What is vaginal laxity?
Vaginal laxity is a commonly-overlooked women’s health concern, often caused by childbirth, aging, or physical trauma. These can all damage tissues of the vagina, causing changes in its shape, appearance, and function. Some women experience a loosening of the vaginal canal, which affects their sexual pleasure and sometimes can cause urinary incontinence. At New York Center for Aesthetic Rejuvenation, we specialize in a number of vaginal rejuvenation and tightening procedures, which help you restore your confidence and sexual health.
What causes vaginal laxity?
Vaginal laxity can be caused by any of the following:
- Trauma to the vagina
- Vaginal childbirth (especially multiple)
- Certain genetic disorders
- Excessive sexual activity

We are happy to provide more information as well as treatment options to help you feel more confident and get back to optimal sexual health.
How is vaginal laxity treated?
Vaginal laxity is commonly treated at New York Center for Aesthetic Rejuvenation with vaginal tightening procedures. Many women who undergo one or more of the following procedures experience improved sexual gratification and vaginal tightness, in addition to other benefits:
Vaginal Laser Rejuvenation (FemiLift)
Vaginal laser rejuvenation is a minimally invasive laser treatment that is used to improve dryness and urinary incontinence, in addition to tightening the vagina and improving sexual wellness.
Vaginoplasty, sometimes called a “face lift” for the vagina, restores the appearance and feel of the vagina by removing excess tissue in the vagina and tightening the surrounding muscles.
When the perineum muscle, which surrounds the vagina, is damaged or stretched during childbirth, a procedure called a perineoplasty may be able to repair damage and restore tightness of the vagina.
Many doctors recommend using Kegel exercises to strengthen the muscles surrounding the vagina. This has proven to help improve sexual pleasure, vaginal tightness, and urinary incontinence in some women.
Vaginal Reconstruction / Plastic Surgery
Vaginal reconstruction surgery includes a number of “designer vagina” rejuvenation services, which can help restore a youthful look and feel of your vagina.
