Is it possible to get liposuction on my pubic area?

The area directly above my pubic region is disproportionately larger than the rest of my body. It’s literally been impossible to get rid of, even with regular diet and exercise. I’m at the point where I really want to make a change to the way I look. Is it possible to get liposuction on my pubic area? If so, I think it will greatly improve my confidence and self-esteem.

The area you’re referring to is known as the mons pubis. A prominent mons can be caused by the shape or position of your pubic bone, or it may be due to loose skin or excess fat. In some cases, as you have discovered yourself, it can be impossible to reduce the size of the mons pubis with non-surgical weight loss methods.

Thankfully, liposuction can safely be used on the mons pubis to remove stubborn deposits of fat. Pubic liposuction is often carried out as part of abdominal contouring, but it can also be done selectively as a standalone procedure. This type of cosmetic surgery is very popular and has a high satisfaction rate. As a general rule of thumb, you can expect to eliminate about half the fat from the target area.

As with any liposuction procedure, there are some potential risks associated with pubis liposuction, including bleeding, swelling, scarring, and numbness. While it’s important to be mindful of these risks, liposuction is widely considered to be a very safe procedure, and when performed by an experienced plastic surgeon there’s a good chance you’ll be able to achieve your cosmetic goals with few adverse side effects.

I think it’s also worth noting that although pubis liposuction can be very effective, it isn’t necessarily the right option for you. For instance, if your surgeon finds your enlarged mons pubis is due to the presence of excess skin rather than fat, he or she might recommend a tummy tuck or pubic lift (or some combination thereof) in favor of liposuction. With this in mind, I highly recommend booking a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon to get a full evaluation and discuss your treatment options.

Yes!  It is a common place that people have liposuction.  It can really help the way clothes fit and improve your confidence.  Go for it!
