Can you suggest anything to eliminate or significantly reduce scarring from labiaplasty? The scarring is inside the vagina.
Labiaplasty

I have scarring from a labiaplasty "botch job". The surgeon used a strange technique whereby he cut into the inside of my vagina and did zig zag stitching creating folds. I've had a reconstruction to give me back my labia which is great, but the inside continues to feel rough and lumpy. Wondering if IPL might work or a special cream or oil to soften it?

You probably have excess mucosa inside the vagina with scarring from the preveous surgery.
You can have a vaginoplasty to remove the excess mucosa and the scar, Then suture back more (more)
