Remember a few years ago when Scientific American reported on lab-grown artificial vaginas being implanted in four teenage girls?
Well, the good news is that women who want to spruce up their cheeky bits do not have to go to those lengths.
Sure, some women might be willing to pay $9000 for a complete overhaul of their plumbing, as reported by the Daily Mail, but for considerably less pain and money, there is another solution – labia puffing.
As with most parts of the body, as women age, the exterior of their vaginas lose some ‘tone’. Labia puffing is designed to restore youthful plumpness by injecting a woman’s own fat or dermal fillers into the parts.
If they choose to use their own fat, it is extracted from another part of the body using liposuction. The procedure involving dermal fillers does not involve surgery and it takes about half an hour to perform.
According to a study published in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal, the dermal fillers, which are made from hyaluronic acid, have “virtually no complications” associated with them, and treatment can be repeated or even reversed.
“Infiltration of the labia majora is able to provide a significant rejuvenation with a simple outpatient procedure. We achieved significant improvements with one infiltration in all cases,” the scientists said.
The claim that this type of cosmetic procedure comes without complications is in dispute, however, with at least one British doctor warning that the dermal jab can lead to nerve paralysis, bleeding and loss of sensation in some women.
Would you ever consider having labial puffing treatment? Would you ever suggest that your partner undergo the treatment?
