A woman may have unsightly fat deposits in her pubic region, which causes a bulge in clothes. This deposit may have been present since birth or acquired with puberty or weight gain or loss.
Usually the fat can be eliminated or markedly improved by liposuction. However, aging or weight gain may cause the pubic and vaginal regions to descend, resulting in an aged appearance. These areas can be rejuvenated and lifted by excising excess skin above the pubic hair, removing excess fat in the pubic region, and stabilizing the pubic skin and tissue to the underlying muscle.
I recently published the first medical paper on the mons pubic lift procedure in the prestigious journal Aesthetic Surgery Journal. Many women have previously had a tummy tuck but still complain of the pubic bulge which is often worse after the abdominoplasty. This pubic lift may be combined with a tummy tuck. It is often combined with a labia majora reduction that I also published in that paper.
The pubic liposuction is a minor procedure that can be performed under general or local anesthesia. The pubic lift takes about 1 ½ hours under general anesthesia. It is not a major procedure but has dramatic effects on the woman’s self-esteem and appearance. She needs to stay in the Los Angeles area for about five days for the lift procedure.
