Many women are interested in removing stubborn localized fat through liposculpting the Mons Pubis and/or the Labia Majora in Houston. They feel self-conscious about this area, especially while wearing a bathing suit or while working out at their local gym. For most women, this area is treated while undergoing lipo of the lower abdomen.
The Mons Pubis is the region of the body that lies above the pubic bone and offers cushioning during sexual intercourse. The Labia Majora consists of paired cutaneous folds that also contain fatty tissue; these extend posteriorly from the Mons Pubis.
Why Does Excess Fat Accumulate in These Areas?
Several factors may result in fat accumulation in the Mons Pubis and Labia Majora areas. These may include:
- Hormonal Imbalances
Additionally, undergoing other procedures can cause the skin to hang above the pelvic region. Regardless of the cause of fatty Mons Pubis and Labia Majora, liposuction can be an effective method for the reduction of fat from this area.
Who Is a Good Candidate for This Procedure?
A consultation with Dr. Mark Hennessy is the best way to find out if liposculpting of the Mons Pubis and Labia Majora is right for you. Your consultation will include a physical examination of the treatment area, a review of your medical history, and a discussion about your aesthetic goals. Dr. Hennessy will use this information to determine if you are an ideal candidate for this procedure.
Good candidates for this liposculpting treatment include women who:
- Have a positive attitude regarding the outcome of Liposculpting their Mons Pubis and Labia Majora areas
- Do not smoke or are willing to quit at least two weeks before their procedure
- Do not suffer from serious health concerns like heart disease
- Have a high degree of skin elasticity and good muscle tone
The Mons Pubis Liposculpting Procedure
In most cases, this fat removal procedure is completed while the patient also undergoes liposuction of other areas like the abdomen. Liposculpting of the Mons Pubis and Labia Majora regions can be completed in approximately 30 to 40 minutes (depending on the amount of fatty tissue to be removed).
This cosmetic procedure can be carried out under local anesthesia. General anesthesia may be used if the procedure is being done in conjunction with liposuction for other areas of the body.
Once the anesthesia has taken effect, small incisions are made in the targeted regions, so Dr. Hennessy can access the unwanted fat. The fat is then broken down using advanced liposuction techniques. The broken-down fat is then removed through a cannula, sculpting the area.
Mons Pubis Liposculpting Preparation
You’ll be provided with a list of all medications and herbal supplements you should stop taking before you undergo the Liposculpting procedure. In order to minimize bruising and inflammation after lipo, patients must discontinue Aspirin, NSAIDs (anti-inflammatory medications), and any blood thinning herbal supplements (like St John’s Wort) for ten days prior to Liposculpting.
You must also stop smoking for a minimum of two weeks prior to the procedure and for at least one week after the procedure, or as directed by Dr. Hennessy. Nicotine interferes with the body’s healing process and circulation, so it is very important to follow Dr. Hennessy’s instructions regarding the cessation of smoking.
Mons Pubis Liposculpting Post-Procedure
Bruising, swelling, and/or mild discomfort can occur after a liposculpting procedure. These post-procedure effects are temporary and will fade as you recover. The extent of bruising and swelling will depend on how much fat is removed. A compression garment will be applied immediately after the completion of Liposculpting to ease these symptoms and promote healing.
Patients will receive a prescription for pain medication prior to their procedure. This medication can be taken as directed to help keep you comfortable during the initial stage of the healing process.
Mons Pubis Liposculpting Recovery
The majority of patients can return to light activities within a few days of the procedure. Strenuous activities should be avoided for about six weeks after liposculpting, or as recommended by Dr. Hennessy. Patients who are in good overall health prior to the liposculpting procedure tend to experience the shortest recovery periods.
Mons Pubis Liposculpting Results
Liposculpting results are best appreciated 6 weeks post-procedure. The Mons Pubis (and all areas) treated will maintain their post-lipo appearance as long as the patient maintains a healthy diet and exercises.
Positive results can be seen quickly if the skin has good elasticity, but the skin may initially appear loose in the pubic region if you already have loose skin prior to Liposculpting of the Mons Pubis and Labia Majora.

Mons Pubis Liposculpting Cost
The price of liposculpting the Mons Pubis and/or the Labia Majora is based on the details of the procedure, which vary from patient to patient. The overall time needed to perform the procedure affects cost, as does the amount of fat removed.
