The Specifics

What is a monsplasty?

A monsplasty (a.k.a. a pubic lift) is a plastic surgery to tighten and tone the mons pubis which is the fatty mound of tissue above the genitals. The mons pubis protects the pubic bone and the pubic joint. This area can become enlarged due to weight gain, pregnancy, or childbirth which can interfere with urination, sex, and apperance. A monsplasty removes excess skin and fat of the mons pubis. A monsplasty is not performed in overweight individuals who are not actively pursuing weight loss.

What cosmetic concerns does a monsplasty procedure treat?

  1. Female Sexual Wellness: In a monsplasty, excess skin and excess fat is removed, and muscles are tightened to lift, tone, and tighten the mons pubis.
  2. Mommy Makeover: After pregnancy and childbirth, a monsplasty can be performed alone or as part of a larger vaginal rejuvenation treatment plan.

Who is the ideal candidate for a monsplasty procedure?

The ideal candidate for a monsplasty is at a stable, healthy weight and is seeking toning and tightening of the mons pubis for aesthetic or functional concerns. A Monsplasty is not recommended for those at an unstable weight.

Most patients resume work and light activity within one week following a monsplasty procedure. Exercise can be resumed after four to six weeks. Swelling may persist for a few months.

What can someone expect from the results of a monsplasty procedure?

What is the average cost of a monsplasty procedure?

A monsplasty procedure can cost anywhere from $3,000 to $8,000. The actual cost of a monsplasty is dependent upon location, board certified plastic surgeon, and length and involvement of the plastic surgery.
