Edges separation after labiaplasty

Hello. I did labiaplasty 3 weeks ago and stitches came off on a second day of surgery on one side. It doesn’t seem that wound is closing. My doctor told me to wait and that everything will be fine. I am worried that it will heal with big scars or edges won’t close at all. I don’t know what to do.

I absolutely think you should be going back to your surgeon. I had mine 5 days ago and my stitches are still very much visible and in place.

Dear Niki, I am sorry to let you know that you have so called dehiscence, when edges of wounds separate themselves. I have not seen this for 10 years of my practice. Normally absorbable stitches last for ca. 3 weeks until wounds healed. Aside of this problem I think your result is not good, you still have a skin excess of hood and junction between base of hood and labium is splitted. The worse thing is that after 3 weeks I do not see a good chance that separated labia will grow together as there is already/probably epitelisation present. Well, anyway, you should talk to your surgeon. I wish you a good luck. Kind regards, Dr. Jo

Thank you for your response. Is it fixable? And when should a revision? I read that I should wait at least 3 months before any reconstruction.

You should consider having revision labiaplasty after 10-12 weeks.
