Liposuction of the pubic fat pad or is a procedure in which the patient is sedated (unconscious) for the full procedure which usually takes less than an hour, depending on the complexity of the case. Vaser liposuction is most commonly used as it allows the surgeon to accurately target small areas of fat allowing more fat to be removed, more accurately, than with traditional liposuction.
If the skin has become stretched and lax a pubic lift may also be required to remove excess skin.
Removing excess pubic fat and suturing the skin of the pubis to the muscles can significantly improve the appearance of the area and allow more of the penis to protrude from the body when flaccid and erect, giving the appearance of a longer penis.
Patients will need to take one or two weeks off work, depending on the nature of their job.
Your surgeon may advise you not to undertake rigorous physical exercise, sexual activity, or sport for up to one month following surgery.
It is normal to have significant swelling and bruising after liposuction to this area. The swelling and bruising should disappear around 1 month following your procedure.
After surgery, the appearance of the pubic region is improved and the penis extends further from the body when flaccid and erect.
This can lead to improved self-confidence, including an improvement in relationships if the buried penis had made sexual activity difficult.
