Vaginoplasty is an outpatient surgery that takes about one hour to complete. After the patient is fully awake from the anesthesia, she can go home and rest. For the first two days, there will be some kind of discomfort. If the patient feels pain, she can take a pain killer medicine, which will be prescribed by our doctor.
Cosmetic Gynecologist Dr. Jack Ayoub is the founder of The Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation of Virginia will prescribe an antibiotic, which will need to be taken before the surgery, that’s because in some cases, there is a very slim chance for infection. He will also recommend using an ice pack in the first 24-72 hours to help decrease swelling.
On average, after 3 – 5 days, the patient will be able to go back to work. Dr. Ayoub recommends adding some light physical activity slowly, and as the patient start feeling better, they will be able to resume her regular daily activities. Heavy lifting or exhausting exercise should wait until at least 3 weeks after the surgery.
As weeks go by, the redness and swelling will go away and the patient will start feeling normal again, says Dr. Ayoub. In 6 weeks, patient will be ready to resume normal sexual activities, he added.
