2.5 weeks post labiaplasty
Two weeks is still in the immediate post operative time frame and far too early to make a judgement about the ultimate result. Also, remember that some surface irregularities is normal for the anatomy is this area and not abnormal. Best wishes!

Post-Op Healing for Labiaplasty
Ice can help reduce swelling. Arnica and Bromelain may help. Direct massage may be useful as well. It sounds like you can likely work to calm your swelling and discomfort for a little more time while the healing process continues. I would recommend if after a couple more weeks you still feel pain or discomfort you should schedule a live appointment with your surgeon to have the healing progress evaluated in person. Best of luck to you!

Thank you for your question and photographs.As you are still fairly early on in your recovery, I would give yourself some more time to heal before judging your results. It takes at least 4-6 weeks for swelling to fully go down for the labia to shrink in size. Over this six week period, you results will still change slightly. If after six weeks you are still unhappy with your results, I would consult your doctor for a revision or seek another board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in labiaplasty. I hope this helps.
Best of luck in your recovery!

Clitoral Hood: Postoperatively
Thank you for your question and sharing your photographs. Based on your description and photographs, I am not clear if you had a labiaplasty and/or clitoral hood reduction. The one thing to keep in mind is to remember that it takes several weeks for the swelling to resolve and several months to see the final results. At that time, one can then be evaluated to determine if a secondary operation is necessary. If you continue to be disappointed, I would recommend seeking the opinion of an experienced genital surgeon to determine if a clitoroplasty is indicated.
Best of luck.
