Couldn't find what you looking for?


Many women are concerned with the bulge that sits in their pubic areas. Many are so pronounced and women are so embarrassed that they refuse to wear swimsuits, shorts, certain material and other types of clothing. This problem is not a rare one: It is a very common one, and you are definitely not alone, and the best part is; there is a solution.

This area is called the mon pubis, and can be for some rather bulgy and prominent where they find it embarrassing to even wear certain item of clothing. For others, it can also be flatter or it can be quite low, and to many women, it looks abnormal. The mon pubis is that area where the pubic hair growth and pubic bone. This is more common in overweight men and women, or even following weight loss. Also, this can be common following a C-section and other procedures where there a horizontal incision is made in the lower section of the abdomen.

Very often, the area hangs down which contributes more to the bulge. In some cases, even thinner women will bulge in that area than normal, so this is not a problem for just and all overweight men; nor is it a problem for all or just curvy, voluptuous women. Depending on the individual's goals and needs, there are a variety of different things that can help. Of course diet and exercise are the most natural ways. However, in many cases, diet and exercise do very little to decease the subcutaneous fat layer in the mon pubis area.

To this end, if you are truly concerned, embarrassed, self-conscious , and especially if this is debilitating and preventing you from forming relationships and being intimate; then it is time to speak to your doctor or gynecologist. He or she will conduct an examination of the area, assess the situation and if necessary, will recommend and refer you to a plastic surgeon that specializes in such surgeries.

When diet and exercise fails, the next option is usually for those who can afford it; liposuction. This is quite common and is usually done through the use of ultrasonic liposuction, which involves an excision in the mon pubis area to get rid of the excess skin and/or fat, or tucking and tightening in the area. While different procedures are done separately, many women who are thinking of a tummy tuck will seize the opportunity and get both at the same time, or they will consider a tummy tuck if they decide to surgically flatten or tighten their mon pubis' area.

There are several different ways and procedures involving liposuction to correct this. Therefore, in order to determine the best solution for you, it is best to conduct your own research, ask professionals in the field and individuals with similar experience and secure consultations with several plastic surgeons that are board certified so you are well informed. A surgeon will conduct a complete evaluation to ensure you are a good candidate for the procedure, and that it will be fairly safe for you to undergo such a surgery. If you are? Great! Overall, the results have been proven to be quite impressive, and lasting.

Again, there is nothing to be scared of, or to be too worried about. Whatever you do, please know that YOU ARE NOT inferior, damaged, or abnormal in any way, shape or form (pun intended). This is no different from other body parts. For example, some people are born with very tiny noses, while others have bigger noses and so on. This is important for you to know. Especially since this can be as a result of overweight as mentioned earlier. However, many times, it is just your genetics, and therefore your own and unique body shape.

However, if that burning concern is just lingering-why not ease your mind? Your first step should be to book an appointment to see your doctor or gynecologist. From there, chances are you will then consult with a plastic surgeon who will address your concerns, discuss your options, reduce your fears, ease your mind, and together you will weigh your options, pros and cons, and be able to arrive at a solution that is safe and suitable for you-if he or she feels you are a good candidate for the surgery.

That said, and all considered, do not fret. As always play it safe. In this case, playing it safe would entail conducting very solid, thorough, in-depth research; asking as many questions as possible, and be certain you deal with ONLY plastic surgeons that are board certified. Good luck and please, please, do not stress yourself out over this, instead see your doctor.
