labia puff

Labial Puff is a procedure that uses fat or dermal fillers to rejuvenate the labia. The labia majora is the outer fold of skin around the vagina that undergoes many changes throughout a woman’s lifetime. Due to hormonal changes affected by genetics, childbirth, and aging, the outer area of the vagina can naturally succumb to laxity, deflation, wrinkling, and excess skin.

Top Houston board-certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Patrick Hsu, Dr. Kendall Roehl, and Dr. Vasileios Vasilakis offer Labial Puff to women in Houston, Clear Lake, and surrounding areas such as Sugar Land, Katy, Pearland, Cypress, Conroe, Galveston, Webster, and Beaumont.

What are the Labial Puff Techniques?

Surgical Labial Puff via Fat Transfer

Liposuction will be used to harvest fat from various areas of the body. A blunt tip cannula is then used to inject the harvested fat into the outer genital area, otherwise known as the labia majora. The purpose of this fat transfer is to increase the volume of your labia majora. During the initial consultation, one of our doctors will discuss which areas for liposuction are best to obtain your desired results.

Non-Surgical Labial Puff via Filler Injections

In the event where you have limited excess fat to harvest from your body, or if you prefer a non-surgical option, dermal filler injections may also be an option for you. At Memorial Plastic Surgery, an FDA-approved injectable made from either hyaluronic acid or poly-L-lactic acid can be used to plump the labia and aid in the natural process of collagen production.

Since this method is non-surgical, using filler injections can be performed in our office at Memorial Plastic Surgery. Before the procedure, a topical anesthetic (numbing cream) will be applied to your outer labia to help you remain comfortable throughout your treatment. This procedure can take thirty minutes to one hour to complete and will likely require additional sessions to maintain the best results, as fillers are temporary.

Labial Puff FAQs

Is the procedure covered by health insurance?

Insurance does not cover the procedure since it is considered an elective cosmetic treatment.

What are the pros and cons of using dermal fillers instead of fat?

Opting to use injectable fillers makes this a relatively quick procedure, with no downtime. Dermal fillers, however, are not permanent and will likely require a touch-up treatment every six-to-twelve months to maintain optimal results.

Do your results last forever if fat grafting is used instead of fillers?

Fat grafting does not guarantee a permanent result, as some fat will naturally reabsorb over time. However, the longevity of your results is expected to last for years.

How do I know whether I should do a surgical on non-surgical Labial Puff?

During your consultation, you will be evaluated by one of our doctors to determine which procedure will be best for you. In addition, we offer several surgical and non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatments.

Is this procedure typically only recommended when women are in certain age groups?

Like the rest of the body, the vagina continues to lose volume and fullness as a woman ages. Some women may experience this concern early in their life due to genetics or later on in their adult life due to natural aging or childbirth. Since every person is different, women may benefit from having this procedure at different stages in their life. If you have concerns relating to lack of volume or fullness in your labia, don’t hesitate to contact Memorial Plastic Surgery to set up a consultation for a formal evaluation.

Can I have a labia puff procedure if I am pregnant?

If you are considering a labial puff and pregnant, it is recommended to wait at least six months following childbirth. This will give your body time to readjust following pregnancy. Pregnancy after your labial puff treatment can also alter your final results.
