With genital cosmetic and enhancement procedures becoming increasingly popular, Dr. Placik is pleased to announce that he is the FIRST plastic surgeon in Illinois to offer and perform the G-SHOT®, also known as G-Spot augmentation. As of 7/1/07 he is ONE of ONLY TWENTY-TWO NATIONALLY listed physicians performing the procedure.
Questions About G-Shot®
This is a minimally invasive, non-surgical, treatment that can temporarily enhance/enlarge the Grafenburg spot. Sexually active women with normal sexual function who are at ease with discovering or promoting the prominence of the G-spot are excellent candidates for this technique receiving widespread attention in the media.
G-Spot Augmentation (GSA) was invented and developed by a gynecologist David Matlock, MD, MBA, FACOG
This patent pending method of enlarging or the G-Spot with off-label use of human derived collagen (which is currently FDA approved for use for facial augmentation). The collagen is a naturally occurring biologic product with a long-term safety record for facial enhancement. The FDA approved collagen is a specially developed and processed collagen which doesn’t require pre-injection skin testing like other collagen products on the market.
In a pilot study, 87% of women surveyed after receiving G-Spot Augmentation reported enhanced sexual arousal/gratification. Results do differ among subjects receiving the treatment.
How Does It Work?
G-Spot Augmentation is best performed in patients familiar with the location of the G-Spot prior to undergoing the procedure. If this is unknown to the patient, Dr. Placik and his staff will aid the patient in the identification of their particular anatomy. After consulting with Dr. Placik, G-Spot augmentation is performed in the office under local anesthesia. The actual injection usually takes less than 8 seconds and the total office visit time is usually less than 30 minutes. A custom disposable one-time use lighted speculum makes it easy for Dr. Placik to deliver a specified amount of human engineered collagen directly into the G-Spot once it has been anesthetized. The G-Spot becomes enlarged following the injection measuring approximately the size of a quarter in diameter, and one fourth of an inch in thickness. Anatomic variations do occur and require individualized approaches for each patient.
What to Expect?
Upon your arrival to Dr. Placik’s office, you’ll be asked to complete a medical questionnaire and a brief pertinent history and physical examination will be conducted by Dr. Placik with the assistance of his female staff.
You may also be asked about your goals for the treatment and about any allergies or medical conditions that wouldn't make you a good candidate for the G-Spot augmentation
Prior to the procedure
In the course of the consult, Dr. Placik will educate you on the anatomy of the G-Spot and how to localize it. He will discuss and review the risks and complications and obtain your written consent as well. You should feel comfortable that all your questions have been answered before giving your informed and signed consent detailing the risks, complications and alternatives to the procedure.
Once completed, and if all is clear to proceed, you will be asked to empty your bladder to diminish the desire to urinate during the procedure.
You will then enter the examination room alone and confirm the location of the G-spot while performing a self examination utilizing the physician’s instructions.
You will be placed into a “pap smear” position with you buttock slightly elevated. The doctor will conduct a brief pelvic exam using you assistance to guide him to the G-spot. Measurements are taken and marked according to your instructions. These measurements are transferred to a ruler and then a special speculum. The tagged speculum will then be placed into the vagina and local anesthesia will be administered using a small needle and sterile technique. The collagen filler will then be injected once the G-spot has been numbed. A tampon is inserted which can be removed 4 hours later. The procedure should take from 10-20 minutes.
After the procedure
No recovery time is necessary. You can proceed with the rest of your day’s plans! Patients typically experience a scant bleeding which is easily managed by the tampon and typical of the amount of bleeding one observes after drawing blood.
Four hours after the procedure, the tampon may be removed and you may resume sexual activity. Results may last up to 4 months. Results do differ among individuals.
