Non-Surgical Vaginal Augmentation
Over time, just like our face or other areas of our body, our vagina changes, losing volume and shape.
The Non-Surgical Vaginal Augmentation involves the use of Hyaluronic Acid to fill-up hollow vagina lips (labia major) and improve the overall appearance of the vagina lips.
What’s involved in the Non-Surgical Vaginal Augmentation?
Hyaluronic Acid is injected into the vagina lips (labia major), to provide a fuller and more aesthetically pleasing vagina.
What types of Hyaluronic Acid products are used?
At Bella Plastic Surgery we use only the highest quality Hyaluronic Acid products to achieve long-lasting results.
Hyaluronic Acid is comprised of complex sugar molecules which are naturally occurring within your body, and which bind with water to support your skin and increase volume.
Does this treatment hurt?
At Bella Plastic Surgery we use quick-acting topical anaesthetic to numb the areas prior to treatment and this allows for a comfortable injectable treatment for our patients.
What is the recovery time?
This treatment may cause some bruising and swelling in the treated areas which can persist for up to a week (or longer) following treatment so please ensure that you factor the downtime into your day-to-day commitments.
Every non-surgical procedure involves a certain amount of risk, and it is important that you understand these risks and the possible complications associated. The majority of patients do not experience the following, but you should discuss each possible risk with your physician to ensure that you understand the risks and can make an informed decision regarding your treatment.
Common side effects may occur immediately or maybe delayed and include but are not limited to the following:
- Inflammatory Reactions (swelling, Skin redness)
Other adverse reactions may include:
- Induration or nodules
- Skin Discoloration
- Weak filling effect
- Infections including abscesses, granuloma, hypersensitivity
Extremely rare but serious adverse events associated with intravascular injection of Hyaluronic Acid products have been reported and include temporary and permanent visual impairment, blindness, cerebral ischemia or cerebral haemorrhage, leading to stroke, skin necrosis, and damage to underlying structures.
The following are very common side effects after treatment and should resolve with time.
- Puncture Marks
To prevent and/or help minimise any bruising after your treatment:
- Application of a cold compress to the treatment area immediately and for at least 15minutes after.
- The regular intermittent application of cold packs during the first 24-48 hours may be beneficial. A cycle to consider is 10min on and 5min off.
- Sleep with the head elevated for the first evening.
- Vigorous exercise can increase blood pressure and aggravate any bruising that is developing – therefore, exercise should be avoided for the first 24 hours.
- You should avoid extreme heat for the first 24hrs (or until bruising has resolved).
- Topical creams that may help with bruising – reduction in the development and helping in the resolution.
- Arnica cream – apply liberally to affected area 3-4 x per day until resolution.
- Vitamin k cream – apply liberally to affected area 3-4 x per day until resolution.
Final Results – Your final results can take 2 -4 weeks. You will require further treatments to achieve your desired results.
