How does weight loss affect the mons and genital areas in men and women after significant weight loss?
Weight gain permanently stretches the skin due to the accumulation of fat under the skin. There can be other changes like stretch marks and skeletal changes that affect the mons pubis and genital region. Weight loss procedures such as gastric bypass and sleeves cause weight loss by impacting your food intake. The negative nutritional balance can also cause the collagen in the skin to loosen. Unfortunately, your successful weight loss can cause this skin to become deflated like a balloon and hang. If it does not retract, it can hang uncomfortably, be visible in clothing, impair your hygeine, sexual function, body image and psychological well being.
What are the benefits of Mons Reduction or Labiaplasty after weight loss?

How are a Mons Reduction or Labiaplasty performed?
There are several variations of a Mons Reduction. Horizontal Mons Reduction reduces the excess overhang of the mons area in men and women. It can be performed as a stand alone procedure or in combination with a tummy tuck or body lift procedure. There is also two Vertical Mons Reduction variations that either remove excess tissue centrally or on the sides depending on where the most excess exists. One of the key aspects of this procedure is the proper selection of the right technique to deliver the most natural looking results. Problems that should be avoided include an overly elevated mons that raises the hair bearing area on to the abdomen. An overly narrowed mons area can also look very un-natural. If performed as a stand alone procedure, a Mons Reduction can be performed under local anesthesia or twilight anesthesia. If combined with other procedures, it is typically done under general anesthesia as a outpatient.
Excess skin after weight loss can also affect the labia majora and labia minora in women and the scrotal area in men. Labiaplasty and Scrotal Redction are the procedure name This skin excess can be addressed by removing the excess skin and contouring the region to a more natural looking form. It is usually performed under local anesthesia or twilight anesthesia. The recovery is about 1-2 weeks and 6 weeks before being released to heavy exercise or sexual activity.
