Monsplasty

What You Need to Know about Monsplasty (Pubic Lift)

Overview

In a monsplasty, both extra skin and excess fat are surgically removed, reducing the bulge and giving the area a lift as well.

The Ideal Candidate

The mons is the area between the pubic bone and the labia, or the pubic area. Some patients feel the area is too full or droopy with age or change in weight.

Target Areas

Mons

Weight gain, aging, and genetics can all cause the Mons Pubis to become enlarged to the point where it becomes discouraging and interferes with normal vaginal function. Many women who have an overly large Mons Pubis find shopping for clothes very difficult as the bulge of excess skin can show through certain types of clothing. Urination and sexual intercourse can become difficult, as well. Dr. Sturm is able to carefully reduce the sagging and puffy skin of the Mons Pubis and tighten the underlying muscles and tissues. This leaves women with a more aesthetically pleasing appearance and improved vaginal function.

Exploring Options with Monsplasty

Every patient will start with a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Sturm at Find A Better You. During this consultation Dr. Sturm will take adequate time to get to know the patient, discuss the problems she is experiencing, and find out what her ideal outcomes are for monsplasty.

Dr. Sturm will also complete a physical examination of the area of each patient during their initial consultation and photos of the area. During this time, he will determine the degree of excess skin and fat that needs to be removed during the monsplasty procedure. He will also ensure each patient communicates realistic expectations for what can be accomplished through surgery.

If, after the initial consultation, the patient and Dr. Sturm will determine if monsplasty is the best option for the patient’s problem area, he will review the monsplasty procedure and answer any questions the patient may have.

What to Expect with Monsplasty

Before surgery day, Dr. Sturm’s monsplasty patients will come to Find A Better You for a pre-operative appointment during which our staff will answer any additional questions the patient may have about the procedure. Patients will also be sent home with prescriptions and information to encourage a safe and comfortable recovery. Dr. Sturm performs monsplasty procedures under general anesthesia. The surgery will take about 1-1.5 hours depending on the degree of repair required to adequately lift and tighten the Mons Pubis.

After general anesthesia has been administered, Dr. Sturm will begin the monsplasty surgery. He will:

  • Make an incision to remove excess fat from the Pubic Mons, using liposuction 

  • Sculpt the area by tightening Skin with radio frequency

The monsplasty procedure can be combined with other cosmetic vaginal procedures such as a labiaplasty to further improve function and appearance.

Recovering From Monsplasty

Most monsplasty patients should plan to take about one week off of work and social activities in order to heal well. Physical activity should be restricted for 6 weeks. It is likely that drainage could last for a few days in order to remove excess fluid from the area. A female staff member will always be in the room at all times with Dr. Sturm.
