What is recovery like after labiaplasty?

Most patients are able to be up and about the afternoon of the day of their surgery. During the first 24 - 48 hours post surgery, patients should place ice packs or other frozen items, such as frozen peas, on their incisions to minimize any swelling and bruising they may be experiencing. Patients are encouraged to return to routine tasks as long as they are not experiencing any irritation or pressure at the incision sites. Loose clothing and cotton underwear (“granny panties”) are mandatory. By 72 hours after your surgery, you may resume to regular activities while making sure there is minimal friction to the labia. Patients may drive the next day after their surgery, as long as they are not taking any prescription pain medications or muscle relaxers. Patients may return to work within 2-3 days as long as there is no rigorous physical activity involved. The stitches from the surgery usually dissolve by the 6 week follow-up appointment. During the 6 week recovery, patients are on pelvic rest (no intercourse or tampons) and should avoid bath tubs, hot tubs or any swimming. Rigorous exercise, cycling, horseback riding, jet skis, motorcycles and four wheelers should be avoided during the recovery period.
