Labia Majora Enhancement
The labia are flaps of skin covering and protecting the opening of the vagina and urinary system. There are two labia – labia majora, the outer larger flap, and labia minora, the inner smaller flap of skin.
Labia majora augmentation is a surgery performed to puff up the labia by injecting fat from another part of your body or hyaluronic acid, to smooth and tighten the loose, wrinkled skin.
Labia majora augmentation is indicated for reduced labia majora collagen, volume, tone and size as a result of ageing, and to rejuvenate sagging labia after pregnancy and massive weight loss. A smaller labia majora allows the non-aesthetical visible protrusion of the darker labia minor and doesn’t provide adequate cushioning, making intercourse painful.
Labia majora augmentation is performed on an outpatient basis under general or local anesthesia. Your doctor augments the labia major a either with dermal fillers, or fat transfer and grafting. Dermal fillers containing hyaluronic acid, a natural substance of the deep layers of the skin, are sometimes injected to produce fuller labia majora. The fat transfer method involves removal of fat (liposuction) from your own abdomen, buttock or thigh area, followed by centrifugation to obtain pure fat and then injecting it under the skin of the labia majora. Multiple injections may be required to achieve the desired outcomes.
Labia majora augmentation usually takes about 15 minutes to complete.
Labia majora augmentation increases sexual fulfillment and provides a more youthful appearance. Dermal fillers produce immediate short-term results, while fat transfer results in permanent outcomes.
You will be able to resume your activities immediately after dermal fillers or after a day of rest after labia majora enhancement with fat transfer.
As with any procedure, labia majora augmentation may involve certain risks and complications which include infection and bleeding.
