The mons pubis is the soft mound of fatty tissue covering the pubic bone above the vulvar area and is considered one of the important aesthetic features of a feminine physique. With normal aging, this region enlarges and laxity in this region due to obesity or weight loss can cause the mons pubis to excessively sag, affecting functionality and selfconfidence during intimacy. It is important to have a good self-esteem and a good body image in order to have a healthy sexual relationship. Therefore, laxity of the mons pubis can be considered an important factor of dissatisfaction in a sexual relationship.
We hypothesize that the addition of monsplasty to the standard abdominoplasty surgery will improve the appearance of the mons pubis as well as enhance the patient's sexual satisfaction. We performed a prospective study to evaluate the sexual satisfaction of 46 patients who underwent abdominoplasty combined with monsplasty. It was found that all participants had a significant improvement in their sexual relationships, compared to, an improvement in only 44% of the 34 patients who had abdominoplasty alone (Table 1).
It was concluded that the addition of Monsplasty to a standard abdominoplasty significantly increased the patient's satisfaction in their sexual lives, as well as, increasing their partner's attraction to them.
