Labia Majora Augmentation Phoenix
A woman can feel insecure about the look of her labia for a number of reasons. There can be damage to the labia from trauma, change to the size and shape because of age or childbirth, or genetic reasons. The rise of pubic laser hair removal in the early twenty-first century to present has led to increased awareness of the appearance of the genitals.
The labia majora (the outer folds of skins with hair on them) are some of the most prominent parts of the vulva because they are on the surface. For some, the labia majora can lack symmetry and size which can detract from the patient’s satisfaction with the look.
Labia Majora Augmentation with fat transfer can improve the contour of the labia majora by increasing the size, improve firmness , correct proportional imbalances, and enhancing the shape.
How is Labia Majora Augmentation Done?
The first step to perform liposuction. When we are preforming liposuction for fat transfer we don’t use laser liposuction such as SlimLipo because it destroys the cells. We want to use traditional tumescent liposuction with fat transfer to preserve the fat cells as much as possible. Fat cells, or adipocytes, are living cells like any other in your body and they last longer and stay put much better when they’re kept alive. Once the fat is sterilely extracted it is cleaned and purified. Our office can also purify your fat further with stem cell fat transfer to the labia majora as an option. The actual transfer of the fat to the labia majora takes about twenty minutes and the procedure takes about an hour. Many patients also decide to have fat transfer or liposuction to other areas of the face and body during the same procedure.
For those wanting a more temporary effect, injectables such as VOLUMA can be used with fantastic results and last up to two years. The injectable product causes an increased volume in the labia majora which has s similar effect. Although it doesn’t last as long as using your own fat, it has less downtime and is quicker to preform.
What will happen in the recovery period?
During the recovery period, avoid sitting for long periods and do not drive. Strenuous exercise and heavy lifting should also be avoided. Recovery varies from person to person. It could take up to two weeks to fully recover.
Any discomfort that patients experience can be managed with medication. Because dissolvable sutures are used, there are no stitches that need to be removed. Some slight bruising and swelling can be expected around the labia and surrounding tissue. Most patients are able to return to work on the day after surgery, though more strenuous activities will need to be postponed for four to six weeks.
