Labiaplasty in teenagers
Sometimes a labiaplasty can be performed in adolescence if there is a medical need for the procedure. The extent of your problem may provide more insight as to the cost of your procedure.
Labiaplasty for 15 Year Old
To have this procedure done the labia minora needs to be significantly large. You will also need to have parental consent. The procedure normally costs between $2900 and $5900 depending on the type of anesthesia used. Consult a board certified plastic surgeon and get their opinion before proceeding with this procedure.

Labiaplasty Cost & consideration for minors
Labiaplasty for minors do require parental consent. The cost would is usually the same regardless of age and 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.

Labiaplasty for minors
Because you are a minor, you would first have to discuss this with a parent and then with his/her consent both of you follow up with a board certified plastic surgeon or gynecologist who specializes in labiaplasty. Glad I could help...RAS

Labia Reduction for 15 Year Old?
Thank you for the question.
Although I sense an urgency in your question, I think will be best for you to slow down and realize that labial reduction surgery is not an “emergency”. It will be best for you to do your due diligence and find a well experienced board-certified plastic surgeon in your area to seek consultation with. This consultation will be helpful in addressing your concerns and educating you about the procedure as well as the potential risks/complications associated with the procedure.
For example, you will be informed that the presence of redundant labia minora tissue does not necessarily translate into increased risk for the development of cancers.
I hope this helps.
