Monsoplasty is analogous to abdominoplasty for abdomen and is the procedure to reduce the bulging and tighten the skin with tissue in the area of mons above the vulva. It is also known as pubic lift surgery. It can be performed in combination with tummy tuck surgery, a body lift, or a Mommy Makeover to achieve maximum satisfaction, or at the same time as labiaplasty and vaginoplasty to rejuvenate the entire female pubic region.
Mons is the upper hair bearing part of the vulva which contains some amount of underlying fat also.
This area overlies pubic symphysis and protects the underlying bones and joints from any trauma.
Excessive obesity, aging, fluctuations in weight, childbirth and pregnancy can result in sagging of mons pubis area. Such females find extra pockets of fat under the mons which gives an erratic shape to their body. This often gives an aesthetically displeasing look and interfere in everyday activity.
Even females who have undergone liposuction, still find lose bulge of tissue hanging just above the perineum which gives a bulging look in tight pants, yoga attire, a swim wear or a lingerie.
It becomes quite embarrassing for them and they struggle everyday to hide it.
Surgically correcting this area gives them freedom to choose a new range of clothing.
Females can even have problem in having sex and passing urine.
They often find it difficult to reach their vulva due to this bulge at mons and often find hair removal at vulva difficult.
All these conditions often result in low self confidence and self esteem.
