In women, the outer lips, which are fatty structures surrounding both sides of the genital organ, are called large lips and labia majora. The volume of the outer lips may decrease, shrink or sag with the effect of time. The disruption of aesthetic appearance of the genital organ due to these conditions can lead to psychological problems. Labia majora augmentation is frequently preferred by women to prevent these problems.
What are the method of Labia Majora Augmentation?
It can be performed by two different methods; external lip fat injections and hyaluronic acid fillings. The most commonly used method is fat injection. Hyaluronic acid is rarely used in cases where body fat is not enough. Fat taken from the body’s hips, basins and abdomen by liposuction is injected into the outer lips.
Labia Majora Augmentation Process
The process consists of two stages: liposuction and fat injection. Local anaesthesia is applied to the area where liposuction will be preformed. After anaesthesia, 40-80 ml of fat is taken from the operation site. Hip, Basin and and abdomen are the most preferred areas for fat intake. After the liposuction process, the fat taken is prepared and made ready for injection. The operation is completed by injecting the fat with special cannulas into the operation area cleaned with a special solution. The procedure takes approximately 1-1.5 hours.

Considerations after the procedure
Although the risk of bleeding and infection is very low, hygiene of the genital area should be well taken care of after the procedure. Activities such as hot showers and sauna should be avoided during the first week. Heavy sports and exercises should not be performed during recovery. The healing process is completed in 2-3 weeks. Sexual intercourse may begin after the healing process is over.
