The Knowledge and Care Centre for Gender Dysphoria of the VU Medical Centre treats patients with gender dysphoria (transgender people). Transgender people feel that their birth gender does not fit with the gender they experience and (want to) express. Before the operation for gender change can take place, the areas must be permanently de-haired. Through our years of experience with hair removal, we have a partnership with the vumc’s gender team for the removal of transgender people.
When treating a male-to-female transgender, it is necessary that the hair of part of the genitals is permanently removed before the procedure. It’s about the part that’s used to create female genitalia. Hair that remains in the constructed vagina later gives a lot of discomfort. After surgery, however, the vagina is no longer accessible for laser or electrical epilation. Therefore, the hair removal is done before the operation.
In the treatment of a female-to-male transgender, it is necessary to debristle the donor place, which is used to create a penis and a urethra (urethra) before the procedure.

We work on reference from the gender team of the VUmc. With this medical center we have a contract regarding the reimbursement for the hair removal of the genital or donor area.
The compensation for hair removal of the face is done through health insurance. This fee must be requested in advance.
