Labia Puffing in Los Angeles
Many women in Los Angeles want to address the changes to the body that come with aging, childbirth, menopause, or weight loss. Those changes can also be apparent in intimate areas of the body. The labia majora, or outer lips of the vulva, can become thinner, looser, and less supple and full over time, especially as estrogen levels decrease.
While women may have aesthetic concerns about the appearance of their labia, they may also feel the physical effects of these changes. Because the labia act as a sort of cushion for the vulva, sexual intercourse or even activities like riding a bike or a horse may be uncomfortable and painful.
Labia puffing is a medical procedure that can address the changes that come with time and restore the supple, fuller appearance and feel of the labia.
Benefits of a Labia Puff
Labia puffing in Los Angeles can provide a number of benefits for women who want to address aesthetic and comfort concerns about changes in the size and shape of their labia.
This procedure can quickly and effectively boost the shape and appearance of the labia majora, offering a rounded, youthful appearance. The cushioning effect of the labia can be restored with labia puffing in Los Angeles.
Laxity and sagging in the labia can also lead to the labia minora, or inner lips of the vulva, becoming more visible and apparent. Labia puffing in Los Angeles restores the full appearance of the labia majora, effectively minimizing the appearance of longer or sagging inner lips.
Women may experience increased body confidence and pride after labia puffing in Los Angeles and feel greater comfort during sexual intercourse or exercise.
Who is a Candidate for a Labia Puffing procedure?
Any healthy adult woman who wants to change the appearance of the outer lips is a good candidate for labia puffing in Los Angeles. This is a safe, non-surgical procedure that can be completed quickly, and women may return to their normal activities following the labia puff procedure.
The Labia Puffing Procedure
There are two primary options for labia puffing in Los Angeles. Women may opt for either a dermal filler – similar to the fillers used in facial cosmetic treatments for a fuller, plumper appearance – or an autologous fat graft, using fatty tissue taken from other parts of their own body. Both procedures are non-surgical.
Labia Puffing with Dermal Fillers
There are several dermal fillers that can be used for labia puffing in Los Angeles, all of which are FDA-approved, with a strong track record of success. Dr. Tahery may advise about the filler options that are most suited for each woman. Dermal fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, a natural substance produced by the body that supports plumper, more youthful skin, and supports collagen production. There is very little risk of rejection, and dermal fillers are just as safe as a fat graft.
This non-surgical procedure takes approximately 15 minutes. A local anesthetic is applied to the labia before a tiny needle is injected with the filler into the labia majora. The results will be visible immediately, and women are able to return to their daily activities immediately following the procedure. Like facial fillers, labia puffing in Los Angeles with dermal fillers will last for around six to eight months.
Labia Puffing with Fat Grafts
For this labia puffing procedure, a small amount of fat is collected from another part of the body, most usually the abdomen or the inner thigh. After the fat is collected and purified, the procedure is very similar to those using fillers. The labia would be numbed with a local anesthetic, and the doctor would inject the purified fat using very tiny, specialized needles.
After the procedure, women may return to their daily activities. Because the fat comes from the patient’s own body, it will not be rejected and will be naturally reabsorbed over time. The results are typically more understated and natural, and they may last longer than dermal fillers.
In either case, Dr. Tahery’s office will provide patients with detailed instructions about how to care for themselves after the procedure to minimize discomfort and maximize results.
