They have labial hypertrophy however is becoming irritating and causing pain/discomfort when wearing certain clothes etc.
Labiaplasty is usually seen as a cosmetic plastic procedure so I'd assume the NHS don't provide it however in her case its due to discomfort which is affecting her quality of life so in this case would the NHS fund this type of surgery?
If she went to the GP about this would they refer her to gynaecology or would they just say it would require a private cosmetic procedure?
Would love to hear from anyone who has had experience w this at all.
Would getting private health insurance cover this cost if the labiaplasty is for medical reasons and not purely cosmetic reasons as currently cosmetic plastic surgery is not covered by private insurance?
As it’s causing them pain and discomfort, the NHS are likely to consider funding such a treatment, depending on the severity and which health authority you live in. Definitely advise them to talk to their GP, they will be able to help
I've read other peoples threads in the past saying they had similar experiences and the NHS didn't fund it so Im not if its worth the fuss and embarrassment she has of going to the GP.
