Labiaplasty in Melbourne, AUS

Labiaplasty in Melbourne, AUS

Postby Road2heal » Thu Jan 16, 2014 7:54 am

Hi everyone,
I've been contemplating labiaplasty for about 2 years now, I've just been reading up about it a lot on the web, and like I'm sure a lot of you know the web can be scary. I've gone through stages of being too scared, a little unsure, but I'm set on it now... I've not yet been to my GP for a referral.

I'm almost 19 and am extremely insecure of my body, especially my labia minora. It's not unusual for me to have my labia throbbing, sore or being pinched from whatever pants I'm wearing. It's a constant discomfort and sometimes it can be fairly painful. Additionally, as I said I'm constantly self-loathing it's doing a total on my confidence, what little I have left. I've never gotten close to a guy this being part of the reason why.

I have my own medicare card, but do not have any private health care insurance. I need more information on what do be armed with when I approach my GP, what I should expect, how I can get this covered by medicare. So if anyone has had this operation or is in the same boat as me, please do comment on this thread or message me personally.. I'll be checking this site often.

Thanks...

Hi there
I had Labiaplasty 4 days ago in Queensland. I am older than you and wish I knew about this surgery years ago. Pity I waited this long, as I too have suffered a huge complex about the size of my labia. Always felt like a freak. Anyway I am healing up, still swollen and bruised, but already I think I look better! We are lucky in Australia as it is an affordable procedure even without health insurance. The total cost before claiming anything is just over $3,000. If you tell your GP there are medical reasons for wanting this surgery, like "I feel discomfort, cant ride a bike, and tight trousers hurt me", he will write a referral to a plastic surgeon. Medicare reimburse you about $500. Not much but better than nothing. Oh, and it is cheaper to have it done in the Doctor's rooms under a general anaesthetic, like I did. It took an hour and I even drove myself home, as I was numb! Worst part was the needles for the anaesthetic. But be brave, it is bearable, and I was walking around the next day, the pain subsided in 24hours. Research it all on the net, know what to expect. And research and choose your own surgeon before you go to the GP, because not all of them do it in their rooms with a local. Much more expensive to have it done in hospital, with or without insurance. I think $2,500 is nothing compared to our self confidence and happiness, don't you? Let me know how you go and good luck!

Me again.....sorry, in my reply did I say "it is cheaper to have it done in the Doctor's rooms under a general anaesthetic" ?? I meant...LOCAL anaesthetic (in the surgeon's rooms). Sorry again, I should get my words right!

Hi Mary I'm sorry it took me so long to reply. Thanks for your in put and sharing your experience. Did you pay the money up front or in installments? Maybe before I go to my doctor (I know, I still haven't, suffering silently) I should save up the 3k? How fast was the process for you? From the GP to the surgeon?
