PLUMP LOOSE LABIA
Cosmetic injections to enhance the lips are
blooming ... and not just those on the face.
According to internationally renowned
nurse injector Nicole Belle, women are
flocking to her clinics, Face Today, in Sydney
and Cairns to have their external genitalia
restored to former glory with dermal fillers,
along with other non- surgical modalities.
"In the privacy of a closed clinical
environment, with a practitioner with whom
they have developed a close relationship,
deep areas of a patient's insecurity are
revealed -- such as a not liking, or being
downright ashamed of the appearance of
their genitalia," says Nicole.
"I am so often told by women -- and often
while performing other cosmetic procedures
-- that they are embarrassed by their labia,
for instance; that it is inhibiting their sexual
expression and, hence, relationships.
"These concerns are expressed by
women of all ages. `What is normal?' is a
question asked by many young women, and
feeling that their genital shape is `ugly' is an
area of great concern.
"Therefore we will say to our patients:
`Let me see your perceived problem'.
On examination in a standing position,
taking into consideration their deep-
seated concerns and opinion about `what
their Brazilian reveals' we offer them
non-surgical solutions that will give them
the confidence to express themselves with
confidence in their intimate relationships."
One of the main concerns Nicole and
her colleagues see is genital lips that have
been depleted of collagen and elastin
"Depleted fullness in the mons pubis
and labia majora leads to an older-looking
appearance and older woman who would
like a Brazilian wax no longer do so due
to perceived judgement by young
"Knowing there are solutions to
rejuvenate all lips with dermal fillers and
to correct or enhance other aspects of the
nether regions gives hope and excitement
to the menopausal age group. I tell patients:
`Life begins at 50 so let's enjoy every minute
PUMP UP PENIS GIRTH
"For many men, penis size is a sensitive
issue leading to embarrassment,
insecurity and can limit their sex life," says
aforementioned surgeon Dr Jayson Oates,
creator of Calibre, a non- surgical technique
for penile enlargement using hyaluronic
"Guys just want to feel more confident
in their bodies both in literal or
hypothetical locker room scenarios and
with sexual partners.
"I have performed thousands of facial
cosmetic injectable procedures over more
than 15 years, on lips, cheeks, chins, jaws,
temples, eyes, foreheads, noses, hands, so I
started thinking about cosmetic injectable
options for penises. This led me to HA fillers."
Dr Oates and his medical team started
development of the Calibre technique in
2012. Before regularly treating patients
from 2014, they trialled numerous HAs and
refined the technique "which produces
consistently good results", Dr Oates says.
"It is a painless, one-hour, safe procedure
with no down time. After an application of
a numbing cream and using a microcannula
less than three quarters of a millimetre,
many tiny threads of the filler substance are
injected around the whole penis, which is
"Calibre is primarily designed to
increase penile girth and most patients
can achieve 2.5cm increase in flaccid shaft
circumference and 1.2cm--1.8cm increase
in erect circumference, which lasts for up to
"What we didn't expect is that Calibre
also tends to increase f laccid length due to
the additional weight -- more noticeable for
guys who have a lot of `shrinkage'.
"We have had great feedback. Guys
really do feel more confident. Initially I
thought it would just be a `locker room'
benefit; that they would feel better in
situations where their penis may be seen by
"But patients kept coming back and
saying their partner definitely noticed the
difference -- and not just appearance-wise!"
