Does Labiaplasty Smell

Before surgery:

  • In some cases, larger labia can make it harder to maintain proper hygiene, potentially leading to odors. Labiaplasty can address this concern by reducing the labia size, making cleaning easier.

During surgery:

  • During the procedure, antiseptic solutions are used to minimize the risk of infection. Any odor would likely be associated with these sterile solutions and shouldn’t persist.

After surgery:

  • Some light discharge and crusting around the incisions are normal during healing. This might have a slightly metallic or sterile smell, but it shouldn’t be strong or foul.
  • Following proper hygiene practices during recovery is crucial to prevent infection and avoid any unpleasant odors.

However, it’s important to remember:

  • Every individual heals differently, and there can be variations in what’s considered normal.
  • If you experience any strong, foul, or unusual odor after surgery, it’s essential to consult your doctor immediately. This could be a sign of infection, which requires prompt medical attention.
