The most common causes of lost of elasticity and muscle tone are vaginal deliveries and aging.
AUTOLOGOUS FAT TRANSFER TO THE ANTERIOR VAGINAL WALL (G-spot amplification)
For the patient who desires enhancement of her sexual experience and has a history of pelvic floor dysfunction, fat augmentation to the anterior vaginal wall with or without vaginoplasty could improve some of the effects caused by aging and childbirth.
REDUCTION OF THE CLITORAL HOOD
Genital cosmetic surgery that improves the physical appearance of the clitoris reducing the size of the redundant folds of the hood. Enlargement of the clitoral hood can create embarassment during sexual activity or a feeling of decreased stimulation.
LABIAPLASTY MAJORA & AUTOLOGOUS FAT TRANSFER TO THE LABIA MAJORA
Genital cosmetic surgery that improves the physical appearance of the labia majora (outer lips of the vulva) reducing its size and modifying its shape. The labia majora can increase in size by estrogen stimulus during puberty and pregnancy, and with the effects of gravity and excessive weight loss. This enlargement can create an embarrassing bulge in swimsuits and tight clothing and can cause sweating of the vulva with great discomfort.
The labia majora (outer lips of the vulva) can loose volume due to aging and excessive weight loss creating a deflated appearance with looseness and wrinkling of the overlying skin. Fat is harvested from a suitable site (abdomen, thighs) by liposuction in a sterile manner and prepared and injected into the outer lips creating a plump and younger appearance.
Genital cosmetic surgery that improves the physical appearance of the labia minora (inner lips of the vulva) reducing its size and modifying its shape. Enlarged or irregular labia minora can be caused by vaginal deliveries, aging, congenital causes, and can cause irritation, friction, and discomfort during sexual intercourse, physical activities or with the use of tight clothing. Women can choose the size and shape of the inner lips she desires in relation to the labia majora.
