What is Mons Pubis Reduction?

Women are more concerned with the appearance of the pubic area today because of the kind of clothes they are wearing. Therefore, Mons Pubis Reduction is a method of shrinking the pubic area into the size of the patient’s choice. Due to weight gain, genetics, ageing, or after childbirth, the pubic area may become fat or bulging and make wearing tight clothing difficult.

The best way to know if you are a candidate for mons pubis reduction is to schedule a consultation with our surgeons.

The Procedure

Mons pubis reduction, or pubic mound reduction, is a procedure for reducing the fatty area above the genitals of both men and women. 

Mons pubis reduction can be done under general anaesthesia or local anaesthesia with sedation depending on the extent of the surgery. The local anaesthesia with sedation is for cases when a small amount of tissue needs to be eliminated. General anaesthesia is required when this surgery is combined with another invasive procedure, such as a tummy tuck.

In the upper pubic area, a horizontal incision will be made. By raising and tightening the underlying muscles, the pubic area will be firmer. The surgeon will then remove the excess skin and pull it upward into the new position. In the end, the incision will be closed with sutures and skin adhesive. 


Most patients can go back to work one week after the surgery. 

It may cause some swelling, and the discomfort will be controlled by the pain killer prescribed by your surgeon. 

The swelling improves over three weeks, but it may take several months to eliminate totally.

Patients should avoid strenuous exercise or activity for six weeks after the surgery. 

Patients should wear a support or compression garment for 2-3 weeks after the procedure.

Possible complications

Complications of a mons pubis reduction procedure can include the following:

  • -Pain
  • -Abnormal bleeding
  • -Inflammation

    Hello do I have to have a certain BMI to have the mons pubis reduction surgery?

    • BG October 28, 2021 at 12:13 pm - Reply

      The BMI value in and of itself is not a factor in the decision making process for monsplasty. More specifically, a high BMI, even above 52, is NOT a contraindication to monsplasty per se.
      The significance of the BMI is elsewhere and that can -and in my opinion, should- be taken into account. I’ll explain below.
      A patient with a high BMI, say a morbidly obese lady, undergoing monsplasty may later on loose weight. In fact, a few years or decades down the road, the patient WILL loose some weight as she enters the typical old age compulsory catabolic state of body metabolism. Then, the “neo-mons-pubis”, that is the patient’s now-operated-on mons pubis, may look disproportionately big or even disproportionately small, too thick or too thin, or just outright disfigured.
      For this reason, my advice to a patient with a high BMI, say more than 45, is to loose as much weight as possible (even if bariatric surgery is needed) before embarking on monsplasty.
      Naturally, if a patient accepts the possible consequence mentioned above, she may choose to proceed with the surgery that is reduction of mons pubis with or without labioplasty (reshaping of the labiae majora).
