The mons pubis, which may also be called the mons Venus or the pubic area, is a section of fatty tissue above the pubic bone. Both men and women have a mons pubis, but it’s typically more pronounced in women. Some women have excess fat in the mons pubis, which can lead to discomfort and self-consciousness, especially when wearing tight-fitting clothing.
Mons lipo is a treatment designed to remove excess fat in the mons pubis for a more streamlined profile. Let’s learn more about the mons pubis and how mons lipo can help you feel more confident in your physique.
What Causes Excess Fat in The Mons Pubis?
Excess fat in the mons pubis may have either been present since childhood or appeared later in life. The most common causes of this include:
Weight gain can cause excess fat to accumulate in the mons pubis, giving it an enlarged appearance.
The fat tissue in the mons pubis is sensitive to estrogen, so high estrogen levels can lead to the development of fat tissue in this area.
Some women are predisposed to an enlarged mons pubis simply because of their genetics.
What is Mons Lipo?
Mons lipo refers to the liposuction of the mons pubis. This procedure is painless, straightforward, and can be done with local anesthesia. This means that you’ll be awake but relaxed during the procedure.
At the Visionary Centre for Women, Dr. Hayes performs mons lipo with a tumescent solution. During the procedure, the solution will be injected into the mons lipo, allowing for greater precision when removing the excess fat cells. A small tube called a micro-cannula is then placed under the skin through a tiny incision, and the excess fat is permanently vacuumed away.
