What is mons pubis liposuction?

Mons pubis liposculpture corrects the excessive volume of the fatty tissue in the part above the labia majora and gives the region a more youthful appearance. Sometimes, the fat accumulated above the genital area is excessive and does not disappear with weight loss. This can give an unattractive, disproportionate appearance. In these cases, the solution involves reducing the adipose tissue of the Mons Pubis.

Who can have Mons Pubis liposuction surgery?

Any women who accumulate excessive fat above the genital area that does not disappear with a low-calorie diet are candidates for mons pubis liposuction. This situation might sometimes be associated with accumulated fat in other parts of the body, such as the stomach. On these occasions, it can be combined with other surgeries or with more extensive liposculpture.

Mons pubis liposuction surgery

The Mons Pubis liposuction surgery involves performing minor liposuction in the area to remove any excess adipose tissue. To do so, several small incisions are made in the pubic area and very thin cannula are inserted to remove the fatty deposits from the mons pubis, giving it a more proportionate appearance.

Mons Pubis liposuction is a short surgery and recovery is fat and causes little discomfort.

Duration, anaesthesia and hospitalisation in mons pubis liposuction

This is a short surgery that can take 30 minutes to one hour. It is often performed under local anaesthesia with sedation, unless it is combined with another type of surgery, such as more extensive liposculpture, dermolipectomy or abdominoplasty, etc. In these cases, the surgeon will decide on the type of anaesthesia used.

If the surgery is isolated, recovery is fast and causes little discomfort.

The results of Mons Pubis liposuction

The results are visible after one and a half months. The new results give women a more proportionate, youthful and balanced mons pubis. In cases where the vagina has moved backwards, this will be corrected once initial swelling has gone down in the area.
