood) and the clitoral prepuce.

Prof. Dr. Ostrzenski conducted the clinical study (between 2006 and 2010), which assisted him in developing a clitoral hoodoplasty classification and new surgical procedures. Clitoral hood characteristics were used to establish a new clitoral hood classification:

  1. Partially occluded clitoral hood opening demonstrates the presence of miniature clitoral hood orifice opening and it is also known as clitoral hood phimosis,
  2. The completely occluded clitoral hood opening is also known as the buried clitoral glans under the foreskin of the clitoris,
  3. Protruding the clitoral foreskin from the clitoral glans and is also known as the hypertrophic clitoral foreskin (the clitoral hood is elongated or too thick, or both),
  4. Asymmetrical subdermal hypertrophy is the uneven thickness of the clitoral hood on both sides of the clitoral glans.

Each category of the clitoral hood will require a different surgical intervention. The following surgical interventions for clitoral hoodoplasty have been developed by Prof. Dr. Ostrzenski:

  1. Hydrodissection with reverse V-plasty is a surgical technique that is applicable for the partially or entirely occluded clitoral hood orifice. This procedure is for restorative clitoral hoodoplasty and is performed for both medical indications as well as cosmetic motives.

  2. Modified hydrodissection with reverse V-plasty is a surgical intervention that is implemented for the protruding clitoral prepuce. This form of surgery reductive hoodoplasty designated to decrease the excessive length of the clitoral prepuce or to reduce the uneven thickness of the clitoral hood. Prof. Dr. Ostrzenski’s modification of a hydrodissection with reverse V-plasty technique is used to reduce the excessive and overlapping clitoral hood.
  3. Clitoral subdermal hoodoplasty for asymmetrical hypertrophy (uneven thickness). This surgical method is beneficial when the uneven thickness of the clitoral prepuce is present. The operation can be combined, and often is, with the Prof. Dr. Ostrzenski’s modified hydrodissection with reverse V-plasty for reductive clitoral hoodoplasty.
