The mons pubis or pubic region refers to the area in front of the pubic bone that lies above the external genitalia. For men and women with an overly prominent or drooping mons pubis, mons rejuvenation can correct these issues and give you back your confidence.

mons rejuvenationSome patients may have a prominent mons pubis due to excess fat accumulation in this area. Other patients may have ptosis or drooping of the area which may hide their genitalia and can also make hygiene problematic. A prominent mons region can be a source of embarrassment for many women and men. It can cause a bulge in certain clothing and also make them feel self-conscious during sexual intercourse. This can lead to low self-esteem and loss of libido. It can be a frustrating problem for patients because many doctors do not adequately address this area during a consultation.

Before & After Photos

During your consultation, Bethesda plastic surgeon, Dr. Michaels, will listen to your concerns and individualize a treatment plan that will achieve your goals. If you have only excess fat in the area with minimal skin redundancy, liposuction alone can correct the problem. For many patients, there is skin excess which requires lifting and thinning of the mons pubis to achieve optimal contour. Mons rejuvenation is often performed in conjunction with other abdominal contouring procedures, but can be performed as an isolated procedure. In addition to correction of the mons, female patients may also need a labiaplasty to achieve the optimal aesthetic appearance and contour. These procedures can be safely combined.
