Can Excess Fat Be Taken from the Vagina?

Doctor Answers 5

Yes fat reduction from the vaginal area can easily be done using liposuction.

Most often excess fat is found in the mons area with some extension into the labia majora.  If you have good skin tone and young then no removal of skin will be necessary.  This procedure can either be done under local or general anesthesia.  You would wear compression underwear after surgery to minimize swelling.

Excess fat in vaginal area.

The area surrounding the vagina or mons pubis as it is known often enlarges with weight gain and is a concern to women. This can be easily addressed with liposuction or excisional surgery under local anesthesia.

Liposuction of the pubic area

You are most likely referring to the "mons pubis" and yes, you can have the excess fat removed through Liposuction from that area.

Thank you for your question.

Fat accumulations in the external genitalia (vagina, labia, mons)

SEE VIDEO FOR ANATOMY:

The vagina does not accumulate fat. However, of the external genitalia, fat can be localized to the mons pubis or labia majora. I have attached a video which describes the anatomy.

Excess fat around the vagina

Normally, woman can accumulate excess fat in the pubic area or even in the outer areas of the vagina. These areas can be liposuctioned. If there is excess skin, then skin can be trimmed which may help with the overall appearance.
