When can I swim after labiaplasty?

Many women are bothered by protruding labia that are especially noticeable when wearing a bathing suit or other tight clothing such as yoga pants or tights. That’s why we started Austin Labiaplasty and Vaginal Rejuvenation––to provide these procedures on top of our essential urogynecological duties. But it’s July already, so, what do you do when summer is already here and you want to swim?

The labiaplasty procedure takes a few hours, then swimming is usually avoided for 2-4 weeks. A quick break from the pool and you can be back in a relatively short amount of time with greater comfort and confidence. If you are bothered by nagging, tugging, and bulging labia, you may be a good candidate for labiaplasty surgery.

No one says you can’t lounge by the pool with a nice summer drink, just can’t plunge in until healed! We see you after surgery to ensure your incisions are healing well and you are comfortable and happy with your results. We’re also always just a phone call away for our patients which makes the recovery process a little easier.
