How Soon Can You Walk After Labiaplasty

Walking after labiaplasty is an important part of the recovery process, as it helps to improve circulation and reduce the risk of blood clots. However, it is important to start slowly and gradually increase your activity level as your body heals.

In general, most women can start walking short distances around the house as soon as the day after surgery. However, it is important to listen to your body and rest when you are tired. You should also avoid any activities that cause pain or discomfort.

Here are some tips for walking after labiaplasty:

  • Start slowly and gradually increase the distance and duration of your walks as you feel able.
  • Listen to your body and rest when you are tired.
  • Avoid any activities that cause pain or discomfort.
  • Wear loose-fitting clothing that will not irritate your incisions.
  • Use ice packs to reduce swelling and pain.
  • Keep your incisions clean and dry.

Most women are able to return to their normal activities, including exercise, within 4-6 weeks after surgery. However, it is important to talk to your doctor about your specific recovery timeline.

Here are some additional things to keep in mind:

  • You may experience some swelling and bruising after surgery. This is normal and should improve within a few days.
  • You may also experience some pain or discomfort. This can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.
  • It is important to keep your incisions clean and dry. You can do this by showering or bathing daily.
  • Avoid using tampons or douches for at least 6 weeks after surgery.
  • You should also avoid sexual activity for at least 6 weeks after surgery.
