Redundant Prepuce (excess skin/hood) is located directly over the clitoris and acts as a protective cover to the clitoris. This hood occurs in approximately 50 to 60% of patients. It is found as a second hood and is actually a second complete structure. The hood begins above the apex of the clitoral hood and ends at the labia minora.
This is a purely cosmetic procedure that also enhances sensation. Many women elect to have the labia minor reduction surgery to have this redundancy removed or reduced to have an aesthetically appealing labia minor reduction surgery.
Typically performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia.
