What is a Monsplasty?
A monsplasty is a minimally invasive procedure that is designed and performed to change the appearance of a bulging mons pubis area. The mons is the area of fatty, fleshy tissue that covers and protects the pubic bone. A monsplasty can change the amount of this skin or fatty tissue present, offering a more desired appearance.
Reasons Women Want a Monsplasty
There are several reasons that women may find themselves wanting a monsplasty. Some women feel uncomfortable with the size of their mons pubis, and would like a reduction in size so that they can feel more confident with that part of their body. Other women may be planning on having a variety of work done to alter the appearance of the vulva and vagina, and may want to include the monsplasty in with their other procedures.
A monsplasty is also a great choice for women who have lost significant amounts of weight and would like to tighten up the skin on the mons area. Age and genetics are two more reasons that many women elect to have a monsplasty. It can essentially work like pubic liposuction or a pubic lift to create and shape the area you desire.
How is a Monsplasty Performed?
The monsplasty procedure is minimally invasive and is not a lengthy procedure. The procedure is done by using a form of mons pubis liposuction on that area to remove excess fatty tissue from the area, and then having the area trimmed of excess skin, sculpted, lifted, and tightened to create a more appealing and desirable appearance.
After the required anesthesia or sedation is given, a small incision is made right below the naval and the top of the mons pubis. The muscles are raised up and tightened, and excess skin is then removed, allowing the remaining skin to be pulled taut into its new and lifted position.
Is Anesthesia Required for a Monsplasty Procedure?
Yes, a monsplasty procedure is done either under general anesthesia or local anesthesia. Depending on the amount of excess fatty tissue and skin to be removed from the mons area, the doctor will decide if the desired look can be accomplished by using only local anesthesia, allowing you to remain awake and alert, or if general anesthesia would be a better choice.
What to Expect After the Procedure During Recovery
After a monsplasty procedure, the recovery time is generally short, lasting from 3 days to a week. The pain is typically minimal for a few days, although you can expect a dull ache or slight pain to be present. Swelling and slight bruising are common and not a cause for concern. Physical activity should remain light for up to three weeks after the procedure is done, or until it has healed and you are given clearance from the doctor. Sexual activities can usually be resumed between three and six weeks, depending on your doctor’s advice and how well you are feeling.
If you find abnormal pus, discoloration, pain, or swelling that does not subside, this can be an indicator of an infection at the incision site, and requires medical care immediately.
A mons pubis reduction is considered a permanent procedure, and the results are typically achieved in only a single treatment.
A typical monsplasty procedure offers minimal risks and is generally considered a safe procedure. However, like any other surgical procedure, a monsplasty does carry some risks, especially if you will be requiring general anesthesia. Risks of this procedure include:
- Adverse reaction to anesthesia
- Blood clots
With proper aftercare, some of these risks, such as infection and scarring, can be minimized or prevented entirely.
