I’m 21 years old and I have a horrible looking vagina. The skin looks like hamburger meat and the area around the clitoris is big as well. Does insurance blue care network and medicade cover surgery if it is causing pain? I can’t even wear leggings or yoga pants or bathing suits because of my problem. Please help!
Thank you for getting in touch, and I’m sorry to hear that you are experiencing embarrassment and discomfort from your vulva (the outer part of your genital area which includes your labia and clitoris).
Most health insurance schemes don’t cover the cost of labiaplasty surgery as they consider it to be an elective cosmetic surgery rather than a medically necessary procedure. As a result, most labiaplasty patients have to foot the bill for their own surgery (which can be upwards of $4000).
Based on your picture, while you do have some excess skin in your labia minora, there is nothing unattractive about your vulva, and your vulva is unique and beautiful in its own way.
I hope that you will reconsider your decision to undergo surgery. It may help to make some lifestyle changes to reduce or eliminate the physical discomfort that you are experiencing. My reply to this post contains some tips which may help to reduce your level of physical discomfort.
I hope this helps! Please let me know what you ultimately decide with regard to surgery.
