Purpose: We named the co-injection of stromal vascular fraction (SVF) and adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cell, which are cells with the highest regenerative capacity of the body derived from adipose tissue, as B-SHOT rejuvenation and investigated whether this new technique is effective in genital area rejuvenation.
Material and Method: 40 female participants participated in the present study. 40 cc lipoaspiration material was reached from the abdominal region. By using fat micronizing device, lipoaspirate was subjected to non-enzymatic mechanical filtration up to 400 microns and then centrifuged. The obtained Stromal Vascular Fraction (FAT JUICE) and adipose derived mesenchymal stem cells were injected with our B-SHOT technique to the clitoris, around the openings of skene glands, vaginal mucosa, and G spot area. All participants were evaluated with VHI and FSFI before and after the application in the 3rd, 6th, 9th and 12th months.
Results: Elasticity, vaginal pH and humidity scores from VHI parameters significantly increased in the 3rd and 6th months after treatment (p < 0.001). In addition, significant increase in the score of the new parameter continued in the 9th month, as well (p < 0.05). Scores of orgasm, satisfaction and pain among FSFI parameters significantly increased in the 3rd and 6th months after treatment.
Conclusion: Our B-SHOT technique may be a new practical rejuvenation protocol for genital rejuvenation, which is a low cost, safe, effective technique, prepared within a short time without the need for additional staff or laboratory and benefits from the regenerative effect of adipose derived mesenchymal stem cells in SVF.
