Abstract

The high incidence of female obesity and weight loss has resulted in common complaints of a large, protuberant mons pubis and labia majora (outer labial lips) related to unsightly fat deposits and skin ptosis. The author presents a technique to correct the protuberant mons and pubic descent by performing a pubic lift, fat excision, and liposuction, and then tacking the superficial fibrofatty tissue to the rectus fascia. The labia majora enlargement is treated by fat excision and/or liposuction and skin excision. These techniques eliminate difficulties with sexual intercourse, poor hygiene, and discomfort, while also improving self-esteem.
