Mons Pubis Lift and Reduction
Liposuction and lift of the mons pubis, or normal bulge over the pubic bone, is often done in conjunction with abdominal liposuction or an abdominoplasty. The procedure reduces a prominent or protruding mons pubis.
Although weight often plays a role in mons pubis enlargement, it is well-known that the mons pubis region contains a large percentage of hormone-dependent fat that is resistant to diet and exercise. In addition, the mons pubis can become enlarged with pregnancy or droop from aging.
If the skin is only mild-to-moderately stretched with excess fat, Dr. Poulos typically utilizes laser or VASER liposuction to treat the area. For severe skin laxity, an incision is made in the pubic hairline to surgically lift the skin.
A patient may elect surgery of the mons pubis for any reason, including a disporportionate amount of fat or skin on the mons, lending it a bulging or drooping appearance.
As a female plastic surgeon and specialist in body recontouring procedures, Dr. Poulos is uniquely qualifed to perform surgery of the mons. The procedure may take place in our in-office surgical suite under local anesthetic. It can be combined with labiaplasty. Should patients wish to combine the procedure with abdominoplasty, surgery of the mons is best performed in a hospital setting.
After the procedure, you'll wear a compression garment to promote healing. It can take six weeks or more for swelling to subside and the skin to retract.
Our patients report an increased sense of self-confidence after the procedure and are thrilled that they are able to wear form-fitting clothing without embarrassment, many for the first time in years!
If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Poulos and team. We are glad to help.
