You must take antibiotic to protect against a post-operative infection, anti-inflammatory drug to lessen the wound pain and acetaminophen drug, as prescribed by Dr. Vitasna, especially the antibiotic which should be wholly completed.
Within the first 24 hours after the surgery, applying a cold pack (s) to the surgical site to decrease the swelling. A cold pack with ice in a plastic bag is not recommended because the moisture and steam from the plastic bag may potentially cause inflammation and infection.
Within 1-2 days of the Labia Minora Reduction procedure, you should not take a shower which may potentially cause infection ( –perhaps rub the body dry–). Clean the wound with antiseptic daily in the morning and before bedtime, then using warm dryer for 10 minutes around the surgical wound to let it heal faster.
After 1-2 days of the Labia Minora Reduction procedure, you are allowed to take a shower. You should clean the wound with antiseptic daily after you took a shower in the morning and before bedtime, then using warm dryer for 10 minutes around the surgical wound to let it heal faster for 1 week.
Cleaning the surgical wound after urinary excretion may be done with sanitary wipes (-Do not use the water-) and after fecal excretion done using water and toweling gently.
You may experience light reddish bleeding out of the vagina in around 2-3 days after the procedure, and you should use a sanitary napkin to monitor the bleeding. In case of excessive bleeding or reddish blood clot, swollen wound and high fever, please contact the Center for suggestions or come to see Dr. Vitasna for the surgical wound examination.
You should try to avoid moisture around the surgical wound to let it heal faster, refrain from soaking in warm water, in bath tub, swimming in the pool and sexual intercourse for 4 weeks after the procedure.
