Fat Transfer To Labia Before And After

Fat transfer to the labia, also known as labia majora augmentation with autologous fat transfer, is a cosmetic procedure aimed at enhancing the size and shape of the labia majora using the patient’s own fat tissue. Here is an overview of the procedure:


  1. Consultation: The process begins with a consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon who specializes in this procedure. During the consultation, you will discuss your goals, expectations, and any concerns you may have.
  2. Preparation: On the day of the procedure, the surgeon will mark the areas where fat will be harvested (typically from areas like the abdomen or thighs) and where it will be injected into the labia majora.
  3. Liposuction: Liposuction is used to extract excess fat tissue from the chosen donor site. The fat is collected, purified, and processed to prepare it for injection.
  4. Fat Injection: The processed fat is carefully injected into the labia majora to achieve the desired enhancement. The surgeon will use precise techniques to ensure that the fat is distributed evenly.
  5. Recovery: After the procedure, patients may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort in both the donor site and the labia majora. The recovery period varies from person to person, but patients are typically advised to avoid strenuous physical activities and sexual intercourse during the initial healing phase.


The results of fat transfer to the labia majora can vary from person to person. Some of the fat may be reabsorbed by the body, so the initial volume may decrease slightly. However, the remaining fat should provide a noticeable and natural enhancement to the labia majora. It’s important to have realistic expectations, as the final results may take several weeks to fully manifest.


As with any surgical procedure, there are potential risks associated with fat transfer to the labia majora, including infection, scarring, asymmetry, and the possibility of fat reabsorption. It’s crucial to choose a board-certified plastic surgeon with experience in this specific procedure to minimize these risks.

If you are considering fat transfer to the labia majora, it’s essential to have a thorough consultation with a qualified surgeon who can assess your suitability for the procedure and provide you with detailed information about the process, potential risks, and expected outcomes. Additionally, ensure that you follow your surgeon’s post-operative care instructions for the best results and a smooth recovery.
