Liposuction and lift of the mons pubis is performed to reduces a prominent or protruding mons pubis.
Although weight gain usually plays a role in contributing to an enlarged mons pubis it is interesting to note 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 due to the natural aging process.
A patient may elect mons pubic lift and mon pubis reduction surgery due to varying reasons including a disproportionate amount of fat or skin on the mons which results in a bulging or drooping appearance.
Reduction of the mons pubis can be achieved by liposuction or excision – if there is bulging, redundant or sagging tissue or if patient has had a lot of weight loss and there is a lot of extra hanging tissue. If only liposuction is needed to reach the desired results, a few tiny incisions are made and the extra fat is removed. Each mons pubic lift and reduction is a customizable procedure and you will have the opportunity to discuss your desired results with Dr. Richard Swift.
