Labia Majora Augmentation Labiaplasty via Fat Transfer
Welcome to your guide to Augmentation Labiaplasty of the Labia Majora via Autologous Fat Transfer (autologous means your own fat). Take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with the procedure and what you can do to ensure a result you will love. Remember, this presentation does not take the place of your consultation and you should make sure to jot down any questions you may want to ask us later.
Many women seek Augmentation Labiaplasty of the Labia Majora via Autologous Fat Transfer because they want to improve the contour of their labia majora by increasing the size, enhancing the shape, correct proportional imbalances, and improve firmness. The best candidate for this procedure is a physically healthy, person with good-elastic skin, and with realistic goals.
How will your Augmentation Labiaplasty of the Labia Majora via Autologous Fat Transfer (AFT to the labia majora) be performed?
Typically performed on an outpatient basis, AFT to the labia majora can last between fifteen minutes to thirty minutes (if one is just having enough fat removed just to do the procedure which would be about 24 cc total). The most common techniques include tumescent Liposculpturing and autologous (your own) fat transfer to the labia majora.
Some suggestions to help you prepare for surgery.
During you consultation you should be very open; provide all of your medical history and list all of the medications, vitamins, and herbs you are taking (even if you don’t think they’re important).
Here are some tips that may help you shorten your recovery time and decrease your chances of complications.
- Discontinue using Aspirin (including medications that contain Aspirin), Ibuprofen, Naprosyn, St. John’s Wort, Vitamin E and other supplements as directed. These act as blood thinners and could cause excessive bruising, bleeding or other complications. We will give you a complete list of medications and herbal supplements to avoid prior to your procedure.
- Stop smoking for at least two weeks before and one week after surgery, as nicotine can impair circulation and healing.
- Don’t drink alcohol in excess for two week before your liposculpturing procedure and one week after the surgery.
- Drink lots of water in the days leading up to your liposculpturing procedure.
To make your recovery easier and more comfortable be sure to:
- Arrange for someone to take you home and take care of you for at least the first day. For out of town, national and international patients, private nursing care, private recovery centers and hotel accommodators can be made through our office.
- Fill your prescriptions and place them within easy reach of where you well be resting.
Place plenty of pillows, a spare compression and hand towels for drainage nearby.
You should expect some bruising, swelling and discomfort after your procedure. Swelling may linger for as long as a couple weeks. Pain medication will be prescribed to control any discomfort, however, if you begin to have severe pain, contact us immediately. The recovery process is different for everyone, but the more you get up and move around the better off you will be. At times excess tumescent fluid may drain from the incision points for the first two days or so and you may experience blood tinged fluid as well. You may shower on the second or third day following surgery. Depending on the number of areas treated, you may need to be out of wonk and away from your usual activities for the first week. Over the next two weeks your treated areas may remain very sensitive and strenuous physical activities should be limited. You will also need to wear a special compassion garment for up to a month to help ensure a good contour of your treated areas. Following this period, you may gradually return to activities such or lifting, exercise and sex. Avoid any high impact activities for about one month. In particular you should avoid jogging and bouncing activities for up to six weeks. These procedures will help you avoid stress to your treated areas and allow time for you to heal and recover. All liposculpturing procedures are performed using small incision, about the length of this red line —–, so any scarring will be minimal.
The results of your procedures are usually best seen after six weeks. Your treated areas should look great and retain their sculptured appearance for as long as you remain the same weight. If you gain weight, you will generally gain it in areas other than those that were liposuctioned.
