Hi,

The swelling from a labiaplasty should mostly be gone at 3 weeks. The outer stitches should have dissolved by then as well. Deeper internal stitches can take up to 3 months to dissolve.It is a llittle early to be excessively concerned. The pain should improve dramatically in the next couple of weeks. The most important advice that I can offer is to call your doctor and have him check on you to make sure that he thinks everything is going ok. Be patient and realize also that asymmetries can be corrected after everything heals.
