Pubic Lift – Monsplasty
The accumulation of fatty deposits, inelastic skin, and/or loose muscles on and around the Mons Pubis—the pubic region—is commonly referred to as FUPA, which stands for “fatty upper pubic area.” Many patients, both men and women, who experience this condition may feel considerable embarrassment or feel limited in the types of activities they can enjoy as a result. Dr. Charles Perry, our experienced plastic surgeon, appreciates the sensitive nature of this common aesthetic concern, and he strives to provide compassionate care and an effective treatment plan that addresses the varied symptoms that typically accompany it.
What is a Pubic Lift?
Monsplasty, also called a Pubic Lift, is a highly customizable procedure that can be tailored to suit the unique anatomical needs and expressed goals of each person. In some cases, liposuction of the region may be all that is required to achieve desired results. For other individuals, a combination of approaches may better serve their interests, such as mini abdominoplasty, labiaplasty, thigh lift, and/or liposuction. Many of our female patients include monsplasty in their mommy makeover plans. As there are a multitude of factors that can contribute to the development of this condition, including having children, weight gain and loss, and genetic predisposition, there are numerous methods used to treat the diverse indicators.
Pubic Lift for Men
For our male patients, it is important to note that a fatty upper pubic area can potentially lead to a buried penis. Excess tissue and skin can often create a protrusion in the pubic region, which may diminish the appearance of penile length. Reducing the deposits of fat can help to reveal the full extent of the shaft, as well as increase the individual’s sense of confidence.
When considering a Pubic Lift, patients should seek out a board-certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience performing monsplasty. Dr. Perry recommends patients try conservative approaches first, such as diet and exercise changes, as well as stress relief practices, prior to undergoing a surgical procedure. During the initial consultation, he will be happy to help develop a customized, multidisciplinary treatment plan designed to address any unwanted conditions.
