Liposuction on the Pubic Area?

I was wondering if there is a way to have Liposuction on a woman's pubic area? I had lost weight and have a fatty patch down there.

Liposuction and Pubic Area

Yes, liposuction will correct a fatty deposit, but will not correct loose or sagging skin.  I would speak with a board certified plastic surgeon for an evaluation.

Lipo the mons


The area that you are referring to is known as the mons pubis and can readily be contoured with liposuction.  I sometimes include liposuction in this area when performing tummy tuck surgery, but it can certainly be performed as an isolated procedure.  Good luck!

Pubic area liposuction a good option

Liposuction is the preferred treatment for localized subcutaneous fat that does not respond to diet or exercise. It works well in most areas of the body.

The pubic area is normally evaluated as part of abdominal contouring (liposuction or tummy tuck), but can be done selectively. Your surgeon may focus on whether you have looseness in addition to excess fat during an examination. Liposuction alone would not tighten looseness in that area, which often occurs with major weight loss. If that were an issue, tummy tuck with specific tightening of the pubic area would be better.

Yes, Liposuction can be done on the pubic area

Disproportionate fullness and fatty accumulation can occur in the pubic area resulting in an unpleasing prominence. Liposculpture of this area can be done to achieve a more pleasing contour using a combination of technques including Smart Lipo, a new method of liposuction that uses laser light to liquifey fat and tighten the surrounding skin. This technique involves less side effects and downtime than traditional liposuction and is particularly good for small areas of fat deposits.

Liposuction in the pubic area is common

The fatty patch you have is very common and the best way to decrease the size is with liposuction. Many times this done at the time of a tummy tuck or other liposuction. The area may get loose and you will notice some skin laxity but his is generally better than the fullness of the fat patch.

Liposuction in this area will give you some bruising and swelling into the labia that will require some support and compression but should go away.

Liposuction on the Pubic Area?

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 your physical examination and goals. Generally, treatment will involve excision of excess/ ptotic skin plus or minus liposuctioning.

I would suggest that you discuss your concerns/goals directly with your plastic surgeon, in front of the full-length mirror. Working together you will come up with the best course of action.

Best wishes.

Liposuction of the pubic mons

The mons pubis area is very amenable to liposuction and can be recontoured down nicely in selected cases.  However, if you are also experiencing sagging in this area, liposuction may not be the best treatment.  I would seek an in-person consultation with an experienced plastic surgeon.

Tummy Tuck & Liposuction Following Weight Loss for Pubic Area

It’s not unusual for patients to be concerned about the appearance of their pubic region following massive weight loss. Under these circumstances, patients complain of localized pubic fat collections which are often associated with excess saggy skin in the area.
When this situation arises, liposuction may not adequately address the problem if loose skin is present. For this reason, tummy tuck surgery might be more appropriate. It’s virtually impossible to make a recommendation regarding your situation without pictures or a physical examination.
It’s therefore important to consult a board-certified plastic surgeon with experience treating massive weight loss patients. This surgeon should be able to outline a plan that’s appropriate for your unique anatomic findings.

Liposuction of the pubic region

The mons, or pubic area, is an area that is commonly addressed after significant weight loss.  If your problem is only fat, liposuction can certainly help.  If your issue also includes excess skin, an excision of the extra tissue may be in order.  Ask a Board certified plastic surgeon for an evaluation!

Liposuction of Mons Pubic area

Fat removal from the pubic area is frequently requested in my private practice. Liposuction of the pubis area is very effective in removing this fat which is usually resistant to diet and exercise. I routinely perform this procedure in my Atlanta practice.
