Labia Majora: The Anatomy

The labia majora, also known as the outer lips of the vulva, is an essential part of the female anatomy. They are two folds of skin that protect the vaginal opening and support the pelvic area. The labia majora comprises adipose tissue, sebaceous glands, and hair follicles, and their appearance can vary greatly from person to person. Some women may experience changes in the labia majora due to aging, weight loss, or pregnancy, which can lead to discomfort or self-consciousness.

What is Labia Majora Augmentation?

Labia majora augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that involves using fillers or fat transfer to increase the volume and improve the appearance of the labia majora. The treatment can also address issues such as asymmetry or sagging of the labia. The fillers or fat are carefully injected into the labia majora to create a more youthful and rejuvenated look. This non-surgical procedure is a quick and safe way to enhance the labia majora’s appearance and restore a woman’s confidence in her intimate areas.

Reasons for Labia Majora Augmentation:

  • Loss of volume due to aging, weight loss, or pregnancy
  • Asymmetry or unevenness in the labia majora
  • Sagging or laxity of the labia majora
  • Discomfort during physical activity or intercourse
  • Insecurity or self-consciousness about the appearance of the labia majora
  • Desire to restore a more youthful and attractive appearance to the intimate area
  • Wanting to improve overall genital aesthetics and femininity

Benefits of Labia Majora Augmentation:

  • Improved appearance of the labia majora
  • Increased confidence and self-esteem in intimate situations
  • Enhanced sexual pleasure and satisfaction due to reduced discomfort
  • Non-surgical procedure with minimal downtime and recovery
  • Long-lasting results that can last several years
  • Low risk of complications when performed by a qualified gynecological surgeon

What Happens During Your Labia Majora Augmentation Procedure

During a labia majora augmentation procedure using fat transfer, the first step is to harvest fat from another area of the body, typically the abdomen or thighs, through liposuction. The harvested fat is purified and injected into the labia majora in small amounts to achieve the desired volume and shape. The procedure takes one to two hours and is performed under local anesthesia. Patients can usually return to normal activities within a few days but should avoid strenuous exercise for a few weeks.

Recovery & Aftercare

After a labia majora augmentation, patients can return home the same day with minimal discomfort. It is normal to experience swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort in the treated area for a few days. You are advised to avoid strenuous exercise and sexual activity for at least two weeks and to keep the area clean and dry during the healing process. A follow-up appointment is typically scheduled to monitor the healing progress and ensure optimal results.
