Fat grafting is a cosmetic treatment to add volume to the small labia majora and create a younger looking and improved appearance. Normal ageing, diminished collagen creation, pregnancy, genetics or labour - regardless of the reason, small labia majora can be corrected with this specific technique of fat grafting. 

There is normally around 1 week of recuperation time following labia augmentation with fat transfer. Bruising and swelling will settle within this time with the help of ice packs. Most patients return to work within a couple of days and the patients are encouraged to keep away from sexual activities and strenuous activity for as long as about a month and a half. 

Vaginal skin rejuvenation using the method of transfer of fat that makes use of fat grafting technique to improve the appearance of the vaginal region. Lasting for about 2 hours, the procedure will begin by first numbing the treatment area using either local or general anesthesia. Fat grafting technique typically involves three steps;

  • Removal of fat (usually using liposuction method): The fat cells are collected from a particular region of the body with overabundant fat, for instance, from the mid-section, buttocks, thighs, as well as the hips. To do this, tiny incisions are made on the skin, after which a thin tube is used to suction out small units of fat. The incisions are usually closed back with sutures. 
  • Preparation of fat: A specifically curated medical device will be used to split up the fat harvested from blood or any other fluids injecting the fat. 
  • Injection of fat: The harvested fat is then sanitised for cautious reinjection into the area of treatment. Once the fat is injected on the labia, there will be no need for any stitches.

While involving this technique for the genital fat transfer procedure, the collected fat is typically positioned in the labia majora (the external lips of the vagina) to give it volume and a younger looking appearance.
