Q: How long should I wait for my labiaplasty revision?
It has been a little over 3 month since my labiaplasty procedure. I am very satisfied with my final results. I underwent trim method. I had asymmetry to begin with and it wasn’t completely resolved which is why I want to undergo a revision to get as close to symmetrical appearance as possible. How long should i wait until my revision? What are your thoughts on this?
Q: What type of after care should I be doing after 3 weeks for labiaplasty?
I had the trimming technique 3 weeks ago for my Labia minora and am wondering what aftercare I should use now. I’ve had thrush so have been quite swollen. Are there ways to minimize swelling and also to minimize the bumps that are from stitching? Thank you.
A: I recommend contacting your surgeon’s office immediately. Every surgeon performs the procedure a little differently and therefore has different after care instructions. At 3 weeks post-op most of my patients are feeling great and are almost done with their initial recovery. Since you are still experiencing a lot of swelling, I think the best thing to do is go and see your surgeon for a post-op exam and see what he can recommend for you to help with your recovery process. Good luck!
Q: How many surgeons should I see for consultations?
I am very ready to have labiaplasty and have done a lot of research. I have narrowed it down to three plastic surgeons who I feel are the best options in my area. I have scheduled consultations with all three and plan on going with whoever I feel the most comfortable with, has the most experience with labiaplasty and the best outcomes. I didn’t want to just pick one surgeon without speaking with any others. Is this a good start to interview three docs? Should I interview more? Thanks in advance!
Q: What is the recovery time for Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Q: The inner lips of my vagina are visible (protruded) and outer lips are not intact. Is it normal?
A: It is normal for the inner labia to be visible, however if this appearance is bothering you, I recommend you consult with a board certified plastic surgeon to see if you are a candidate for a labiaplasty. In terms of you saying your “outer lips are not intact,” I am not quite sure what you mean by this and would to see a picture or examine you in person to give you a proper opinion.
