Are the Bumps at the Top of my Labia Minora Normal Post Op 3 Weeks?

I had my surgery 3 weeks ago. I had, vagina rejuvenation, labia minora and clitoral hood reduction. Is this swelling or not? All of the rest of my swelling has seemed to subside.

Too early to tell

you are still in the healing phase and unevenness and bumpiness will most likely resolve over the next 2-3 months. however, if you are concerned, you should see your surgeon in the next several weeks. however, there is no rush as he/she will most likely tell you to give the healing more time.

Labiaplasty - post op

The bumps may be sutures or swollen glands.  It is difficult to tell without a good in person exam.  I recommend a return to the surgeon for better advice.  Best Wishes!!

Bumps on your labia

Without photos, its hard to understand what you mean by 'bumps'.  Since your are in your acute recovery, best to let your surgeon know of your concerns as your surgeon should be able to tell you exactly what it is.
