The mons pubis is the area at the pubic bone and above the labia. The mons can be “puffy” in some patients, giving more fullness than they would like. The fullness can be prominent in yoga pants, swim suits, tight jeans, and dresses. Mons liposuction (with SmartLipo or tumescent lipo) can effectively reduce the “puffiness” of the area and help to tighten the tissue with an easy procedure.
An ideal candidate for mons pubis reduction may have:
The procedure takes less than an hour and is almost always done under local anesthesia. There is minimal to no downtime.
The recovery is very comfortable with minimal restrictions and compression to the area for 3-4 weeks.
If the patient has anxiety about local anesthesia liposuction, then Pro-Nox can also be used for additional comfort.
Mons liposuction is sometimes performed in conjunction with abdominoplasty surgery, also known as a tummy tuck.
