Labiaplasty: Postoperative Healing
Thank you for your question. Swelling is common after labiaplasty with the amount dependent in part based on the time since surgery. I would recommend contacting the surgeon who performed the original surgery to evaluate your current condition.
Best of luck.

Thank you for sharing your photo. You appear to have normal post operative swelling and your incision lines are intact. There is no photographic evidence of infection, but this is a clinical diagnosis that can only be made in person. Every plastic surgeon has their own protocol- I would check in with yours to talk through your concerns as well as get some recommendations for the itching. Dilute vinegar soaks, sitz baths, hydrocortisone cream, and sometimes even oral steroids can all be helpful, but you'll want to run these by your surgeon. Congratulations and best wishes, Dr. Meghan Nadeau, Seattle, WA
