How Long Does Labiaplasty Take To Fully Heal

Healing after labiaplasty typically takes 3 months, although you may be able to resume some activities sooner. Here’s a breakdown of the healing timeline:

  • Weeks 1-2: You may experience swelling, discomfort, and some pain. It’s best to rest and avoid strenuous activities during this time.

  • Weeks 3-6: The swelling should start to go down, and you may be able to resume some light activities, such as walking and swimming. You should still avoid sexual activity and strenuous exercise.

  • Weeks 7-12: Most of the swelling should be gone, and you should be able to resume most activities, including sexual activity. However, it may take up to 6 months for the final results of the surgery to be visible.

It’s important to remember that everyone heals at their own pace. Be sure to follow your doctor’s instructions carefully and don’t hesitate to reach out to them if you have any concerns.

Here are some additional things to keep in mind about labiaplasty recovery:

  • You may experience some changes in sensation after surgery. This is normal and should improve over time.
  • You may develop scar tissue. This is usually minimal and not very noticeable.
  • It’s important to maintain good hygiene after surgery to help prevent infection.

If you’re considering labiaplasty, it’s important to talk to a board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss your individual needs and expectations.
