Common reasons to treat the mons:
- Unwanted fullness or excess skin of the mons
- “Mons pannus” or separate noticeable overhanging mons area
- Excess drooping/sagging of the mons
How big are the incisions?
The incisions used in Mons Liposuction are very small and are typically closed with a single stitch. In order to reduce visible scars, the incision is commonly hidden in the groin crease.
The incisions for the liposuction tend to heal rapidly and leave no noticeable scar, however this can show variance between different patients and how their body heals.
The incision used for lifting of the mons is a horizontal incision at the upper border of the mons. Although this scar will be visible, we have amazing scar reduction opportunities as add on treatments in our clinic.

In terms of recovery, walking on the day of surgery is recommended. You may shower 24 hours after surgery. You should refrain exercise for 6 weeks. You may notice swelling after workouts. You may return to work the week after surgery, depending on your pain level, stamina, and activities required in your occupation. You may drive once you are no longer taking pain medications or muscle relaxers, and must allow a 24 hour minimum window between your last pain medication or muscle relaxant dose and driving.
