Many women struggle with extra skin and fat in the small, triangular region between the hip bones and above the genitalia, known as the mon pubis. Whether excess skin develops due to pregnancy, hormones, or genetics, having a protruding mons pubis can take a negative toll on one’s mental health. It can create an unwanted bulge when wearing tight clothing or a swimsuit. An overdeveloped and low mons pubis can be a significant source of embarrassment and low self-esteem.

However, a mons pubis lift can help decrease the extra skin and fatty tissue around this region and transform the lives of many patients. At Allure Esthetic, Dr. Javad Sajan understands the importance of gaining confidence in one's self. He and his staff work to provide the best mons pubis lift in Seattle.

What Is A Mons Pubis Lift?

A mons pubis lift, or monsplasty is a surgical procedure that removes sagging skin from the mons pubis and provides a flat, contoured shape to the lower pelvic region. The lower pubic region collects fat and skin for various reasons due to the pocket-like nature of the mons.

A monsplasty creates a slim, proportionate, contoured lower pubis, allowing patients to have a defined shape. Many patients combine a mons pubis lift with a tummy tuck to see optimal results.

What Causes An Overdeveloped Mons Pubis?

Fat and skin can overdevelop in the mons pubis region for many reasons. Some patients are genetically inclined, while factors like pregnancy, c-sections, or weight fluctuation can create a “pooch” appearance in the mons. Some common factors include:

  • Genes: Many are genetically inclined to store fat in their lower pubic area. Unfortunately, genetics often do not respond to diet or exercise, making the mons pubis a stubborn cosmetic concern.
  • Cesarian: Women who undergo a C-section can develop a pooch in their lower pelvis, as one or more cesarians can create a bulge near the scar.
  • Pregnancy: Pregnancy hormones and childbearing can create a descended protrusion in the mons and create overhanging skin in the lower pubic area.
  • Weight Fluctuation: When patients gain weight, it’s typical for the mons pubis to lose elasticity and store fat.
  • Age: As you age, the skin around your lower pelvis can become lax and begin to sag.
  • Stress: Constant stress can increase cortisol levels, which can harbor fat in the mons pubis.

Regardless of the reason for an overdeveloped mons pubis, it can be a complex area to change naturally. Additionally, excess skin does not respond to diet or exercise. A mons pubis lift Seattle can create stunning results for those struggling to reshape their lower pubic region.

Mons Pubis Lift Procedure

Before undergoing a mons pubis lift Seattle, you will attend an in-depth consultation with Dr. Sajan. This consultation is essential for a few reasons, including:

  • Determining patient safety
  • Review medical history and past struggles with the lower pubic region
  • Provides an understanding of the patient's goals and needs
  • Allows Dr. Sajan to determine the best surgical method for the patient’s needs
  • Allows Dr. Sajan to create a plan that suits the individual patient

Dr. Sajan will also provide a list of pre and post-operative instructions to ensure the surgery is successful and heals correctly.

Mons Pubis Lift Surgery

During a monsplasty, a few methods can be used to eliminate unwanted skin or fat. The best method for you will be determined during a consultation. However, these are how the mons pubis can be lifted and restored to a flatter shape. Before the procedure, the patient will be placed under anesthesia to ensure comfort and easy surgery.

Ultrasonic Assisted Mons Pubic Liposuction

Mons pubic lift Seattle patients who require fat removal may only need ultrasonic Liposuction to achieve desired results. During a monsplasty liposuction, small incisions are created around the lower pubic region. Dr. Sajan uses ultrasonic probes to deliver heat and disrupt the fat in the mons area. Dr. Sajan believes this step is essential to liposuction as it helps tighten the skin, can decrease bleeding, and allows smoother and better removal of the fat. After the ultrasonic step, Dr. Sajan uses specialized power-assisted cannulas to suction fat from the area and create a flatter contour.

Mons Pubic Skin Removal

Sometimes, patients require liposuction and skin excision to create optimal results. An incision is created along the lower bikini area for the skin excision. The deeper tissue of the mons region is dissected and sutured to a more lifted position. Dr. Sajan then removes excess skin and tightens the remaining skin through this incision.

The entire surgery lasts around one to two hours, depending on the extent of the surgical methods used.

Mons Pubis Lift Recovery

The recovery from a monsplasty surgery is a relatively straightforward process. During the first initial days, some swelling and bruising may occur. This is also the time patients may feel the most discomfort. Dr. Sajan will provide a list of instructions, including:

  • Take all prescribed medication for discomfort and infection
  • Plan to take a week off of work to rest
  • Do not engage in strenuous activity for at least two weeks or until cleared
  • Wait at least six weeks before returning to regular activity

With the right provider, a mons pubis lift can be an effective and incredible surgery that allows patients to transform their confidence and lives.
