Vaginal Rejuvenation on the Rise
When it comes to plastic surgery, there are some parts of the body that are particularly sensitive to discussion. Perhaps it shouldn’t be surprising that vaginal rejuvenation procedures are on that list of sensitive procedures—in order to ensure that our patients get excellent results, however, it’s worth having an open, honest, and frank discussion about all vaginal rejuvenation techniques and surgeries. In this particular case, we’ll be discussing a procedure called Labia Majora Fat Grafting. This procedure is designed to help women who feel uncomfortable with the size or shape of their labia tissue feel better about the way their vaginal area looks—in other words, it’s designed to help those women feel more comfortable in their own skin.
Why Fat Grafting for the Labia Majora?
As we age, we tend to lose some fat. And while that might sound like a nice deal, it’s usually not fat from where you’d like to lose it. Rather, you can lose fat from the face, the breasts, the hips, and, of course, the labia. This parts of the body, then, begin to lose their youthful look. For some women, this can make the labia a source of discomfort and self-consciousness. The solution to this problem is a relatively straightforward procedure called Labia Majora Fat Grafting, which takes advantage of processes developed to transfer fat to other areas in the body.
Fat grafting is, essentially, removing fat from one area of your body to put it to better use somewhere else on your body. The fat is usually removed through a minimally invasive surgical procedure (such as liposuction), then the fat processed. This purification process is important to emphasize, because many people mistakenly assume that the injection is immediate. This would not be wise or effective. Once the fat is purified, it can then be injected into the target area—in this case, that target is the Labia Majora.

Discussions centering around vaginal rejuvenation therapy can be delicate, so it’s important to seek out a plastic surgeon with whom you’re comfortable. And, to be sure, starting a conversation is sometimes the best way to figure out whether this procedure is a good fit for you. If you exhibit some of the following characteristics, you might be a good fit for a Labia Majora fat graft procedure:
- You are uncomfortable with the size of your Labia Majora tissue
- You desire an increase in the volume of your Labia Majora tissue
- You are in generally good health
- You maintain a relatively stable weight
- You are not opposed to permanent results
- You have realistic expectations of what this procedure can accomplish
Labia Majora Fat Grafting procedures are generally performed on an outpatient basis. The most taxing part of the procedure is, in fact, the procurement of the donor fat. Liposuction is usually performed under general or local anesthesia, depending on the extent of the work performed—and that extent usually depends on your desired final results. Once the fat extraction is performed, that fat will then be purified in order to make it effective for injection.
You and Dr. Bosbous will collaborate on selecting the perfect injection site for your desired results. That said, fat transfer can be quite taxing on the fat itself. Some of the fat will be reabsorbed into your body. This means that it may take up to two sessions in order to get the final desired results you want. Once the procedure is finished you’ll be able to return home.
Results and Recovery
The amount of downtime you’ll be required to observe will vary with the extent of your procedure. The more fat donated and injected, the longer your body is likely to need in order to fully recovery. You can expect swelling immediately after the procedure, and that swelling can last anywhere between three and six weeks. However, after the swelling subsides, you should notice a more youthful contour to the Labia Majora area. As noted above, due to the way that some fat can be resorted after the transfer, it may take an additional procedure in order to get the final result you’re after.
The results themselves are largely permanent. The fat that has been grafted is generally happy and healthy in its new home, and most women who undergo the procedure report high satisfaction with the final results. Dr. Bosbous is a board certified plastic surgeon with a great deal of experience in the area of vaginal rejuvenation, so he has a great understanding of how to best generate your desired results.
Labia Majora fat graft procedures are also quite susceptible to changes incurred during recovery.

It’s important to your final results that you follow these recovery instructions as carefully as possible.
