The Daily Star reports that a growing number of women are opting to have their labia "puffed." This 30-minute non-surgical procedure, an alternative to the slightly more invasive "vagina lift," promises to make your labia majora look like they did when you were a minora.
So how does one puff a set of labia? Simple. Fat from elsewhere in the patient's body is extracted through liposuction, put into a hypodermic needled, and injected directly into the labia majora. Filling out the labia in this way supposedly eliminates wrinkles, droopy skin, and all the other natural effects of aging. Plastic surgeon Dr. Jennifer Walden described the benefits of labia needling to the Star:
The vagina, like the rest of our bodies, loses volume (from collagen and fatty tissue) and fullness with age as well as laxity of the skin. Plumping the labia majora gives it a more youthful appearance. The benefit of labia puffing is that it uses you own fat from another area of your body to add volume back to an area that deflates with time. This makes it look great as it immediately refills it to an appearance similar to what it may have looked like prior to childbearing and/or menopause.
A menopausal mother of five can have the vagina of a 19-year-old? What an age we live in! But while rejuvenating your privates by sticking a needle into them may seem ideal, there is a catch: it's pricey. The procedure currently costs between $2,500-$3,500. How ironic that labia puffing will leave the folds of your wallet hanging loose and empty.
Would you consider having your labia puffed? Or do you think this is just another attempt to manipulate women into being insecure about a new part of their body, so hustlers can profit off it? After all, anybody who gets face-to-face with your genitals and judges them for looking "old" is not a person worth impressing. It's a vagina, not a used Camry.
