Due to the tears that occur during birth and the subsequent inadequate tissue healing, patients consult a doctor with complaints of vaginal enlargement. Many patients are unaware of the existence of vaginal tightening methods, while they experience serious sexual problems with their partners. This situation damages the self-confidence of patients, and sexual intercourse becomes unbearable as vaginal secretion decreases with stress. Some patients experience self-confidence problems due to the sounds coming from the vagina during intercourse, while their underwear constantly develops moisture and odor. Patients also experience discomfort when they feel like their bladder is about to fall. In later stages, the bladder or rectum prolapses out of the vagina, causing urinary incontinence, constipation and friction-related irritations. Women are attaching increasing importance to the shape and appearance of the genital area. Middle-aged women do not accept the functional losses caused by birth injuries and are investigating treatment alternatives.

Genital aesthetic surgery, a rapidly growing branch of the field of plastic surgery, offers many methods to improve women’s quality of life and sexual lives. Vaginal rejuvenation or Vaginal Rejuvenation is the general name for procedures that help reverse the effects of aging and birth on the vagina.

These procedures can be divided into four main categories:

1- Vaginal Rugae Restoration

Transverse skin folds on the walls of the vagina are called “Rugae”. These folds help provide lubrication during sexual intercourse and expansion of the vagina during birth. Rugalar may disappear over time due to age and childbirth. The FraxiVa® laser method helps rebuild these folds. With this method, micron laser pulses are applied to the tissue of the vagina and the repair process is initiated by the adjacent tissues. In this way, the vaginal tissue becomes younger, healthier and tighter, increasing sexual pleasure. Ruga restoration with FraxiVa® is performed in a short procedure of 15-20 minutes and the patient can immediately return to her normal life. It is recommended to refrain from sexual intercourse for the first week after the procedure.

2- Vaginal Tightening using Radiofrequency

If the enlargement of the vagina is minimal, narrowing procedure can be performed with radiofrequency, which is a non-surgical method. Radiofrequency tightens the tissue by heating it, and with this method, which does not require anesthesia, a gradual narrowing of the vagina is aimed as a result of weekly sessions. However, the success rate with the radiofrequency method is limited compared to the surgical method.

3- Vaginal Tightening with CO2 Laser ( FraxiVa® )

One of the preferred methods for mild vaginal enlargements is the CO2 Laser method. FraxiVa® is used to narrow the vagina using fractional carbon dioxide laser technology. It creates controlled, 0.1 micron deep point damage inside the vagina, enabling cell renewal and collagen production, leading to the formation of a tighter and healthier tissue. This procedure, performed with local anesthesia, takes 15-20 minutes and the patient is advised not to have sexual intercourse for a week afterwards. During the healing process, there may be a complaint of vaginal discharge. The vaginal narrowing effect achieved with this method is more limited compared to surgical methods.

4- Surgical Vagina Tightening Surgery

In cases of severe vaginal enlargement, it is possible to narrow the vagina by surgical methods. After this procedure, which is carried out under general anesthesia or spinal anesthesia, the patient must stay in the hospital for one night. After the procedure, the patient rests for 2-3 days and can then return to work life. During the healing process of the stitches, it is recommended not to have sexual intercourse for 40 days.


Vaginal tightening with radiofrequency is a method that does not require anesthesia and is carried out in sessions, but its effect appears slowly. The laser method is a method that is applied in 2 sessions and acts faster than radiofrequency. The potential for vaginal tightening of both methods is less than surgery. However, we prefer it as the first choice in selected patients because it does not require hospitalization, its risks are much less than surgery, and it can be easily applied in daily life. In cases of moderate and severe vaginal laxity, we perform vaginal tightening surgery to obtain more definitive and permanent results.

In the past, in case of vaginal looseness, we could only perform vaginal tightening surgery. We considered surgery unnecessary in cases of mild and moderate vaginal width and could not perform any intervention. For mild and moderate patient groups, vaginal tightening performed with Radofrequency and Laser offers an effective solution to these demands of women.
