How Much Does Labiaplasty Cost?

I have looked at labiaplasty before and after pictures on this site and I am very impressed by the difference it can make. But how much would a labiaplasty cost? I would guess it takes a lot of skill to do a labiaplasty right because it is such a sensitive area so it is probably very expensive.

Labiaplasty cost

Thanks for your question - In our San Francisco area practice we offer labiaplasty for patients that have contour problems with the labia minora.

This operation can be easily be done in our procedure room but we also offer the operation under general anesthesia at local hospitals.

Our price is typically between $2500 and $5000 depending on the needs of our patients.

As always - while price can be important be sure to find a qualified board certified plastic surgeon to help you with these issues. I hope this helps.

Labiaplasty cost

Thank you for your question. Costs of cosmetic surgery vary according to geographical location, experience of the doctor, and other factors. Usually, though, labiaplasty is in the range of several thousands dollars, most often definitely less than ten thousand. The most important this is to not compromise on the quality of the physician, specifically that they are certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and that they do this operation often. I refer you to my blogpost below to find out exactly what it is that you pay for with surgery. Make sure that all the costs, namely the surgical fee, the anesthesia fee, and most importantly the facility fees are fully disclosed. Good luck, and hope this helps.

Cost of labioplasty in Canada.

As cosmetic procedures go a labioplasty is fairly inexpensive.  The reason is that it can be done under local anesthesia.  The recovery time is also fairly short because my patients don't have to take alot of time off work therefore little loss of income from days off.  The price ranges from $2700-3500 depending on whether the procedure is done in a private setting or in the hospital.

Labiaplasty costs

HI,

I typically perform labiaplasty under local anesthesia with mild oral sedation. This is very well tolerated and uniformly regarded by patients who have had the procedure as the "way to go". The cost is approximately $3700. If you wish to have a clitoral unhooding at the same time the cost is increased by $500.By avoiding the OR and general anesthesia, you save a significant amount of money.I hope this helps.

Costs for a labiaplasty

Labiaplasty is a more common procedure than you may think. I have performed them under local anesthesia, under oral sedation and local anesthesia, intravenous sedation and general anesthesia. The cost depends on the amount of tissue to be removed, the actual procedure needed and the type of anesthesia required by the patient. The cost for a labiaplasty that includes reduction of the labia minora length and excess skin varies across the nation from $1650.00 - 7500.00. In my practice, the cost is $1,650.00 for the surgical fee, about $550.00 - 750.00 for the facility, and $425.00 if general or intravemous sedation is required.

Labiaplasty may cost between $5000 and $8000

Labiaplasty costs, as with any cosmetic procedure, can vary. Every situation is different. Most patients who request a labiaplasty desire improvement in the appearance of the labia minora. However, some patients also request a labiaplasty of the labia majora (outer lips) and some may benefit from clitoral hood reduction as well as liposuction of the mons pubis.

Costs will also vary depending on whether the procedure is performed in the office or in a surgicenter and whether it is performed only under local anesthesia or with anesthesia delivered by an anesthesiologist.

Labiaplasty costs are very variable

Hi there,

As the others have mentioned, the costs are variable and will depend on whether you are interested in improving the vulva alone, or also the vaginal canal, whether a laser is used, and whether your procedure can be performed in the office setting or an operating room. Fees are usually between $2500 and $5000. I hope that helps.

Costs of Labiaplasty

I am frequently asked about the cost of a labiaplasty procedure.
It can vary tremendously depending on what needs to be done. With that in mind, a labiaplasty can involve a one or two sided labia minora reduction, labia majora augmentation/reduction, clitoral hood reduction, labia minora/majora revision, etc.

It can be done under local or general anesthesia in an office, surgicenter or hospital. Depending on what needs to be done, these procedures begin at about $2500 (low end) and may proceed up to $15,000.

It is possible that your insurance may cover a portion of the procedure. However the only way to ascertain your insurance coverage is to submit a letter of predetermination of benefits to your insurance carrier after completing a history and physical examination.

Due to the paperwork and time involved, physicians will typically charge if an insurance letter is to be submitted in contrast to self-pay cosmetic consultations.

Alternatively, there are options for financing your procedure through companies.
