5 Hygiene Tips During Recovery From Labiaplasty

Keeping the incision site clean and dry after a labiaplasty procedure is vital to a swift and successful recovery. Your surgeon will provide you with a detailed list of dos and don’ts to guide you immediately following the surgery, and you should follow all of them to a tee in order to make sure that you don’t have to return to address any post-surgery complications. Below are 5 hygiene tips to follow when recovering from labiaplasty. Showering. When you shower, during the first week after surgery, apply a very small amount of Hibiclens to the labia.

How Often Should I Go For A Chemical Peel?

If you want to improve your skin tone, manage dryness, flakiness, fine lines, acne scars, aging and sun spots, you may be considering having a chemical peel. Chemical peels range from mild to harsh and are designed to exfoliate the top layer of your skin to reveal new, fresh skin underneath, which can take years off of your appearance if done correctly. That being said, because a chemical peel involves stripping away old skin, they are something that should be done at healthy intervals so as not to permanently damage your skin, and so you are not walking around with irritated red skin all the time. The number of peels you can undergo in a given timeframe depends on your skin and on the type of peel you opt for. Superficial peels. These are the most common type of peel patients undergo and most use some form of hydroxy acid to exfoliate the top layer of dead skin cells.

How Soon Can I Ride A Bike After Buttocks Augmentation?

Recovering from any surgery involves plenty of rest and treating the surgical site with the utmost care. It means listening to your surgeon’s advice and recommendations regarding postoperative treatment and precautions and making sure that you are not placing the area under any undue stress by engaging in physical activities sooner than your body is able to handle them. This holds especially true after buttocks augmentation surgery. Considering how much of the time you spend sitting, standing, bending over, getting in and out of vehicles, on public transport, moving around while sleeping, your buttocks are a focal point for stress and force during every 24-hour cycle. You will need to tailor your physical activity immediately following the surgery, especially anything involving sitting or force to the area. While it is generally safe to sit, using extreme caution, after buttocks augmentation surgery, it is recommended that you do not sit for too long a period of time. Remaining seated for too long increases the risk that the implants will shift and that the fat injections will not set properly. It is generally recommended to avoid sitting at all for at least a week after the surgery, except when using the washroom. At work Most patients are able to return to their…
