How should you prepare for labiaplasty surgery in Miami? Should you buy any special items, ahead of time? Here is what to expect during labiaplasty recovery.
Your labia is relatively thin, fragile and sensitive. Therefore, you will need to be very careful during recovery. The goal for the first 24 to 48 hours is to minimize swelling and bleeding. This body sculpting procedure will deliver the best results when you optimize healing. Apply ice pro-actively. You should limit your activity, some suggest that you take the first week off from work and minimize routines that increase blood flow. When you are busy, your blood flow increases, which could increase the chances of bleeding. Rent some good movies, ahead-of-time and get out the popcorn. Our board certified plastic surgeons can prescribe pain and anti-inflammatory medications to assist with your labiaplasty healing.
Labiaplasty Recovery Three Week Threshold
You could probably return to a sitting desk job after one week. Plastic surgeons are concerned with too much friction in your labia, so you should take it easy for the first three weeks. For the first couple of weeks, you might feel some itching from the absorbable sutures. Between two to three weeks, we will remove any sutures that have not been absorbed by your body. Most wounds are healed pretty nicely around three weeks and you can return to your low impact routines. Also, post Miami labiaplasty surgery scar massage might help.
Labiaplasty Recovery Post-Operative Checkup
It is important to note that all women will heal differently. We want you to continually monitor your labiaplasty healing. Be careful. We will schedule frequent post-operative checkups. Generally, we want you to avoid strenuous activity for up to six weeks. After six weeks, you might still have some tenderness, but you can return to normal activity. We suggest that you wait until eight weeks before bicycling, workouts or resumption of your love life. Most people see a complete return to normalcy at about six months or so after labiaplasty surgery. Once again everyone is different. We hope to make your labiaplasty healing proceed in the best way possible. We will remind you to minimize your activity, it is probably a good time to use your sick or vacation days off. We will also address any of your lingering concerns during your labiaplasty recovery post-operative checkups.
