Pain after Vaginoplasty and Labiaplasty

A full vaginoplasty with tightening of the inner and outer vaginal muscles may produce discomfort related to muscle tension, natural inflammation around sutures, and constipation - especially if you are taking narcotic painkillers. Switching to non-narcotics, avoiding prolonged standing or walkiing, eating foods which are easily digested, and taking muscle relaxants are recommended to improve comfort. Of course, it is always a good idea to contact your surgeon to make sure that other causes of discomfort are not being overlooked.

Healing After Labiaplasty And Vainalplasty

Healing is variable and pain always a difficult issue to pin point. The first several weeks are always the most difficult.

Warm sitz bath with Epsom salts should help. Ask your doctor about topical meds to ease the discomfort.
