Labia majora augmentation is a cosmetic procedure designed to enhance the size, shape, and overall appearance of the labia majora – the outer, larger lips of the female genitalia.
The procedure involves injecting a filler substance, typically hyaluronic acid, into the labia majora to increase their volume and plumpness.
The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis under local anaesthesia and typically takes less than 30 minutes to complete.
We use a filler that is licenced for use in the external genitalia. However, any filler that creates volume can be used. The filler is injected into the labia to create a half-moon shape on either side.
We use numbing cream for 20 mins before the treatment, reducing the pain significantly. We use a local anaesthetic at the needle entry point. Once we have made a passage for the needle, we use blunt-edge cannulas to perform the treatment. We inject a local anaesthetic into the labial up to 5mls on each side.
Since the filler can move, we would advise you to abstain from sex for 5 days, swimming for 3 days. You can carry on with your day-to-day activities almost immediately. We will also give you some instructions to keep the filler in place. None of these should prevent you from getting back to work immediately after.
Apart from bruising, there are no other risks that are involved with the procedure. Occlusion of blood vessels as they happen in the face is very rare as labia is supplied by small blood vessels that join each other.
Yes, it can be combined with surgery like labiaplasty or clitoral hood reduction if necessary. We, however, advise not to have surgery for six weeks after having labial filler to prevent migration during the procedure.
You will be able to see the result immediately but it often goes down as the swelling and the anaesthetic settles. Once the filler settles in 5-7 days, the final results will be visible. You can then reassess if more volume is needed in the labia.
