What is Monsplasty?
Monsplasty is a surgical procedure used to reduce and raise the Mons Pubis. Monsplasty is perfomed for both cosmetic and functional reasons to return the mons pubis to its original position.
Are You A Good Candidate For Monsplasty?
The pubic mons often becomes too large with fat gain or pregnancy. After significant weight reduction, childbirth, or normal aging, the mons pubis can loose its own connective tissue attachments and sag.
When severe, this can interfere with getting garments to fit, urination flow, or even sexual relations.
Some women struggle with a bulge of excess fat and skin in the mons, the top part of the hair-bearing part of their vulva.
The bulge can result in women feeling too embarrassed to put on a swimsuit or tight trousers.
What Does a Monsplasty Do?
The purpose of a monsplasty is to reduce the amount of fatty tissue or skin, based upon the primary source of the bulge.
Anesthesia for a Monsplasty
Depending upon the amount of tissue to be removed, local anesthesia with oral sedation can be used for some processes, but general anesthesia can be preferable others.
occasionally the volume of skin removed may be broad, while for some, liposuction is enough.
What’re the Risks of a Monsplasty?
In case things go south you can expect: bleeding, hematoma, infection and scarring.
Recovering from a Monsplasty
Recovery takes about a week, with physical exercise constraints for two to fourteen days, based upon the extensiveness of the process. If skin has been removed, a drain or 2 can be put, with removal typically scheduled within the first day or two.
Results of a Monsplasty
This process results in a lower profile mons that generally jobs less in clothing. In some patients with a mons that hangs, removal of excess skin can result in less hanging.
The usual cost for Monsplasty ranges from $3000 – $7700 with an average cost of $5800 in the United States. Costs vary by the complexity of the procedure, geographic region, and the surgeon performing the procedure.
