Monsplasty Turkey (mons Pubis Lift)

Monsplasty Turkey (Mons Pubis Lift)


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.

What Causes Enlarged Mons Pubis?

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:

  • Weight gain,
  • Child birth, especially by C-Section,
  • Sudden loss of massive weight after bariatric surgery,
  • Aging,
  • Genetic reasons.

How can the mons pubis be reduced in size?

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:

  • Monsplasty,
  • Mons pubis liposuction.

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).

Does a tummy tuck lift the mons pubis?

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.

How do I know if I need a pubic lift?

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.

Is there an alternative to surgery for mons pubis size reduction?

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.

Why is monsplasty performed?

Monsplasty is performed for the following reasons:

  • Increased self esteem during intimate moments,
  • Better appearance with bikini and tight clothes,
  • Easier hygiene and epilation by removing excessive fatty tissue,
  • Pain due to stretching during sex can be decreased.

What should you expect after a monsplasty?

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.

  • Stop consuming alcohol 2 days before surgery,
  • Stop smoking 2 weeks before surgery,
  • Stop taking blood thinner medicine like aspirin, heparin (after consulting your doctor) and vitamin supplements,
  • Do not eat or drink anything 12 hours before surgery.

Anesthesia for monsplasty

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.
