Monsplasty (Pubic Lift)
The upper pubic region below the lower abdomen is called the mons pubis, an area that can become stretched and lax after weight gain and loss, especially in women. After multiple pregnancies or a substantial weight loss, some women have excess skin and tissue in this area that can interfere with how clothing fits, as well as become a hindrance for urination and sexual interactions. Dr. John Anastasatos at Los Angeles Plastic Surgery offers monsplasty, or a pubic lift, that can address excess skin on the mons pubis, available at our clinic in Beverly Hills.
A tummy tuck or other type of abdominoplasty can address excess skin and laxity in the abdomen after pregnancy or weight loss, but it doesn’t include the mons pubis area. To remove excess skin and tighten this area, a separate procedure is required. Monsplasty is commonly completed with a tummy tuck or more extensive FDL abdominoplasty to remove this area of excess skin to create a smoother pubis region.
Benefits of Mons Pubis Rejuvenation
The pubic lift surgery has several benefits for patients that have excess skin and tissue in the lower pelvic region. When completed with abdominoplasty, it completes the new appearance of a flatter, firmer front after weight loss. Beyond appearance, monsplasty can reduce urination and sexual function issues that can be caused by excess skin and fat on the mons pubis. Some women may have vaginoplasty or labiaplasty combined with a monsplasty to tighten and rejuvenate the pubis area.
After excessive weight loss, extra skin on the lower abdomen and mons pubis can still remain, impacting a woman’s appearance and causing functional issues.
