Labiaplasty Cost and Financing
Most plastic surgeons would agree that getting a
labiaplasty is not for everyone. It is a very delicate procedure with known risks. Moreover, not all can afford the
average labiaplasty cost and related fees. Financing options may be limited to a select group of people further
restricting access to the procedure.
Despite these factors there is a rising percentage of women who are seeking
labiaplasty along with other vaginal cosmetic surgery procedures as part of the "designer vagina" trend. More than
anything else, sexuality awareness through traditional media and Internet access are opening up avenues for people
to develop an interest for related vaginal rejuvenation methods such as vaginoplasty, hymenoplasty and clitoral
Candidates for Labiaplasty
For majority of cases, labiaplasty patients are screened for suitability for the
procedure. Those who are of poor health or suffers from bleeding disorders may be discouraged from having a labia
procedure. As a rule, labial reduction is not an appropriate surgery unless the patient’s labia is truly damaged,
deformed, enlarged or protruding and may be a source of pain or low self-esteem.
Average Labiaplasty Cost
In today’s economy, labiaplasty cost may itself be a determinant whether a patient
is suitable for the surgery. The average price of labiaplasty ranges from $3,000 to as much as $10,000 or more.
Some savings can be availed when the labiaplasty is performed in conjunction with vaginoplasty.
As far as financing goes, health insurance companies do not usually cover
labiaplasty cost and fees. However, if the enlarged labia condition causes considerable pain some of the expense
may be considered for insurance coverage. Consult with your insurance provider prior to the operation to determine
eligibility. Many cosmetic surgery clinics offer in-house financing for most plastic surgery procedures and may
include financing for labiaplasty costs.
