An in-depth consultation with Dr. Agullo is the best way for patients in or near El Paso to learn more about the O-Shot® and how it can help them.
What Is Discussed During My O-Shot® Consultation?
During your consultation, Dr. Agullo will obtain a complete medical history and listen carefully to all of the aesthetic and functional concerns you have about your vagina and sexual response.
Because he offers a wide range of vaginal rejuvenation treatments, he can tailor your treatment plan to meet your unique needs, and if the O-Shot® is suitable for you, he will recommend the procedure.
What Does Receiving the O-Shot® Involve?
The O-Shot® procedure involves collecting some of the patient’s blood and isolating the platelet-rich plasma (PRP), a substance that promotes healing and regeneration. After a local anesthetic is administered, this PRP is injected into the clitoris, labia, and G-spot.
Only well-trained providers certified by the makers of O-Shot® are allowed to perform this procedure.
How Should I Prepare for My O-Shot®?
Do not take aspirin or other NSAIDS for one to two weeks before the procedure. NSAIDs inhibit the regenerative process of PRP, so continue to avoid them for another two weeks after the procedure to achieve the best results.
Shave the area the day before your procedure is scheduled.
What Are Your Concerns?
What Can I Expect for My O-Shot® Recovery?
There is little to no pain following the procedure. Bruising may develop, but it should be mild and will subside quickly.
When Will I Feel My O-Shot® Results?
Most women experience significantly increased sensitivity and report more intense and prolonged orgasms starting from six hours to two days after receiving their O-Shot®. Improvement in urinary incontinence is generally noticeable between one and two weeks, with these benefits becoming more evident at the two-month mark when the PRP has taken full effect.
At Agullo Plastic Surgery, tailored care begins with a full consultation to discuss the goals and options available.
