Labiaplasty has been gaining recognition and increasing in popularity lately. Here are the most commonly Frequently Asked Questions about Labiaplasty.
Is Labiaplasty a Cosmetic or Medical Procedure?
Both. It can be done for cosmetic reasons or to treat physical discomfort due to an enlarged labia.
Does Insurance Cover It?
Most insurance companies will cover diseases of the labia and vulva. They usually do not cover procedures which address issues that pertain to appearance or discomfort, such as labiaplasty.
What Does it Cost?
Doctors report that the procedure costs between $3,000 and $5,000, but prices can vary by region and practitioner. Contact Dr. Susan Rusnack at New Beginnings to inquire about pricing for labiaplasty in Beverly Hills.
What is the Recovery Time?
Patients may be able to drive themselves home after the procedure, but full recovery takes several weeks. You can return to work after four to five days; return to exercise after three to four weeks; and you must avoid sexual activity for four to six weeks.
Are There any Non-Surgical Alternatives?
ThermiVa is a non-surgical treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to shrink the labia. According to reports it is not as effective as labiaplasty, however.
What other Procedures can go along with Labiaplasty?
Vaginoplasty is a surgical procedure to tighten the vaginal canal. When done in combination with Labiaplasty, the procedure becomes Vaginal Rejuvenation.
What Risks are Involved?
In general, the medical profession regards this procedure as very safe. As with any surgery, there is always the possibility of complication. Specific risks you take with this procedure are of asymmetry, pigmentation, and sensory changes. However, these are very rare.
Should I Wait until I’m Done Having Kids?
Labiaplasty has no effect on childbirth, but you may want to wait unless you want to risk needing to have a second procedure done.
When is a Better Time to Have the Procedure: When You’re Younger (and there is a need) or When You’re Older?
In almost every case, it is better to have the surgery when it is necessary than to wait until you are “old enough” to have labiaplasty in Beverly Hills. There is no reason to live with physical or emotional discomfort.
Will My Partner See or Feel any Changes after Surgery?
It depends on the degree of enlargement you had to begin with. If the labial tissue interferes with sexual activity, you and your partner will notice that there is no more interference.
Also, your labia will look smaller with better alignment. Your partner will be able to tell you have made these changes.
What is the Cause of Large Labia?
Enlarged or asymmetrical labia are the result of being born with them. There is no other cause.
What is Considered “Normal Labia Size”?
“Normal” labia size is whatever you choose depending on your own preference.
