Rethinking reconstruction: Ethical standards and practice guidelines as a prerequisite to clitoral reconstruction following female genital mutilation/cutting

Abstract:
Wilson and Zaki describe a “Novel Clitoral Reconstruction and Coverage With Sensate Labial Flaps” as a “potential remedy” for women who have undergone female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM/C).1 We would like to discuss some scientific and ethical issues in relation to clitoral reconstruction (CR) surgery, touching on sociocultural, political, interpersonal, and psychological factors involved in promoting psychosexual health of women and girls with FGM/C.
