What is a Mons Pubis Reduction & Lift (Monsplasty)?

The mons are located in the upper part of the female vulva and protect the pubic bone. A monsplasty procedure reduces the size of "bulging" mons by liposuctioning the excess fat. Excess skin may need to be removed in some cases. Additionally, we offer skin tightening by Renuvion Jplasma for added benefit.

The procedure is performed by a board-certified cosmetic surgeon under local or general anesthesia.

Women who undergo a mentoplasty see an immediate improvement and may also realize significant benefits to their psychological well-being due to a more positive body image.

You may be a good candidate for a monsplasty if you:

  • Have an enlarged or excess skin in this area due to aging or weight loss
  • Are you in good health

A mons pubis reduction may also be combined with other vaginal rejuvenation procedures, including labiaplasty, clitoral hood reduction, or vaginoplasty.
