Mons Pubis Lipo Surgeon: Dr. Jugenburg
Creating A More Appealing Mons Pubis Through Liposuction
Now that clothing styles are more revealing, women are becoming more conscious of how their pubic area, or mons, appears through the clothing. This is causing many women to seek treatment to reduce its size. Whether from a congenital cause or due to excessive weight gain, the pubic area can become fatty and make some women self-conscious and uncomfortable when wearing fitted clothing. Another cause could be from abdominoplasty or liposuction of the abdomen. Once the abdominal area is flatter, the pubic area simply sticks out more, causing a protruding mons. Fortunately, it can be treated via liposuction to improve its shape and size.
Liposuction of the mons pubis is a relatively straightforward procedure that can produce some dramatic results. The only caveat is that the skin should have good elasticity, because liposuction of the mons pubis can make loose skin even looser once the fat is removed. If the pubic area was big enough to stretch out the skin, the skin will droop, and liposuction won’t be enough. In this case, a monsplasty, or pubic lift, is a better option. This procedure removes extra skin and excess fat, reducing the bulging area and providing a lift as well.
Are You A Candidate for Mons Liposuction?
For women (as well as some men) who find the puffy, protruding mons area disconcerting, liposuction can be the procedure of choice. Good candidates for mons pubis reduction include patients who have:
- Unwanted fullness or protruding of the mons.
- Focal overhanging the mons area.
- Excess skin of the mons.
- Excess drooping of the mons.
You should also be in good health, and have good skin elasticity. The best way to determine if you are a candidate for mons pubis liposuction is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Jugenburg.

How the Procedure is Performed
Liposuction is done either under local anesthesia with intravenous sedation or under general anesthesia. Dr. Jugenburg will discuss this with you and recommend what is best for your individual situation.
Several small incisions are made, often not even requiring a suture to close them. For liposuction of the mons, the incisions are usually hidden in the groin crease. A small cannula is inserted into the incision, and fat is suctioned out. If needed, drains are placed in the incisions to help reduce swelling.
The Recovery Process
Most patients return to work one week after the surgery. There will be some swelling, and the discomfort will be controlled by the pain medication prescribed by Dr. Jugenburg. Swelling usually improves over 3 weeks, but it may take several months to completely resolve. You should avoid strenuous exercise or activity for 6 weeks following your surgery. Patients wear a support or compression garment for 2-3 weeks following the procedure.
