What is a labia majora?
The labia majora or the outer lips of the vulva, is the visible part of the female genitalia. Like all other parts of the human body, the normal aging process has a role to play in the appearance of the vulva. The other contributing factor is how much care is given to maintaining the care of the vulva, research has shown that estrogen plays a key role in the health and wellbeing of the vulva, with menopause and the associated decline of estrogen production being a key watershed for many women. Aging, childbirth, and hormonal changes have an enormous impact on private areas of the body by decreasing the volume of labia majora. It develops the wrinkles in the genital area giving a deflated appearance. Labia majora augmentation is a procedure that restores a healthy, full, and youthful appearance of a vulva. The outer lips of the vulva are augmented either by using autologous fat transfer or hyaluronic based dermal fillers.
