The operation can be conducted under local or general anesthesia as an outpatient surgery.
Pubic mound liposuctions can remove the excess fat, and therefore eliminate unwanted volume. It is usually performed at the medical office under local anesthesia and lasts about 30 minutes.
Skin retensioning can sometimes require general anesthesia and has to be performed at the clinic. It can also be combined to a liposuction. The scar is hidden under the underwear.
Fat cell autograft is best adapted when someone lacks volume in their pubic area, typically someone who is especially skinny. The autograft allows for an augmentation of both the pubic mound and the labia majora. Small amounts of fat are removed from another body part, usually the inner knees, and are then transferred through very small needles, leaving no scars. This procedure also gives a rejuvenated look to the skin.
