Can Liposuction Reduce My Puffy And Full Mons Pubis?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I don’t live in Indiana but I haven’t been able to find a plastic surgeon in my state that does the type of procedure you do. I have for my entire life had an extreme amount of fatty tissue in my mons pubis region, even when I was 125 pounds (I’m about 140 pounds now) it was just insane how big of a bulge I have down there. I am in a situation financially where I might be able to afford some type of financing arrangement, some type of payment plan… and if that were a possibility I would be more than happy to make the trip out there to Indianapolis to speak with you! I just want to be able to wear a swim suit or tights or just tight jeans without this source of embarrassment! 🙁 I am 26 years old and this has been a major issue for me ever since I was about 10 or 11. I’d give anything to finally have it reduced and just look in the mirror and feel ‘normal’ although I hate that term. I know nobody else would notice a difference because I’ve gone to such extents to hide it but just for myself I know it would give me something that I need more than anything right now in my life. It would give me the peace of mind to just wear whatever I want to wear, to do things that other people do without thinking about how to hide this part of my body… please, if there is any forseeable way you think I could work out the financial aspect of this pleasse let me know if I can meet with you! I would so appreciate it. Thank you for your time, I hope to hear from you soon…

A: A large suprapubic mound is not uncommon in many women although it is more unusual in thin women. But its presence in an otherwise non-heavy woman suggests that it is here to stay and will not be eliminated by any amount of diet or exercise. Surgical reduction by liposuction can be remarkably effective and a lot of ft can be quickly removed, In some patients, a suprapubic lift with the liposuction may be needed if there are any excess skin issues, But that would seen unlikely with someone of your weight range and stability.
