Clitoral Hood Reduction is typically performed with local anesthesia and oral sedation; IV sedation is also available, if preferred, in our AAAASF accredited office surgical suite. Benefits of local anesthesia include decrease risk of complications from general anesthesia, quicker recovery and cost savings.
refined clitoral hood reduction
Dr. Brenner has refined the in-office Clitoral Hood Reduction in Cincinnati using the Pronox (inhaled nitrous oxide ) device and microtumescent local anesthesia.
Dr. Brenner utilizes the Ellman Surgitron, a unique instrument that has a cool tip, so thermal damage to the underlying tissue is able to be minimized or even eliminated.
The Surgitron is unparalleled in its finesse and no-touch technique. The Ellman Surgitron provides superior precision and cutting (compared to a scalpel), less thermal injury, thereby promoting faster and less painful healing.
All sutures used in Clitoral Hood Reduction are self-dissolvable and disappear within 6 weeks. Individual or interrupted sutures are used. Many other surgeons use a running technique to save time, this leads to a scalloped appearance to the incision line. The procedure takes approximately 60 minutes.
