Costs of Surgery


With the exception of incontinence surgery, these surgeries are usually considered cosmetic by the insurance companies and are not covered. There are exceptions to this. Insurance may cover someone who has a documented medical condition that requires a functional surgery. This can only be determined after a surgical evaluation.

Individual surgical requirements vary by patient. Your surgery may be dramatically different from someone else who had the same procedure. Only a consultation and full evaluation by a physician who is skilled in these procedures can tell you what type of surgery would be best for you.

Vaginal Sling Insertion (covered by most insurance plans)
$2,500

Labiaplasty
$2,500 - $5,000

Aesthetic Vaginaplasty
$2,500 - $7,500

Combined Labiaplasty/Vaginaplasty
$4,000 - $10,000

Hymen Restoration
$1,500


Your surgical fee will be quoted after consultation with your doctor.

Depending on your circumstances, any insurance reimbursement can be refunded to you directly, or applied to your estimate after confirmation of the approved amount.

All fees are payable prior to surgery.

If necessary, hospital and anesthesia fees will be handled through your insurance company.
