Mons Pubis Liposuction (Monsplasty/FUPA Surgery) in Melbourne

The Mons Pubis is the fat tissue that sits over the pubic bones (pubic symphysis). It is also known, more poetically, as the Mons Venus or Mons Veneris, and less poetically, on social media, as FUPA (Fatty Upper Pubic Area).

The size of the Mons Pubis depends on levels of hormones and the amount of fat in your body. This is why when girls enter puberty, their hormones and fat levels change, causing the area to enlarge and cover with pubic hair. Later, during menopause, as oestrogen levels drop, the mound then decreases in size.

Reasons for Mons Pubis liposuction

Some women are predisposed to carrying more fat in the pubic area than others. Many women contact me complaining this area bothers them when wearing tight clothes, bathing suits, activewear, or even while naked during intimate activities. ,  As a female cosmetic doctor many women feel more comfortable talking to Joni in her South Yarra rooms about their intimate concerns, and she is more than happy to discuss these issues with you confidentially)

Various women report:

  •  an uncomfortable amount of sweating in the area
  • a noticeable bulge over the pubic bone (drawing attention to an intimate area)
  • feeling that the Mons drags or rubs against clothing

In extreme cases, women report:

  • a feeling of discomfort due to carrying extra weight around
  • that the mons is so large, folds of fat occur, causing bacterial and fungal infections under the crease of the skin

The procedure (monsplasty)

Mons Pubis  (or FUPA) liposuction surgery. Dr Feldman performs the procedure at her registered day procedure centre in South Yarra (near Toorak, Prahran, Windsor and Richmond).

Mons pubis liposuction (aka a pubic lift) does not involve cutting a wedge of skin- which  mons pubis surgery performed by a plastic surgeon (which involves cutting). Dr Feldman has reported that after all her mons liposuction procedures the patient’s skin has retracted. However, if, after six months, the skin does not retract sufficiently, the patient may always opt to have skin removed as a secondary procedure.
