labial reduction complications  October 3, 2012 5:44 PM

Complications with this procedure are very common. It is difficult to say what the outcome will be without knowing the location, distance of separation, and depth of tissue involved, as well as technique used.
Generally, if you use Sitz baths several times a day, a squirt bottle like for pregnancy to cleanse yourself after using bathroom, and a moist dressing, these can heal very well. Dont go dancing, do aerobics, or have sex until it is healed.
There are times when minor corrections are desired, but hopefully it is not so significant a separation as to cause a prominent deformity.

Kind regards,

You may be pleasantly surprised and everything may heal much better than expected. This region is known for that.
Give it a chance with good clean wound care.
Good luck from NYC

Agree with previous posters. But best to see your surgeon ASAP to be safe.
