Between the lower abdomen and the genital area is the mons pubis. This transitional area commonly has fatty tissue and the pubic area, designed to protect the genitals. With weight gain and loss or aging, the mons pubis can change in appearance, resulting in sagging tissue. Monsplasty, or a pubic lift, is a body contouring plastic surgery designed to reshape the mons pubis. At Vantage Plastic Surgery, our double board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Aleksandr Shteynberg, offers pubic lift surgery at our clinics in NYC.
Both genders can experience stretching and sagging of the mons pubis, but women are the most likely to request monsplasty. When the mons pubis sags, it can become a functional and aesthetic concern. The tissue can droop into the genital area, interfering with urination and sexual activities. The extra skin or tissue can be unattractive and may be noticeable when wearing a swimsuit or some other clothing. Monsplasty can remove excess skin and tighten this area to improve both form and function of the pubic area.
Good Candidates for Monsplasty
Anyone who has excess skin or tissue in the pubic region that is causing aesthetic or functional issues can benefit from a pubic lift. This procedure is often combined with other midsection surgeries to address loose skin from weight loss or pregnancy. Monsplasty patients may also be receiving a tummy tuck, body lift or fleur-de-lis abdominoplasty – the monsplasty extends the tightening of the abdomen to the pubic area.
The goal of a pubic lift is to create a natural transition between the lower abdomen and genital area. Removing hanging skin or tissue through liposuction and lift surgery can improve the confidence of the patient during intimate moments and genital function. Dr. Shteynberg can discuss how monsplasty can be performed as a single procedure or in combination with other plastic surgery to transform the pubic area.
If you are concerned about the appearance or function of your upper genital area due to sagging skin or tissue on the mons pubis, a pubic lift, or mons rejuvenation procedure, may be right for you.
