Nowadays, addressing the appearance of the genitalia is no longer a taboo. Whilst the current media craze for perfection is often exaggerated, why shouldn’t women take pride in their total appearance with novel aesthetic gynaecological procedures? With substantial changes taking place in a woman’s body over time, there’s no harm in wanting to regain confidence even ‘down there.’ 

With women living and working for longer, it follows that they are sexually active for longer too. Therefore, ensuring youthful appearance of the concealed labia minora and full, smooth and voluptuous labia majora is no longer a ‘nice-to-have’ but rather, arguably, a ‘must-have,’ Like every other part of your body, your labia are susceptible to the signs of aging. Due to hormonal changes affected by genetics, childbirth, and ageing, the vagina can gradually yield to laxity, deflation, dehydration, and wrinkling. With time, the labia majora (the outer lips that surround the vaginal opening) often wrinkle and lose elasticity and tone, causing them to sag and appear deflated. As the labia majora continue to thin out over time, the labia minora (the inner lips) become more visible, especially if they are darker or hang down past the edges of the labia majora. This leaves you with unsightly, flat and sagging labia that give this intimate part of your body an ageing look. Such changes can be a source of embarrassment and discomfort and may even negatively impact your intimate life.

If you are troubled by these changes, you do not have to endure living with them. You can restore the youthful and plump appearance of your intimate area with the cutting-edge labia majora augmentation via fat transfer procedure, commonly known as Fat Grafting Injection.”

This pain free treatment uses your own body fat to add volume back to the labia majora that deflated with time. It instantly refills the labia to an appearance similar to what it may have looked like before childbirth or menopause.

More about the Fat Grafting Injection

carried out as a daycare procedure, the treatment involves harvesting some fat from another area of your body, such as your inner thighs, buttocks, flanks, or abdominal area, via liposuction. The next step includes purifying the collected fat by putting it in a centrifuge to remove oil and blood. The fat is then re-injected gently and meticulously into the labia via the cannula technique to infuse the area with youthful volume.

Although some discomfort may occur, Fat Grafting Injection is not a painful procedure. It can be administered under local anaesthesia or general anaesthesia depending on personal preference and whether it is done separately or in conjunction with another vaginal rejuvenation procedure.

You may have mild swelling, redness, and some bruising at the injection site and the sites from which the fat was extracted, but these signs typically subside within a few days.

The recovery process can be different for everyone. However, most women are up and about moving freely the next day. Showering may be resumed on the second day following the procedure. Intimate relations and enjoyable physical exercise may be resumed within one week.

What are the benefits of the Fat Grafting Fat Injection? 

A scientifically validated procedure primarily performed for volumisation and contouring in aesthetic gynaecology, this fat injection has gained tremendous popularity due to the promising results it yields. By adding volume to the labia majora, they are often lifted and appear fuller. The most notable benefits include:

  • It is a minimally-invasive procedure; it does not require any cutting, suturing, or visible scars.
  • Results tend to be long-lasting and natural-looking.
  • It is an all-natural procedure; the injected fat comes from your own body.
  • There is no risk of rejection, and the injected fat will be naturally reabsorbed over time.
  • Minimal downtime and fast recovery.
  • Improved self-confidence and satisfaction with personal appearance.

Is it right for you?

Fat Grafting Injection procedure can work for women eager to improve the laxity and deflation of their outer genital area, as well as their quality of life. During the consultation, I always discuss your expectations and assess if you are a good candidate for the procedure, based on the anatomy and aesthetics of your labia.

With cosmetically inclined women fervently taking a `head-to-toe` approach to anti-aging and aesthetic solutions these days, Fat Grafting Injection is a great option ideal for women on-the-go and in need of a swift, instantly rejuvenating aesthetic procedure, without the need for the surgeon’s scalpel.
