Monsplasty is a type of cosmetic surgery where excess skin and fatty tissue are removed from the fatty pad over the pubic bone. This fatty pad is called the mons pubis, which is how the procedure got its name. Another name for this procedure is a pubic lift.
The mons pubis may become enlarged from fat accumulation or because the overlying skin is loose. Monsplasty can help create a firmer, flatter appearance in this area. Here’s a look at what monsplasty involves, what the recovery is like, and what it typically costs.
