An increasing number of women are choosing to undergo vaginal rejuvenation and enhancement procedures, and the Zelken Institute offers a range of options. If you would like to reduce the bulge in the area above the labia, a monsplasty may be the answer.
Some women struggle with a bulge of excess skin and fat in the mons, the upper part of the hair-bearing part of their vulva. The bulge can result in women feeling too embarrassed to wear a bathing suit or tight pants. A monsplasty is a procedure designed to reduce bulging of the mons.
At the Zelken Institute, we specialize in vaginal cosmetic surgery and provide our patients with a range of surgical services to promote wellness and healing. Dr. Zelken carefully designs every monsplasty procedure to suit the specific goals and needs of the patient. As a plastic surgeon, he is focused on creating natural-looking results, with minimal scarring.
Sometimes the amount of skin removed can be extensive, while in others, liposuction is sufficient. Dr. Zelken prefers to use BodyTite whenever skin is not excised, to allow for skin contracture over time. This results in no visible scars but can take months to result.
If you have the privilege of receiving care from Dr. Zelken then you Are special because you will enjoy meeting him and his staff but most importantly he makes you feel beautiful again which is what every woman wants.

Risks of monsplasty include bleeding, hematoma, infection and scarring.
Depending on the amount of tissue to be removed, local anesthesia with oral sedation may be used for some procedures, but general anesthesia may be preferable in others.
Recovery takes about a week, with physical activity restrictions for two to six weeks, depending on the extensiveness of the procedure. If skin is removed, a drain or two may be placed, with removal typically scheduled within the first few days.
This procedure results in a lower profile mons that typically projects less in clothing. In some patients with a mons that hangs, removal of excess skin can result in less hanging.
