Can monsplasty and pelvic prolapse repair (cystocele, rectocle and hysterectomy) surgeries be combined?

I am 47 years and 4 years post circumferential belt lipectomy with no other health problems. The large and sagging mons pubis negatively affects urination, hygiene, sexual function, and comfort in clothes.

Monsplasty procedure combined

These procedures can definitely be combined. A monsplasty is a common procedure to request after a significant weight loss. best of luck.

It is possible to do both at the same time. Unfortunately, most surgeons are not skilled in monsplasty. You will need a urogynecologist for the vaginal surgery and a plastic surgeon for the monsplasty. I have published on monsplasty in the plastic surgical literature.

Combining hysterectomy, cystocoele, and rectocoele with monsplasty is an excellent choice

Performing a monsplaty will actually tend to augment the functional result of your cystocoele and rectocoele. I believe it should be an integral part of the pre-op analysis of all such procedures, and should be done whenever indicated.

Indeed these two operations can be performed at the same time provided the patient is otherwise healthy for surgery. I commonly team up with a gynecologist colleague for this combination of surgeries when presented to my office a half a dozen times or so per year. Glad to help...
