Labiaplasty is one of the most popular procedures in my New York City practice. Many women have questions about what it will be like immediately after surgery.
Immediately after surgery, there is no pain and only minimal swelling. The majority of your discomfort will start several hours after the surgery and will occur in the first 1-2 days. Most patients do very well with ice packs, Tylenol, and sometimes stronger pain medicine.
Swelling peaks at about 2-3 days after surgery and continues to get better over the course of the next several weeks. By 1 month, you will have 80-90% of your final surgical result. A tiny amount of swelling will continue to go away over the course of the next few months. You will be able to resume exercise at 4 weeks and sex at 6 weeks.
