Saggy Labia After Menopause: Causes & How to Treat It
Menopause can be a tricky time. The hormonal changes the body goes through can influence both physical and mental health, which can at times be difficult to navigate. One aspect of menopause that deserves more attention is the physical changes it causes to the vulva, most notably the labia.
At Dr SW Clinics, we’re committed to abolishing the taboo around women’s intimate health during and after menopause. Dr Sherif Wakil’s O Concept™ offers a range of regenerative treatment options for saggy labia, empowering women to effectively address these changes and restore their intimate function and confidence.
In this blog, we’ll explore the main causes of saggy labia after menopause, and what treatments we offer to effectively treat it. Our goal is to help you navigate this phase of life confidently, with the knowledge that you’re not alone, and there are treatments out there to help. So, let’s get started!
What Causes Saggy Labia After Menopause?
Changes in labial tissue post-menopause are intricately tied to the declining levels of oestrogen, a key hormone that plays a crucial role in maintaining the elasticity of skin and tissues in the genital area.
As oestrogen levels decrease, the supportive structures weaken, which causes the sagging labial skin that many women may experience.
Other causes of saggy labia may include:
Ageing: The natural ageing process affects the collagen and elastin in our skin, which contributes to sagging in different areas of the body, including the labia.
Childbirth: The stretching and strain experienced during childbirth can result in changes to the structure of the labia, potentially leading to sagging over time. Genetics: Some women may be genetically predisposed to have less elastic skin, making them more prone to saggy labia.
Weight fluctuations: Significant weight loss or gain can affect the tightness of the skin in the genital area.
Here at Dr SW Clinics, we recognise that no two women are the same, and neither are her post-menopausal experiences.
As part of the O Concept™, pioneered by our very own Dr Sherif Wakil, we’re proud to offer 60+ different regenerative and functional treatments designed to redefine sexual health and intimacy. All completely natural and personalised to each individual, these treatment options for saggy labia, include:
Our O-Shot® treatment is a groundbreaking procedure that uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to enhance sexual function, sensitivity, and overall satisfaction. By contributing to a more youthful-looking and revitalised vulva, the O-Shot® successfully addresses sagging labial skin.
Using FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, our Labia Fillers treatment works to effectively restore volume to the labial tissues. It helps to give a more proportional appearance to the vulva while improving symmetry for a more rejuvenated appearance.
Labia Augmentation with Lipogems:
This innovative technique of our Labia Augmentation with Lipogems treatment involves utilising your body’s own adipose (fat) tissue to naturally augment the labia. By reintroducing stem cells, adipocytes and pericytes into the labial tissue, the treatment stimulates healthy new cells to regenerate and replenish the skin.
