What is Monsplasty?

The mons is the fatty and fleshy area that lies just over the pubic bone as a protective tissue. An overly large, fleshy, or bulging mons pubis area can lead to self-consciousness and discomfort. Women can have a bulging mons pubis because of age, genetic predisposition, weight fluctuations, hormonal changes, pregnancy, or other factors. Regardless of the reason, if you’re self-conscious about its appearance, you can opt for a monsplasty. A monsplasty is a minimally invasive procedure that removes the excess skin or fat tissues to improve the mons pubis’ general appearance.

You’re a Candidate for Monsplasty if You…

  • Are uncomfortable with the size or appearance of the mons pubis.
  • Are getting work done around the vulva and vagina and would like to include the mons pubis in your cosmetic procedure.
  • Have an excessively sagging mom pubis because of recent weight fluctuations or pregnancy.
  • Want to lift and tighten the region to reverse the effects of age and childbirth.

Dr. Bonni’s Monsplasty Procedure

Monsplasty is a minimally invasive and outpatient procedure performed under local anesthesia or general anesthesia. Local anesthesia with sedation allows you to stay awake, but you don’t feel any pain or anxieties. General anesthesia puts you into a deep sleep. Dr. Bonni will determine the ideal anesthesia usage based on the amount of work necessary, i.e., the amount of skin and fat tissues that need to be removed.

During the monsplasty procedure, Dr. Bonni makes a small incision below the navel and above the mons pubis. He inserts a small tube-like device in the area to suction away the unwanted fat tissues via liposuction. The excess skin tissues are trimmed away, and the underlying muscles are raised and tightened to create a tighter and more sculpted appearance. Finally, the incisions are closed with dissolvable sutures.

Recovering from Your Monsplasty

Most patients recover from a monsplasty procedure in 3 to 7 days. You can expect mild swelling, discomfort, and bruising for a few days, but the pain is manageable. You should minimize physical activities for at least three weeks, and you must avoid sexual intercourse for three to six weeks. You must consult with the surgeon at every stage of the recovery process.

Risks of Monsplasty

  • Infection
  • Scarring
  • Blood clots
  • Hematoma
  • Discoloration
  • Pus around the incisions
  • Bad reaction to anesthesia

While monsplasty is a safe procedure, all surgeries carry a small risk of infections. If you notice discoloration, persistent swelling, or abnormal pus around the incisions, you must contact the surgeon immediately. However, Dr. Bonni reviews your health history, curates the treatment plan accordingly, and takes all necessary precautions to ensure you don’t have any harsh side effects or complications.
