Labia Puffing

What is Labia Puffing?

Labia puffing is a procedure wherein the labia majora is enhanced or made to look more symmetrical via fat transfer. The surgeon extracts fat from the thighs, buttocks, or other parts of the body and inserts it into the labia majora. This procedure is especially popular amongst women seeing signs of aging or asymmetry in their labial tissues. Dr. Aram Bonni follows a highly-specialized and curated labia puffing procedure to ensure optimal aesthetic results without harsh side effects, long recovery periods, or obvious signs of cosmetic work.

You’re a Candidate for Labia Puffing if You…

  • Detect signs of aging in your labial tissues, such as a loss of elasticity or labial laxity.
  • Want to reverse the signs of aging or enhance the labia’s elasticity.
  • Have “sagging” labial tissues.
  • Have an asymmetric labia majora with one side longer or fuller than the other.
  • Want to enhance the aesthetic appearance of the labia, making it fuller and smoother.

Dr. Bonni’s Labia Puffing Procedure

Labia puffing is a painless, simple, and in-office procedure performed under local anesthesia, with or without sedation. You can opt for sedation if you’re anxious, but it’s not necessary. Dr. Aram Bonni’s labia puffing procedure concludes in 30 to 40 minutes with little-to-no downtime, allowing you to resume your daily activities without delays. The procedure can be performed using Juvederm fillers or fat grafts from other parts of your body, according to your preference and the surgeon’s recommendations.

During this minimally invasive procedure, Dr. Bonni delivers local anesthesia and collects fat tissues from the donor site chosen during the initial consultation. The most popular donor sites include the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks. Once the fat tissues are harvested, they’re injected into the labia majora. There’s no risk of rejection or allergies because it’s an autologous procedure, i.e., the fat comes from your body. There’s no downtime, and you can resume your daily activities immediately.

Recovering from Your Labia Puffing

As mentioned above, labia puffing is a minimally invasive procedure without downtime or harsh side effects. You might experience mild redness, swelling, bruising, and discomfort around the injection sites and donor areas. However, the side effects are mild, manageable with pain medications, and dissipate within a few days. You can resume your daily activities immediately, but you should follow a few simple aftercare guidelines. You should keep the labial regions clean and dry and use ice packs or lidocaine spray to ease discomfort.

Risks of Labia Puffing

Labia puffing is a completely safe procedure with minimal side effects and negligible risk of complications. The risks are even lower because it’s an autologous procedure, i.e., it uses products derived from your own body, negating the risk of infections or rejection. Furthermore, you can reduce the risk further if you avoid local anesthesia. However, like all medical treatments, it carries a few mild side effects and possible risks.

The following are the side-effects and potential risks of labia puffing (rare as they might be):

  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Redness
  • Itching
  • Infection
  • Bleeding
  • Fever
  • Rash
  • Pain
  • Lumps
  • Unevenness
