Nazorg na een schaamlipverkleining

Na de schaamlipcorrectie kan een aanzienlijke zwelling optreden, hierdoor is het belangrijk om direct na de ingreep te beginnen met koelen. Hiervoor wordt meestal een zakje diepvrieserwten gebruikt. Wij adviseren de zwelling enkele dagen regelmatig te blijven koelen. Daarnaast is het belangrijk om de wond goed schoon te houden. Minstens twee keer per dag moet daarom worden gespoeld en na elk toiletbezoek.

After the procedure, the wound is not bandaged. However, it is wise to use sanitary pads to ensure that any blood loss is collected.

In de eerste vier tot zes weken na de schaamlipcorrectie raden wij het af om extra inspanningen te verrichten. Je kunt hierbij denken aan zware lichamelijke arbeid, zwaar tillen, fietsen en sporten. Ook vrijen is tijdens de herstelperiode af te raden.

Wil je meer weten over het herstel na een schaamlipcorrectie? Irene heeft deze ingreep laten doen bij Skin + Surgery, en deelt in dit blog her experience.

Wordt een schaamlipverkleining vergoed?

Een schaamlipcorrectie is een ingreep die over het algemeen niet wordt vergoed. Alleen wanneer de operatie medisch gezien noodzakelijk is, vergoeden sommige zorgverzekeraars in zeldzame gevallen een correctie van de schaamlippen. Wanneer je een schaamlipcorrectie overweegt, is het verstandig om vooraf na te gaan of jouw (aanvullende) zorgverzekering deze ingreep dekt en zo ja, onder welke voorwaarden.

Is een schaamlipverkleining veilig?

Although a labia correction is a relatively simple procedure, there are risks with any surgery. Post-operative bleeding may occur. Also, the wound may become infected and/or inflamed. In some cases, scars may be or remain numb after healing.

Labia are naturally asymmetrical. Although efforts are made to achieve as symmetrical a result as possible, a completely symmetrical result after surgery cannot be guaranteed.

Voor wie is een schaamlipverkleining niet geschikt?

Geen twee vrouwen zijn hetzelfde. Geen twee vagina’s zijn hetzelfde. Heb jij het idee dat je vagina afwijkt van de norm, zonder dat je lijdt aan psychische of fysieke klachten als gevolg hiervan? Dan is het belangrijk om je te realiseren dat er niet zoiets bestaat als de standaard vagina of de gemiddelde vagina. In dat geval is het verstandig om bij jezelf te rade te gaan of het resultaat van een dergelijke operatie werkelijk bijdraagt aan je gevoel van welzijn.

Wanneer de schaamlippen nog niet volgroeid zijn, is een schaamlipcorrectie (nog) niet mogelijk. De operatie kan bij ons worden uitgevoerd als je ouder bent dan 18 jaar.

Voor wie is een schaamlipverkleining geschikt?

Wanneer je binnenste schaamlippen dusdanig groot zijn dat ze verder uitsteken dan de buitenste schaamlippen, kun je hier hinder van ondervinden. De klachten die je hierdoor ervaart kunnen zowel fysiek als psychisch van aard zijn. Lichamelijke klachten kunnen zich uiten in de vorm van pijn bij activiteiten als etsen, paardrijden en andere sporten. Ook het dragen van strakke kleding kan vervelend of zelfs pijnlijk zijn. Soms zorgen grote schaamlippen ook voor pijn bij het vrijen. Psychische klachten kunnen zich uiten in de vorm van bijvoorbeeld schaamte. Wanneer je last hebt van een of meer van deze klachten is een schaamlipcorrectie wellicht een oplossing.

Wat is een schaamlipverkleining precies?

In a labia correction (labia correction), the inner labia are reduced in size. This can be done for cosmetic or medical reasons. The inner labia (labia minora) are surgically reduced in size so that they fall within the outer labia (labia majora) and are thus better protected.

Aftercare after a labia correction

Significant swelling may occur after the labia correction, because of this it is important to start cooling immediately after the procedure. A bag of frozen peas or a cool pack is usually used for this purpose. We recommend continuing to cool the swelling regularly for several days. It is also important to keep the wound clean. Rinsing should therefore be done at least twice a day and after every visit to the toilet.

After the procedure, the wound is not bandaged. However, it is wise to use sanitary pads to ensure that any blood loss is collected.

In the first four to six weeks after the labia correction, we advise against any additional exertion. You can think of heavy physical work, heavy lifting, cycling and sports. Sex is also not recommended during the recovery period.

What is the recovery like after a labia correction?

It is also important to keep the wound clean. Rinsing should therefore be done at least twice a day, for example while showering.

Will a labia correction be reimbursed?

A labia correction is a procedure that is generally not reimbursed. Only when the operation is medically necessary, some health insurers reimburse for a correction of the labia in rare cases. When considering a labia correction, it is wise to check beforehand whether your (supplementary) health insurance covers this procedure and, if so, under what conditions.

Is a labia correction safe?

Although a labia correction is a relatively simple procedure, there are risks with any surgery. Post-operative bleeding may occur. Also, the wound may become infected and/or inflamed. In some cases, scars may be or remain numb after healing.

Labia are naturally asymmetrical. Although efforts are made to achieve as symmetrical a result as possible, a completely symmetrical result after surgery cannot be guaranteed.

Who is a labia correction not suitable for?

No woman is the same, this is of course true about vaginas. Do you feel that your vagina deviates from the norm, without suffering from psychological or physical symptoms as a result? Then it is important to realise that there is no such thing as the standard vagina or the average vagina. In that case, it is wise to ask yourself whether the result of such an operation really contributes to your sense of well-being.

When the labia are not yet mature, a labia correction is not possible (yet). The operation can be performed at our premises if you are over 18 years old.

Who is a labia correction suitable for?

When your inner labia are so large that they protrude further than the outer labia, you may experience discomfort. The symptoms you experience as a result can be both physical and psychological. Physical complaints can manifest themselves in the form of pain during activities such as horse riding and other sports. Wearing tight clothes can also be annoying or even painful. Sometimes, large labia also cause pain during intercourse. Psychological complaints can manifest in the form of embarrassment, for instance. If you suffer from one or more of these complaints, a labia correction may be a solution.

What exactly is a labia correction?

In a labia correction (labia correction), the inner labia are reduced in size. This can be done for cosmetic or medical reasons. The inner labia (labia minora) are surgically reduced in size so that they fall within the outer labia (labia majora) and are thus better protected.
