Does Insurance Cover Labiaplasty in Sydney

Can I get insurance to cover labiaplasty/vaginoplasty?

Are you wondering about whether or not you can get your insurance to pay for labiaplasty in Sydney?  It is possible but it’s not going to be easy. Vaginoplasty and labiaplasty are both cosmetic surgical procedures aimed at changing the appearance of the female genitalia. Over sized labia can be made to appear smaller and more desirable.

Considering that vaginal tightening surgery is a cosmetic surgical operation, it’s easy to see why most insurance companies would not even consider covering its cost. Don’t give up so easily though – let’s take a look at some of the things that you can do to improve your chances of getting an insurance cover for vaginal cosmetic surgery.

What can you do to seek an insurance cover for labiaplasty in Sydney?

First things first – review your insurance and determine the things that your policy doesn’t cover. Labiaplasty can be undertaken for health reasons and such cases will greatly improve your chances of getting coverage. Labiaplasty can be undertaken to treat extreme vaginal discomfort or improve one’s chances of having children. You can also seek coverage if you need the operation to treat vulval diseases like cancer and vulval dermatitis.

Now that you know whether or not your claim for insurance coverage has any merit, you can then ask your surgeon to write a note informing your insurance provider of your need for the operation. The Labia can loosen for a number of reasons – age, repeated sexual activity, childbirth, etc. Such a condition may not only appear unpleasant and unhygienic but can also render sexual activities uncomfortable.

Chances are your insurance company will reject your claim for a coverage but it’s certainly worth trying especially when your reasons have merit for doing so. You can resubmit your claim for further consideration and if all else fails you can opt for financing options which should at least help make the cost of the operation a lot more manageable.

Would you like to learn more? Why not arrange a consultation to better discuss your needs with a reputable and highly experienced cosmetic surgeon. Call Dr Tavakoli today on 1300 368 107 and talk with a foremost expert on Labiaplasty in Sydney.
