Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that reduces excess skin from the labia. A woman may undergo this procedure for a variety of reasons, most commonly to address discomfort or unhappiness due to genetics, aging, or following childbirth. Plastic surgeon Dr. Paul McCluskey provides labiaplasty to patients in Atlanta, Marietta, Georgia, and surrounding locations.
Insurance companies typically do not cover procedures that are done for cosmetic purposes. In some cases, issues with the labia affect everyday life, such as with sitting, walking, or pain with clothing. Enlarged or misshapen labia can cause discomfort, chafing and irritation, and birth defects or injury may also require reconstructive surgery to help improve the function of the labia. Still, insurance may not consider discomfort from the labia as something of a major health issue for labiaplasty to be considered medically necessary. Whether insurance will cover labiaplasty will largely depend on your case, and you should seek a consultation with a surgeon to determine the extent of your medical need for the procedure.
Talk to Your Surgeon’s Office
If you are seeking insurance coverage for your labiaplasty, it is important that you discuss this with your surgeon’s office prior to making your appointments. Some practices do not accept insurance. Most practices offer affordable financing options if necessary. After your surgeon has completed your examination and full consultation, you’ll receive a breakdown of your procedure cost and available payment options. If your surgeon thinks you are a good candidate for insurance coverage, you will need to contact your insurance provider to discuss your coverage.
