Reversal of female circumcision

 
Reversal of female circumcision

Women who have been circumcosed suffer a lot of pain.
Female circumcision involves removing the clitoris, often along with the labia minora. Women will suffer from scars, pain during sex and an absence of pleasure because of the mutilation of their genetalia.

How is it repaired?
The surgeon removes painful scars and seeks out the root of the clitoris to bring it to the surface, creating a "neoclitoris". This is carried out under general anaesthetic.

Results
Healing takes time, but the physical procedure is quick. In terms of sexual pleasure, it can take several months or even a year or two before the woman experiences a true, natural feeling of pleasure. Women who have chosen this type of repair appreciate it enormously, even before their sensations of pleasure develop fully, because they finally feel normal again.
