Itching and discomfort post labiaplasty
Thank you for sharing. This is something that often comes up during the recovery phase.This is what we normally recommend to our patients.1- keep the area clean and use a water squirt bottle to cleanse the area especiallyafter using the restroom.2- when at home, wear comfortable clothing to the area.3- Sitz bath is not a bad idea4- Either Benadryl or Hydroxyzine for the itching5- Bacitracin or neosporin to the area 2x/day
Best to follow your doctors instructions
For the perineoplasty, it's common to have swelling in the peri-anal area. Benadryl, Vaseline, ice on and off, time.
Postoperative labiaplasty/vaginoplasty itching
Regarding the hemorrhoids, if you had them before, you will see them more swollen after this procedure. However, if you did not have them before, than what you are seeing is most likely just swelling from the surgery itself and it will eventually subside. A high-fiber diet and getting off the narcotic pain medication as soon as you can will help there.

Usually, sitz baths are great, but not right after labiaplasty, unless you can soak your butt-hole without soaking your LP stitches. Also, with your surgeon's OK, buy an OTC hemorrhoidal cream or suppository WITH HYDROCORTISONE and use 2-3 X/day. Time in the "knee-chest" position will also help "roids..."
