Question: After getting a labiaplasty, how long until you can go in water?

I am going away in 5 weeks to Punta Cana and plan to go in the ocean and pool, will I be okay? I also might go on excusrions for horseback riding and zip lining. I need to know if I’ll be healed in time.

Answer: Beach Vacation After Labiaplasty

Healing after a labiaplasty usually takes six weeks so if you’re just now getting your labiaplasty, you likely won’t be healed in time. Bacteria in the ocean or pool can irritate your labia or cause infection, and horseback riding may cause tearing and bleeding. You should speak with your surgeon about your travel plans. I would hate for you to endanger your final aesthetic results, especially if you are close to having your restrictions lifted. Cheers!
