Labiaplasty Post-Op Instructions

Smiling Woman Johns Creek GAOver the years, the genitalia of a woman goes through changes that are caused by a variety of things like childbearing, hormonal fluctuations and just simply getting older.

Dr. Myla Bennet, our Johns Creek plastic surgeon can perform a labiaplasty, which is a surgical procedure that improves the aesthetics and shape of the female genitalia.

After undergoing this procedure there will be some guidelines that you should follow. Making sure to follow the recommendations below will help ensure that you have a smooth and proper recovery.

Rest and Don’t Over Exert Yourself
For the first few days after having a labioplasty, it’s important to get your rest. Don’t do any unnecessary exertion, swimming, excessive walking, or sitting for too long. When resting it’s best to lay on your back and not sit directly on the treatment area. Sexual intercourse may be resumed after four weeks, as can exercise and straddle activities like cycling.

Caring for The Surgical Site
For 10 days post-op gently wash the incision area each time you use the restroom. Apply the recommended ointment to the sutures and place a piece of gauze between your labia. Do not take a bath but rather take a shower, and pat your labia dry, don’t rub it. Wearing loose cotton underwear is recommended for four weeks.

Take Your Medications
If you were given an antibiotic (whether it’s a topical that you apply directly to the area, of a pill that you swallow) make sure to take it as recommended to prevent infection.

Having some discomfort after your labiaplasty is to be expected. Usually, we prescribe you a specific medication to help. Also, placing an ice pack on the area is useful for reducing pain, swelling, and inflammation.

Dangerous Side Effects
If you have any of the following side effects, you should seek medical attention:

  • Increased swelling or bruising
  • Swelling and redness persist after a few days
  • Increased redness along the incision
  • Pain that isn’t relieved by medication
  • Yellowish or greenish drainage from the incision or a foul odor
  • Bleeding from the incisions that is difficult to control with light pressure
  • Loss of feeling or motion of the surgical area

Dr. Bennett is absolutely amazing! From the very beginning, I felt incredibly comfortable and at home. She is highly skilled and top notch with everything she does. The results of my liposuction were incredible and my skin has noticeably been transformed by Dr. Bennett's facials and skincare line. She is a highly skilled, extraordinarily gifted doctor with the most beautiful spirit and genuinely cares about each one of her patients. I give Dr. Bennett and her staff my highest recommendation. Her staff is always kind, courteous and professional.

Love the family like environment. My experience with the doctor and everyone in the office began with the follow up phone call from the online inquiry. Felt like I have known each of them for years. They made my experience so much easier than I thought it would have been. Just being in the office is a comforting beginning to my procedures. With the procedures that I did have I am quickly seeing some results. I would definitely recommend anyone to this establishment.

Let me first say that this place is so cute! The ambience is amazing. Amanda and her staff are extremely friendly, attentive and professional. Chanel performed a hydra facial with light therapy and I immediately saw results. I have been receiving compliments on my skin daily and I give all credit to Dr. Myla’s PrettyRX skincare line! Try Chanel and Dr. Myla out, you won’t regret it! Plus there’s plenty of free parking!

The Royal Treatment! From the moment you walk in the staff make you feel special. The Hydrafacial was beyond amazing and far exceeded my expectations. I'm still glowing! Chanel who did my facial was a complete joy, knowledgeable and very professional. Dr. Myla is a true Boss lady and rockstar physician. I can't wait to book my next appointment.

Dr. Myla Bennett is great. I found her on Instagram! After seeing many of her cases, I decided to make an appointment for a virtual consultation. I'm in NH where we don't have plastic surgeons that specialize in ethnic skin. Making that appointment was the best decision ever. She developed a regimen for me that I followed diligently. I never had horrible skin but Dr. Myla definitely put my skin on another level. I get compliments all the time...and I NEVER wear makeup. Her products are great too! Definitely give Dr. Myla a call, and don't hesitate if you are outside of GA.

Ederra Bella is the best! Dr. Myla is very knowledgeable and she goes well beyond the call of duty to make sure her patients are well-informed. The staff is very friendly and the second you walk into the office, you immediately feel like you’re part of the family. I have and will continue referring Ederra Bella for anyone seeking services related to skin care and plastic surgery. I do want to add, Dr. Myla has just launched her skin care line, PrettyRx and it is absolutely amazing. I’ve gotten so many compliments, from random people I see during the day to make-up and skin professionals, telling me about how great my skin is. The products are light, gentle and, most importantly, they work! If you want clear, pretty and youthful skin, PrettyRx is what you need.

Dr. Myla, is absolutely amazing, I trust her with my life. I had surgery and it ended up being two surgeries because of a issue she identified and made sure it got taken care of. Dr. Myla goes above and beyond to make her clients feel beautiful and important. I called and text her and she always answered and assisted with any questions, no matter the time. I would recommend her for any services, because she is very professional and knows her stuff. Thank you and your team Dr. Myla, for making me preserve my pretty!.
