Why do the labia majora lose tone?
The labia majora can lose tone and volume with age, pregnancy and hormonal changes. With significant laxity, a board-certified plastic surgeon should evaluate the labia majora to determine if they have too much skin and/or too little volume.
How can the appearance of the labia majora be improved?
If the problem is volume loss, a small amount of fat can be injected into each side to recreate the fullness that has been lost. If there is too much skin, a patient may want to consider a labia majoraplasty. If the excess skin or loss of volume isn't dramatic, RF and laser energy can tighten the skin of the labia majora, resulting in a visible change that occurs right away.
