Recovery Time for Vaginal Plastic Surgeries

Learn about the recovery time for vaginal plastic surgeries from plastic surgeon Robert J. Morin, M.D. in this Howcast video.


We're discussing the recovery time for vaginal plastic surgery procedures. Again, the two main procedures performed on the vagina by plastic surgeons include - Labiaplasty, where we contour the external genitalia and Vaginoplasty, where we tighten the walls of the vagina and tighten the vaginal canal. 

The Vaginoplasty is a little bit more invasive and complicated and it get's closer to some very important internal anatomic structures. Therefore, the general recommendation is to wait approximately six weeks before engaging in any sort of activity that could potentially injure the surgical repair. For Labiaplasty the healing is a little bit quicker and return to normal activity can often happen at somewhere around 4 weeks.

These numbers obviously depend on perfect end healing and no complications so your specific surgeon would be the best person to tell you when you could begin to engage in certain activities.
