Cost of Vaginal tightening or rejuvenation
The costs will vary depending on what needs to be done. Namely perineoplasty, anterior or posterior repair. In some instances pelvic laxity may be considered a covered benefit\ of your insurance plan. First meet with your gynecologist or urogynecologist to discuss your concerns. However, depending on what needs to be done fees can vary from 5-12,000 USD.
Vaginal Rejuvenation costs in Orange County, CA
In Orange County, CA the price for vaginal rejuvenation ranges from $3000-$4000 depending on the complexity of the procedure. This price is for a series of three treatments, spaced 6-8 weeks apart. I would recommend scheduling a consultation to see if this is the right procedure for you.
Vaginal Rejuvenation Cost
First, ask if there is a consultation fee. If so, ask if the fee will be credited toward the surgery if you decide to go ahead.
Second, ask if your medical insurance will cover any related charges such as bloodwork testing, prescriptions, etc. In some cases, where medically indicated pelvic floor reconstruction is found to be necessary, the insurance might even cover the cost of surgery - don't get too excited, these situations are exceptions, but it never hurts to ask.
Third, ask if there is a facility fee. This is the cost of "renting" the operating room for your surgery. If the surgeon conducts the procedure in-house, the facility fee will be lower or absent. Don't forget to ask what the facility fee does and does not include (e.g. nursing, anesthesia, recovery). Ask if the cost is independent of the duration of the surgery or whether it's on the meter like a taxi (by the hour, by the 15 min block, etc).
Fourth, ask if there is a charge for anesthesia. These procedures are conducted via local, IV sedation, or general depending on the circumstances. Local is cheap, but not always an option. General is usually most expensive and not always required. Ask if the cost is independent of the duration of the surgery.
Fifth, ask if there will be a surgical assistant fee. This may be another surgeon, or a professional scrub tech.
The only thing left is the surgeon's fee. Of course, quality doesn't come cheap, but if you've done your homework on steps 1 through 5, you'll make the best use of your resources.
In my practice, I use a global fee that covers everything except the anesthesiologist.
Don't forget to ask if there is a charge for followup visits to monitor your healing. Few if any surgeons would charge for this service, but if you don't ask...
Also, ask about your surgeon's touchup policy. If he/she does touchups that require a steep facility fee, you might get stuck the bill even if they don''t charge a surgical fee.

Vaginal changes with children and aging.
After child birth the vaginal canal is stretched. Some women develop vaginal prolapse/ laxity related issues due to this. Also, the aging causes the vaginal tissue to be thin and less lubricated. This can make sexual activity uncomfortable. Multiple options for women to consider include treatment with estrogen creams( $300/month), Laser vaginal therapies or radio frequency ($2.1-4K) or surgery ($5-10K). As a surgeon who specializes in complex vaginal reconstructive surgery, I have found that the Laser ( MonaLisa) and radio frequency (ThermiVa) options at our specialized center is very effective to restore women to a more youthful state with no cutting, down time or anesthesia. The MonaLisa takes 5 minutes with minimal discomfort while the ThermiVa takes 40 minutes with no discomfort allowing my patients to return to work the same day.

Below are other criteria to use when selecting a Plastic surgeon.
Questions to ask your potential plastic surgeon (Answering NO is a big red flag)
1) Are you a plastic surgeon? (You should research the differences between cosmetic surgeon & plastic surgeon. Make sure that your plastic surgeon is a trained surgeon! You may be surprised)
2) Are you board certified in Plastic Surgery? (Board certified in what? You are looking for the American Board of Plastic Surgery. There are many boards and some are fake. Make sure that the certifying board is a member board of the American Board of Medical Specialties or the American Osteopathic Association.)
3) Will the procedure be performed at a fully accredited & certified procedure room or ambulatory surgery center, or hospital
4) Do you have hospital privilege to perform the same procedure you do in the office? Which Hospital?
5) Do you offer complication insurance. How do you handle complications and revision (it does happen, it better to be safe)
The most important decision is to do your homework well. Good luck.
