That said, click on the link below for general details about RECOVERY from my blog; also explore the Genital Cosmetic Surgery drop-down for muc more interesting stuff, including a Video where I discuss recovery...
GENERALLY, you should wait 1-2 weeks before going back to sedentary work, 3 weeks before going back to vigorous work, and 1 month before heavy lifting, swimming, cycling, heavy lifting (just an estimate...)

Patients return to most normal activities immediately after surgery with the exception of activities that will create direct pressure on the area, such as certain exercise equipment and sexual activity. It will be necessary to refrain from these forms of physical activity, including sex, for approximately 4-6 weeks.
Postoperative care will usually consist of sitz baths or soaking the area in warm soapy water starting approximately 2 days after a surgery. The sutures will dissolve over the course of several weeks. Swelling can persist for two or three months and ice can reduce swelling.
