Childbirth trauma to labia minora
Trauma to the labia is extremely variable in location and extent. See your gynecologist to determine the degree of damage. Some repairs warrant reconstruction, others warrant excision. No way to tell without an exam.
What To Do About Labia Tear after Childbirth?
I'm sorry to hear about the tear. The tissues will need time to heal, but if the tear doesn't heal well after 6 months, consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon or gynecologist who does labiaplasty surgery and who has good before-and-after photos. He/she can examine you and determine the best approach. For best cosmetic results, you might have to consider going outside the NHS, depending on the results you see.

Torn inner labium after childbirth
I have repaired many women with torn labia after childbirth, but you need to wait at least five months after delivery. This delay will enable your tissues to heal. I repair it by excising the tear similar to a wedge labiaplasty, which I invented twenty years ago. The procedure takes about an hour is performed by a well experienced surgeon in this technique.
Torn Inner Labia after Childbirth. Yes, it can be fixed
Thank you for your question.
You are very early in the healing process. This area takes time. You don't need to feel rushed. You may need 3-6 months of healing or longer.
To be sure, see two or more board-certified plastic surgeons in your area for a full and complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have surgery.
I hope this helps.
