Labia Augmentation With Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Aging and pregnancy can create a variety of sexual health problems for women. Sagging skin, incontinence and loss of volume in the labia can affect a woman’s self-confidence. Labia augmentation with hyaluronic acid fillers is a safe and effective cosmetic procedure for vaginal rejuvenation. Dermal fillers can help plump this area and reduce wrinkles and sagging for a more youthful appearance. Repeat injections can be performed every three months for extra volume and to maintain results if needed.
Labia Augmentation with Fat Transfer (Grafting)
Labia augmentation with fat transfer is another method for enhancing the outer lips of the vagina. This outpatient procedure is performed in about an hour using local anesthesia with minimal downtime. Fat can be harvested from the patient’s abdomen or inner thigh and then purified before being injected into the labia majora to build volume. Patients can expect some swelling and bruising for approximately ten days after the procedure. Cool compresses can help reduce and relieve swelling and discomfort.
Patients can return to work about two days after the procedure and resume physically strenuous activities within a few weeks. Patients should plan to refrain from sexual activity for six weeks after fat grafting. While many patients achieve satisfactory results with one session, a second session may be necessary for some patients after six months.
Ideal Candidates for Labia Augmentation
Ideal candidates for labia augmentation with hyaluronic acid fillers or fat transfer are women seeking aesthetic enhancement for vaginal rejuvenation. This cosmetic procedure may not be suitable for women who may need treatment for a low sex drive or other psychosexual dysfunctions. To determine if you are an ideal candidate, you will need to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon.
