With time, childbirth, and other hormonal changes, some women may find that their labia majora (or the outer lips at the opening of the vagina) become less elastic and lose volume. Dermal fillers offer a safe and effective volumizing treatment option to improve the appearance and feel of the labia with no downtime and natural, long-lasting results.
Labia augmentation with dermal filler, also known as labial puffing, add volume to the labia to address signs of aging. Pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause can all cause the labia majora or outer lips to lose volume and become less plump. Hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers such as Restylane or Revance’s RHA filler line can significantly improve appearance of the labia majora without a permanent procedure. The new volume immediately improves the aesthetic as greater volume gives a younger appearance. Filler can also address asymmetry on one side or conceal a more prominent labia minora with a 30 minute-procedure.
Individuals that are:
Labial augmentation with filler is a nonsurgical procedure that is minimally invasive and short. After you arrive to the office, a topical anesthetic is applied to decrease discomfort during the filler injections. We provide laughing gas to ease anxiety during treatment. The procedure only takes about 10-15 minutes. Afterwards, there is no downtime from the injection and you can resume daily activities.
Labia augmentation with filler is performed in the office in about 30-40 minutes. After the numbing cream is applied, Dr. Taghechian injects the filler into the labia majora. With any injection, there is minor swelling, but very little downtime. We ask that you lay on your side as much as possible and avoid direct direct pressure as much as possible for 2-3 days afterwards.
The risks include bleeding, bruising, swelling, tenderness, and inadequate results. Majority of the swelling will subside within 2-3 days and some bruises can last for 5-7 days. Some fillers can become lumpy after a few weeks. If the appearance is unsatisfactory, the filler can easily be dissolved at any point.
Every patient has individually different anatomy and aesthetic goals; because of this, we encourage individuals interested in labia augmentation treatment to schedule a consultation with our women’s wellness expert in order to receive custom-tailored treatment recommendations and pricing information. In general, labia puffing will cost approximately $2,500.
