Labiaplasty Surgery CostsPosted on September 15, 2015
Labiaplasty is a proven, standout, and concrete aesthetics surgery procedure designed to improve the shape and appearance of the labial lips. The procedure must be performed by a trained expert in order to achieve the desired appearance without compromising the natural sensitivity of the labial tissue.
Factors Impacting the Cost
The dollar amount of labiaplasty cosmetic surgery can vary from one practice to another and even from one patient to another at the same practice. The following factors will influence the monetary figure in most cases.
Location of the practice is one of the major factors in determining the cost of a surgical procedure. The average prices are typically higher in major urban centers and cities along the East and West Coasts, as compared to smaller cities and towns in the country. For instance, the cost of labiaplasty in Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and nearby areas may not be the same as the dollar amount in, say, Arizona.
The fee charged by the plastic surgeon can vary according to their qualifications, experience and reputation in the field of labiaplasty. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) recommends that patients should choose a board certified plastic surgeon to receive this procedure. Factors such as the surgeon’s fee should be secondary while choosing the right surgeon for this procedure.
Anesthesia and Operating Room Costs
If labiaplasty is performed with the patient under general anesthesia, the overall sticker price can be impacted according to the fee charged by the anesthesiologist. Whether the procedure is performed at an accredited ambulatory center, a hospital or an in-house surgical suite of the plastic surgeon will also make a difference to the overall impact on your checking account.
Extent of Surgery
The overall length and complexity of the labiaplasty cosmetic surgery procedure will make a difference to its costs. Some patients may need only a margial tissue reduction from the labial lips, while others may need a more detailed reshaping of the labia minora and majora, along with correction of asymmetry and rejuvenation of the clitoral hood. If the labiaplasty procedure is combined with liposuction, fat transfer or dermal filler injections, the overall dollar figure of the surgery will increase.
Average Known Cost
Depending on various factors as discussed above, the average stipulated cost of labiaplasty can vary substantially between two surgeons and even two patients at the same practice. The prevailing cost of the surgeon in the US may range from $4,000 to $8,000, including all major cost components.
Labiaplasty is usually considered as an elective procedure, and the cost may not be covered by the health insurer. However, if the patient is able to show medical necessity due to pain, discomfort, infections, or movement restriction, full or partial insurance coverage may be available. Patients should explore various financing options to pay for the surgery in convenient & sensible monthly installments.
