You are not the first to ask this question, unfortunately not all woman or men are created equally. You have an unfortunate situation but it does not mean it can not be addressed. You should not be turned away from an evaluation or examination and that is the first step in addressing your situation. I have had patient your age undergo rejuvenation and have even had women younger than you with their uterus and vaginas falling out which needed complete reconstruction. One young woman in particular from South Carolina never had a baby and needed complete reconstruction and support of her uterus and then needed tightening.
I tell you this so you know you are not alone. Please go to an experience Vaginal reconstructive surgeon. Do your homework and find a surgeon with experience, expertise and proven results.

Vaginal Rejuvanation For Young Women Prior to Childbearing
Vaginoplasty can also be carried down to the area below the vulva and above the anus, the perineum.This area may be irregular from childbirth or previous trauma. It can be corrected with excision and closure to further enhance the region.
If necessary, this may be combined with a #Labiaplasty which is a surgical procedure that will reduce and/or reshape the #labia. Labia minora are the inner lips of the vagina that cover the female clitoris and vaginal opening. Women with excessively large labia may experience pain during sexual relations, feel discomfort during normal activities or while wearing tight clothing. Or, the labia may be asymmetric or may #hang below the labia majora (the outer lips of the vagina) which some women find this unattractive. At times the outer labia or labia majora may also be excessively large, uneven, or may be too small. The size may be increased with fat injections.
The best procedure approach will be discussed in greater detail during your in-person one-on-one consultation. However, if one is planning on growing their family, it may be best to postpone any of the procedures until after. Certainly there isn't any harm in undergoing vaginal rejuvenation prior to childbirth. Nevertheless, the birthing process(es) may negate some of the results of the rejuvenation, unless a C-section is involved, of course. Therefore, postponing the procedure(s) until after bearing children may be a better decision for some women.
Too young for a vaginoplasty?
In your case I would lean towards a non surgical approach first.
we have helped women in your situation by first discussing and exploring non surgical options with very little to no pain or downtime.
We have used the Femilift laser for vaginal tightening very successfully and have gotten fabulous results with it.
Best of luck

Vaginal tightening for women who have not had children
My recommendation, as both a cosmetic gynecologist who has performed >600 labiaplasties, > 100 sexually mediated vaginoplasties/pelvic floor reconstructions, and > 25 FemiLifts, is to GET AN IN-PERSON EVALUATION from an experienced cosmetic gynecologist who also is savviy in and/or specializes in sexual medicine. You don't want to go out and fine the nearest gynecologist who will "tighten" anyone who asks. Your situation is unique, and should be carefully evaluated by someone who an listen to your wishes carefully and construct therapy for you personally.

Your vaginoplasty question requires an examination
No treatment is permanent
You are being unrealistic if you're looking for a treatment that will last forever. I wouldn't turn you away for your age, but I would for being unrealistic and/or if PFD is present.
