Over time, a woman’s labia can lose volume becoming saggy and deflated creating a genital area that some women consider unappealing. New technologies and procedures provide women the option of plumping and refreshing their intimate regions. Labial augmentation is a procedure that plumps and rejuvenates the labia majora using either fat grafting or filler paired with a patient’s own growth factors.
What Are the Benefits of Labial Augmentation?
Labial augmentation has a number of cosmetic benefits for women. First of all, the procedure can help women feel sexier and more confident in their appearance. Often times, when the labia majora shrink, other genital elements may appear large or asymmetrical. Returning youthful volume stimulates a symmetrical, healthy and appealing intimate aesthetic. For many women improving self-esteem allows her to maximize sexual confidence.
Patients may choose one of two options when they wish to pursue Labial augmentation. Dr. Brady offers both surgical and non-surgical options. Fat transfer to the Labia Majora involves removing fat cells (usually from the abdomen, flanks or inner thighs) and injecting them into the Labia Majora (outer lips) for a more youthful, natural aesthetic. On the other hand, a Wing Lift (or Labial Puff) is a non-invasive procedure using hyaluronic acid filler to fill out the Labia Majora in a quick, painless office procedure.
