Labiaplasty: Cost in Cleveland, Ohio
Thank you for your question. The price for labiaplasty is dependent upon the experience of the surgeon, the amount of surgery needed, the region of the country, and the cost of anesthesiology/surgical facility if necessary.
In general, the more experienced cosmetic surgeon with better results, a more involved labiaplasty, larger cities (example, Manhattan, Chicago, Los Angeles), and time in the operating room are all factors that result in a high cost. These are factors that determine costs for cosmetic genital surgery.
I hope that this answer helped.

I have been performing labiaplasty (labia minora reduction) for many years in Cleveland, Ohio. The standard surgery is typically performed under local anesthesia with mild oral sedation ( meaning that you don't need to go asleep) and costs around $3500. Of course, the procedure can also include clitoral hood reduction, labia minora reduction or augmentation and vaginoplasty. Each of these adds time and expense to the main procedure. The vast majority of my patients state that the procedure was easy to tolerate and the post operative recovery was fairly mild. Labia Reduction can also be easily combined with other procedures in the OR.

Cost of labiaplasty procedure
Labiaplasty is a surgical technique to reduce the amount of skin and mucosal tissue in the labia of a female patient. This is performed to rejuvenate the appearance of the labia and to improve the patient's comfort. Patients who have these conditions or are self-conscious about the appearance of their labia may be candidates for this procedure.
A labiaplasty procedure is commonly performed as an outpatient procedure. The final price will depend on the amount of time that the surgery will take and the type of anesthesia as well as the setting in which the surgery will be performed.

I perform all of my labioplasty procedures under local anesthesia with IV twilight sedation. By using a little sedation I feel the procedure is better tolerated because you are in a light sleep. With twilight anesthesia the procedure is usually performed within an hour.
Thus, the total cost for labioplasty in my AAAASF accredited surgery center is approximately $3700-$3900 to include surgeon's fee, anesthesia, and operating room fee.
Labia Minora reduction cost
As with all cosmetic procedures, the cost will vary depending on the surgeon , the region, and the type of procedure. A labia minora reduction under local anesthesia on the low end may be $1600-2000.
Labiaplasty and costs
Thank you for your inquiry.
I know you want a quick price estimate but 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 $3000 (low end) and may proceed up to $15,000.
However they generally total about $4700 for two-sided labia minora reduction under local in the office Clitoral hood reduction may add up to $750.

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. .
