Lifting and liposuction of the pubis

The pubic region can have large deposits of fat which can be unsightly. Many men and women avoid the use of tight clothes or swimsuits for this reason. A liposuction of this suprapubic deposit of fat can improve the contour. In the case of men, the stored fat in the pubis is the cause of an effect that provokes an appearance of a penis which is not as long as it really is. This can provoke certain complexes which have an easy solution.

In some patients the excess of fat is joined to an excess of skin which also hangs. In this case the fat is extracted and the excess skin is then eliminated through an incision which is left hidden under the bikini line and in many cases is hidden by the pubic hair.
