Some women struggle with enlargement of the pubic area causing a bulge in clothing, which can be very uncomfortable and cause them to feel self-conscious. This can either be due to excess fat, which can be improved with liposuction alone or due to both excess skin and fat, which is treated with a pubic lift. A pubic lift tightens the area with an incision near the bikini line. This procedure can be combined with liposuction of the area or performed with other body contouring cases like a tummy tuck. Recovery includes 2 weeks of restrictions on activities and minor swelling that can come and go for several months after surgery.
