Part of the problem with G-spot enhancement or 'amplification', is that many dispute whether the G-spot exists at all. It was originally described as a spot in the internal tissue behind the bladder. In 2008, Italian researchers claimed eight out of 30 women had thicker tissue at the front of the vagina, which could be detected in ultrasound and seemed to be connected to arousal. But research is limited and contradictory. Some suggest the G-spot could be part of the sensitive nerves of the genital area, others that it is tissue similar to the prostate gland in men.
Dr Boynton says: 'There's evidence indicating some women appear to have a sensitive spot in this area, but you aren't deficient if you don't have it. It's not vital for pleasure or orgasm.' Dr Glancey, naturally, insists the G-spot is a reality. 'It's not rocket science to find the specific tissues of the G-spot. Most women are aware of where the area is, I just confirm it. 'Once I've found it, I inject a lot of hyaluronic acid (around three times the amount used to fill nose to mouth lines) to raise the area up, so it's more easily felt. It's hard to ensure all the filler goes underneath the G-spot, so some doctors put filler into the structure on purpose to hydrate and plump the area, just as you would with the mouth.'

However, other doctors simply don't believe that injecting a filler made of hyaluronic acid can physically increase the size of the area, as Dr Glancey claims. When lips are filled, it merely stretches the skin, but if the G-spot is a collection of sensitive nerve endings, you can't make them bigger with filler, and if it's glandular tissue, you can't make that bigger by putting filler under it - though you could raise the area up so it can be felt more easily.SEXTASY!

'You cannot increase the size of the spot simply by putting filler into the flesh there,' says Dr Banwell. 'It's a myth and it doesn't even make sense. We also know that when you stretch flesh or skin it normally becomes less sensitive, even numb.' He's particularly worried that doctors who perform the injections advise patients to return every four to six months to repeat the procedure (Dr Glancey says 60 per cent of her patients have returned for at least one further treatment). 'There are unknown dangers in injecting a synthetic material, albeit one that mimics something found in human bodies, into a very sensitive part of the female anatomy,' warns Dr Banwell. 'We don't know what the long-term risks and complications may be. 'If there are repeated injections into one small area, the effects may include scarring, alterations in libido and less sensitivity. 'We know from injecting facial fillers that even the act of injecting an area can cause scarring under the surface, which produces lumps and bumps under the skin. I think this has the potential to be catastrophic.'
