Cosmetic vaginal surgery includes clitoropexy of clitoris elevation surgery. Some patients through aging, childbirth, pregnancy, weight gain and loss begin to experience a sagging clitoris. This is usually not a problem unless the woman feels she does not like the appearance of elongated clitoral hood area or even more devastating to some patients is the protrusion outward of the clitoris. Often the clitoris will protrude directly outward with patients often describing the protrusion as a “small penis”. At the patients request the clitoris can be approximated upward and inward to the body lessening the so-called protrusion.
Clitoropexy is most commonly performed with a labiaplasty and clitoral hood lift or clitoral hood reduction.
