Post-Op Swelling and Lumps
Swelling can persist for several months and will gradually improve and will look better at three months, six months, and even one year. Frequently the pubic area and the scrotal and penis area for men can become very swollen and discolored during the first two weeks due to gravity as this is the lowest area for swelling to accumulate.
If you continue having any concerns as the healing process moves along you should visit your surgeon again soon and have the area examined to see if it is still improving slowly. There is always a chance that swelling can take up to 18 months to completely go away, so you still have some time.
