Persistent clitoral hood swelling
The vulva does tend to swell rather intensely after surgery but resolves universally. It however can take as long as 6+ months so remain patient and follow your surgeons recommendations. Glad to help.

Swellingn after hood reduction/labiaplasty
When standard techniques are used, swelling, as impressive as it may be, will subside with time. Unfortunately no one can predict how long that will take. Be patient and hope for the best. And realize that if things do not heal to your satisfaction, revisions can be done but also realize that your swelling is more than average and that the marked swelling can again develop.
Clitoral hood swelling
I would expect your clitoral hood swelling to go down considerably. However, it can take up to six months. If it remains too large, it can be reduced.
Labiaplasty swelling after surgery
Clitoral hood swelling is normal after labiaplasty. Our office specializes in labiaplasty surgery and we offer a BruiseFighter supplement to reduce swelling in the area after surgery.
