Frequently Asked Questions
What is Labial Puff?
Labia majora augmentation, also known as “Labial Puff” is a procedure that adds volume and plumpness to the labia majora (outer lips), decreasing the deflated, wrinkled appearance of the vulva. Labial puff in conjunction with labia minora reduction and clitoral hood reduction can rejuvenate the vulva and create a more youthful, aesthetic look to the vaginal area!
What are the benefits of a Labial puff?
Due to genetics, weight loss, aging, and/or hormones, the labia majora may begin to lose laxity and its youthful plumpness. Many women find that they are unhappy with their now deflated and wrinkled appearance. Plumping up the labia majora can improve the size, shape, contour, symmetry, and firmness of the labia majora and even conceal the labia minora.
How is Labial puff performed?
Labia majora augmentation can be done using either your own fat or a filler. Autologous fat, fat harvested from your own body, produces a permanent result, with at least 50% of the fat injected surviving permanently. The fat is usually harvested from the inner thighs or abdomen and then injected into the labia to achieve a fuller, more plump appearance.
How much does Labiaplasty cost in Chicago?
The cost of labia majora augmentation in Chicago can range from approximately $3,000 to $7000 depending on how many procedures are performed in conjunction. Additional procedures may include clitoral hood reduction, labia minora reduction or augmentation, vaginal tightening, or hymen repair.
Does my labia need puffing? Am I a candidate?
Labia majora augmentation (labial puff) may be right for you if you naturally have a small or thin labia majora or are experiencing laxity, deflation, or wrinkling due to fat loss, aging and hormone changes.

What is the recovery like?
After a Labial Puff you can expect to have some swelling and discomfort of the vulvar area which can last for 2 weeks or more. You will be instructed to apply ice to the area a few times a day for the first week and to keep the area clean with warm water washes. Most patients will find comfort in sitting on a soft pillow. You can usually return to work in less than one week and resume exercises in 2-3 weeks. You will be asked to abstain from sexual activity for 6 weeks. Swelling and fat resorption can take up to 3 months to fully occur when you can see your final result!
