Normally, the walls of the vagina stay lubricated with a thin layer of clear fluid. The hormone estrogen helps maintain that fluid and keeps the lining of the vagina healthy, thick, and elastic.
A drop in estrogen levels reduces the amount of moisture available. It can happen at any age from a number of different causes.
It may seem like a minor irritation, but the lack of vaginal moisture can have a huge impact on a woman’s sex life. Vaginal dryness also makes the vagina thinner and less elastic. This is called vaginal atrophy.
Hyaluronic acid (with specific formulation for intimate feminine problems) is injected at the vagina mucus (side and back walls of the vagina) and at the vestibule (junction between the labia minora [inner lips] and the entry of the vagina) to ensure local hydration and improve the vaginal dryness issue.
Hyaluronic acid can also be injected into the labia majora (outer lips) to increase volume, give a rejuvenated appearance, conceal the labia minora, and give a better appearance by adjusting the proportions between the labia.
Finally, hyaluronic acid can be injected upon scars from painful episiotomy or tearing of the vagina to provide them with some softness while reducing pain and promoting scar healing.
Labiamajora are the outer lips of a woman’s vulva and constitute the visible part of the vulva; they function as a protection for sensitive areas. They are composed of eccrine glands and fat tissue.
Labiamajora atrophy may occur due to age or weight loss or it may be congenital. As with any other part of the body, over time the labia majora will lose fat and look deflated and wrinkled. This may cause a woman’s intimate parts to appear less sensual.
For lipofilling, fat tissues are collected from identified parts of the body by micro-incision using a fine suction cannula (or during a conventional liposuction). The collected fat cells are then subjected to a sterile centrifugation to separate the cells that will be injected (intact fat cells) from the elements that must not be injected (fat cells destroyed by the sample, non-fat cells such as blood cells). Then the re-injection of fat (lipofilling) is performed using micro-cannulas.
The aim of the procedure is to correct atrophy and small size of the labia majora, to reshape them, to make them look younger, and to improve nourishment of the skin with these fat injections.
Nymphoplasty (also called “labiaplasty”) is the correction of excessive growth of the labia minora of a woman’s vulva(inner lips of the vulva which form the hood of the clitoris).
There are women (sometimes due to genetic tendencies and without a triggering cause)who present excessive growth of the labia minora. This can lead to discomfort, pain felt during sexual intercourse, increased urinary tract infections, bad smell, excessive sweating, rubbing, etc.
The shape and appearance of the labia minora can change over time or following childbirth. Patients who consider a nymphoplasty often do so for functional and/or aesthetic reasons, including discomfort caused by friction against clothing, the inability to wear thong-type underwear, hygiene issues, and pain during vaginal penetration.Furthermore, some women may feel embarrassed or lack self-esteem due to their negative perception of this part of their body.
The excess growth (hypertrophy) of the labia minora can be corrected by surgery. Nymphoplasty focuses on improving the appearance of the labia minora in women while preserving the sensitivity of the erogenous zones. The excess tissue is removed from the labia minora and the shape of the labia minora is carefully sculpted. The incisions are then closed using melting stitches, which the body absorbs in approximately two weeks. The scars will be practically invisible after the healing period.
