I'm currently in my early 20's. This has been a problem for me for years but only started looking into it recently. This surgery was not for cosmetic reasons at all. It has been very uncomfortable to live with. I finally went to my gyno and they right away suggested labiaplasty and surgery was scheduled for the week after. It all happened very fast
I had my labiaplasty done Monday around 12pm. I am on my 3rd day post op and am very uncomfortable. I'm wearing pads, putting on some antibiotic ointment and cleaning with a water squirter. I'm trying not to look down there because it looks discusting but I'm very worried that the surgery didn't work for me.

My problem before the surgery was that my labia stuck out and was VERY uncomfortable against my underwear among many other things. But I still feel my labia touching my underwear. It Seems like the right side is fine and not sticking out. But my left side does not seem to be better :-(. I'm very uncomfortable and had to take time off I work. I'm taking pain killers, ibuprofen, as Advil.

It's been a hard week for me because I only told my sister and stayed with her the first night. Now I am back home and have to lie about why I'm in my bed all day. It's been hard for me I lie to everyone, but it's personal, and I'm embarrassed about it. I really hope his surgery was worth it, I hope I don't have to go through a revision, but from what it looks/feels like it half of my Labia is still very uncomfortable and sticking out

Went to my doc today because I was so worried about the swelling. She said the left side has swelled up a lot more than the right but no infection and I just have to wait it out. I'm still really nervous for the final result. I hope the swelling goes down. My labia is still sticking out and it is so uncomfortable

Stitch near labia?

When I was putting on my ointment I noticed there is a stitch poking basically on my clitoris.... I sure hope they disolve. And I hope this surgery didn't effect my clitoris

5 days post op

I'm definitely in a lot of pain today. It's not getting worse, but also doesn't seem to be better, I'm just used to the pain now. I saw my gynecologist who did the surrey and she said it didn't look infected but that there was a lot of tissue damage and I'm bruising and swelling a lot. She says to just hang in there......
I'm still a little worried about the stitch near my clitoris but I won't mess with anything

Seems to look better.

1 week since surgery

I had a really bad night last night. Sharp pains, stinging, and some itching. Not fun. Hoping it get betters soon. When do these dang stitches disolve

8 days.. A little worried

I can't see much improvement.
I am still worried about my clitoris area and how I can feel a stitch in that area
Another thing I'm concerned about, my left labia you can see clearly but my right one hiding. I can barely feel it. You can't see my right labia when I don't part my outer lips. I took two pictures.
My right labia also has some spotting don't know if it's blood or bruises

Spots?

It almost seems like my left labia and clit are all together, but my right labia is just kind of by itself

Things feel better seem to look a little weird. Seems like my left labia is connected to my clitoris and my right labia is just teeny and by itself. You can't even see it if I don't spread my area out.
Also still have that darn stitch in my clitoris. I feel like my clitoris is looking a little weird.

2 weeks is the true recovery time!!! About Friday I felt a lot better. No more pain. No more meds.

One thing I am a little upset about is that she completely took off my right labia. There isn't even a little flab. The stitches just seem to run along the inside of my labia majora now.
Oh well, better than it was before. I'm just hoping it won't be noticed by future partners :-0

Almost 3 weeks post op

I have a stitch sticking out near my clit that hurts very badly if it's touched sometimes

Also my clit seems to feel larger than before. Like it almost seems to be poking out.
