Can A Fat Transfer Plump My Labia Majora?
Of all the side effects that go along with pregnancy, childbirth, and aging, changes to the function and appearance of the vagina are often the least discussed and seldom addressed. However, these concerns can understandably make a woman feel less feminine and less confident, particularly in the bedroom. Furthermore, vaginal aging can contribute to painful or irritative functional symptoms. Board-certified gynecologist and cosmetic surgeon Dr. Otto Huertas and the expert team at Dallas Cosmetic Center understand the private and personal nature of these issues and are committed to providing caring and effective treatment for women seeking vaginal rejuvenation in Dallas, TX. Learn more about one of the most innovative and beneficial forms of vaginal rejuvenation surgery, fat grafting, including how it can restore a more youthful, plump labia majora.
What is the function of the labia majora?
The labia majora, or outer lips of the vagina, help to protect other vaginal structures and tissues from trauma, irritation, bacteria, infections, and other outside factors. Additionally, the labia majora help to keep the vagina lubricated, which is particularly important during sexual activity. When the vagina becomes too dry, sex can be painful for both the woman and her partner.
What causes the labia majora size to decrease?
Certain life events, such as pregnancy and childbirth, can take a major toll on the vagina and labia. Some women experience vaginal laxity, while others notice that their labia minora have become stretched out. The labia majora can also be impacted by these events. However, the aging process is one of the most common causes of deflated labia majora. As the body’s production of collagen slows down and fat pads begin to diminish, many women notice that their labia majora appear to be shrinking and/or sagging. Not only can this cause functional problems, including discomfort with sex and more frequent infections, but many women also feel self-conscious about the aged appearance of their vagina and labia majora.
How to plump labia majora
Labia majora rejuvenation can be life-changing for women who are experiencing frustrating physical and emotional symptoms related to their outer vaginal lips. While injectable fillers can be used for labia puffing, many Dallas, TX patients opt for the more natural and longer-lasting method of fat grafting to the labia majora. During this procedure, which usually only takes about 30 – 60 minutes and can be performed with local anesthesia for the patient, Dr. Huertas will begin by harvesting fat from another area of the patient’s body, such as the abdomen, hips, or thighs. The fat is then separated, purified, and prepared in syringes. Using skill and precision, Dr. Huertas then carefully injects the fat into the labia majora in thin layers, ensuring he is able to sculpt a beautiful, natural-looking, symmetric new labia shape.
What are the benefits of labia puffing with fat transfer?
For many women, the appeal of being able to use their own natural fat – rather than a synthetic filler material – is one of the main draws of labia fat transfer. However, there are numerous benefits of using fat grafting to plump the labia majora, including:
- Uses a patient’s natural fat
- Low risk of adverse reaction
- Can be performed using local anesthesia and/or IV sedation
- Only takes 30 – 60 minutes
- Virtually no visible scarring
