Every doctor we have interviewed has mentioned the question below as being a potential patient’s number one concern.
How long and how bad is labiaplasty recovery?
The recovery period for labiaplasty depends on how well you follow your doctors instructions. Typically, the healing time for labiaplasty is 4 to 8 weeks:
- Week 1: very light work / no lifting heavy objects / no tampons / use estrogen cream
- Weeks 2 – 4: driving ok / no sex / no lifting heavy objects / no jogging / increase physical activity gradually
- Weeks 5 – 8: resume normal activities / if sore, wait 1 more week / sexual activity around week 6 if comfortable
