With hypertrophy, i.e. enlargement of the inner labia, the skin above the clitoris is thickened and excessive. This is a typical side effect of increasing age. With a small operation, the skin can be tightened. As a rule, we carry out this operation in combination with one labia correction .
What about the clitoris can be corrected?
In most cases, excess skin develops on the side or just above the clitoris. The clitoris itself, a sensitive point where thousands of nerve endings collect and which is responsible for a large part of the feeling of sexual pleasure, must not be irritated under any circumstances. For this reason, a little protective skin must always remain over the clitoris. However, if the skin is clearly overhanging or there is too much at the transition to the inner labia, it should be tightened. This results in a harmonious, fresh overall picture and a more intense feeling during sexual intercourse.
What scars are caused by a clitoral lift?
The scars run laterally on both sides or, if the clitoral hood is also tightened upwards, like an inverted Y. In both cases, the scar is hardly visible later. After the operation, the area around the clitoris often swells significantly, but this usually subsides after 2 weeks.
What should be considered postoperatively?
You should refrain from sexual intercourse for about 4-6 weeks after the operation until everything has healed well. You can shower on the first day after the operation. The area around the clitoris is very sensitive, so you will feel pain after the operation, but this usually subsides after about 3 days.
