My labia minora have been asymmetrical with one...
My labia minora have been asymmetrical with one side protruding since puberty, causing me to be self conscious when I was younger, and always causing me discomfort with exercising and when wearing certain clothing. Only a month out from a unilateral labiaplasty with clitoral dehooding, I have noticed a difference even with just walking, not having to readjust throughout the day, and a new confidence when looking in the mirror. Though I would not recommend returning to work after only 5 days, I never needed more than Tylenol, ice and rest for comfort during recovery.
Fed up and feeling regret
So...9 weeks out and still having swelling, tenderness and sutures spitting out for the last month. I was able to remove some myself, but had to return for the doctor to remove some as seeing and reaching is not from the best angle. If I'd knownthat this was a possibility, being sensitive to sutures, I think I would rather have gone with the amputation method and external sutures. This was supposed to have less scarring, but now with these craters and holes still open, I'm wishing I'd have left well enough alone...wondering when this will ever end :(
3 months later
After removing what turned out to be the last internal suture causing irritation, things have settled down. Still having some slight discomfort to the area and 3 "holes" where sutures erupted that I'm not sure will ever close up. Overall the results are acceptable.
