Lateral Redundant Prepuce Reduction Phoenix

What is Lateral Redundant Prepuce Arizona?

Lateral Redundant Prepuce Reduction is the surgical procedure performed to reduce or remove “excess” skin around the clitoris. The prepuce is the skin that comes from in between the outer lips of the vulva. It is normally called the clitoral hood but many doctors refer it to as the prepuce to their patients.

Why would someone need Lateral Redundant Prepuce Reduction Surgery?

A candidate for Lateral Redundant Prepuce Reduction we mention that they think that they have too much skin over the clitoris. For many women this is never an issue but some believe that it gives their clitoris too wide of an appearance that they are embarrassed about. Lateral Redundant Prepuce Reduction can also be preformed to improve sexual stimulation. Removing the clitoral hood, or redundant prepuce, makes it easier for the clitoris to have stimulation which can increases sexual response dramatically in some individuals. Patients sometimes describe less friction with stimulation in this area because there is more skin over the clitoris than there once was. Patients are often shocked to learn that this is the second most common external cosmetic vaginal problem because they thought they were the only ones with the problem!

What will happen in the recovery period?

During the recovery period, avoid sitting for long periods and do not drive. Strenuous exercise and heavy lifting should also be avoided. Recovery varies from person to person. It could take up to two weeks to fully recover.

Any discomfort that patients experience can be managed with medication. Because dissolvable sutures are used, there are no stitches that need to be removed. Some slight bruising and swelling can be expected around the labia and surrounding tissue. Most patients are able to return to work on the day after surgery, though more strenuous activities will need to be postponed for four to six weeks.
