Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that is performed to remove excess skin from the labia. Women often seek labiaplasty to improve the appearance of the labia, or to address discomfort that occurs from aging, genetics, or childbirth. Vinings Surgery Center, led by reliable board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Colgrove, provides labiaplasty to patients in Atlanta, Marietta, Georgia, and surrounding locations.
Labiaplasty performed solely for cosmetic purposes is unlikely to be covered by insurance. In some cases, birth defects or injury to the labia may require reconstructive surgery to repair function of the labia. Enlarged or misshapen labia may cause discomfort or pain when sitting, walking or dressing, and chafing and irritation may occur. Still, insurance may not consider these issues as something medically necessary for them to cover. Insurance coverage for labiaplasty will largely depend on your case, and it’s recommended that you seek a consultation with a surgeon to help determine whether your procedure could be deemed medically necessary.
Talk to Your Surgeon’s Office
Some offices do not accept insurance as payment, even if your insurance is willing to cover your procedure. It is important to discuss your intent of using health insurance towards your procedure with your surgeon’s office to help ensure the costs of your procedure are covered. After your examination and consultation, you’ll receive a cost breakdown for your procedure and all payment options available to you. If your surgeon thinks you’re a good candidate for labiaplasty and is willing to accept your insurance, you’ll need to discuss coverage with your insurance company.
