Protecting & Healing the Skin

Date posted: April 30, 2009

Whether you’re getting a labiaplasty, vaginoplasty or some other cosmetic or reconstructive procedure, most surgeons agree that the healthier your skin, the better recovery you’ll have from the plastic-surgery procedure. Therefore, it’s a good idea to take care of your skin in the weeks just before your procedure. (more…)

How NOT to Pay for Your Plastic Surgery

Date posted: April 28, 2009

Here’s a funny story about paying for plastic surgery. This is not how YOU want to pay for your labiaplasty, vaginoplasty, or any other form of plastic surgery. You cannot borrow or steal the funds from God.
A man of the cloth decided he needed cosmetic surgery (Admittedly, not vaginoplasty). Here is what happened. (more…)

Recession-Time Plastic Surgeries Bouncing Back

Date posted:

Without question, the terrible economy has taken a bite out of the plastic-surgery profession. A study by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons showed that in 2008, cosmetic surgeries in the United States were down 9 percent from 2007-at $11.8 billion, to be exact. (more…)

Loans for Your Labiaplasty or Vaginoplasty

Date posted: April 24, 2009

With each passing month, it seems that labiaplasty and vaginoplasty get more and more popular. Unfortunately, because these are considered elective surgeries, it’s difficult to get an insurance company to cover them. That means women opting for one of the procedures often must look elsewhere for the money to have the procedure done. So about this idea: a cosmetic-surgery loan. Believe it or not, this is a possibility. (more…)

Vaginoplasty: NOT Genital Mutilation

Date posted:

It’s venting time: One of the things that perturbs me is the repeated attempt by critics of vaginoplasty to lump it in with genital mutilation that goes on in a lot of a third-world countries. It’s nothing new that there are critics to this reconstructive procedure. After all, many people are squeamish about talking about female genitalia-much less, discussing the idea of modifying them for the woman’s comfort. So when they get the opportunity to try to tie it in with something primitive like genital mutilation, why not? (more…)

Is It Plastic, Is It Cosmetic, or Is It Reconstructive?

Date posted: April 21, 2009

For many people, plastic surgery, cosmetic surgery and reconstructive surgery are all the same creature. But believe it or not, there’s a difference. Each is related, but there is a slight difference that you should know with each of them. Let’s take a look at each of them. (more…)

Media Does Not Prevent People From Having Plastic Surgery

Date posted: April 19, 2009

Whether it’s labiaplasty or breast reduction or a face lift, sometimes it seems like the media are working overtime to try to scare people away from plastic surgery. Horror stories are exploited everywhere: on daytime talk shows, in tabloids, and on late-night news programs. In fact, if you do a Yahoo search on “botched plastic surgery,” you’ll gets lists of the worst plastic surgery operations and links to news stories where people talk about some quack that caused them irreparable harm.

Given all of the horror stories, you’d think that people would be terrified of plastic surgeon. However, most people are proving too intelligent to buy into the sensationalism. People all over the country, and in fact, throughout the world, are still flocking to plastic surgeons, according to recent surveys and studies, understanding that there are quacks and bad doctors in any field.

The truth is that risks associated with cosmetic and reconstructive surgery are low compared to most other surgical procedures. And they’re even lower if you make sure to find a board certified, reputable doctor to perform the procedure. When you find a qualified surgeon, make sure you consult with her first to find out what exactly is involved.

This is not to say that there aren’t risks involved. There are. Some could include scarring, temporary swelling, bruising, weakness, numbness and tingling at the area of the operation. Sometimes a touch up procedure may be necessary if the healing is irregular. However, major negative side effects are quite uncommon. And of course, how successful any surgery is, depends a lot on your age, health, weight, body make-up, and genetic issues. Something to keep in mind: One survey found that the risk of serious complications in any plastic-surgery procedure is only about a half of one percent.

Some other negative effects sometimes experienced are not so much physical as emotional. A handful of people regret having changed their bodies, and they want to go see the surgeon again to revert back to their original appearance. At the other extreme are those who actually become addicted to plastic surgery, going back for one procedure after another. However, a qualified plastic surgeon usually will be able to assess whether the patient is emotionally able to undergo the operation. When counseled properly in this way, very few people have any emotional regrets or physical issues.

Bottom line: Any surgery including labiaplasties, vaginaplasties or any other plastic surgery procedures are something to take seriously—but not something to worry about. Excessively.

Stress Incontinence: Is there Insurance Coverage

Date posted:


Insurance companies do not cover labiaplasty procedures. Hymenoplasties and most vaginoplasty procedures are also considered elective. However large vaginal wall defects and some severe stress incontinence cases may be covered. Therefore, you should always discuss with your doctor whether the particular procedure you need is severe enough, and medically necessary enough to be covered.

Stress incontinence can be treated by an outpatient procedure where a small tape is inserted throught the vagina to uplift the urethre and give support. Sometimes a bigger operation is needed that requires hospital stay. Those procedures treat the problems by repairing the muscles between the woman’s bladder and vagina, thus increasing strength of her vaginal walls. Only your doctor can advise you.

If your doctor says that insurance should cover your procedure don’t give up if they first deny your claim; file an appeal. This time, include documentation from the doctor herself describing why this is a medical rather than cosmetic procedure. Whatever the consequences are, try to have the procedure. It will save years of embarrassment and feeling self conscious. It saves years of worrying about getting on the bus as the toilet may be so far away. It is a difficult way to live normally and enjoy daily activities.

Letter for Financial Assistance for Plastic Surgery

Date posted: April 17, 2009

I won’t lie to you. It can be quite difficult getting an insurance company to pay for either a labiaplasty or vaginoplasty operation. Plastic surgery in general tends to be considered elective surgery, and so the insurance companies aren’t as quick to pay for these. And even less so for these two particular operations. However, a few people have managed to get insurance to cover it by writing a convincing letter to the insurance company. Here’s what you need to know. (more…)
