    What is the G Shot?

    First, the G Shot is a simple, pain-free procedure which is performed in the office. Second, the G Shot provides a nice enhancement of the most sensitive spot on the vaginal wall. There are many theories about the location of the “G spot” but experts agree that the G spot is a patch of tissue on the anterior (upper) vaginal wall which is often more prominent than the surrounding tissue. Many of the nerve endings associated with sexual pleasure are concentrated in the clitoris and the G spot. Some women don’t experience much sensation in the G spot while others find it to be a very sensitive area. The G Shot works best in women who already experience heightened sensation in the G spot area. Enhancing the volume and prominence of this area on the vaginal wall improves sensation for both the woman and her partner.

    How does the G Shot work?

    I completely understand that it’s a little intimidating and embarrassing for a patient to talk about these procedures during a consult. Patients have a lot of questions about procedures like the G Shot, or for that matter, anything to do with sexual aesthetics & vaginal rejuvenation, but they’re often afraid to ask. We’ve worked very hard to make this experience as comfortable and un-intimidating as possible. Often for procedures like the G Shot I will schedule the consult and the procedure on the same day. This means just one trip to the doctor! This means just one quick discussion about the procedure and what results the patient is trying to achieve, then a little numbing medicine, a little G Shot, and she’s out the door within the hour! In short, the G Shot is an injection of filler into the G spot.

    Use of Fillers For The G-Shot

    I typically use hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm but I’ve performed a number of G Shots by transferring the patient’s own fat into the G spot area. Both of these fillers (fat and hyaluronic acid, or HA) have their advantages and disadvantages. The hyaluronic acid G Shot is the simplest of in-office enhancements and only takes a few minutes. The patient can easily be in and out of the office in 20-30 minutes and the HA enhancement can last 9 months or longer. A G Shot with HA can also be repeated months later for further sexual enhancement without any risk of scar tissue formation or other side effects. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring component of the human body and the results of an HA G Shot actually improve with time because HA absorbs water causing additional prominence of the G spot.

    Using The Patient’s Own Purified Fat For A G-Shot

    Performing a G Shot with the patient’s fat takes a few extra minutes as compared to HA but the results are excellent. G spot enhancement using the patient’s own fat will also last 9 months or longer and it can be repeated to improve the desired effect. Another advantage of using fat is that it can easily be combined with other procedures. If we are performing liposuction of other areas why not transfer some of the fat to the G spot to improve sexual satisfaction? The G shot only requires a few cc’s of fat (1-5cc) but during a typical fat-harvesting procedure I’ll remove 20-30cc of fat. We call this fat “liquid gold” because it is the patient’s own fat, dense in tissue factors and stem cells, and it can be used to enhance multiple areas of the body including the G spot, the labia majora, and labia minora, facial lines & lips, and it can be used for rejuvenation of the hands.

    To reiterate, the G shot is a simple, short, pain-free, in-office procedure which can be performed on the same day as consultation. Patients will often experience heightened sensation afterward with very few, if any, risks or complications.

    Patients of all ages come to a consultation with Dr. McCluskey with a common question: How do I get natural looking, fuller lips? Luckily for them there are a wealth of options to help these patients achieve the look they desire!image-lip

    There are four equally effective procedures that can give patients the ample lips they desire, return a youthful appearance, and help with any loss of the cupids bow.There are many reasons patients seek lip augmentation. Fuller, plumper lips with the desirable cupids bow are traditionally associated with youth and beauty, so for those who have either lost or have never had fullness of the lips, augmentation can create a beautiful difference. Loss of fullness in the lips is extremely common with age, as well as the space between the nose and top lip elongating to give a drawn and drooping appearance to the mouth.

     Fillers (like Restylane or Juvederm)

    In the hands of a skilled surgeon fillers give an beautifully natural fullness to the lips. Fillers are a fantastic option for those who are concerned with the permanence of the procedure as results will fade in 6-12months.

    Fat Transfer

    The most cost effective treatment option, fat transfer involves harvesting fat through liposuction and injecting the fat in to the lips as desired. This can be combined with a liposuction procedure or the amount of fat needed can simply be gathered. With fat transfer, up to 50% of the fat will be reabsorbed in to the body so it essential to transfer a greater quantity of fat to achieve the final look.

    Lip implant


    This is an option for a fuller lip is the insertion of a lip implant, like Permalip, which are available in thee sizes: 3mm, 4mm and 5mm.

    Lip Lift

    A lip lift is a simple procedure that involves making an incision just below the nose to lift the lip creating a more youthful top lip. With this procedure the scar is invisible hidden below the nose, it is most commonly combined with one of the above procedures to also give a fuller lip.

    In the caring hands of an experienced surgeon all options above will result in natural, youthful outcomes and satisfied patients. The procedure used in each case is completely unique to the patient’s aesthetic goals. Each of these procedures can be performed under local anesthesia, or a dental block numbing the mouth with swelling commonly lasting from two to five days and patients returning to their usual activities, including eating, almost immediately. As with all procedures it is extremely important that the patient follows their Doctor’s postoperative instructions!
