4 weeks post op, some advices:

Thank you very much for sharing your concerns with us.At this point (4 weeks post-po) the swelling have to be minimal.
To reduce it, I recommend you perform daily lymphatic drainage massage therapy over the abdomen and wear a postoperative girdle from thigh to the breasts.
Kind regards,

Spanks or a waist girdle

The swelling will probably persist for a couple of month or so.  The slowest area for the swelling to leave is the lower abdomen, just over the incision site.

it is normal to still be swollen. I usually recommend a spanks or a girdle that covers your abdomen as well as your vaginal area
