Dr. Jason Emer’s experience as one of the most innovative cosmetic surgeons in Beverly Hills has fueled his passion for building an ingredient-conscious, effective and versatile portfolio of skincare products, regimens and procedures.
Mons pubis liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that uses suction to extract fat in order to reduce the volume of the pubic mound. This procedure can be performed on its own, though it is often combined with additional treatments for comprehensive body sculpting improvements.
The mons pubis is the rounded tissue mass located above the pubic bone that typically bears pubic hair. While it is normal to have a pad of fatty tissue in this area, excess fat can make the mons pubis overly prominent.
The cause of unwanted pubic fat can vary from one patient to another. Some patients are genetically predisposed to accumulate fat in this area, while others can develop a larger mons pubis due to weight gain.
In other cases, a previous tummy tuck or abdominal liposuction procedure can make fatty tissue in the pubic area more noticeable. Dr. Emer advises his patients to combine mons pubis liposuction with these procedures to avoid the need for an additional procedure in the future. However, he has performed mons pubis lipo for many patients who received a tummy tuck or ab lipo from a different provider and require this corrective intervention.
To begin, anesthesia will be administered. Next, small incisions will be made. In many cases, incisions can be placed in the crease of the groin, so post-treatment marks will not be noticeable. If the procedure is being combined with a tummy tuck or abdominal liposuction, mons pubis fat may be accessed from the lower belly. Dr. Emer will walk you through the specifics of your unique procedure during your consultation.
Dr. Emer is experienced with several methods of liposuction and will choose the best option for your needs. For precision sculpting and hi-definition results, he often relies on the Body-Jet water-assisted fat removal system, VASER lipo, which is ultrasound-based, and power-assisted liposuction (PAL). Both Body-Jet and VASER are effective methods of separating fat from the surrounding tissue, so it can be more easily extracted.
The unwanted fat will be suctioned out of the body through a thin tube called a cannula, which is inserted via your incisions. Sutures will be used to close the incisions once the fat removal process is complete.
Recovery after pubic mound liposuction typically requires two to three days off work if your job is mostly sedentary. If your career demands more strenuous activity, it may be a week or more before you can resume your full duties.
It is normal for the treatment area to be tender and/or bruised during the initial stage of your recovery. Additionally, swelling is to be expected for several weeks after your procedure. Wearing a compression garment, as directed by Dr. Emer will help to keep swelling to a minimum and will assist in supporting optimal skin retraction.
It is important to adhere to all aftercare instructions provided by Dr. Emer, so you can properly care for the incision sites and protect the area from unnecessary strain and trauma as it heals. Most patients can resume all of their regular activities, including high intensity exercise, after about six weeks.
For the first month after mons pubis lipo, Dr. Emer advises bi-weekly shockwave therapies like ZWave oekly RF treatments with Vanquish, Venus Legacy, or Exilis Ultra. Treatment frequency can be reduced to weekly sessions for the second month of your recovery and further tapered down to monthly maintenance sessions as healing progresses.
The combination of RF and shockwave treatments is advantageous for reducing the risk of irregularities and complications. Additionally, these non-invasive therapies provide skin tightening effects and promote long-term improvements in collagen production.
The ideal number of P-Shot treatments for you will depend on your aesthetic and functional goals as well as whether you have any pre-existing health conditions. Men who have a significant history of ED tend to require a greater number of treatment sessions before their peak results are achieved.
Typically, an initial series of three PRP injections is recommended at intervals of about six weeks. Once you reach your goals for treatment, annual or bi-annual maintenance treatments are advised.
