Labiaplasty - Will I need restitching?

Had labiaplasty (wedge method) almost a month ago and went abroad for it. It’s healing pretty well so far and I have some stitches left to fall out, but I’m concerned about my left labia (right side of the picture) as there is what looks almost like a hole where a stitch might have fallen out and the skin hasn’t fused together properly and I’m not sure if it will always stay like this as it’s asymmetrical to the other side. Still have loads of time for healing and could be a lot worse but just wondering if this is something that will need touching up later on.

Hi Randoho, the hole in your left labia will most probably require stitching later on ( Touch up Labiaplasty). All the Best !

Hey, you have now very short labia, was it what you wanted? I think it might heal as well by itself... Since the wounds are not that big... By wedge method it is very common that the stiches will not hold... And the would will open up... I hope you will get on very well! Wish you all the best!

Hey, thanks so much! Yes this is what i wanted, before they were quite long and asymmetrical and I much prefer it already now :) Have you had the procedure done?

Hi there,
sorry to let you know but your result is not good at all, a hole is only one of problems I can see.
It seems more like a tunnel, which would be pretty difficult to fix as it needs an excision again and then there is a problem with dehiscence again because of lack of tissue and too much stress tension on it. Then a whole healing is compromised and the same problem can occur again.
You need a detailed investigation and precise follow-up. Good luck. Kind regards, Dr. Jo
