Monsplasty in Atlanta from our All-Female Surgical Team

A monsplasty procedure is provided to lift, tighten, and flatten any excess tissue above the vagina and under the lower abdomen.  Women can have a genetic predisposition for fullness in the mons pubis, which can limit clothing flexibility, and make women feel self-conscious of a protrusion or fullness in this area. 

Dr. Alderman loves to help patients through monsplasty treatment in Atlanta and the Buckhead area. You can feel confident knowing that our all-female staff is here to meet your needs with respect and concern.

Why Choose a Pubic Lift?

Dr. Alderman knows she can make an enormous difference in patients’ quality of life through this procedure.  Fullness north of the vagina or mons pubis region can make women self-conscious while wearing certain clothing or even while being intimate.

If you’ve been concerned about fullness in your mons pubis since young adulthood, it can be difficult to feel confident as an adult; patients often hide behind full-coverage bathing suits and avoid wearing tight jeans; yoga pants are out of the question as well.  While many patients believe nothing can be done for this specific problem, it is absolutely fixable – and easily at that. In many cases treatment does not require significant surgical intervention and same-day, outpatient procedures can be performed.

Surgically addressing this area will give women a new freedom for clothes shopping and personal confidence.  For many patients, this procedure has changed their lives, and Dr. Alderman feels so lucky to have been able to help.

The Monsplasty Procedure with Dr. Alderman

Liposuction and skin excision alone or in combination are the best ways to correct unwanted fullness in the mons pubis.  When only liposuction is necessary, treatment and resulting scars are minimal.  During liposuction, a small tube is inserted through a minimal incision and fat accumulation of removed from the targeted area. As the mons pubis is a relatively small treatment site, this procedure can be completed quickly.

Other patients have a significant amount of skin excess and need the tissue reduced and tightened through a small scar that resembles a c-section incision.  Ultimately, the goal is tissue reduction and tightening of the mons pubis, allowing the patient more clothing flexibility and confidence.

Recovering from your Pubic Lift

The monsplasty with or without liposuction is an easily tolerated procedure and can be performed in an outpatient setting.  Most patients require pain medications for two to three days and can return to work after four to five days.  Patients can resume physical by the second or third week after surgery.  Swelling gradually improves and results are usually seen by six months after surgery.

The procedure does not require a drain.  A compression garment provides the needed support for the surgical area.  The mons pubis will be swollen for about two months, but most of the swelling is gone after two to three weeks. Patients should wait three to four weeks after surgery to resume sexual activity.  This will decrease the risk of added stress on the incision.

Results of your Pubic Lift

Patients are thrilled with the results!  If you work hard on maintaining a healthy and attractive physique, it can be hard to feel good about yourself with such a sensitive concern. After their procedure, patients can wear bathing suits, yoga pants, and lingerie with full and complete confidence. 

Dr. Alderman loves being a part of the patient’s journey and is just as excited as my patient when the final result is achieved.   There is nothing better than having her come for her final appointment rocking some tight designer jeans and seeing the big smile on her face.

Can a Previous C-section Scar be used for the Procedure?

Absolutely!  The old c-section scar will be removed along with any underlying scar tissue.  Dr. Alderman will discuss with you your desired scar location and length.  She encourages patients to bring in their bathing suit bottom or underwear so that she can make sure the scar is well hidden.

What If I Gain Weight or become Pregnant? Will the Area Enlarge Again?

Although everyone is different, your results will be relatively stable with pregnancy and weight gain.  Once the fat is removed from an area with liposuction, the fat will not regrow in that area with weight gain.  And with pregnancy, it is usually the upper abdominal tissue that becomes stretched, not the mons pubis.  For many women, fullness and extra skin in the mons pubis are related to genetics and very amenable to surgical correction with long-lasting results.
