Is there an age cut off for vaginoplasty? Is it done awake or asleep?
Vaginoplasty general info
Vaginoplasty is done either asleep or awake. I base the decision on your level of comfort and anxiety during the pelvic examination done during your consultation. Health status is more important than age for elective surgery and a general medical examination is a good idea beforehand if you haven't had one recently. Pricing depends on the amount of work required and the type of anesthesia.

anything. Spinal or epidural anesthetic is also an option allowing you to be
awake. This is ideal for those who have a fear of going to sleep or have other
major medical problems. Sedation and use of local anesthetics is the least
invasive of anesthetic options. Many choose this so that #recovery is almost
immediate and the down time is minimal.
If a repair of the bladder, rectum or bowel is needed then a 23 hour overnight stay may be needed. If a hysterectomy is also needed, then it is typical to stay one to two days. Placement of a sling to help with incontinence does not prolong the hospital stay. Many patients feel the pain involved is similar to the discomfort after a baby has been born.
They are somewhat sore but not in agony. #Pain control is excellent in the large
majority of cases.

How much, anesthesia type, age cutoff...
I'm not sure which procedure you're asking about, but if you call our office in Davis, CA and ask for "Nicole," our Care Coordinator, she can pleasantly answer all your questions. For starters, I have attached a good weblink; other areas on the site will give you "patient experiences" & tell you all about all the procedures including Labiaplasty. Lots of good links on the site!
In general, there's no age cutoff, except if you're less than 18 you'll need to have a parent's permission/signature. Anesthesia in our office is usually "local" (safer, easier to recover, less expensive.) Costs will vary with procedure, but when you check on costs with different offices make sure you ask if there are any ADDITIONAL fees for anesthesia, the "surgical facility," and "supplies." We don't charge for these, but many offices do charge extra. Make sure you can see AT LEAST 25 "before and after" pictures of other women this surgeon has operated on (50+ is better!). Little experience generally ='s poor results...
