What Is the Recovery from Labiaplasty Like?
One of the most common questions that Appleton and Green Bay patients ask during their consultation is what they can expect during their recovery. As a woman, mother, and surgeon, Dr. Sauerhammer has particular insight into the experience following labiaplasty.
Dr. Sauerhammer will perform your labiaplasty under general anesthesia and apply a long-lasting local anesthetic to help with post-operative discomfort. Applying ice to the area and using the medications we prescribe should help you with discomfort following your surgery.
Most of our patients describe the recovery as similar to their recuperation after having a baby. Expect to take six weeks to heal, with a higher degree of soreness over the first three days and improvement in each subsequent week. Swelling should subside within one month. Patients can resume having sex after the six-week recovery.
