Your consultant will advise you how long it will take for your labia to heal after labiaplasty surgery and provide you with an individual aftercare plan. Typically, you can expect to heal relatively quickly.
After your labiaplasty you will be advised to get moving as soon as possible. Labiaplasty is performed as a day-case surgery at Kat & Co, meaning that you will be able to go home on the same day as your procedure, whether you choose twilight or local anaesthetic.
You are likely to experience some minor pain, discomfort and swelling. Painkillers will be prescribed to help relieve this, and swelling will usually settle within the first few weeks.
We recommend you take a week off work to recover, and that you return to normal activities after two weeks, light jogging after four weeks, and all activities after six weeks.
You will also have a follow up appointment 1 week after surgery to change your dressings and check that you are recovery well, and then another follow up after 3 months to assess the results of your surgery.
The labia is a very sensitive area with a lot of nerve endings. Normally, a labiaplasty will not result in decreased sensitivity unless nerve damage occurs as a complication during the procedure.
