WHO THIS PROCEDURE IS INTENDED FOR
Women who have undergone a clitoral excision in childhood or adolescence for ritual reasons, or after vulvo-clitoral trauma
Clitoral anatomy implies that the excision is usually limited to the protruding part of the clitoris, leaving in place the deep and lateral roots of this organ. If so, these elements can be found and used to reconstruct a new clitoris.
TYPE OF ANESTHESIA
Local or general anesthesia, or neuroleptanalgesia (deep sedation).
Infection and wound dehiscence are always possible as well as residual scarring pain, usually transient.
