What is Monsplasty?
After undergoing phalloplasty or metoidioplasty with scrotoplasty, the scrotum may hang between the legs due to an excess of sagging skin and an enlarged pubic mons. When this is the case, a monsplasty, or “pubic lift,” will help to contour the genital area, lifting the phallus out from between the legs. Monsplasty presents minimal risk to the client and can usually be completed in just under an hour. It can be performed in tandem with penile or testicular implants about six months after phalloplasty.
What are the advantages of monsplasty?
Safe, effective and popular surgery
Corrects sagging, excess skin
Contours the pubic area for a more aesthetically pleasing appearance
Improves the results of a scrotoplasty or urethroplasty
Confirms one’s self-image and gender identity
Who makes a good candidate for the procedure?
Dr. Gurjala will meet with you in San Francisco for a private, personalized consultation that includes a physical exam and thorough review of your aesthetic and functional goals. During this initial session, he will present you with the pros and cons of the monsplasty procedure so you can make the best decision going forward. In general, clients should be non-smokers in good emotional and physical health, with realistic expectations for their results. They will suffer from an excess of skin around the pubic mons that is interfering with the position of their scrotum.
What will recovery from monsplasty entail?
Recovery from monsplasty is fairly routine and rapid. Most patients will require prescription pain medications for several days along with ample rest, and will be able to return to work or school within about one week.
What is the cost of monsplasty?
The fees for monsplasty will depend on many factors. Our office will be able to give you a detailed, personalized quote during your confidential San Francisco consultation. In addition, our office will provide you with applications to trusted healthcare lenders for immediate financing.
