Mons Pubis Reduction: What You Need to Know

The mons pubis is the mass of fatty tissue located over the pubic bones and is typically more noticeable in women. 

Due to weight gain, genetics, aging, or after childbirth, the pubic region may become thick or lumpy, making it difficult to wear tight clothing. Removing fat from the mons pubis with a surgical procedure aims to reduce the size of any bulges to sculpt a smooth, balanced pelvic region. Patients opting for advanced techniques can have their results customized depending on the extent of fat removal required to deliver the desired result.

Who's A Good Candidate For Pubic Fat Removal?

You are a good candidate for this surgery if:

  1. Your weight is stable.
  2. You have an unwanted fat pocket or bulge on your pubic area.
  3. You are healthy and over the age of 18 
  4. You are otherwise healthy and do not suffer from any severe illness or medical condition that could interfere with healing.
  5. You have a positive attitude and a clear and realistic idea of what you want to achieve with the procedure.
  6. You are willing to live a healthy lifestyle so that the procedure results are permanent.

The best way to determine your eligibility for a pubic reduction is to schedule an appointment with a qualified surgeon.

Mons Pubis Reduction: How the Procedure Works

Pubic fat removal is a surgical procedure that reduces the layer of fat above the genitals in both men and women. 

Mons pubis reduction can be performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation, depending on the procedure's extent and the technology's sophistication. Local anesthesia with sedation is for cases where a small amount of tissue must be removed. General anesthesia is required if this procedure is combined with another invasive procedure, such as gastric surgery or a public lift.

During a lift procedure, a horizontal incision is made in the upper pubic region. The area's skin is tightened by lifting and strengthening the underlying muscles. The surgeon removes the excess skin and pulls it into a new position. Finally, the incision is closed with sutures and skin glue. 

With advanced pubic fat removal techniques like AirSculpt®, significant amounts of fat can be removed with patients fully awake. Skin tightening options are available for patients seeking a lifted look without undergoing a more invasive treatment.


Most patients can return to work a week after fully invasive surgery, like a pubic lift or traditional liposuction. Downtime after minimally invasive Pubic AirSculpt®, however, lasts just one to two days.

Some swelling may occur, and discomfort will be controlled with pain medication prescribed by your surgeon. Swelling will subside within a few weeks, but it may take a couple of months to dissipate completely. 

Patients should avoid strenuous exercise or activities for two weeks after AirSculpt® or roughly four to six weeks after traditional liposuction. Patients should wear a compression garment for two to three weeks after surgery to facilitate healing and promote better results.

Possible Complications

  • Complications of pubic reduction surgery may include the following:
  • Pain
  • Normal bleeding.
  • Inflammation
  • Infection
  • Normal discharge
  • Unsatisfactory results

AirSculpt® Permanently Removes Pubic Fat

Elite Body Sculpture is the exclusive provider of patented AirSculpt® technology, which has revamped how cosmetic fat removal procedures are performed by allowing for safer and more quality results.

Pubic AirSculpt® doesn't use scalpels, needles, stitches, or general anesthesia, which reduces the risks of invasive surgical techniques associated with traditional surgery.

Patients remain fully awake and enjoy the ability to talk with their surgeon or a friend throughout their treatment. As mentioned above, the healing process following this mons pubis reduction is simple, as the freckle-sized entry points heal without stitches. Patients return to their daily routines within one to two days, as AirSculpt® technology allows for a much gentler removal of pubic fat.
