What is the Difference Between a Monsplasty and Labiaplasty?
There are several different types of cosmetic gynecological procedures that are gaining in popularity, and among them are the Labiaplasty and the Monsplasty. While both of these procedures are different, they do have one thing in common: they can help change the look of different parts of the labia and vulva, which can give you more confidence both in and out of the bedroom, in your favorite clothing, and while working out or exercising. Both of these procedures have their own goals and can help shape the way you look and feel about yourself. But what exactly are the differences between the two?
What is a Labiaplasty?
A Labiaplasty focuses on the area of the labia. Both the labia majora and the labia minora can be addressed in a labiaplasty, and many procedures, such as a monsplasty or a clitoral hood reduction, can be paired with this procedure in order to really change the appearance of the entire area.
What is a Monsplasty?
A Monsplasty is a procedure that reshapes the mons pubis area, or the area of fatty and fleshy tissue that protects the pubic bone. Sometimes the mon pubis area is bulging or has excess skin, which can make women feel self-conscious about it, especially if they are wearing tight clothing or during intimate moments. A monsplasty can actually change the amount of skin or reduce the fatty tissue present, which can give the area a more polished and desired look. This can help increase self-esteem both in and out of the bedroom!
Why Do Women Opt for a Monsplasty?
A monsplasty can be quite popular when paired with other procedures, such as a labiaplasty. It is also a great way to help reduce the skin and fatty tissue following childbirth or dramatic weight loss. Other women want to have their bodies look and feel the way they want and choose a procedure that can help them to achieve these goals, thus giving them the ability to feel better about themselves and their bodies.
How is a Monsplasty Performed?
Depending on how much skin or fatty tissue that is to be removed from the mons pubis area, the procedure can be done either under general anesthesia or local anesthesia. A small incision is made into the area, and then excess fatty tissue is removed, and the skin tightened up. This is an easy and safe procedure that is gaining in popularity, whether it is performed in combination with another procedure such as a labiaplasty or on its own.
