What Happens During a Labia Puffing Procedure?
Labia puffing is a procedure that is gaining more and more popularity, and with good reason, as well – it can help change the way women feel about their body, the way their body looks, and more self-confidence when wearing certain clothing. The labia puffing procedure is an easy procedure with a quick recovery time, and it can be done in your doctor’s office with little risk. So what happens during a labia puffing procedure, exactly?
Have a Consultation with your Doctor
The first step in your labia puffing procedure is to have a consultation with your doctor. During this, your doctor will help you learn what to expect from the procedure and answer any questions that you might have.
During the Procedure
During the labia puffing procedure, you should expect minimal pain and discomfort, as a numbing agent is applied beforehand. If you are dealing with a lot of anxiety about the procedure, it can be performed under local or general anesthesia, although not always necessary.
Next, a small needle will be placed into an area that has fat tissue in it, such as the thighs or the buttocks, and some of the excess fat will be removed from the area. After the fat tissue is removed from that area, it is injected into the labia in order to create a fuller-looking labia, thus “puffing” it up. Since the fat that was extracted comes from your own body, there is almost no risk of an allergic reaction from the procedure, which makes it incredibly safe. These injections are also long-lasting, making them an ideal choice for someone who is looking for a safe, longer-lasting approach to typical fillers.
After the Procedure
Since the procedure is a simple, outpatient procedure, there is very little to no downtime. Some women even find that they like to take off work early, have it done that same day, and then continue with their activities after the procedure.
While you may notice some slight bruising, pain, and redness from the injections, this tends to clear up after a few days, and rarely causes any adverse problems, such as infection. Ice and a lidocaine spray can help reduce any pain that may be present in the area.
