Of all the cosmetic surgeries we perform at Sterling, we find that patients struggle to discuss labia reduction perhaps more than any other procedure. Given the deeply private nature of labia reduction, we understand that many of our patients struggle to share their concerns; some even feel unnecessary shame and embarrassment about discussing this procedure.
On average, there are approximately 10,000 labia reductions performed in the United States annually, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
There are various reasons why patients want to learn more about labiaplasty. Like most other cosmetic procedures, a top motivation is confidence, or lack thereof.
As Queen Latifah wisely observed, “I had to grow to love my body. I did not have a good self-image at first. Finally it occurred to me, I’m either going to love me or hate me. And I chose to love myself… Confidence makes you sexy.”
Our team at Sterling is eager to alleviate the stress and anxiety from these conversations and reclaim the confidence you deserve, which is why we urge anyone considering a labia reduction to schedule a consultation.
As far as the costs, the average expenditure for labia reduction or labiaplasty was approximately $3,000 in 2020; however, various factors like certain post-surgery medications, anesthesia, and even postoperative clothing items can increase the final price.
Typical of any cosmetic procedure, the ultimate cost will vary between patients based on the above factors, as well as other realities like the geographic location of the surgical practice and number of years the plastic surgeon can demonstrate success performing labiaplasty.
