Labiaplasty is a procedure performed to reduce or reshape the outer or inner skin of the vulva, known as the labia. The effects of childbirth, hormonal changes, or weight fluctuation often change the appearance of a woman’s most intimate area. If needed, these changes can be surgically addressed to restore confidence, symmetry, and comfort.
Is a Labiaplasty
right for you ?
A labiaplasty is an excellent choice for many women seeking to reduce the size or change the shape of their labia or clitoris. There are two major reasons that patients typically undergo a labiaplasty:
During the initial consultation, your surgeon will provide an exam and discuss your goals to understand if this procedure is correct for you.
Labiaplasty & Insurance Coverage
Insurance companies often cover labiaplasties performed for functional issues. Obtaining coverage may require detailed documentation of symptoms to deem your repair medically necessary. It is important to note that labiaplasties performed for cosmetic purposes are not eligible for insurance coverage. We encourage all potential labiaplasty patients to contact their health insurance companies to fully understand their guidelines for coverage before their initial consultation.
A patient care concierge will guide you through the entire consultation process, which can be attended in person or virtually. During the consultation, your surgeon will learn about your goals, answer any questions, and perform an examination to create a personalized surgical plan. You will then be matched with a surgical coordinator who will walk you through each step of the preoperative process.
The most common side effects of labiaplasty include swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the treated area. Icing the area is recommended for the first two to three days following surgery.
Your surgeon will provide specific instructions for optimal post-operative care, including an advanced scar management protocol after the initial healing period. Your surgical team is always available and will closely monitor your recovery in the weeks and months following surgery.
