Anesthesia and Operating Room Costs
The fee charged by the anesthesiologist may also vary depending on their experience. Procedures such as labiaplasty, vaginal rejuvenation, and labiaplasty repair may be performed under general anesthesia or IV sedation as per the circumstances of a specific case.

Labia minora or majora reduction and clitoral unhooding may or may not be required for a particular patient, and the cost may differ accordingly. The average cost of surgery may vary from $6,000 to $12,000 depending on the actual procedure and various other factors.
Insurance and Financing
Labiaplasty or vaginal rejuvenation is usually performed as an aesthetic surgery. Like all elective surgical procedures, the cost of such a procedure is not likely to be covered under the patient’s health insurance plan. However, if any medical concerns are involved which can be corrected with the procedure, full or partial cost of the surgery may be covered under the health policy.
Most patients also have the option to get the procedure financed through professional medical care financing firms. The surgeon’s office may be able to offer guidance or assistance with regard to insurance and financing aspects.
