Frequently Asked Questions

What is the mons pubis?

 The term mons pubis comes from Latin for “pubic mound”, and mons Venus or mons veneris is derived from Latin for “mound of Venus”.  Anatomically, it refers to the fleshy mound of tissue overlying the pubic bone in a female.

What is a "FUPA"?

FUPA is a crass slang acronym, not a real medical term. It refers to a prominent mons pubis, visible through clothing.

My mons pubis is too large, what can I do about it?

If your mons pubis is larger or “puffier” than you like, and is unsightly in tight clothing, you may be a candidate for a mons pubis reduction procedure.  Mons pubis reduction can be done with liposuction, a mons pubis lift, or both.

What is mons pubis lipo?

The mons pubis area is composed mostly of fat.  Liposuction of the mons pubis is a minimally invasive procedure in which the fat is suctioned from the mons pubis area making it flatter and less prominent.  At FemSculpt, our surgeons use tumescent liposuction, SmartLipo, or Vaser Liposuction to reduce the mons pubis through tiny incisions.

What is a mons lift?

The costs for perineoplasty vary widely and will depend on the extent of the repair required. The average range for this procedure in Chicago is $2500-$6000. At FemSculpt we offer competitive pricing as well as many financing options to assist patients financially.

What are the benefits of a mons lift?

The mons pubis area is composed mostly of fat.  Liposuction of the mons pubis is a minimally invasive procedure in which the fat is suctioned from the mons pubis area making it flatter and less prominent.  At FemSculpt, our surgeons use tumescent liposuction, SmartLipo, or Vaser Liposuction to reduce the mons pubis through tiny incisions.

What is recovery for a mons reduction or lift?

Recovery from a mons procedure should be less than 1 week.  There is usually swelling and bruising of the area that can last for several weeks, but most patients are able to return to work in 3-4 days.  

Is mons reduction painful?

The discomfort and swelling of mons liposuctions is similar to other liposuction procedures.  Most patients are sore and bruised for 1-2 weeks but most don’t require more than Tylenol.  With a mons lift, the recovery is similar to recovery from a C-Section scar.

Are there drains with a mons reduction?

Drains may be used in mons lift and when lipo of the mons is aggressive.  Your surgeon will determine if a drain is needed after a mons procedure.  Drains usually stay in for only 3-4 days if needed.

What is anesthesia for a mons reduction?

Although mons reduction can be done under local anesthetic, it is generally recommended to be sedated, especially if the reduction is extensive or combined with other procedures like tummy tuck or labiaplasty.

How much does mons pubis reduction cost?

Mons pubis reduction surgery can range from $3,000-$7,000 depending on the extent of the procedure, the type of anesthetic used, or if a lift or skin resection is required.
