Vaginal rejuvenation is rising in popularity among women due to its ability to address common feminine issues. Labiaplasty is a popular form of vaginal rejuvenation to help remove drooping labia minora, which can cause pain and discomfort. Not only is this a safe and effective procedure, it can also help to boost many women’s confidence. Read on for some common questions that women have about labiaplasty surgery recovery.

Are there any tips to quicken the healing process?

Yes! Best sure to minimize activity right after surgery. Any swelling that occurs can be treated with cold compresses, and any itching and discomfort can be addressed with witch hazel cooling pads. However, be sure to discuss these options with your doctor to be sure they are O.K. with them.

How long will swelling and itching last?

In most cases, swelling will peak at 2-3 days and then gradually subside over time. Itching is common in the first week while healing it takin place. If itching persists for a longer amount of time, be sure to speak with your surgeon, as it could be the result of an allergic reaction or yeast infection.

Is there downtime needed?

Following a labiaplasty, most women return to their fitness routines after 2-4 weeks. It can take 6-8 weeks for scars to become strong enough to return to sexual intercourse, so be sure to check with your doctor first.
