Liposuction for Enlarged Mons Pubis


It’s not unusual for a woman to have a prominent mons pubis. This can occur for a variety of reasons. In some cases, a prominent pubic bone may be present. In other cases, loose skin or excess fat may contribute to the problem. The treatment of this condition is entirely dependent upon the cause of the problem.

In the vast majority of cases, excess fat is responsible for this problem. Under these circumstances, liposuction is the treatment of choice. This procedure is associated with excellent clinical results and high levels of patient satisfaction.

If you’re concerned about a prominent mons pubis, consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon is appropriate. This surgeon should be able to perform a physical exam and outline a treatment plan that addresses your specific problems.

Mons Pubis Reduction in Los Angeles


Fullness of the Mons Pubis is very common. It is very embarassing to many women who can not wear tight-fitting pants and bikinis. This can be very sucessfully treated with liposuction of the mons pubis. In women who have had major weight loss the contributing factor is not just excess fat but rather excess hanging skin which requires mons-plasty which requires surgical removal of excess fat.

  • the mons can be too large from fat, fibrous tissue or prominent bone.
  • excess fat is the usual cause.

  • it will help to consult a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for a full examination to see the exact cause and treatment of the enlargement 
  • Hope this helps. Best wishes.

How Do I Get Rid Of An Enlarged Mons Pubis?


The mons pubis is the area at the bottom of the abdomen just above the external genitalia.  This is the area normally covered by pubic hair.  The majority of the makeup of the mons pubis is fat, but sometimes this fat is held in very fibrous tissue.  Normally, the removal of this fat just requires standard liposuction. 

Sometimes the area of the mons pubis is exceedingly long from the labia majora to the true abdominal tissue.  If this occurs, along with liposuction, one needs to excise an ellipse of elongated mons pubis to correct an excess in this area.  Usually in females with enlarged mons pubis, excess fat in the mons pubis also has associated excess fat in the external labia (labia majora).  Here, the enlarged labia majora can be liposuctioned out at the same time.

Enlarged Mons Pubis


This area has a lot of variability in appearance, but how you feel about it is what counts.  During puberty, the area gets fuller along with hips, etc., due to fat accumulation.  This is normal, and good news for you, as liposuction can easily take care of it.

Improving the mons pubis


You are only 19 and I am assuming you have good skin tone. (No photo supplied). If that is correct, then liposuction should work very well. If your skin is loose you might also consider skin removal to tighten the area.
