What is Labia Majora Injection?

Labia majora are the hairy area located in the external genital area of women. It is also known as “outer lip” or “labia majora”. Greater genital lip fat filling is a genital aesthetic operation performed for a fuller and younger appearance of this area.

The youthful appearance is achieved thanks to the stem cells located around the fat tissue. The cosmetic results after this genital aesthetic operation, which requires experience, are quite satisfactory.

Large lip fillers can be performed by fat injection, hyaluronic acid injection or collagen injection. In this section, there is detailed information about major lip filling, which is done by taking the person’s own fat and preparing it and then injecting it into the large lips.

Labia majora fat filler is also known as “labia majora augmentation”, “majora augmentation”, “labia majora augmentation” or “labia majora fat injection”.

How is labia majora fat filling performed?

There are three separate stages of the labia majora filler procedure. Fat grafting procedure;

Fat harvesting (harvesting),
Oil processing (processing),
It includes fat filling (lypofilling) processes.

During the application of outer lip fat filling, some cannulas (special pipes) and auxiliary devices are used.

Stages for Outer Lip Filling

Fat harvesting (Harvesting, Lipoaspiration)

Fat harvesting is also known as “lipoaspiration” or “harvesting”. The most frequently preferred area for lipoaspiration is the abdomen. However, it is often impossible to remove abdominal fat in patients who do not have enough fat in the abdominal area, are thin, or have previously undergone abdominoplasty (tummy tuck surgery). Therefore, fat harvesting (lipoaspiration) can be done from the lateral abdomen, inner thigh, outer thigh or mons pubis areas.

How is fat removal done?

Liposuction is most often performed under general or light sedation anesthesia. Thanks to a 3 mm diameter cannula (special tube) entered through the belly button, the fat in the abdominal area is collected into the syringe.

How much fat is collected?

Depending on the needs of the tissue, generally between 20 cc and 100 cc of fat is collected.

Fat Processing

The removed fat is processed in different ways depending on the surgeon’s experience and preference. These:

Centrifuge only,
Washing + Centrifuge,
They are dry (no-touch) techniques.

According to the dry technique, the fat taken from the abdominal area is thinned and then made ready for donation.

If a special solution prepared by the method called “tumescent anesthesia” is injected into the tissue before fat collection, centrifuge or washing + centrifuge techniques are applied.

Fat loss (Lypofilling)

The oil delivery process is done through a 1-1.5 mm oil delivery cannula inserted into small holes opened at the clitoris level. The extracted and thinned fat is administered in equal amounts to different layers of both labia majora.

Labia Majora Fat Filling Procedure

Immediately after the labia majora fat filling procedure, it is gently massaged by hand to ensure that the fat is distributed homogeneously within the tissue.

Is the fat given after the labia majora fat filling procedure permanent?

After the labia majora fat filling operation, a significant part of the fat given is reabsorbed by the body. 6 months after the operation, an average of 30-40% of the injected fat remains permanently. This remaining oil has a long-lasting effect (up to 5 years). However, in cases of rapid weight loss, fat in this area may melt as in other parts of the body. If necessary, the labia majora fat filling procedure can be repeated.

Which genital plastic surgery can be performed simultaneously with labia majora fat injection?

Labia majora fat injection can be performed simultaneously with labiaplasty, vaginoplasty and perineoplasty operations, depending on the condition of the tissue and the patient’s preferences. In addition, genital PRP procedure can be applied in the same session. Genital PRP also increases the permanence of the oil.

In which areas is fat injection applied?

Apart from major lip filling, fat injections can also be performed in different areas. Fat taken from the procedure area;

G spot augmentation
Treatment of cesarean section scars
Treatment of urinary incontinence (stress urinary incontinence)
It can also be used for the treatment of deep skin grooves on the face.

Period after labia majora fat filling and things to consider

It is important to apply ice to the labia minora area in the early period after labia majora fat filling. Day hospitalization patients can be discharged after their check-ups and with prescriptions for antibiotics and painkillers. Immediately after the procedure, bleeding is prevented by providing compression with a bandage applied to the fat removal area. The bandage can be removed after 48 hours.

After fat filling to the big lips;

Avoiding hot showers for a week
Not rubbing the genital area,
Avoiding mechanical impacts,
Not using spas, hot baths and hot pools for a month.
Avoiding wearing tight trousers, horseback riding and cycling.
It is important not to have sexual intercourse, heavy sports, fitness and yoga for a month.

On the other hand, smoking after fat injection into the labia minora will negatively affect both collagen formation and oxygenation of the fat tissue.

Risky pregnancy or high risk pregnancy; These are pregnancies that have an additional disease before or during pregnancy, or where there is a risk of miscarriage or a risk of disability in the baby in the scans.

In cases where normal vaginal birth cannot be performed, the method used is cesarean delivery. In cases where normal birth is considered, a caesarean section can be performed urgently, or a caesarean section decision can be made by prenatal planning. If it is determined that a cesarean section will be performed before birth, the date and time of the procedure can be determined.

Caesarean section is a birth technique performed under operating room conditions and anesthesia. In this procedure, the baby is removed from the mother’s womb by making an incision first in the abdomen and then in the uterus. Then, the incisions are closed with stitches and the birth is completed.

Aginal discharge is the fluid secreted from small glands in the vagina and cervix. This fluid leaks from the vagina every day to flush out old cells and debris, keeping the vagina and reproductive system clean and healthy. Vaginal discharge may occur from normal changes in estrogen levels

In uterine prolapse, the muscle around the vagina, connective tissues, and the nerve that holds the pelvic organs and tissues in place, break as the muscle tissues weaken and prolapse occurs outside the vagina. It occurs due to reasons such as normal birth, insufficient estrogen, and old age.

Sexually transmitted diseases that can be treated are: Syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia, and trichomoniasis. The 4 most common sexually transmitted diseases are; hepatitis B, herpes simplex, HIV (AIDS) and HPV cannot be fully treated
