monsplasty pubic lift

Monsplasty or Pubic Lift is a surgical procedure that corrects the pubic bone, known as the mons pubis area, through Liposuction. It removes excess tissue and fat, thus lifting and tightening the skin above the area.

In most cases, these concerns are due to natural factors that include aging, childbirth, weight loss, and hormones. However, if you are one of the many women who feel uncomfortable by an unwanted mound of fat and tissue directly over your mons pubis area, the pubic lift procedure may be right for you.

Here at Memorial Plastic Surgery, plastic surgeons Dr. Patrick Hsu, Dr. Kendall Roehl, and Dr. Vasileios Vasilakis can correct these aesthetic concerns through a Pubic Lift. Our convenient locations make it easily accessible to women across the Greater Houston and Clear Lake Areas, including Katy, Pasadena, Pearland, Sugar Land, Cypress, Woodlands, Conroe, Galveston, Baytown, and Webster.


There are many reasons why women may decide to undergo a pubic lift procedure. The procedure provides women with many benefits that enable them to:

  • Feel comfortable in tight clothing
  • Restore intimacy and sexual well-being
  • Improve self-confidence
  • Enjoy physical activities

How is the Pubic Lift Procedure Performed?

A pubic lift is an outpatient procedure performed under both local or general anesthesia to ensure your comfort during the surgery. Our doctor will begin the surgery by cutting an incision to lift the surgical area before resuturing. This allows our surgeon to remove the excess tissue and skin. The entire procedure takes roughly 1 – 2 hours to complete.

Often, this is combined with liposuction to remove excess fats around the mons pubis area before closing, tightening, and repositioning the excess skin.

Preparing for Surgery

Before your surgery, you will have an initial consultation with one of our plastic surgeons. During the consultation, you will undergo a physical examination, allowing our doctors to assess your needs. It is important to ask questions during your consultation to determine which treatment option is best for you.

How Much Does a Pubic Lift Cost?

On average, a pubic lift procedure price can range from $4,000 – $6,500+ in the Houston and Webster areas. The total cost will cover anesthesia and operating room (OR) fees and follow-up visits with your doctor after surgery. It also includes the professional fees of your surgeon, which vary per doctor. Since the surgical enhancement of the mons pubis is a cosmetic procedure, this surgery is not covered by medical health insurance.
