When most people think of liposuction, they associate the procedure with the arms, legs, or belly. However, those aren’t the only areas where a woman may feel that she would look more aesthetically pleasing if fat were removed. At the Canadian Plastic Surgery Centre in Toronto, we increasingly receive requests for mons pubis liposuction.
This procedure removes fat from the mons area, flattening the area in women who have excess fat deposits in their mons. This procedure is particularly popular with women who wear revealing clothing, bathing suits, or workout gear. It also helps increase the enjoyment of some women during sexual intercourse, by decreasing their discomfort with the way they look unclothed.
A mons pubis liposuction is a rather simple procedure. The patient is placed under sedation, either general or local, depending on the exact details of the procedure and the medical history of the patient. After the patient is sedated, Dr. Chivers will make small incisions near the mons and use those entry points to suction fat out of the mons area.
This procedure uses such small incisions that sometimes sutures aren’t even required at the end of the procedure. Furthermore, between the small size of the incisions and the location of the incisions (in the crease of the groin), patients rarely experience any scarring from the procedure.
Like with every other surgical procedure, candidates for mons pubis liposuction are woman who should be in relatively good health.
Furthermore, good candidates usually have one of the following conditions:
Depending on the exact conditions you are attempting to correct, a mons pubis liposuction may not be the correct procedure or may be best combined with other procedures, like a vaginoplasty. Dr. Chivers will give you a thorough examination on your initial consultation to determine exactly which procedures will best provide the results you are looking for.
The recovery process for a mons pubis liposuction is reasonably quick and easy. Due to the liposuction procedure, you will experience swelling and bruising in your mons for a few days and will want to avoid almost all activity, especially walking, until that clears. Most patients are able to engage in light activities after roughly a week, including being able to return to work.
You should wait a few weeks before engaging in any type of strenuous activities, especially workouts like running or riding a bicycle. If you normally engage in these type of activities regularly, Dr. Chivers can give a precise schedule of when you can return to these type of aerobic activities. If you have any questions or concerns during the recovery process, the staff at the Canadian Plastic Surgery Centre is always available to provide any assistance you need and answer any questions you have.
If you are unhappy with the look or size of your mons, schedule a consultation for the best mons pubis liposuction procedure available in the Toronto area at the Canadian Plastic Surgery Centre. Dr. Chivers will answer any questions you have about the procedure and ensure that you are getting exactly the procedure that will best produce the surgical results you are looking for.
