Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting:
Female circumcision (genital cutting) has been practiced for centuries in Africa and other parts of the world. It involves cutting part of the clitoris, clitoral hood, labia minor and sometimes labia majora. It has no health benefits and is a crime against humanity and a violation of human rights.
Genital Restorative Surgery: since most of the clitoris remains after cutting; the clitoral stump can be modified, released from adhesions, and a neo-glans reconstructed. This improves clitoral sensitivity, sexual function, and psycho-sexual outcome
Clitoral Reconstruction: is reported to improve sexual desire, arousal, lubrication, orgasmic capacity and reduces pain by removing peri-clitoral fibrosis, thus making the clitoris more accessible to stimulation.
This highly specialized genital surgery has been noted to help FGM victims, regain their self esteem, confidence, female body image identity, with improvement in quality of life and partner relationship due to the psycho-sexual benefits of the procedure.
De-fibulation: Infibulation (Pharaonic circumcision) is a cultural tradition of narrowing of the vaginal orifice creating a covering skin seal, by cutting and suturing the labia minora and labia majora together on both sides.
De-fibulation (cutting the skin seal) is required before delivery or vaginal surgery, and sometimes before marriage. Women with Pharaonic circumcision (type III) describe cosmetic and functional improvements afterwards.
We have good results with Clitoral Reconstructive Surgery & De-fibulation, mainly sexual function and psycho-sexual improvement.
Labia Minora Reconstruction: The goal is to improve the aesthetic refinement of the vulva and enhance sexual function of FGM victims, by reconstruction and cosmetic adjustment the labia minora, labia majora, and prepuce skin around the clitoris.
We can reconstruct a labia minora even after complete labial amputation from the vulva, this is a new technique developed exclusively by us for labial amputation victims of FGM/C or botched labiaplasty. We are pioneers in these genital surgeries and are well known world wide.
Ending FGM globally, requires change in cultural belief, better education, awareness, and raising socio-economic status of practicing families.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP): Injection of PRP in the clitoral body can re-vitalize a partially amputated clitoris, by increasing growth factors, blood supply , and stimulating regional stem cells; thus improving sensitivity, healing, and enhancing sexual function after surgery.
