Monsplasty, also known as pubic lift or pubic mound lift, is a surgical procedure that involves removing excess skin and fat from the pubic area. The goal of this surgery is to reshape and contour the mons pubis, which is the fatty tissue located above the pubic bone and directly below the lower abdomen.
Women may consider a monsplasty surgery for a variety of reasons. For instance, women who are unhappy with the appearance of their mons pubis due to sagging or excess tissue may choose to have this surgery to achieve a more aesthetically pleasing look. Some women may choose a pubic lift to improve sexual function because they experience discomfort or pain during sexual activity due to excess tissue in the pubic area. Others may opt for a pubic lift to improve their overall self-confidence because of their unhappiness with the appearance of their pubic area. This can be due to factors such as weight gain or loss, aging, or genetics. They may feel that their pubic area looks saggy, bulging, or asymmetrical, which can affect their self-confidence and comfort during intimate situations.
Good candidates for Monsplasty surgery are typically women who are in good overall health, have realistic expectations for the outcome of the surgery, and are bothered by excess tissue in the pubic area. It is important for patients to discuss their goals and concerns with their board-certified plastic surgeon and to be fully informed about the risks and benefits of the procedure before making a decision.
The Monsplasty procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia and can take several hours to complete, depending on the extent of the procedure. The specific technique used may vary depending on the patient's individual anatomy and the surgeon's preference. To begin, your surgeon will mark the areas on the pubic region where the incisions will be made. He will make incisions along the marked areas, usually below the bikini line to conceal any visible scarring. The incisions may be vertical, horizontal, or a combination of both, depending on the patient's needs. The surgeon will then remove any excess skin, fat, and tissue from the pubic area, using techniques such as liposuction or excision. Next, the remaining tissue in the pubic area is tightened to create a smoother, flatter contour. Finally, incisions will be closed with sutures or surgical adhesive and covered with sterile dressings to protect them from infection and to aid in the healing process. After the surgery, patients can expect to experience some discomfort, swelling, and bruising in the pubic area. To learn more details, please read our frequently asked question about monsplasty.
