How Much Does Labiaplasty Usually Cost?

Cost of Labiaplasty

Since labia vary greatly in shape and size, the amount of work required to conduct a labiaplasty will also vary. This will affect price the most. In my practice, a one-sided labiaplasty will take less time than both sides, a clitoral hood reduction will take more time, dealing with scar tissue will take more time, etc. Like anything else, you should expect quality work to command a higher price.

Labiaplasty Cost

Vaginal Rejuvenation has become a hot topic over the past ten years or so as grooming habits have changed. With the majority of women shaving, waxing or doing some type of grooming they have become more aware of the appearance of their vaginal area.

The term vaginal rejuvenation is a broad term that can be used to encompass several procedures with the overall goal of improving the appearance of the vaginal area.

The most common method for rejuvenation is trimming the labia minora (inner lips) this will remove the excess skin that may hang below the vagina.

The second method is fat grafting to the labia majora (outer lips) this will add volume to the area and improve the deflated appearance that women can have after having children or after weight loss.

The two methods can be done together to give the patient the best overall aesthetic result.

The cost depends on which of these procedures is performed and whether the procedure is performed under local anesthesia or with some type of anesthesia. Many patients have the procedure done under local anesthesia, which makes the cost much lower, and are still extremely comfortable during the procedure.

I would recommend that you consult your board certified plastic surgeon so that you can be evaluated and discuss your options.

Price Varies

Price varies depending on the surgeon and city in which they are located. Prices can range around the $2500 to $4000 mark.

Labiaplasty cost depends on what procedures are required to address your concerns, and whether you are doing this under anesthesia or with straight local anesthetic.  For a straight forward labiaplasty, the cost could be ~3000 - 5000 depending on where you go and if you are adding an operating fee and anesthesia fee.
Hope this helps.

Cost of surgery

Each surgeon’s fees will be different depending on many factors.  Factors such as the certification of the surgeon, the experience of the surgeon, if the surgery is performed in the office or in a hospital / outpatient surgery center, if performed under local anesthesia or general anesthesia and who is administering the anesthesia.  Don’t choose your surgeon ONLY by price, make sure they can achieve your goals.

Labia minora reduction surgery can range from $3500-$5000 in my area.  If you add the labia majora, that will add more time/ expense.

Cost for labiaplasty

The cost depends on many factors. Labiaplasty is a generic term and does not describe what exactly is done surgically. Usually, it refers to reduction of the labia minora or inner lips reduction, but it could involve clitoral hood reduction, labia majora reduction or fat grafting. It also depends on the technique, such as excess labial tissue amputation and oversawing the edges or a wedge excision with a flap reconstruction to maintain normal color and anatomic shape of the labia including preservation of normal sensation, and the regional fees. Costs also include facility fees (hospital vs office surgical suite) and anesthesia including general, intravenous sedation or local anesthesia only. My fees are all inclusive and can be $5400-7500.

Labiaplasty Cost... Be wise when searching!

The often quoted cost for labiaplasty surgery ranges from $2500 - $10,000.

Why is there such a wide range, and, more precisely, what exactly do you receive for your money? 

All labiaplasties are not the same... Buyer Beware

Unfortunately for the general public, the term "labiaplasty" can have a variety meanings, almost rendering a fee quotation, in the absence of additional information, completely useless. Several of the factors contributing to a labiaplasty fee quotation may include the following:


  • The precise nature of the operation (unilateral labiaplasty, bilateral labiaplasty, included clitoral hood reduction, etc.)
  • The type of anesthesia to be used (full general anesthesia, "twilight sleep" or simple local anesthesia)
  • The charges by the surgical facility (hospital, outpatient surgical center or private clinic)
  • The surgeon's experience, expertise and reputation with labiaplasty surgery
  • The precise surgical method to be used (simple removal of excess labial tissue or a carefully planned and executed surgical procedure designed to preserve natural vulvar appearance and sensitivity)
  • The prevailing rates for various other similar surgical procedures within the local community and by which labiaplasty fees are usually influenced

With so many factors coming into play, an advertised labiaplasty price must really be "taken with a grain of salt" until many more details become known!

Cost of labiaplasty

Labiaplasty, which most commonly involves surgical reduction of the labia minora (inner/thinner lips), has become a relatively common procedure over the last ten and even more so last five years.  Whether the surgery is done using a laser, scalpel, or scissors does not really matter but what does matter is "symmetry".  Symmetry is the most important aspect to the final aesthetic result.  Also, it's not how much tissue is removed but how much is left remaining because a certain amount is necessary to maintain proper form and function.  To achieve these two most important elements, it is extremely important to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon that specializes in this operation (does at least 1 - 2 per week).  It may cost you a bit more but it this type of result you will want to live with for the rest of your life.  Typical (all inclusive) fee at my office/surgery center is $4500. 

Best of luck...Ryan A. Stanton, M.D.
