If you're considering labiaplasty, you may have questions about recovery. Recovery time can vary depending on the extent of the surgery and other factors, but you can expect to experience some discomfort, swelling, and bruising in the area. Dr. Jukes will provide specific instructions on how to care for the surgical site and when you can resume normal activities.
Tips For A Smooth Recovery
After your labiaplasty procedure, it's essential to rest and take it easy for the first few days. You should avoid strenuous activity, such as exercise, for at least a week. You may also need to take time off work to allow your body to heal correctly.
It's important to keep the surgical area clean to prevent infection. You should avoid using soap on the area and instead use a gentle cleanser recommended by Dr. Jukes. You may also need a sanitary pad to absorb any discharge and keep the site dry.
