The cost of vaginoplasty can vary depending on a number of factors, including the extent of the procedure being performed, the number of simultaneous procedures desired (e.g. labiaplasty), and the type of anaesthesia used. Before going with the cheapest option, think about what you’re paying for: included in the cost of vaginoplasty are the use of medical facilities, specialist gynaecological surgeons and surgical assistants, the presence of an anesthesiologist, the use of specialized tools and equipments, and all consultations and follow-up visits.
A typical vaginoplasty at Clinic 360 starts at $4,700 plus HST. We accept cash, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and debit card. Financing is also available.
What Can Affect the Cost of Vaginoplasty?
Because every woman is different, an individual consultation is the best way to accurately price vaginoplasty. Sometimes the vaginal walls need more extensive repair if, for example, they have been damaged by a complicated childbirth. Some women simply desire a greater level of tightening. The level of work to be performed is customizable based on a woman’s individual needs and desires, and the price of the procedure can therefore fluctuate.
Many women opt for combination procedures, wherein separate procedures are performed simultaneously. The most common combination is labiaplasty/vaginoplasty, which involves the tightening of the vaginal muscles and reduction of the vaginal opening, as well as the trimming and correction of the labia minora (the inner vaginal “lips”), and possibly the reduction or amplification of the labia majora (the outer “lips”). The vagina, labia majora, and labia minora are each considered separate areas, and undertaking multiple procedures will affect the cost of surgery. The clinic can normally offer a price adjustment in the case of multiple procedures. Other procedures that can be combined with vaginoplasty include clitoral hood reduction, hymenoplasty (reconstruction of the hymen), mons pubis reduction (liposuction of the area between the belly and vagina), and Grafenburg-Spot amplification (injection of a filler to enlarge the G-Spot).
For certain types of anaesthesia, such as nerve block, epidural, spinal, IV sedation, and general sedation, a board-certified anesthesiologist must be present. As a result, such types of anaesthesia are generally more expensive than locally injected or topically applied anaesthetics. In many cases, local anaesthetics are sufficient to ensure a pain-free procedure, and can keep anaesthesia-related costs low. Combination procedures or extensive repairs may require the use of general anaesthetic. Your surgeon will be able to provide you with options at your consultation and will recommend the most appropriate type of anaesthesia for your vaginoplasty.
Some patients come to the clinic requesting corrections to procedures undergone at other clinics. The fee for such a correction depends on the nature and extent of the damage and the level of repair work required. While the clinic is unable to perform these types of corrective procedures free of charge, every effort is made to keep costs low in such cases.
Some women travel abroad in search of cheaper alternatives to various cosmetic surgery procedures, including vaginoplasties. Be aware that many countries and clinics don’t have the same rigorous standards when it comes to the cleanliness and safety of their facilities, and may be using outdated or contaminated equipment. At Clinic 360, the cost of vaginoplasty includes the use of premier medical facilities that are designed with cleanliness, comfort, and functionality in mind. Because infection poses a risk in any surgery, operating rooms are extremely infection-sensitive in accordance with strict guidelines in order to ensure a sterile and pathogen-free environment.
In addition to an optimal workspace, operating rooms are furnished with the latest in specialized tools and equipment to ensure that patients receive state-of-the-art treatment, such as Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation, which uses specialized laser technology to greatly reduce the risks of bleeding and scarring.
Clinic 360 provides extensive follow-up care to ensure a smooth and full recovery, all of which is included in the initial vaginoplasty fee.
What Are You Paying For?
At Clinic 360, quality treatment is a number one priority. Women who undertake vaginal tightening procedures at the clinic can rest assured that all vaginal tightening procedures are performed by qualified gynaecological specialists with extensive experience and superb track records. While any surgeon can perform vaginoplasty, few surgeons have the expertise necessary to perform such a delicate procedure safely and correctly. Because vaginal tightening surgery involves highly sensitive parts of the female anatomy, surgeries performed by such “inexperienced” surgeons can result in serious damage, including nerve damage and unsightly scars. While these "botched"procedures can sometimes be corrected, undergoing corrective surgery is far from ideal, and can put extra stress on already sensitive areas and pose unnecessary risk. Some procedures performed by inexperienced surgeons can lead to permanent damage. It is obviously preferable for your vaginoplasty to be performed correctly the first time. Therefore, it is crucial to choose a clinic carefully, and to do appropriate background research. Any reputable clinic will have no problem providing answers to basic questions regarding the expertise of their surgeons, as well as before and after photos.
