We can all have stubborn pockets of fat.

It is possible to have an enlarged mons even though you are thin overall.  I commonly perform liposuction to correct this problem.  The results are excellent.  You would need to wear a compressive undergarment for a couple of weeks to minimize swelling.  The downtime following this procedure is about 3 days.

Mons Pubis Contouring Options

Thin women with a prominent mons pubis will benefit from conservative liposculpture. The goal of the procedure is to reduce the excess fullness without creating an unnatural extreme flatness or giving an overly bony appearance. This is best achieved with the use of fine, narrow-caliber liposuction cannulas. Recovery is mild although swellling in the area is common for the first few weeks. Patient satisfaction is excellent with these procedures.

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.

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.

Thank you for your question about reducing the mons pubis

  • the mons can be too large from fat, fibrous tissue or prominent bone.
  • excess fat is the usual cause.
  • liposuction with a small cannula as an outpatient is the usual treatment,
  • 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.
