The Area Nobody Wants to Talk About – Pubic Area
The pubic area is naturally a very private zone for both men and women and is an extremely important part of our body that we need to understand. The pubic mound bulge is visible even with clothes on, however, is somewhat of a taboo or no-no, to even talk about this area.
As both a surgeon specializing in After Weight Loss Surgery and a post-op weight loss patient myself, through this article, my goal is that you have a better understanding of the importance of this life-changing procedure.
What is the Mons Pubis (Pubic Area)?
The mons pubis also known as the pubic area is the fatty tissue located above the pubic bone right on top of the genitalia and works as a cushion to protect the important private parts. It has a huge number of lymphatic vessels which drain its content to the inguinal or groin lymph nodes. This area has very good blood circulation because it flows through numerous arteries and veins to help drain to the external and internal genitalia. And of course, it has uncountable amounts of sensitive nerves.
All of the above features are the reason why this is a very sensitive area, and will be tender and painful after any bump or minor hit. After any type of surgical procedure which involves the pubic area, there will be swelling and bruising because of gravity.
Because of genetics the pubic area may be nice and flat, or thick and elevated. It is interesting how the pubic area suffers modifications on its volume, elasticity, and appearance through our lives and will be directly impacted by weight changes, genetics, hormonal influence, childbirth, and aging.
What Happens to the Pubic Area During Pregnancy or Obesity?
During pregnancies or obesity, it is common to see varicose veins which make the area even more tender and sensitive. After gaining weight, the pubic area, in most cases, becomes thicker, very obvious and bulges in clothing. Especially after weight loss, it may become saggy, where the pubic mound bulge turns into a bulky, extremely flaccid area. For many people, this results in being self-conscious and uncomfortable while wearing tight fitting clothing such as exercise wear, leggings, jeans, swimsuits even some regular clothes.
