VASER Liposuction | Mons Pubis Fat
The mons pubis, also known as the pubic area or mons, is the fatty tissue located in the groin and above the pubic bone. The fat in this area can reach a size that makes some women self-conscious and uncomfortable while wearing tight-fitting clothing such as leggings, skinny jeans, swimsuits, underwear, and tight dresses. It can negatively impact your self-esteem and confidence. People with an enlarged mons pubis avoid situations that could highlight the presence of the fatty bulge.
People come to Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic Dublin who are self-conscious about undesired fullness in the groin. Removal of the fatty tissue of the mons pubis is a common liposuction procedure. It is most often requested by women; however, some men also have the procedure.
A tendency to have more fat in this area can be a genetically predetermined condition, something you are born with. Some people can be of normal weight, or even be underweight, and have a noticeable mons pubis due to a genetic disposition for fat collection in this area.
Enlarged mons pubis can also happen due to weight gain. It is rare to find an overweight woman or man who does not store excess fat in the pubic area.
If you have had liposuction of the abdomen or a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) surgery to flatten your abdomen, you may begin to notice your pubic region fat more visible even though there has been no physical change to the pubic area size. Flattening the abdomen can make the pubic area look as if it is sticking out more.
VASER liposuction of the mons pubis is a quick procedure that is done under local anaesthesia to achieve dramatic results, especially if the skin has good elasticity. The first step in the VASER liposuction procedure is numbing the mons area with physiological solution containing local anaesthesia. The VASER then directs gentle ultrasound energy to disrupt the loosed the fat deposit before gentle suctioning it out with a small cannula. VASER energy gently heats the skin encouraging it to contract.
Fortunately, mons pubis liposuction with VASER is an effective solution.
Even though interest in this type of liposuction is more common among women, men can have excess fat in the mons pubis, too. The amount of fat can be so great that it makes the penis appear smaller than it actually is, which can be a problem for some men. Treatment with VASER liposuction can successfully be done in men as well.
After liposuction of the mons pubis, patients expect swelling in the recovery period. This swelling can extend down to the labia in women and the scrotum in men. Bruising is also not uncommon. Bruising usually resolves after two to three weeks. Swelling can take longer to resolve, usually by six weeks. Continued improvement in swelling can continue for up to three to four months after VASER liposuction.

As is the case with any surgery, complications are possible after a mons pubis liposuction. Hematoma, seroma, delayed wound healing, skin necrosis, and wound infection are some of the possible complications that can occur after surgery to contour the pubic area. Complications are very uncommon with VASER liposuction.
Results & Recovery
Overall, the results of a mons pubis vaser liposuction procedure is considered permanent as long as you maintain your weight and fitness level. With VASER Lipo, we can produce significant results, without the pain and long recovery of typical liposuction treatments. Most patients report superior results in one session, and faster recovery than traditional liposuction.
After the procedure, the patient wears a compression garment, much like spanks for a couple of weeks. Mild discomfort and bruising may last up to three weeks and swelling may last for two weeks to four weeks. Patients are advised to mobilise early and return to normal daily activity within a couple of days. In general the full effect of liposuction gets better over-time and is seen four months after the procedure is performed.
