Named after Dr Grafenberg, the G-spot is a controversial concept that has been studied since the 1940’s. Various scientific anatomical papers have claimed to conclusively prove or disprove its existence.
The G-spot is generally described as existing on the anterior (front) wall of the vagina, approximately 6cm in, and has been related to underlying the urethra, Skene’s gland (the female equivalent of a prostate) or an extension of the clitoris. Some women have a palpable or measurable mass, or a definitive sensitive spot while for others it is a mystery.
Colloquially terms the “G-Shot”, G-spot augmentation is an injection to the G-spot popularised by Dr David Matlock over a decade ago. The objective of G-spot augmentation is to raise a bump on the front wall of the vagina where the G-spot sits to increase the stimulation of this spot during sexual intercourse.
It is thought if you can definitely locate your G-spot then the G-spot augmentation procedure is most likely to work. Even if you have never identified the G-spot for yourself you may still benefit from this procedure. On the other hand, even a definite G-spot location for G-spot augmentation is not a guarantee of increased sexual gratification.
You will lay in a position similar to the one you are in for a Pap smear and if you can locate your G-spot a surgical marker will be used to mark the area. A speculum is used and a fine needle is used to inject Dermal Filler, the same filler used for facial procedures for more than a decade.
The whole G-spot augmentation procedure only requires 15 minutes. A G-spot augmentation may be done at the same time as other cosmetic vaginal surgery including labiaplasty, labia majora augmentation or vaginal tightening.
Who is a good candidate for G-Spot Augmentation?
Someone that is ideally suited to G-spot augmentation is:
A woman with normal sexual function and a healthy sex life
A woman that can locate their G-spot
Who is not a good candidate for G-Spot Augmentation?
Women with unrealistic expectations are not ideal for G-spot augmentations.
How long will I need off work?
No time off work is required.
Normal activities can resume immediately and sex can be had the same day.
Is there discomfort?
Some patients may experience mild discomfort, which is reduced by local anaesthetic in the injection for the augmentation.
Risks and complications
The small risk of complications exists with any procedure. The risks around G-spot augmentation will be discussed at your consultation along with other information on the procedure.
What’s the next step?
Your first step is an initial consultation with Dr Oates. You do not need a GPs referral for this consultation. Or you can have a complementary consultation with one of our Dermal Therapists or Nurses.
If Dr Oates decides that you are suitable candidate for labia majoraplasty and you want to go ahead with the surgery, a booking for the surgery and the pre-operative care is scheduled. The usual waiting period is approximately three to four weeks.
You may wish to speak with one of our qualified Dermal Therapists or Nurse prior to seeing Dr Oates. During this free consultation, a Dermal Therapist/Nurse can discuss both surgical and non-surgical options to treat your cosmetic concern(s).
