Living with a flaw that causes such trouble is unnecessary nowadays when medical procedures can easily fix it. Mons Pubis Liposuction is a procedure that has great advantages both mentally and physically for the person in need. Fat deposits on the Mon Pubis area can cause serious damage, especially when it comes to self-confidence. A normal appearance of the area can instantly boost the patient’s belief in oneself. Besides the evident mental effect of this problem, there is a physical one: discomfort in the area when wearing certain type of clothing.
The size and shape of Mons Pubis can be influenced both by the lifestyle of the patient (gaining weight over time) or congenital causes. A protruding Mons area is uncomfortable from each point of view and the liposuction method can solve it. The main advantage of this procedure is its quick efficiency. Another benefit would be a boost regarding the sexual activity of the patient. When self-conscious, people tend to avoid physical contact because of their insecurities. This can be fixed with the help of such procedure.
There is no specific requirement for a candidate to have a Mons Pubis Liposuction. It would be recommended to have a generally good health along with an elastic skin. This is needed because once liposuction is done, skin tends to drop. Loose skin can become worse once the procedure is applied. Mons Pubis Liposuction can be performed both on women and men who present puffiness in the specific area.
Noticing a fat deposit in the Mons Pubis area along with focal overhanging makes the perfect candidate for liposuction. Excess skin is another thing the patient should look for before deciding to make an appointment for a consultation to this procedure. The ideal candidate simply has no other health issues and wants to correct a flaw that stands between them and normality.
Once the patient made the decision, making an appointment for a consultation is the next step. What does a consultation imply? See below:
- A doctor will always want to know more about the patients and their medical background. Suffering from certain diseases or allergies will be discussed since the very beginning to avoid any complications. Once past medical problems have been discussed, the next step of the consultation can begin.
- A general health-check of the patient is required in order to go further with the procedure. The examination will most likely include a height and weight check, blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar and so on.
- The patient will be informed about how the procedure will be performed and a discussion with the doctor about the implication and expectancies will be involved. This is the time when the patients are able to ask any question they may have regarding what they will be experiencing.
Before the procedure will be performed, it is recommended that the patient will specify all the medication they have been taking recently so the doctor can make sure it doesn’t interfere with the anaesthetics. Smoking and alcohol should be avoided two weeks prior the procedure. The day leading up to the liposuction the doctor may recommend consuming lots of liquids.
The first thing the patient should know regarding the procedure is anaesthesia. The liposuction can be done both with local anaesthesia or general anaesthesia. Depending on each individual situation, the doctor will choose the most appropriate method for the patient. After anaesthesia is done, the doctor can proceed to the liposuction itself.
Small-sized incisions will be made along the area so that they can be hidden in the groin creases. The incisions are non-invasive and they can be closed without the use of suture. After making the incisions, the doctor will insert a cannula and fat will be suctioned out with the help of it. To reduce unwanted effects like swelling, draining are being placed in the incisions. The duration of such procedure depends on the quantity of fat that needs to be drained out. It usually takes between 20 and 40 minutes. You can learn more about it contacting Centre for Surgery.
After the procedure the patient should make sure someone will be there to take care of them and provide anything needed at least the first post-op day. The doctor will check up on the patient constantly to make sure everything is alright. Bruising and swelling in the area are normal, along with slight pain. If the patient happens to feel severe pain or extreme numbness in the area it is advised to contact the doctor as soon as possible.
Seven days after the surgery the patient can return to their normal activities. The discomfort in the area can be controlled with the help of medication prescribed by the medic. After 3-4 weeks the swelling should be less obvious. A compression garment should be worn until the doctor decides is safe to remove it. After several months the area will be completely healed.
There are several side effects that can occur after the procedure:
- Antibiotics and medication side effects
Will the procedure hurt?
During the procedure the patient will feel nothing but a little bit of pressure (in case of a local anaesthesia). If the anaesthesia is general the patient will feel nothing and a state of unconsciousness will be induced. Yet, after the procedure the patient might experience pain in the affected area.
How soon can I get back on track?
The patient should wait at least one week until returning to daily activities. Intense physical exercise or activity should be avoided until completely healed.
There will be scars?
Scarring in the area is improbable, given the fact that the incisions made are really small and some of them can be closed by themselves (not requiring suture). Depending on the patient’s type of skin, there is a risk of slightly visible scars in the area.
