Fat Transfer Labia Majora Before And After

Fat transfer to the labia majora, also known as labia majora augmentation or labia majora rejuvenation, is a cosmetic procedure that involves using a person’s own fat cells to add volume and improve the appearance of the labia majora (outer folds of the vulva). This procedure is performed to enhance the fullness and youthful appearance of the labia majora. Here’s an overview of what you can expect before and after fat transfer to the labia majora:

Before Fat Transfer to the Labia Majora:

  1. Consultation: You will begin by scheduling a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon or gynecologist who specializes in labia majora augmentation. During this consultation:
    • You’ll discuss your reasons for considering the procedure and your desired outcomes.
    • The surgeon will evaluate your labia majora and overall health.
    • You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss any concerns.
  2. Medical Evaluation: Your surgeon will conduct a thorough medical evaluation to ensure that you are a suitable candidate for the procedure.
  3. Pre-operative Instructions: Before the surgery, your surgeon will provide you with specific instructions on how to prepare. This may include dietary restrictions, discontinuing certain medications or supplements, and refraining from smoking.
  4. Anesthesia: Fat transfer to the labia majora can be performed under local anesthesia with or without sedation, or general anesthesia, depending on the extent of the procedure and your comfort level. Your surgeon will discuss the anesthesia option during your consultation.

During Fat Transfer to the Labia Majora:

The procedure typically involves the following steps:

  1. Harvesting Fat: Your surgeon will use liposuction to remove excess fat from a donor area on your body, such as the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks. The harvested fat is purified and prepared for injection.
  2. Injection: The purified fat is then carefully injected into the labia majora to add volume and improve the appearance. The surgeon uses small, precise injections to achieve the desired results.
  3. Closure: There are no incisions or sutures in the labia majora itself, as the fat is injected using a small needle.

After Fat Transfer to the Labia Majora:

  1. Recovery: You may experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the days following the procedure. Your surgeon will provide detailed post-operative care instructions to manage these symptoms, including the use of cold compresses and pain medication.
  2. Rest and Activity: You should rest and avoid strenuous activities for a period specified by your surgeon, typically a few weeks. Sexual activity and tampon use are often discouraged during this time.
  3. Follow-up Visits: You’ll have follow-up appointments with your surgeon to monitor your healing progress and ensure there are no complications.
  4. Results: The initial swelling will subside over time, and you’ll start to see the final results of the fat transfer to the labia majora. The fat cells that survive the transfer become a permanent part of the labia.
  5. Satisfaction: Many individuals report increased confidence and satisfaction with their appearance after fat transfer to the labia majora, but it’s important to have realistic expectations and choose a skilled surgeon to achieve the desired outcome.

Choosing a qualified and experienced surgeon who specializes in labia majora augmentation is essential for minimizing the risk of complications and achieving the best possible results.
