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 top of the mons.
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.
What are the risks?
Standard risks of any surgical procedure include tenderness, swelling, bruising, infection and scarring. Haematoma and seroma are rare.
In terms of recovery, patients may shower 24 hours following the surgery. It is important to avoid heavy lifting or exercise for the first 6 weeks. You can return to work within 3-5 days, depending on your occupation. You can drive within the first week, given that you are not in pain that may compromise your ability to drive safely.
