How Do You Wipe After Labiaplasty

After undergoing labiaplasty, it’s essential to follow your surgeon’s post-operative care instructions carefully, which may include specific guidance on hygiene and wound care. Typically, wiping after labiaplasty should be done gently to avoid causing any irritation or disruption to the healing process. Here are some general guidelines:

  1. Use gentle pressure: When wiping after using the restroom, use gentle pressure to pat the area dry rather than wiping vigorously. This helps to avoid any unnecessary friction or irritation to the surgical site.
  2. Use soft materials: Use soft, non-abrasive materials for wiping, such as soft toilet paper or moistened wipes recommended by your surgeon. Avoid using rough or scented toilet paper, as it may irritate the sensitive area.
  3. Front to back: Always wipe from front to back after using the restroom to prevent the spread of bacteria from the anal area to the surgical site.
  4. Avoid excessive rubbing: Try to minimize any rubbing or friction on the surgical area to promote healing and reduce discomfort.
  5. Follow specific instructions: Your surgeon may provide you with specific instructions for post-operative care, including how to clean and care for the surgical site. It’s essential to follow these instructions closely to ensure optimal healing and minimize the risk of complications.

If you have any concerns or questions about how to care for yourself after labiaplasty, don’t hesitate to reach out to your surgeon for guidance and clarification. They can provide personalized advice based on your specific situation and surgical procedure.
