What Is Monsplasty Surgery?
As with all areas of a woman’s body, the hair-bearing mound of fatty tissue above the convalescence of the outer lips is susceptible to aging. This area, known as the mons pubis, loses fullness as women age. To help restore the appearance of the pubic mound, monsplasty surgery, also known as a mons pubis reduction, may be recommended. Monsplasty surgery involves a fat grafting technique to help improve the appearance of this area, restoring volume and fullness. In other cases, the fullness in this area is exaggerated and liposuction and/or skin excision may be performed in order to restore a more natural look. The monsplasty surgery/mons pubis reduction cost starts at $3,000. The final cost will vary based on what treatment techniques are used to enhance the pubic mound. If you are looking for ways to help perfect your mons pubis area, speak with our experienced staff at Miami Plastic Surgery today.
What Does Monsplasty Surgery Involve?
- Fat grafting is used to plump up a deflated mons pubis, creating the perfect curve.
- During the procedure, autologous fat is extracted by liposuction from areas that have excess fat tissue such as the abdomen, hips, or thighs. The fat is purified and then injected into the volume-deficient pubic mound. Unlike artificial fillers, fat grafting is considered a safer method of restoring volume.
- Performed under local anesthesia, this walk-in-walk-out treatment takes about two hours and requires minimal downtime.
- You will be monitored for an hour after the procedure before you can go home. Any pain you experience will be managed by prescribed painkillers.
- Have someone drive you home and stay with you overnight. Take the opportunity to rest.
- Compression garments may be used to reduce swelling.
- You may shower one day after labiaplasty surgery with a watertight dressing over the incision, with no baths or swimming until healing of the incision is complete.
- Any visible swelling should improve after three weeks.
- Physical activity should be restricted for two to six weeks.
- You may return to work the week after the surgery, depending on your occupation and your pain level.
