Enlarged mons pubis in teenager

During adolescence fat may deposit in areas such as the mons pubis, and cause an unsightly bulging. This may be corrected with liposuction of the area. Since you are a minor, you will need to have a parent or guardian present for any consultation or procedure performed by a plastic surgeon.

If there are enough functional problems, it will be covered by insurance. It seems that you may be a candidate for Liposuction of the area alone or lift of the area. It would depend on the degree of excessive skin and ratio of excess fat to the excess skin. A good examination can give you the answer immediately.
Hope this was helpful.

This can be normal and can respond to liposuction. If you and your parent/guardian consent after a surgeon consults with you, you could see flattening. The liposuction could cost a few thousand dollars depending on the geographical area.

You could potentially have this treated with liposuction and/or a mons pubis lift for excessive or redundant skin. Because this is not a functional condition, it is unlikely to be covered by insurance.

Mons Pubis Surgery?

+1

Thank you for the question.

It is not unusual for the pubic area to be an area of concern. This area may be large ( prominent) , ptotic (low), or deflated.    How to best address your specific concerns will depend on physical examination. Generally, treatment will involve excision of excess/ ptopic skin plus or minus liposuctioning.

I would suggest in person consultation with well experienced board-certified plastic surgeons.

Best wishes.

Mons pubis fullness

The mons pubis is an area that can accumulate fatty tissue. This may be treated with liposuction, of course as a minor you would need parental approval.

Liposuction reduces a large mons pubis

+1

The mons area which is just at the level of the pubic bone can change with puberty and will accumulate more fat. The amount of fat can be a concern and other too have expressed anxiety about feeling like a boy in this area, especially when they lie down at the pool or beach. We commonly use ultrasonic liposuction through the belly button to avoid a scar to reduce the fat and prominence. The procedure works very well to reduce the size and the embarrassment.

Best of luck,

Without a photograph it is impossible to specifically comment on your particular situation. In general, this area can be nicely flattened with Liposuction. However, if associated with sagging a short C-section like incision may be used to lift the Mons as well.

Liposuction makes a big difference for fatty mons pubis.

Fatty mons pubis does very well with liposuction under local anesthesia for about $2500.  Sincerely,
