The upper region of a woman’s pubic area, known as the mons pubis, can become enlarged due to weight gain, childbirth, or aging. Excess skin and fat on the mons pubis can interfere with everyday function and cause a change in the appearance of this area. Women who have a sizeable pubic mound may experience difficulty finding clothing that fits properly, and excess sagging skin can interfere with urination and sexual relations.
Monsplasty, or a pubic lift, aims to correct sagging skin and extra fat on the pubic mound that is not corrected by abdominoplasty (tummy tuck surgery) or other procedures. Monsplasty helps reduce and tighten the mons pubis and can be performed for both cosmetic and functional reasons.
Monsplasty is often performed in combination with tummy tuck surgery, a body lift, or a Mommy Makeover to achieve maximum satisfaction, or at the same time as labiaplasty and vaginoplasty to rejuvenate the entire female pubic region. Dr. Davison and Dr. Pinell skillfully reduce sagging skin and tighten the remaining muscles and tissues to improve appearance and restore normal function.
Dr. Davison performs monsplasty often, and it is a safe, effective, and common cosmetic procedure. Sagging skin and excess fat are removed, and the mons pubis is lifted.
Monsplasty restores normal urinary function, which can be negatively impacted when skin and fat develop on the mons pubis. When these concerns are addressed, full urinary function can be restored.
After eliminating fat and skin from the pubic region, the appearance of the area is improved, and healthy self-esteem can be restored. When combined with a tummy tuck and body lift, your ideal body can be achieved.
Every recovery will vary, but patients generally experience mild swelling, bruising, and discomfort. You are encouraged to begin taking gentle walks the day after your surgery. Many patients return to work after one week. Swelling and bruising should significantly reduce in two or three weeks. Exercising and submerging in water should wait at least three weeks or until you are cleared by your surgeon.
After you are sedated and anesthetized, your surgeon makes an incision to remove excess fat, trim away sagging skin, and sculpt the mons pubis by tightening and lifting underlying muscle and tissue.
The incisions are then closed using sutures, revealing a smoother, more feminine pubic contour.
Your pain should be minimal and can be controlled with prescription medications.
