Will Suprapubic Mound Liposuction Be Beneficial?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I am interested suprapubic mound reduction surgery. I have grown up with  a prominent suprapubic mound for a long time and did not know there was anything I could do.I have in the process of losing weight buteven growing up in high school when I was thin I always had it.

A: There are two approaches to reducing the size of a suprapubic mound for improving better show of penile length. Liposuction is part of any technique and may be adequate by itself if there is not a skin excess. However many suprapubic mounds do have excess skin, particularly in those patients who have lost weight, and may require a concomitant pubic lift (like a reverse mini-tummy tuck) with liposuction. I obviously do not know which one would be better for you based on your description alone. Ultimately I would need to see pictures or perform an actual examination to know whether suprapubic mound liposuction would be adequate.
