Labia Vaginal rejuvenation is a reconstructive procedure in which cosmetic and reconstructive changes to the vagina and parts of the vulva are made. It includes shaping of the labia, reconstructing a torn hymen and tightening of the vaginal muscles.
Today women are increasingly turning to vaginal rejuvenation to look and feel better. It is a popular choice of thousands of woman wanting to correct vaginal relaxation and increase their sexual pleasure. More than 1000 such procedures were done in 2006 according to the American society of plastic surgeons and the numbers are bound to increase.
Vaginal rejuvenation procedures cost thousands of dollars. Though some financing options are available, purely cosmetic surgeries are not covered by health insurance. So it’s a lucky woman who goes in to get a medical problem like pelvic prolapse or stress incontinence treated and comes out with a tighter vagina and a greater sex life as a free gift.
But those who go in for purely cosmetic purposes like reconstruction of labia or hymen may have to pay through their nose. The cost of vaginal rejuvenation depends on the doctor, where the practice is located, what procedures were done and many other factors besides. The physician’s costs for a vaginal rejuvenation procedure itself may vary from $3000 to $ 8000. The fees may include costs of operating room, medication, nursing, post operative check ups etc. There may also be many miscellaneous expenses which are not included. You may have to pay extra to stay overnight at the hospital. A minor cosmetic procedure obviously will cost less while packages like a vaginal rejuvenation together with labiaplasty will cost more. A procedure done in the city will cost more than when it is done in a suburb or rural area. The total costs can be anywhere up to $20,000.
To those who wish to have a body beautiful enough to grace a Playboy centerfold, or those who need hymen reconstruction done for cultural reasons, the sky is the limit when it comes to spending on such cosmetic surgeries.
It will do good to remember that any surgery carries its risks. Though vaginal rejuvenation is considered to be a low risk procedure, infection, bleeding, loss of sensation in the vaginal area or a too tight a vagina leading to pain during intercourse are also some of the costs that an unlucky one may have to bear and then end up paying more for further surgery.
