Labiaplasty is now one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures for women. But since labiaplasty is not normally covered by health insurance, one important question women considering the procedure have to ask is – How much does a labiaplasty cost. Contrary to what many women think, labiaplasty is actually very affordable.
Labiaplasty is a procedure that is done to improve the external structures of the vagina, usually the inner tissue of the vagina known as the labia minora. The procedure is frequently done for cosmetic purposes but some women choose labiaplasty in order to resolve symptoms such as irritation, pain, and itching. Labiaplasty takes about 1 hour to perform.
Factors that affect the cost of labiaplasty
When reviewing the cost of labiaplasty, there are several factors to consider including the skill and experience of the surgeon, and the geographic location of the practice.
A highly skilled surgeon that has a lot of experience performing labiaplasty may quote a higher price, but patients should always verify the qualifications and experience of their surgeon. In addition, practices located in large cities generally charge more for surgical procedures due to higher overheads.
The cost of labiaplasty may also be impacted by the extent of the procedure.
How much does a labiaplasty cost?
The average cost of labiaplasty is about $3,500, but the price can vary significantly from the average based on the factors mentioned above. The cost of labiaplasty typically includes the surgeon’s fee, as well as the cost for the anesthesiologist, surgical facility, blood work, and pre and post-surgical appointments (click here for more info).
