first of all the cost is not high esp for Manhattan surgeries. u can try and cut corners on the cost, save a few dollars but u will compromise the outcome. I have done sculpting on Mons pubis in conjunction with labiaplasty or with abdominal liposuction. if skin excision is required then I agree with your surgeon's approach.
Lifting the mons pubis is commonly done as part of an abdominoplasty. If you need an abdominoplasty as well, don't miss the opportunity. Costs in Manhattan are likely much higher than other parts of the country, but it is important to stay local in case you have problems. If it is not in the price range for you, better to delay and save and do it right.
The fees for surgery will vary form surgeon to surgeon. Doesn't sound unreasonable in NYC. Best of luck.
We usually take care of the mons pubis when a TT is performed.
Some lipo may be required.
Pictures would help.
Expect to pay more for any procedure performed in NY or LA
Dear Donna, Thank you for posting your interesting question. Each patient must be evaluated individually in order to determine the proper plastic surgical procedure. These procedures are not commodities and are often based on the Board Certified Plastic Surgeon's training, skill set, expertise, judgement, results and geographic location. The costs include the plastic surgeon's time, operating room nurses and supplies, as well as the Board Certified Anesthesiologist. It is difficult to put a price on beauty.

If your quote includes the use of the facility as well as anesthesia, then the cost in Manhattan is not high. Patient's often forget that any procedure requires the use of expensive medical supplies, ideally a state certified operating room, use of anesthesia equipment as well as the cost of nursing and a board certified anesthesiologist. Trying to cut corners on any of these requirements puts you at great risk.
In my practice a pubic lift and liposuction usually costs between $4,000 and $6,000, which include the surgery, anesthesia, facility fee, and all pre- and post-operative appointments.
Thank you for asking about your mons pubis lift.
- Manhattan plastic surgery fees are among the highest in the country
- Plus your cost includes the operating room and anesthesiologist/nurse anesthetist.
- It does not seem high for the area - although it would be high for some other areas in the country.
- Always see a Board
Certified Plastic Surgeon.

A mons lift helps with dropping or ptosis of the mons area and will lead to a scar. Sometimes this can be incorporated into an excision C-section scar but it really depends how high or low the C-section scar is. Consultation with a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery is a great way to start.

I suggest seeing an expert and do not compromise your care for cost or distance. Liposuction with skin removal can give a very good result in this area. Best, Dr. Emer.
