Sex too Soon after Vaginal Rejuvenation = Trouble
It takes six weeks minimum for a vaginoplasty to heal. Any surgeon with experience knows this. Sex prior to this is a poor decision because the scar will fall apart as you have just described. You received bad advice. Revision will be needed once you heal.
Healing Following Your Vaginal Rejuvenation Procedure
Also, due to the nature of the tissue in the labial area it is not unusual to have unequal amounts of swelling which generally should improve and become more symmetric over several weeks.
We recommend to our patients that they wait six to eight weeks before resuming physical activity and sexual
#intercourse. If you had a #vaginoplasty it is also recommended that some stretching exercises of the surgical site start at six weeks to soften any scarring that may occur and to make the sexual experience more comfortable after surgery. This stretching exercise is not needed if you had a labiaplasty alone.
If you have certain concerns about the #healing process, it is recommended to call your board-certified surgeon or their medical staff and discuss those #concerns.

When can I have sex after perineoplasty/vaginoplasty? What to do if the incision opens?
Yes, you may decide you wish a revision after all is completely healed (up to you...) If indeed your doctor did tell you it was OK to have sex at 4 weeks, especially if he/she did so without an exam, that doc has some culpability, and should perform the re-repair gratis, or for a very tiny fee. If, however, you did this without an OK from your doc, you are on your own with respect to the fee for re-repair.
That must have been scary for both you ans your partner! Sorry for the grief..!
