By 72 hours you may resume regular activities, making sure there is minimal friction to the labia, however, we encourage minimal activities the first week after surgery whenever possible. Patients may drive at any time as long as they are not taking narcotics. Patients may return to work within 3 to 5 days as long as rigorous physical activity is avoided. The stitches will usually dissolve by the 6-week follow-up appointment. During the 6 week recovery, patients are on pelvic rest meaning no tampons, douching or sexual relations of any kind. Please be aware that bath tubs, hot tubs, swimming (pools, lakes, or ocean), exercise, cycling, dancing, skiing, horseback riding, jet skis, motorcycles, etc. should be avoided during the recovery period. You will be allowed to do walking exercise after your 2-week follow-up visit.
A complete list of post-operative instructions will be given to you in your surgery packet at your pre-operative appointment.
