Labial augmentation is a non-surgical procedure that aims to enhance the appearance of the labia by using fillers, such as hyaluronic acid, to add volume and shape to the labia majora. This procedure is typically done for cosmetic reasons to improve the appearance of the labia, although some women may elect to have it done to correct asymmetry or to address concerns related to labial hypertrophy (enlarged labia) caused by genetics or other factors.
The procedure is usually done in a doctor’s office or clinic setting and is performed under local anesthesia. A dermal filler is injected into the labia to add volume and shape, and results can typically be seen immediately. The procedure typically takes around 30 minutes to complete and recovery time is minimal, with minimal swelling and bruising.
Benefits of labial augmentation include improved appearance of the labia, increased self-confidence and self-esteem, and potentially improved sexual satisfaction. However, it’s important to note that labia augmentation is not generally considered a medically necessary procedure, and that the benefits may be relatively small, and it should be discussed with a qualified healthcare professional, who can inform you about potential risks and complications associated with the procedure as well as help you understand if this procedure align with your goals and expectations.
