How Bad Is Pain After Labiaplasty

Generally, pain after labiaplasty is considered moderate and manageable. Most patients experience the most discomfort in the first few days after surgery, with pain gradually subsiding within a week or two. However, everyone heals at their own pace, and some individuals may experience pain for a longer period.

Here are some key points to remember about pain after labiaplasty:

  • Pain is typically managed with medication: Your doctor will prescribe pain medication to help you manage discomfort during your recovery. Over-the-counter pain relievers may also be recommended.
  • Swelling and bruising are common: These can contribute to pain and discomfort, but they usually resolve within a few weeks.
  • Other symptoms like itching and tenderness are also common: These are typically mild and temporary.
  • Pain management strategies can help: Applying ice packs, wearing loose clothing, and avoiding strenuous activity can all help to reduce pain and discomfort.

It’s important to discuss any concerns you have about pain with your doctor. They can provide personalized advice and ensure you have the information and support you need for a comfortable recovery.
