Mons pubis is the fatty tissue covering the pubic bone. Its main function is to prevent pain during sexual intercourse, by forming a cushion over the pubic bone. This area also contains glands which secrete pheromones for sexual attraction.
It may be enlarged and fatty due to excessive weight gain. It may be decreased in size by a monsplasty surgical procedure.
Monsplasty is also known as pubic lift, puboplasty or venus hill surgery. There is a triangular area of hair-covered fat tissue in the bikini region which may become saggy and loose due to several reasons.
The following may cause an enlargement in mons pubis:
Some patients have a question in their mind: How can you get rid of mons pubis fat?
There are two main surgical options to reduce the size of mons pubis:
Mons pubis may be reduced in size by choosing the appropriate method for each patient. Monsplasty is the preffered method in patients with excessive loose skin that needs to be removed surgically. It may be combined to an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck surgery). Because during an abdominoplasty, excessive loose skin and underlying fat tissue is removed from the abdominal area and the remaining enlarged, saggy mons pubis may become more prominant.
Mons pubis liposuction can be an alternative in patients without excessive loose skin. Fat tissue can be homogenously suctioned using plastic cannules. The fat tissue removed by liposuction can be used as filler in other areas of the body such as, labia majora (labial puff) or the G spot in the vagina (G shot).
Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) procedure may remove excess fat and tissue from the abdominal area and so a tummy tuck does lift the mons pubis, but may not be enough for all patients. For a more balanced look, monsplasty can be combined to an abdominoplasty to remove all excessive skin and underlying fat tissue in the area, leading to a lean belly and pubic area.
If you think your mons pubis is prominant with excessive loose skin and/or fat and you feel uncomfortable wearing tight clothes, you may need a consultation to evaluate the indication for pubic lift surgery.
Before deciding for surgery, the best alternative to mons pubis size reduction surgery is to start a healthy diet and regular exercise program. Weight loss and exercise can help lose some of the fatty tissue in the mons pubis area. But when the patient reaches ideal weight and there is still localised fat deposition in the area, surgery is indicated.
Monsplasty is performed for the following reasons:
Just like all other surgical procedures, preoperative thorough evaluation is very important before a monsplasty.
You should have realistic expectations about the surgery, better function and appearance should be expected rather than a perfect outcome.
If you are overweight, you are recommended to go on a diet and exercise programme to reach a healthy weight before surgery. Losing more weight after surgery may necessitate additional surgery to remove excessive loose skin tissue.
If you have diabetes, it should be regulated before surgery for better wound healing.
Chronic health problems like hypertension, heart disease, thyroid disease should be consulted and stabilised before surgery to decrease surgical risks.
Monsplasty can be performed under local anesthesia or under general anesthesia. Sometimes sedation may be combined with local anesthesia.
It is most commonly performed as an outpatient procedure, which means the patient can go home after having some rest in the clinic on the same day of surgery.
Here is what you will experience on the day of your monsplasty surgery:
Pubic lift or mons pubis lift surgery usually takes about 30-60 minutes, most patients can go home on the same day of surgery after having enough rest at the clinic.
Monsplasty scar is similar to the scar of patients who have had a cesarian delivery. It usually stays under the bikini line and in most patients it is hardly visible.
Monsplasty for international patients can be performed in one of our affiliated hospitals in Antalya, Ankara or Istanbul. Patients who are interested in having a genital esthetic procedure by our team can contact us through e-mail or whatsapp for detailed information.
Like all other surgical procedures, it is normal to have pain after monsplasty procedure which can be relieved by having enough rest and taking painkillers prescribed by your surgeon.
Full recovery after a monsplasty procedure may take 4-6 weeks. Patients can start walking as soon as they are awake from anesthesia but they should have enough rest during the first few weeks after surgery for better recovery.
Here is what you can expect after monsplasty surgery:
Pubic Lift (monsplasty) surgery cost in Turkey depends on the hospital chosen, whether it will be planned as an outpatient or inpatient procedure, method of surgery, type of anesthesia and whether additional procedures will be necessary. For example the monsplasty and concommitant tummy tuck cost is not the same as the monsplasty cost alone.
