Labial rejuvenation can be volumized with Hyaluronic Acid (HA) and has been reported to improve the aesthetic aspect of the external genitalia. Adverse effects of HA injection reported are local reactions, including bruise, erythema, swelling, granuloma and infection in facial aspect. Like facial injection of HA, complication may occur in genital procedure. We report an interesting case complicated with lump formation, mimicking bilateral testicle of vulva after labia majora augmentation with HA. This complication can be resolved by extraction of HA from the local lesion. The patient recovered well uneventfully.
