The splitting of the Clitoral hood. This is often performed on women who want increased sensitivity, especially if they have a long hood which covers the Clitoris and makes direct stimulation difficult.

Hood splits are often done by clamping the tissue until it becomes paper thin, and then cutting with a Scalpel or surgical scissors. Sutures are not needed, though occasionally one is used at the top of the split.
