Labia majora naturally comes in different shapes and different sizes. It’s not uncommon for women to have baggy labia. If you’ve noticed a volume loss in the labia majora region, you may wonder if there are ways to rejuvenate the area. There are multiple options for adding more volume to the labia majora, and we’ll explore them here.
Labia Majora – What is it?
Labia majora is the outermost skin that folds surrounding the labia minora, vaginal opening, clitoris, and urethra, along with various glands. Labia majora means “large lips,” which are the skin that folds and protects the delicate interior areas of the vagina. The region where the hair grows is the exterior surface of the labia majora.
What Causes Volume Loss Labia Majora
There can be several reasons for Volume loss in the labia majora:
- Significant changes in weight
- Hormonal changes
Estrogen is a hormone that maintains fatty tissue in the labia majora, making the folds look and feel plump and youthful. During menopause, the labia majora becomes thinner and less elastic when estrogen production decreases.
What are the side effects of loose labia?
When the labia majora has lost its fullness and doesn’t have enough fatty tissue to be stored in it, then it can appear loose. Patients may also experience flapping and discomfort.
Natural changes in your body may cause a decrease in the volume of the labia majora or outer lips of the vagina. There are creams that you can apply for temporary volume to this region.
What causes loose labia skin, and how can you make it tight again?
If you want your labia majora skin to be tighter, read the following tips. With cosmetic procedures, you can address the issue of loose vaginal skin or sagging vagina lips. The first procedure most people have heard about when looking for vaginal rejuvenation is labiaplasty, a cosmetic surgery that removes excess labia minora tissue. This is only helpful with the removal of the extra labia minora tissue that is protruding. There are other options besides surgery that are less invasive.
What is Labia Majora Filler?
With labia puff or labia enhancement rejuvenation, you can plump up the appearance of your vagina. Dermal fillers are used to make your lips look fuller as well as your face, so they can also be used in the lips and labia region. This non-surgical option adds hyaluronic acid to add volume with injections that only require a local numbing anesthetic. It only takes 30 minutes to complete. This procedure needs to be done annually and is not permanent, which means you need to continue to repeat this procedure because the filler will gradually absorb into the body. This dermal filler is used for vaginal treatments to enhance sexual experiences.
What is THERMIva®?
There is one more option when it comes to tightening the labia skin. THERMIva® is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that can rejuvenate your labial areas and vagina between births to improve tightness, strength, and appearance. THERMIva® helps improve vaginal moisture and addresses atrophy (dryness and thinning of the vaginal and labial skin). There is a noticeable increase in comfort during and after sex, even without using hormones. Patients with hormone-dependent cancer, such as Breast Cancer, now have a potential solution for dryness and painful sex.
Internal tightening and collagen production are the primary objectives of THERMIva®. Tightening loose skin is done on a cellular level and is painless, with no recovery time required.
THERMIva® also improves blood flow with gradual, gentle, painless heat. Increased blood flow to nerves helps nerve function.
Fat Grafting for the Labia Majora
Fat grafting or fat transfer harvests your fat from another region of your body to add volume to your Labia Majora. This procedure combines liposuction surgery and is highly safe because your body’s fat cells are transferred to another area. In addition, it means your body recognizes them as a part of the body, reducing the risk of rejection. This fat injection can last for many years and provides a soft, plump, natural feel since it is the body’s natural biological.
When you age, your labia majora loses volume. It is natural and typically happens in a patient’s life when they feel self-confident and comfortable. Rejuvenating your labia can give them a more youthful appearance.
