G-Shot in town: Sexual wellness for women is on the cards now
Much like lip-plumping jabs, this is a shot that injects collagen straight into the G-spot, but the efficacy is not documented. We ask 6 experts what they think about G-spot amplification.
If your bedroom fantasy has surpassed reading erotic fiction like Fifty Shades of Grey, and if you’re up for promises that could offer new levels of sexual pleasures, the G-shot may be worth a try.
Dr. Bharti Magoo, a Delhi-based aesthetician, was one of the first to suggest the G-shot for women so they wouldn’t have to fake orgasms, but could instead opt for augmentation. The G-shot is an injection that helps in improving a woman’s sexual pleasure.
What is the G-shot?
Much like lip-plumping jabs, the treatment involves injecting collagen straight into the G-spot. Named after Dr Ernest Grafenberg, the spot is defined as an erogenous area of the vagina.
There are several myths surrounding this breakthrough, and while some call it the discovery of a new pleasure zone, others claim the procedure is pointless and painful. Since the opinion on the procedure is split, we spoke to experts to debate the topic.
Here are the pros and cons for you to weigh before jumping the gun!
Why do women want it?
Some researchers claim that the cosmetic filler may make multiple-orgasms a reality and refer to it as a new powerhouse for female arousal. Dr DJS Tulla, Plastic & Cosmetic Surgeon, Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery, Primus Hospital, Delhi, said, “The procedure is safe if done by trained plastic surgeons in sterile settings. With sexual awakening and liberation and females asserting themselves, this procedure is further expected to increase.”
Dr Priyanka Mehta, Senior Gynaecologist at ePsyClinic.com explained that the actual injection usually takes less than eight seconds and the total time in the examination room is usually less than 15 minutes. A specially designed speculum is used to assist in the delivery of a specified amount of cosmetic filler directly into the G-spot after rendering local anesthesia. She further explained, “G-spot augmentation can be done as a one-off permanent procedure by using dermal fat grafts which is more expensive and also needs six weeks of sexual abstinence.”
Dr Shivani Sachdev Gour, IVF Expert & Gynaecologist at SCI Healthcare, Delhi, stressed that the procedure is not long-lasting and has to be repeated every four to five months because the fillers tend to get dissolved.
Leaving aside the probability of enhanced sexual pleasure, some plastic surgeons describe it as a gimmick due to the lack of data supporting the efficacy of these procedures and their potential complications. The possible side-effects of these procedures according to some surgeons include scarring and reduction of libido. Experts are warning that the long-term effect of injecting a foreign material into the vagina is uncertain.
In fact, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists Society issued a statement saying that the “Safety and effectiveness of procedures such as ‘Designer Vaginoplasty’ and ‘G-spot amplification’ have not been confirmed scientifically”.
Dr. Vinod Vij, Senior Cosmetic Surgeon at Fortis Hospital, Mumbai, said “The treatment so far is more based on patient feedback and the physician’s experiences of treating such cases. Some 87% women reported enhanced sexual arousal and orgasms after receiving the G-spot filler in a pilot study. Moreover, the FDA approval is still pending for this treatment and there is no published medical evidence or study to support these treatments. So the results are more anecdotal and experience based.”
Adding a piece of caution, Dr Soma Sarkar, Cosmetic Dermatologist at About Face, Mumbai said “Women should be informed about the lack of data supporting the efficacy of these procedures and their potential complications, including infection, altered sensation, painful intercourse, adhesions and scarring.’
Regardless of the heaps of information surrounding a woman’s sexual awareness in this day and age, the curiosity around the existence of one of the most legendary erogenous zones still remains unanswered! All, we can say is, to each, her own.
