Labia Augmentation with Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

About the Procedure
Labia augmentation, sometimes referred to as labial puffing, is a procedure that adds volume to the labia majora for a youthful appearance. The natural aging process causes collagen production to slow down, causing wrinkled and drooping skin all over the body—the vagina being no exception. Pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause can also cause volume loss in the labia. Hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane, Perlane, and Juvederm can be injected for an instant improvement in the size of the labia. It is common for labia augmentation to be combined with other vaginal rejuvenation treatments such as laser or radiofrequency tightening. During this simple procedure, a topical numbing cream may be applied to the labia for patient comfort. Dermal filler will be injected into the labia at various points and depths for a natural look. Following treatment, results will be noticeable immediately and patients will be able to resume all normal activity.
The goal of labia augmentation is to create a more youthful appearance of the labia majora.
