An overly prominent mons pubis, the fatty area just over the pubic bone, can lead to physical discomfort and self-consciousness. Mons pubis surgery can help slim down a prominent mons pubis (sometimes referred to by the slang term “FUPA”) for a smoother, more discreet appearance. The mons pubis can become more pronounced due to weight gain or pregnancy-related changes in the body. However, some women may be genetically predisposed to a more visible mons pubis.
The mons pubis area is composed mainly of fat and, in some cases, lax skin. Liposuction of the mons pubis is a minimally invasive procedure in which the fat is suctioned from the mons pubis area, making it flatter and less prominent. At The Centre for Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Abdollah Malek uses tumescent liposuction, SmartLipo, Bodytite, or Vaser Liposuction to reduce the mons pubis through tiny incisions. Sometimes with liposuction alone, the mons area can improve drastically. However, depending on the grade of laxity will determine the technique chosen to treat the area.
Besides the development of excess fat, the skin and supportive structure of the mons may take on a lax, saggy look, often as part of the natural aging process. A mons lift, or Monsplasty with reduction and suspension, can restore a tighter, more youthful appearance to the mons. A full monsplasty takes this correction one step further by including the surgical removal of excess skin and tissue and eliminating fatty deposits via liposuction.
Aviva by Inmode can also be used to improve the mons area. Aviva is a state-of-the-art small contraction device delivering functional and cosmetic benefits to external delicate tissues. Depending on the grade of laxity and excess tissue, The Centre for Cosmetic Surgery has many minimally invasive options to help reduce the appearance of heavy a mons pubis area. This is done by making 1cm incisions and using Radio Frequency to melt the stubborn fat and tighten the skin simultaneously.
Suppose you have felt self-conscious about the size or shape of your pubic mound. If you’re unhappy with changes in your mons following pregnancy or a fluctuation in weight, you may be a candidate for mons pubis surgery. It’s important to realize that mons pubis surgery will only improve the cosmetic appearance of your pubic area and will not impact sexual function. If one of your goals is to enhance sensation, Dr. Malek may recommend a clitoral hood reduction or G-spot enhancement in addition to mons pubis surgery.
