Labia Majora Augmentation
Loss of volume within the labia majora commonly occurs with aging, rapid weight loss or in women with low body fat. Sometimes the skin lacks elasticity yielding a deflated, wrinkled appearance. Volume augmentation with fat injections from your own body offers a natural and minimally invasive option to restore fullness and smoothness.
Puriifed fat is precisely layered beneath the skin of the labia majora with specialized fat grafting techniques. Tumescent local anesthesia is used for maximum control, safety and comfort. The procedure is painless.
Since the procedure requires harvesting a small volume of fat, you do not need to have large fat deposits to qualify for this treatment. Nonetheless, if you wish, augmentation of the labia majora can easily be combined with larger liposuction procedures and fat injections to other areas of your body.
Are the results permanent?
When fat is transplanted, volume retention is completely dependent upon the survival of the transplanted fat cells. The fat cells (adipocytes) that survive will give a permanent volume effect.
Unfortunately, complete survival of transplanted fat cells doesn't happen regardless of technique or technology. A realistic expectation would be retention of one half of the implanted volume. However, the procedure can be repeated multiple times to yield enhanced permanent results.
Are there any restrictions after the procedure?
The recovery is focused on protecting the fragile transplanted fat cells as they establish themselves in their new location. This is a 12-week process during which forceful pressure and manipulation to the area should be minimized. You should not attempt to lose weight. You should also refrain from cigarette smoking.
What are the best areas for harvesting fat?
Fat from anywhere on the body can be utilized for labia majora augmentation. However, the best sites are those where the fat is loosely held and can be suction out with minimal effort. These include the inner & outer thighs, lower abdomen, mons pubis and arms. Areas where the fat is fibrous or sites of previous liposuction are less desirable.
Out of Town Patients
Many patients at LVR-NJ travel considerable distances for our expertise in this procedure. We facilitate this process by providing the option of same-day consultation/same-day surgery. This is arranged in advance and by request at the time that you contact our office. Pre-operative bloodwork testing will need to be performed in advance through a local physician or lab near your home. Drs. Pelosi will review your situation to determine if this is an appropriate option. If you fly, or if your drive home is more than 2 hours, we recommend that you stay in the area overnight after your surgery so that Drs. Pelosi can evaluate you for proper healing on the day after surgery; afterwards, you may travel home. In certain situations, we can provide you with an overnight stay the night before your surgery if you are arriving late in the day.
