The Specifics

What is an O-shot?

The O-shot (a.k.a. org*sm shot) is a cosmetic procedure to enhance female sexual wellness. Platelet rich plasma is a substance derived from a patient's own blood containing stem cells and growth factors. Injections of PRP around the cl*tor*s and within the vagin*l walls can promote blood flow and cell growth to increase sensitivity, sexual desire, and enhance sexual sensation.

What cosmetic concerns does an O-shot procedure treat?

  1. Female Sexual Wellness: Injections of PRP into erogenous zones, like the cl*toral area, vulva, and vagin*l walls, stimulates blood flow and new tissue growth to enhance sensitivity.

  2. Mommy Makeover: An O-shot can help women experiencing changes in sexual function following a pregnancy.

Who is the ideal candidate for an O-shot procedure?

The ideal candidate for an O-shot procedure is a woman experiencing difficulty achieving org*sm and/or those with urinary incontinence. An O-Shot is not recommended for those seeking treatment for certain sexual dysfunctions like dyspareunia.

What is the average recovery associated with an O-shot procedure?

There is little to not downtime associated with an O-shot procedure. Patients may feel a sense of fullness in the vagin*l area, experience an altered urinary stream, or notice swelling for a few days. All normal activities, however, including sex, may be resumed the same day.

Possible side effects from an O-shot procedure include bleeding, consistent discomfort at the injection site, persistent arousal, constant vagin*l wetness, altered vagin*l sensations, hypersexuality, hematuria, or inconsistent results.

What can someone expect from the results of an O-shot procedure?

The results of an O-shot procedure will be immediately noticeable, and typically last six to 12 months at which time maintenance treatments will be needed. Results vary widely among individuals.

What is the average cost of an O-shot procedure?

An O-shot procedure can cost anywhere from $1,000 to $2,000. The actual cost of an O-shot is dependent upon location, board certified plastic surgeon, and length and involvement of the plastic surgery.
