Labia Fat Transfer

Fat transfer is a very useful adjunctive procedure for volumisation and contouring in cosmetic surgery and it is gaining increasing popularity as the regenerative benefits are also being recognised. 

Whilst the original technique was originally popularised by Sydney Coleman in New York (also called lipo-filling or lipostructure) for use in the face, as mentioned elsewhere on this site, it has found a role in volumising the breast and other areas too. In the world of aesthetic gynaecology and female genital cosmetic surgery, it is also increasingly popular for patients to ask for ‘puffing’ up the labia majora to give a more youthful appearance to the outer lips or labia majora.

The down-time for this fat transfer procedure is generally very short and most people on average can return to work anywhere between one to seven days later depending on whether one or more procedures has been performed and the size of the donor site harvesting. Light activities can be resumed according to patient comfort. Normal activities can usually be resumed after a couple days (except heavy exercise) – Mr Banwell and his team will be able to give further information.

FAT TRANSFER FOR LABIA MAJORA ENHANCEMENT (LABIAL PUFF)

Fat transfer for labia majora enhancement is a fairly simple forward procedure to perform technically. Fat may be harvested from a donor site (usually abdomen or outer thighs)and then injected into the outer labia (‘outer’ lips or labia majora) with microcannulae. As with all fat transfer, it relies on the fat grafts to survive by developing a new blood supply in the recipient site (in this case the labia majora). Over correction is usually recommended as there is a degree of absorption after this procedure so please feel free to ask Mr Banwell or his team for further information on these indications.

COST OF LABIAL MAJORA FAT TRANSFER

The cost of labial fat transfer comprises the surgical fee, the hospital fee and the anaesthetic fee (if applicable). Mr Banwell’s team would be happy to provide package price estimates (which may differ slightly depending on the hospital and anaesthetic costs). Please feel free to call the clinic on 01342 330302 or email help@paulebanwell.com

BRAS & GARMENTS

Mr Banwell recommends that the majority of this kind of surgery is best performed under a general anaesthetic undertaken by a specialist anaesthetist.

Usually the operation is performed as a day case. Most people report that discomfort and swelling in the first few days are minor. Paracetamol is usually all that is required for pain relief.. It is necessary to take things easy for the first few days and sleep on your back. Mr Banwell, the hospital nurses and Mr Banwell’s team would be delighted to be of help.

There are both general and specific risks and Mr Banwell will talk to you in detail regarding the risks and where they stem from. General risks include bruising and swelling, bleeding, wound infection, problems with general anaesthetics. Specific risks include uneven or asymmetrical results, including lumpiness and dimpling, skin discolouration, loss of sensation (temporary loss of sensation almost always occurs and recovers after some months) and the need for repeat procedures. Fat does absorb so further procedures may be required.

I asked around and was told that Mr Banwell was the best in his field. I don’t know what my expectations were but the result was great, all my friends think my eyes look brighter and more open. I had no bruising which I was told I might have. Mr Banwell and his team excelled in making my life very easy for me, with arrangements and liaising with the hospital which didn’t always have my details correct, they were very helpful and answered all my questions, nothing was too much trouble. Mr Banwell put me at ease and I was not worried about the operation at all.

After the first consultation I felt I was in some of the best hands. I expected to feel more confidence in myself ? this was met and exceeded! I didn?t expect the scars to be so neat and small I am very pleased with them. It was a great experience; there was always someone to contact/speak to with questions and they were all supportive. You will not be disappointed.


Kirstie W.

I was very happy with the care I got from Mr Banwell, his team and the staff at the McIndoe Surgical Centre. Mr Banwell and his team were extremely friendly and quick to meet my needs at all times. The team were very professional and always made me feel at ease and welcome at all my consultations and throughout my stay at the surgical centre. The outcome of my surgery is amazing! I am extremely happy with the results I got; it turned out better than I thought. The surgery has really helped my confidence and way of life and I am very grateful for that. Mr Banwell is a fantastic surgeon with a very friendly and professional approach, which is wonderful. I would definitely, without hesitation, recommend Mr Banwell and his team to others considering cosmetic surgery.


Hannah G.

Mr Banwell explained the details of my procedures in a professional and sensitive manner. He took the time to put me at ease and answer all my questions in a way that I could understand. Each step of my treatment from the initial consultation through to its conclusion was supported by professional who with their support enables me to have an extremely smooth journey through my procedures. For the first time in my adult life I am happy in my own skin. I would recommend Mr Banwell to anyone who has been thinking of cosmetic surgery in a heartbeat. Through his skill and understanding of the female body, he carries out his profession with the utmost care and consideration.


Susan G.

I just want to thank you for all your care, expertise and advice.

Mr Banwell provides an excellent service in pre-operation information, as well as total expertise and attention to detail in surgery. He was very informative and helpful after care.  I received excellent and sympathetic nursing care and anaesthetist. Mr Banwell has a very helpful practice manager and assistant.  My eyes have regained an ‘openness’ similar to my younger years. I no longer look tired.  I would highly recommend Mr Banwell to anyone considering cosmetic surgery.
