More Reasons to Choose Labiaplasty 

Women of all walks of life have turned to labiaplasty, or labial reduction, for both functional and aesthetic reasons. This procedure rejuvenates a woman’s vaginal area via the surgical removal of excess skin from the labia minora.

At the plastic surgery offices of Dr. Kishinevsky, patients are treated with the gentlest, most effective techniques to increase their confidence in their appearance with a minimum of scarring, resulting in a natural appearance. We are equipped to perform outpatient labiaplasty in just about two hours. After the removal, the labia are sutured using dissolving stitches and the area is dressed. This results in discreet, minimal scarring. 

Although the procedure itself goes by quickly in the adept hands of Dr. Kishinevsky, the results can be life-changing.

Exceeding Patient Expectations

My experience with Dr. Anya Kishinevsky was excellent and my surgery went far beyond my expectations. I could not be more pleased with the outcome. She was consistently warm, poised, extremely competent and unflappable. Due to a personal condition my case, I believe, was much more challenging than some, and I trusted her completely. I interviewed with other plastic surgeons and found her professionalism and calm, kind demeanor hands down to be far above the rest. I knew right away that she was the only plastic surgeon for me. She answered every question and explained to me what to expect. She was prompt for every appointment and treated me like I was her only patient. Her staff was attentive and friendly, which is so important when initiating contact for elective surgery and then for coordinating the actual event.

Wondering if this procedure is common? 

Labiaplasty Is an Increasingly Popular Procedure

Infostat about labiaplasty

*According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. 

What issues can labiaplasty address? 

Large labia minora can make activities like sexual intercourse, inserting a tampon, or riding a bike very uncomfortable for women. By removing problematic excess tissue, surgery can eliminate chafing and other functional issues. 

Enlarged labial tissue can also peek out through underwear or bathing suits, making you feel self-conscious. Surgery can help your labia minora stay tucked inside of the surrounding tissue, giving you a more symmetrical, smooth shape. 

The Procedure Is Not Just for Aging Women 

Although patients typically associate stretched or sagging vaginal tissue with aging or motherhood, this is not always the case. Some patients are born with asymmetrical labial tissue that may cause discomfort and prevent them from participating in sports and other activities early in their lives.

Are you a good candidate for vaginal rejuvenation? 

General Recommendations for Women Considering Labiaplasty

Many factors affect the appearance and function of a woman’s labia as she ages. Women who elect to undergo labiaplasty will have experienced certain physical and aesthetic concerns, including:

  • Elongated labial tissue
  • Asymmetric labial folds
  • Discomfort or soreness after labial tissue is maladjusted for a period of time
  • Pain or soreness during tampon use, intercourse, or exercise
  • More care required when washing the vaginal area because of the delicate or stretched labial tissue

The transformation of labial tissue over time is common, especially among women who have given birth, experienced trauma to the area, had growth spurts, or have for one reason or another experienced stretching in the delicate tissue of the labia. At a certain point, this tissue loses elasticity and will remain in a drooping or uneven state.

Women experiencing gynecological disease and women who are unwilling to quit tobacco use at least during the weeks of healing time following surgery should not undergo labiaplasty. Women planning on having more vaginal childbirths in the near future may want to wait until after they have finished having children before undergoing labiaplasty.

Worried about the procedure being uncomfortable? 

We Treat Patients with Care, Compassion, and Precision

Under the care of Dr. Kishinevsky and the experienced medical teams in our Norwalk and Fairfield offices serving Bridgeport and surrounding communities, labiaplasty can be performed with ease and comfort.

Our Customized Approach

Dr. Kishinevsky with a patient

Every procedure is customized to your unique anatomy and concerns, and the amount of excess labial tissue removed during labiaplasty will be predetermined in accordance with safety standards and the desired final appearance. Some patients elect to have excess tissue around the clitoral hood thinned out for a more smooth and symmetric appearance. Others prefer to reduce only the tissue that protrudes beyond the labia majora.

We will discuss all your options together at our Norwalk or Fairfield, CT, office, where we treat patients from Bridgeport and surrounding communities. Together with Dr. Kishinevsky, you will look at before and after photos so that you can choose the procedure that best suits your needs.

Understanding the Factors Affecting Labiaplasty Cost

The cost of labiaplasty will vary depending upon a variety of factors, including the plastic surgeon you select, the extent of treatment, and the type of anesthesia administered. Labiaplasty or vaginal rejuvenation is usually an elective procedure as its function is generally cosmetic. Patients with enlarged or protruding vaginal lips who feel self-conscious about their appearance, or those who experience discomfort during sexual intercourse, may benefit from undergoing surgery.

If you are considering labiaplasty, board-certified plastic surgeon Anya Kishinevsky can review all factors that affect labiaplasty cost during your initial consultation at our Norwalk or Fairfield, CT, plastic surgery office and provide an estimate for treatment.

Discreet, Compassionate Plastic Surgery

Labiaplasty is an outpatient plastic surgery procedure that aims to reduce the size, as well as reshape, the labia minora, labia majora, and the clitoral hood. Though surgery can take up to an hour depending on the patient's requirements, the procedure itself is complex. It therefore requires the skill and experience of a board-certified plastic surgeon, who can perform this surgery successfully with minimal risk. 

Choosing the right plastic surgeon is integral to the outcome of your procedure, and can also affect the cost of treatment.

Labiaplasty requires a sensitive and discreet approach as well as the talent and aesthetic sense of an accomplished doctor. At Dr. Kishinevsky's practice, in Norwalk, CT, we strive to provide the right treatment at a fair price, while prioritizing the overall patient experience.

Determining the Cost of Labiaplasty

   

This procedure is generally not covered by health insurance unless the enlarged or protruding labia causes significant health problems. There are several factors that affect the cost of your treatment, including:

   
image of factors affecting cost of labiaplasty
The cost of treatment is determined by the surgeon you choose, as well as any additional procedures incorporated into treatment.

Geographical Location of the Plastic Surgery Office
The cost of a plastic surgery procedure is greatly influenced by the location of the practice. If the office is located in an urban area, the cost of labiaplasty is often higher than if it were to be performed in a rural locality. 
The Plastic Surgeon You Choose
The experience of your surgeon will have a direct impact on the final cost of your treatment, as well as the results. A board-certified surgeon such as Dr. Kishinevsky in Norwalk, CT, provides superior care, and has won the trust of her patients because of her expertise and caring demeanor. When you entrust your cosmetic needs to our practice, you can enjoy the peace of mind that your doctor is well-trained and can help you achieve your aesthetic goals. 
The Extent of Work Required in the Labiaplasty
The extent of work required during your labiaplasty also determines the net cost. The final expense will vary depending upon whether Dr. Kishinevsky needs to address just the labia majora or the labia minora, or also has to reduce the clitoral hood.
Anesthesia Options
The cost also differs according to your choice of sedation. If you undergo surgery with local anesthesia, you can expect the cost to be less than if the procedure is performed under general anesthesia.
Combining Cosmetic Procedures
A labiaplasty can be combined with other plastic surgery procedures such as a tummy tuck or liposuction at our Norwalk and Fairfield, CT, offices. This will increase the total cost of your treatment.

If you have additional questions regarding treatment, including candidacy and the timeline, our team would be happy to assist you further during your personal consultation.
