Pubic Area Liposuction

Pubic Area Liposuction  |Before-After|

The pubic area sometimes accumulates unwanted fat and redundant folds that can be improved with liposuction.

Because this is a small area, both in surface area and in volume, smartlipo is often our recommended treatment of choice.  Plus, the skin tightening with smartlipo is often needed in this sensitive cosmetic region.

FUPA Liposuction:  Fat Upper Pubic Area

Cosmetically speaking, this area bothers so many people that it has its own Acronym for Fat Upper Pubic Area: FUPA.

Both men and women can be bothered by fat in that region.

Overall, liposuction and smartlipo offer good amounts of success.

2 incisions are typically required, one on each side of the pubic area hidden in the groin crease.  When done in conjunction with abdominal liposuction, the lower abdomen incisons can often be used.

The area is then numbed with fluid.

the laser is used to melt the fat and help tighten skin.

The fat is then aspirated.

Recovery Process

The upper pubic area is prone to prolonged swelling when healing from liposuction.  This is because it is an area that has a lot of lymphatics.

You can expect about 30 days of non-painful swelling.

The area can “harden” as well during this healing period.  Daily rubbing massages will help accelerate the healing.

Sexual function in men and women can resume at about one week, despite this swelling.
