Pubic Lift Results & Recovery: What To Expect
I have developed a gentle technique that has minimal pain and a quick recovery. After your Pubic Lift in Beverly Hills, your mons will feel tight but should not be painful. If you do have discomfort, Tylenol is usually all that’s needed. I will give you a prescription for a few pain pills to have in case you need them but they are usually not necessary. I encourage patients to stick to Tylenol instead of the prescription pain medication since those pills often create constipation and bloating.
Is There Swelling After a Pubic Lift?
Because of gravity and the mons being the most gravity-dependent area, there is usually some swelling of the tissues for a few weeks after surgery. It will take a few months to see the final result. You will wear a compression garment to support your mons for 6-8 weeks after surgery. This is something we will measure and provide for you. Most of my patients feel almost back to normal at around 1 week after their pubic lift surgery. Recovery takes about a week, with physical activity restrictions for four to six weeks, depending on the extensiveness of the procedure. If skin is removed, a drain may be placed, with removal typically scheduled within the first few days.
This procedure results in a flatter and tighter mons pubis that projects less in clothing. For patients that felt a bulge in this area with clothing, this surgery makes a significant improvement in their quality of life.
