Is vaginal rejuvenation painful? What downtime can I expect?

Patients will undergo this procedure under general anaesthetic so you will feel no pain during surgery.  After your procedure is complete, any pain or discomfort you may experience will be controlled effectively with medication provided by your surgeon and will usually subside within a few days.

You may experience some mild discomfort, swelling and some bruising, but this will usually disappear completely after 1-2 weeks.   Most stitches will be dissolvable so you won't experience any discomfort – any to be removed will be done so at your 1 week post operative wound care appointment with a specialist nurse.  Many of our patients return to work after one week but you will be advised that you may require two weeks.  You must refrain from exercise and sexual intercourse until fully healed (around 6 weeks).
