Labia minora swelling

03/21/2008

Question:

I had a tummy tuck with liposcupture of abdomen and buttock, my labia minora is very swollen on the left side, is that normal? When should it go down??

Answer:

I am not sure of the complications of a liposuction, but it could be possible. You should discuss this with your plastic surgeon to see if this is common. If not, you should be seen by a gynecologist who needs to rule out other causes
