You seem to be healing normally. The bluish discoloration you are seeing at the anterior labia is most likely just bruising and should subside within a week or so. be sure to keep your surgeon updates with your progress
Thank you for sharing. From a surgical standpoint it does look like you're healing correctly. There is no evidence of suture separation and or infection.
Bruising and swelling is normal and should reside rather quickly.
Make sure to follow all post op orders from your surgeon.

Is this healing properly?
Thank you for sharing your question and photographs. Though you have some mild swelling and bruising your incision lines appear intact and appropriate for only 4 days after surgery. Maintain close follow up with your surgeon for any questions or concerns.
Labiaplasty 4 days post op
It appears that all is healing well but of course you need to sit back and wait until the swelling goes down. There doesn't appear to be evidence of infection. If you continued to be bothered by the healing or are worried I encourage you to call your surgeons
