We often hear this from our patients afterwards. You can, for example, walk out of the clinic yourself after the operation.
Work that requires minimal physical effort can be resumed even after one week.
After the operation we are there for you to help you recover in an optimal way.
After the operation you can walk out of the clinic yourself and you will be returned to your hotel room. The first phase of recovery begins here as you need plenty of rest. Depending on the surgeon’s advice you stay in a hotel in the area for several more nights (one to five nights). After you have recovered sufficiently you are allowed to go back home, no further aftercare is needed from this point on.
Some tips for the first period
After the operation you will feel a swelling under the surgical wound: this swelling feels like there is a tiny sausage under the skin. You do not have to worry about this, this is a normal phenomenon and is part of the recovery. The swelling gradually disappears within a few weeks.
There may be bruises around the wound, this is also a normal phenomenon. The bruise can move downward into the penis or labia and gradually disappears after a few weeks.
Around wound it may be sensitive in the first weeks. This is because several nerves are numbed during the operation and it takes longer before they are fully recovered.
After the operation you can eat and drink as you normally do. Exercising is good because it stimulates blood circulation. To speed up the recovery we advise you to exercise regularly, think of walking and performing your daily activities at home actively. You can resume more intensive exercise after two to three weeks, but be careful not to overdo them. When the body indicates that you are in pain, it is better to take it easy.
