Atlanta Monsplasty by Dr. Amy Alderman

The delicate triangle area above a woman’s genitalia is precious. It is also an area that may affect your confidence when wearing feminine clothing like lingerie, bathing suits, and yoga pants.

Women who find it embarrassing to have a bulge in their pubic area may opt to get an abdominoplasty. Monsplasty, or a pubic lift, aims to correct excess fat and sagging skin on the pubic mound, not repaired by a tummy tuck. It helps reduce and tighten the mons pubis and plays cosmetic and functional roles.

Many patients choose to combine monsplasty with a lower body lift, abdominoplasty, or a mommy makeover. Performing it concurrently with labiaplasty can rejuvenate a woman’s entire pubic region. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Amy Alderman skillfully tightens tissue and reduces sagging skin to improve normal function and appearance.

Dr. Alderman loves to help patients through monsplasty treatment in Atlanta and the Buckhead area. You can feel confident knowing that her all-female staff is here to meet your needs with respect and concern. Call our office at (470) 381-3610 or schedule a consultation.

Atlanta Monsplasty: What is It?

Monsplasty is a surgical procedure that aims to reduce a bulging pubic region. It removes excess skin and fatty tissue from the pad over the pubic bone. This area is called the mons pubis, which is where the operation gets its name. Some call it a pubic lift for women.

The mons pubis may have become enlarged due to fat accumulation or loose overlying skin. Monsplasty will create a flatter, firmer presence in this area.

Monsplasty Benefits

Most women are thrilled with their Atlanta monsplasty results. Once they have achieved the aesthetic benefits of a smoother, flatter pubic area, they feel more confident in the clothing they choose to wear. The procedure:

Is Safe and Effective

Dr. Alderman loves to perform monsplasty because it is an effective and safe cosmetic procedure that helps women feel better about themselves. It removes excess fat and sagging skin to elevate the mons pubis to a natural position.

Restores Function

Our Atlanta monsplasty restores regular urinary function by removing excess skin and fat.

Enhances Appearance

This operation greatly improves the mons pubic area appearance. If you choose to combine it with a body lift or tummy tuck, you can realize your ideal shape.

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.

Buckhead Monsplasty Candidates

There are multiple procedures to treat the mons, including direct excision of excess fat or skin of the mons, liposuction, and a mons lift. Many women struggle with excess tissue and skin in the mons area after pregnancy or weight loss. The fear is the pubic mound looks too masculine when wearing thin or revealing clothing.

Common reasons to have monsplasty:

  • An overhanging pubic area north of the vagina
  • Unwanted mons bulge
  • Drooping skin in the mons area
  • Sagging mons skin

If no excess skin needs extraction, liposuction can treat the area.

The Buckhead Monsplasty Procedure

The operation may involve liposuction, re-suspension with sutures, and a direct wedge incision. When performing monsplasty as a stand-alone procedure, Dr. Alderman may resect excess skin by creating an incision within the mons itself or at the junction of the lower abdomen. This incision will allow suture placement during the repositioning for the mons. 

Direct excision is best performed under general anesthesia. Liposuction is possible under local anesthesia. Most women go home the same day of surgery. You’ll have a compression garment after surgery. We ask that you avoid strenuous activity or heavy lifting for at least two weeks during recovery. 

Monsplasty Recovery

Once the anesthesia has worn off, Dr. Alderman will examine you to ensure there are no complications. Afterward, we’ll send you home. Plan to have a responsible adult with you to drive you.

You may have some discomfort in the mons pubis region or the lower abdomen after surgery. You’ll notice mild swelling and bruising that will typically last two to three weeks.

Monsplasty recovery is usually quick and uneventful. Your recovery timeline will look something like this.

Recovery Timeline

Dr. Alderman encourages starting light activity a day or two after the operation, like slow-paced walks. One week after the procedure, you can return to work unless your job expects you to do strenuous labor.

  • A week after surgery, most women return to work.
  • After three weeks, you may begin bathing if your incision is well healed.
  • You can begin participating in exercise and other physical activities after four to six weeks.

You’ll notice the results of your monsplasty immediately after surgery. By week six, you’ll realize full results. The changes are permanent, but weight gain can trigger excess fat deposition and a bulging pubic pad.

FAQs for Atlanta Monsplasty

Insurance does not cover most cosmetic procedures. If you are having surgery for legitimate medical concerns, your health insurance provider may cover it. If you need help fitting cosmetic surgery within your budget, we offer financing for all our aesthetic procedures.

Monsplasty surgery will eliminate a C-section scar along with any underlying scar tissue.  Dr. Alderman will confer with you about incision length and location. She encourages her patients to bring in their undergarments or a bathing suit to ensure any scarring is well hidden.

The surgery can help heighten your sexual satisfaction by lowering the mound and lessening sagging skin, both of which can interfere with a healthy and satisfying sex life. Women also report they are more confident in their appearance.

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.
