Brown is blood. Blood has an unpleasant scent.
Vaginoplasty causes small amounts of blood to collect in the vagina slowly. It appears as brown discharge with an unpleasant scent. It's normal, but an exam is required to make sure that you don't have anything else going on.
Vagina surgery and post op healing
any drainage and odor should be check by your surgeon
Swelling after #Labiaplasty is usually present for several weeks. . It’s possible that swelling can persist for two or three months Firmness of tissue can remain for 4=6 months.
Postoperative care will usually consist of sitz baths or soaking the area in warm soapy water starting approximately 2 days after a surgery. The sutures will dissolve over the course of several weeks. This will in part depend upon the #Labiaplasty technique used, the amount of brusing and they way in which your body heals.
Ice can help reduce swelling. Arnica and Bromelain may help. Direct massage may be useful
Patients return to most normal activities immediately after surgery with the exception of activities that will create direct pressure on the #vaginalregion such as certain exercise equipment and #sexualactivity. It will be necessary to refrain from these forms of physical activity, including sex, for approximately 4-6 weeks.
Generally, patients are able to walk comfortably within a few days and can return to work within a week.
Post Op Vaginoplasty - Experiencing Brownish Cream discharge with strong scent
Thank you for your question. A Vaginoplasty is known to cause small amounts of blood to collect in the
vagina over the course of healing. It appears as a brown discharge which can have
an unpleasant scent. It is quite possible
that you have Bacterial Vaginosis due to the small amount of blood in the
vagina. Increased pain associated with
discharge could be symptoms of infection. Should this be the case, an
antibiotic will treat these symptoms. I highly suggest you contact your surgeon. Wishing you the best!

Post-op Vag D/C and odor
If you are reporting these symptoms after FemiLift (a CO2 laser that resurfaces the vagina to tighten the vagina) then that simple office based therapy will NOT cause these symptoms and you would want evaluation for bacterial vaginosis. My experience with FemiLift is that there should be no abnormal vaginal D/C and if one is seen it should be gone in 3-4 days at the most.
Is discharge with an odor normal after Vaginal Rejuvenation or Vaginoplasty?
It is normal for there to be vaginal discharge after vaginal surgery for up to 6-8 weeks as the sutures are dissolving. It can be brownish, yellowish or even greenish (as described by my patients over the years) and does have a strong odor. Many of my patients have wondered if others could smell them, but no one next to you can smell you even with the discharge. Just like out throats are constantly being cleared with mucous throughout the day, our vaginas are constantly being cleaned out by the fluids we make.
You can use a perineal squirt bottle with urinating to help with hygiene, soak in a sitz bath twice a day, and you can use a mild vinegar douche once if it is unbearable, but in general douching is not recommended on a regular basis because it washes away the normal protective, good bacteria that lives there.
This discharge will go away, just be patient.
I hope this information is helpful.
