Reduction of the Mons PubisIt is fairly common for women to complain of the size and proportion of the Mons pubis. It doesn’t matter what your body weight is, the Mons pubis may contain more hormone-dependent fat that isn’t responsive to traditional methods of diet and exercise at all. In such scenario you should opt for the reduction of Mons pubis. This procedure reduces flabbiness of the Mons pubis and allows women to wear tighter fitting clothes without embarrassment.

What is the treatment?

The procedure is similar to the liposuction done for other body parts. The Mons pubis is reduced using two incisions which are properly concealed as each smaller than the diameter of a pencil. The tumescent solution is infiltrated in the marked area and then with the help of cannula attached to the negative pressure vacuum machine the excess fat is aspirated.

Liposuction of Mons pubis can be done alone or can be combined with liposuction of abdomen or with a tummy tuck procedure.

Post op care

Post-operatively, a compression garment will be worn around the lower waist area to help reduce the swelling and promote skin retraction, which can take six weeks or more to subside. You have to take the prescribed antibiotics and painkiller for 5 days that will take care of the pain. The swelling will subsides after 10 days then gradually you will notice improvement in the shape. You have to wear a compression garment for 1-2 months.

Risks and complications

There are no permanent side effects associated with this procedure. The temporary side effect may lasts for around 10 days include bruising, swelling and discomfort.
