As you age, your collagen production decreases resulting in wrinkles, sagging, and reduced volume of features. While many understand that these signs of aging affect parts of the body such as the face, neck, and arms, fewer individuals realize that decreased collagen production affect the vulva as well. You may notice that your labia majora has begun to sag, looks more relaxed, and has decreased in size, leaving your vulva looking more aged. If the appearance of your vagina has negatively impacted your confidence, reach out to our caring and compassionate Ob/Gyns in Lyndhurst or Westlake to discuss surgical enhancement options.
A labia majora enhancement with fat transfer in Cleveland is a cosmetic procedure aiming to reverse signs of aging on the vulva and create a younger, rejuvenated appearance. During this process, the gynecologist takes excess fat from another part of the body and injects it within the labia majora to produce a fuller appearance.
A fat transfer for a labia majora enhancement procedure in Cleveland requires liposuction techniques. During this procedure, the Ob/Gyn typically takes fat from a part of the body with excess fat deposits, such as the abdomen. The fat is then purified of any debris to ensure it is clean and ready for placement into the labia majora.
Once cleaned, the cosmetic gynecologist injects the fat into the labia majora with small syringes to produce more volume in the vulva. The injections are inserted at various depths to ensure an even distribution of fat across the labia majora for more natural results. Immediately following the treatment, the labia majora may appear larger than desired but, over time, some fat is absorbed by the body as the healing process occurs. Recovery time varies based on the procedure and individual. However, most patients can return to all activities within a week.
The main benefit of a labia majora enhancement is a rejuvenated vulva appearance. By increasing the size and plumpness of the labia majora, the vulva appears fuller and more lifted for a younger look. Additionally, since this procedure uses fat from other parts of the body, the results look softer and more natural than other enhancement options. This method also allows for more long-term results. An additional benefit of using the fat transfer method for labia majora enhancements in Cleveland is slimming the areas in which liposuction was used. Since the process is minimally invasive, the recovery process and downtime after treatment are not extensive.
Patients should avoid blood thinners and certain supplements in the weeks leading up to surgery. Patients should get at least eight hours of sleep and should not eat or drink after midnight the night before the surgery. Our caring gynecologists in Lyndhurst or Westlake could discuss the effects of the surgery and what patients should do to prepare.
