After Labiaplasty

After Labiaplasty

The postoperative period of labiaplasty is important. Resting at home for 2-3 days, changing your dressings regularly, being careful about your diet and the hygiene of the genital area are the precautions you should take. After the operation, bleeding can be observed in the form of slight leakage for a few days, itching can be felt in the evening, and edema can last for a few weeks. Complaints will decrease over time.

Your questions about the postoperative period of labiaplasty:

When Will My Surgical Site Heal After Labiaplasty?

It is important to rest at home for 3 days after labioplasty. Edema will probably resolve within a few weeks, the sutures will fall off spontaneously within 20 days, and you will be able to return to all your previous activities after a month.

What Will the Postoperative Care Be After Labiaplasty?

You should definitely consult your doctor about the postoperative care of labiaplasty. Generally, dressings with antibiotic creams or solutions are recommended for a period of 7-10 days. In addition, it is important to be careful about your toilet hygiene, and to clean the genital area from front to back. There is no harm in washing the wound with soap or water.

Taking Bath After Labiaplasty

You can take a standing shower 3 days after labiaplasty. Before 3 days, excessive water contact with the genital area should be avoided, but there is no harm in washing the rest of the body.

Is Ice Application Needed After Labiaplasty?

It is important to apply ice for 3 days after labiaplasty to prevent bleeding, relieve the pain, and resolve the edema. Applying ice for a longer period of time delays wound healing.

When Will the Sutures Fall Off After Labiaplasty?

Sutures fall off spontaneously 20 days after the labiaplasty operations performed by us. There is no need to remove them.

Does labiaplasty leave surgical scars?

When performed with the right technique, it leaves no scar on the surgical site. However, your wound healing speed is important in this regard.

When the Patient Will be Able to Have Sexual Intercourse After Labiaplasty?

Sexual intercourse is allowed one month after Labiaplasty.

How Many Days Does it Take for Edema to Resolve After Labiaplasty?

It resolves within a week on average. This period could be shorter or longer depending on the extent of the labiaplasty operation.

Do Vaginal Infections Decrease After Labiaplasty?

Vaginal infections caused by many factors. Moisture and frequent irritation of the genital area due to wide and wrinkled lips are also among the causes of infection. Labiaplasty operations generally reduce recurrent vaginal fungal infections and other vaginal infections. However, your recurrent vaginitis may be caused by different factors.

How Many Days Should I Change Dressings After Labiaplasty?

In general, it is useful to change dressings for a period of 7 to 10 days.

Do I Have A Loss Of Sensation After Labiaplasty?

No. When done with the right technique, patients never experience loss of sensation after labiaplasty. On the contrary, sexual pleasure and arousal may increase when the clitoral hood is thinned. In addition, aesthetically nicer genital appearance increases self-confidence and concentration during sexual intercourse.

When Can I Have Laser Epilation After Labiaplasty?

There is no harm in having laser epilation 3 weeks after the operation.

How Will The Appearance Be After Labiaplasty?

The appearance will change rapidly depending on the type of the operation and your wound healing condition. Once the new aesthetic appearance fully develops, you will soon forget its previous appearance.
