Labia augmentation using fat transfer is a simpler procedure among the plethora of vaginal rejuvenation procedures that involves taking fat from your own body using liposuction and injecting it into the vulva to plump up the labia majora region.
Cosmetic gynaecology was one of the very less known branches of gynaecology in the world and in India a decade ago. The services were opted only by elite women and celebrities who wanted to keep their youthful looks in every part of their body. However, with more affordable solutions and awareness, cosmetic gynaecology is now a pretty popular subject among many women.
Labiaplasty procedure usually deals with shaping the labia minora and in some cases can include thinning the labia majora.
Labiaplasty is done in two ways:
Using trim labiaplasty technique
Using wedge labiaplasty technique.
Vaginoplasty surgery is done to tighten a loosened vagina. When I say, ‘loose vagina’ or ‘loosened vagina’, many may say that vagina doesn’t become loose because of the elastic nature of the underlying muscles. That is not entirely true.
Cellulite refers to the collection of fat (enlarged fat cells under the skin actually) under the skin and above the muscle that makes the skin look lumpy like chunks of cotton balls. This is not really a condition that needs to be worried about but it surely doesn’t help the skin look good.
ThermiVA(r) is a radiofrequency machine that emits radio frequency waves that are just powerful enough to generate the right amount of heat inside and outside the vagina. Heating up the muscles and tissues in and outside the vagina triggers the production of collagen, thus bringing back the tightness and life into the loosened muscles in the pelvic region.
Unlike the rest of the body, thighs have less fibrous tissue as a result of which, the fat formed in this region may not look even and is soft that can be easily removed with a cannula during liposuction. Interestingly saddlebags are found more in women than men.
During the process of vaginal rejuvenation, apart from removing and reshaping the outer look of the vagina, laser is used on the muscles around the vagina, bladder and rectum. This helps in tightening them along with an increase in production of collagen that helps muscles fix the tears and become strong.
“One most common reason I see in my patients who come with darker inner thighs problem is ‘obesity’ or ‘being overweight’” says Dr. Deepa Ganesh, popular cosmetic gynaecologist in at DG Laser & Cosmetic Gynecology Clinic, Chennai.
In our previous article, we have covered about ‘Mini tummy tuck’ where in the just the lower bottom of the abdomen is corrected. In an extended tummy tuck (which is similar to abdominoplasty procedure), the fat from the love handles (or side flanks) and lower back is also removed. This should sound as a boon to many people who work out regularly but still find it hard to lose those love handles.
Mini tummy tuck refers to the surgical procedure in which a little ‘bloated’ kind of abdomen is brought into shape. This is a less invasive surgery than regular tummy tuck, also called abdominoplasty. The surgery is performed between the belly button and the pubic area, usually referred to as the lower abdomen. Mini tummy tuck should be opted when you have worked on your diet, have been regular exercises but none of them could help you in reshaping your abdomen.
Are you thinking of going for a tummy tuck surgery immediately after you delivery your baby via C-section surgery? Tummy tuck (also called abdominoplasty) is a surgery done to correct the shape of abdomen by adjusting the muscles and removing the extra skin to bring you back into shape post delivery. If you are thinking that combining both into a single surgery (though it is longer) so that you can save some time, then this article is for you.
C-section involves two major incisions:
a. Incision on the abdominal area
b. Incision to the uterus
Along with these, many tissues and nerves need to be cut and disturbed during the surgery. If you underwent cesarean surgery to deliver your baby, you need to be very careful while you heal and need to follow your gynecologist’s instructions religiously.
