About Mons Reduction

A mons reduction is performed to correct the pubic area when it descends or collapses downward due to weight fluctuation, pregnancy, or age. In some cases, hormone changes can also cause excess tissue to develop inside the mons pubis. The mons pubis is the area outlined by the pubic hair and includes the pubic bone and the soft tissue above the bone. The excess skin and fat can decrease self-confidence, and create bulges and creases that can be seen when wearing fitted clothing. Leesburg plastic surgeon Dr. Phillip Chang uses both modern surgical techniques (pubic lift) and liposuction to achieve the desired contour of the mons pubis. Call Aesthetica Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center in Leesburg, VA to schedule a private consultation to learn more. 

Ideal Candidates

You may be a great candidate for mons reduction surgery if you have:

  • Lost a massive amount of weight
  • An enlarged mons pubis due to pregnancy, advanced age, or obesity
  • Excess drooping of the mons
  • A bulge that's visible with tight clothing
  • Tried other options without success such as diet and exercise

Surgical Technique

A pubic lift is usually performed with general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure in 1 – 2 hours. Dr. Chang starts by making incision lines within the creases of the groin, which will minimize visible scarring. Through these incisions, liposuction is performed to remove excess fat and then the loose skin is trimmed away, removed, and re-positioned in order to lift and tighten the mons pubis area. If desired, the removed fat can be transferred to the outer lips of the vagina, which commonly loses volume due to aging. The incisions are closed with sutures, which will stay in place for about 1 – 2 weeks.

What to Expect

After the surgery, most patients are able to return home for their recovery. There will be mild discomfort and swelling for the first few days but this can be alleviated with Dr. Chang’s post-operative instructions. A compression garment will also be used to maintain the correct shape of the mons pubis. Most patients can return to work after one week, but a full recovery will take about six weeks. Strenuous activity and sexual activity should be avoided until optimal healing has occurred. After a pubic lift and liposuction, the mons pubis area will be flatter and will not be visible under tight clothing and swimsuits. This outcome often provides patients with the self-confidence they need to boldly show off their beautiful curves. 

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a mons reduction cost?
The cost of treatment will be dependent upon your unique needs and condition. During your initial consultation with Dr. Chang, the price of your procedure can be discussed along with financing options. 

Will I need more than one procedure?
If you maintain a healthy, stable weight after the procedure, the results will be long lasting. Any pregnancies, weight gain or loss after the pubic lift and liposuction will alter the effects of the procedure.

How do I know if I need a mons reduction?
It can be difficult to tell for yourself if your problem is an enlarged labia, mons pubis, or abdomen. If you have any concerns about the size or shape of your body in the pubic area or lower abdomen, Dr. Chang can determine what specific area is causing your concerns and discuss your treatment options.

Can a mons lift be combined with other procedures?
A pubic lift is sometimes performed with an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) for more dramatic results. During your consultation, Dr. Chang will go over all of your body concerns and create a personalized treatment plan for the best results.

What are the risks of a mons reduction?
A pubic lift and liposuction are generally safe procedures with no complications. There will be mild pain and swelling after the surgery. Possible but unlikely risks include ongoing pain, bleeding, infection, and asymmetry. Following Dr. Chang’s pre- and post-operative instructions will minimize these risks.
