This blog is designed to inform labiaplasty patients about what they may ͞look like during the labiaplasty recovery period. I have seen patients at 5 days post-op who look like they’re 10 days post-op, and patients 10 days post-op who look 5 days. You never know.
Labiaplasty Recovery Process
The recovery process, which can include swelling (aka edema) and discoloration (aka ecchymoses), is dependent on many factors.
- Young women tend to heal faster than older
- More active early post-operative activities tend to lead to more swelling, discoloration and bleeding
- Rougher tissue handling and larger caliber sutures utilized can cuase greater edema and ecchymoses
In the end, it’s hard to predict.
Labiaplasty Recovery Photos
Following, in no particular order, are several examples of what you might expect during the labiaplasty recovery period. **Please note: I have concentrated on the more swollen/ecchymotic examples. Many, if not most, women do not get as swollen and discolored as some of the examples here. Especially those younger and those who really do rest.
May the smooth recovery gods be with you!!
