As our bodies age, the production of collagen begins to slow down. We often see this in our faces as our skin dries out, loses elasticity, and develops wrinkles. However, the lack of collagen also affects all parts of the body, including the labia. If you are a woman who is experiencing sagging and a loss of elasticity in her labia, there are surgical options available to you. Receiving a labia majora enhancement with fillers in Cleveland could help reverse these visible signs of aging.
Augmentation of the labia majora using cosmetic fillers (often referred to as labia puffing) has increased in popularity over the past few years. If this procedure interests you, our caring cosmetic gynecologists in Lyndhurst and Westlake could address any questions or concerns you may have.
What are the Benefits of Labia Majora Enhancement?
Childbirth, extreme fluctuations in weight, hormonal changes, and natural aging can all contribute to deflation, wrinkling, and excess skin in a woman’s intimate areas.
Hypotrophy, or the degeneration of tissue of the labia majora, not only causes visual changes but can also lead to physical discomforts. As such, sagging or excess skin on the labia majora could cause discomfort during sporting activities and while wearing tight-fitting clothing.
Some issues associated with labia majora hypotrophy include chronic vulvitis, which is thin tissue around the vulva that cracks easily, and vulvovaginal dryness. When a woman in Cleveland receives fillers as a part of her labia majora enhancement, the volume of her vulva increases, providing a more youthful appearance and relieving symptoms associated with hypotrophy. Any woman who is unhappy with the appearance of her outer labia, suffers from soreness, dryness, or itchiness around her vulva, and is over 18 years old, may benefit from labia puffing.
What is Involved in a Labia Puffing Procedure?
A consultation with a board-certified, cosmetic gynecologist is an essential first step in preparing for this procedure. During this conversation, our Ob/Gyn could discuss where on the vulva filler injections may provide the most benefits, as well as any other procedures that might help a woman with the overall appearance of her vagina. The enhancement procedure begins with a topical anesthetic applied to the outer labia. After anesthesia, the gynecologist uses a blunt cannula, or a special needle designed for this type of injection, to administer an FDA-approved filler into the predetermined locations around the labia.
The labia puffing procedure takes less than one hour to complete. Patients may see some swelling in the area for the first few days. Patients in Cleveland may see the results from their filler labia majora enhancement after about a week.
There are virtually no complications with this simple outpatient procedure, and little-to-no downtime or recovery is needed. Most patients enjoy the results from this enhancement for two years or longer. Additional treatments may be required to achieve or maintain results.
