Possible revision procedures
Effective repair of the scarring often requires more than one procedure. Dr. Vermeulen carefully assesses the situation and uses various techniques to achieve the desired result.
The techniques used include:
- Injection with your own tissue (lipofilling)
- Removal of part of the labia minora (Wedge-technic)
- Labia minora reconstruction
If there is still too much tissue in the clitoral hood, the tissue can be loosened and folded back over the scar tissue that has formed on the labia minora. This makes the vulva pain-free once again and aesthetically appealing.
Anyone who undergoes revision surgery has to prepare themselves as best as possible for the procedure. Essential parts of the preparation include stopping smoking and stopping use of recreational drugs.
