Reasons patients want a monsplasty
Some women battle with a bulge of excess fat and skin in the mons. There may also be a desire to have the procedure after a large amount of weight is lost.
1. Excessive Volume
Some women may have a naturally prominent or large mons pubis due to genetics or weight fluctuations.
2. Sagging or Laxity
Aging, childbirth, and weight changes can lead to a loss of skin elasticity and sagging in the mons pubis region.
An enlarged or sagging mons pubis can cause discomfort, especially during activities like exercise, wearing tight clothing, or during sexual intimacy.
The Monsplasty Procedure
During a monsplasty procedure, our College of Surgeons Certified Plastic Surgeon will customize the approach based on the your individual needs and concerns. The surgery typically involves the following steps:
The surgeon makes an incision in the pubic area, carefully placed to minimize visibility. The incision location and length depend on the amount of excess tissue that needs to be removed and the specific surgical technique used.
2. Tissue Reduction or Tightening
The surgeon will remove excess fat and/or skin from the mons pubis region to create a more aesthetically pleasing contour. In cases where skin laxity is an issue, the remaining skin may be tightened for a firmer appearance.
3. Liposuction (optional)
Liposuction may be utilized to remove excess fat deposits and achieve a smoother, more sculpted contour in the mons pubis area.
The incisions are meticulously closed with sutures, and the surgeon may use dissolvable stitches to minimize the need for suture removal.
Recovery and Results
After the procedure, patients can expect some swelling and bruising in the treated area, which will gradually subside over time. Pain medication may be prescribed to manage any discomfort during the initial recovery period. It's essential to follow the surgeon's post-operative care instructions diligently to promote proper healing and achieve optimal results.
The results of a monsplasty are typically long-lasting, providing patients with improved aesthetics, enhanced comfort, and increased self-confidence. As with any surgery, individual results may vary based on factors such as the patient's anatomy, skin quality, and adherence to post-operative care.
Considerations and Consultation
If you are considering a monsplasty procedure, it's crucial to schedule a consultation with a reputable and experienced plastic surgeon. During the consultation, the surgeon will assess your concerns, evaluate your medical history, and discuss the surgical options best suited to your unique needs. They will also inform you about the potential risks and benefits associated with the procedure, allowing you to make an informed decision about moving forward with monsplasty.
Overall, monsplasty can be an excellent solution for individuals seeking to enhance their body's appearance and boost their self-confidence by addressing concerns related to the mons pubis region.
