Painful accumulation of fat, caused by lipedema, represents a great burden in everyday life for affected women. Lipedema can occur almost anywhere on the body, even in the genital area. It causes pain while walking or during sexual intercourse. Patients often suffer from strong feelings of shame towards their surroundings and especially towards their partner. Conservative treatment options provide only minor relief, but liposuction can be very effective.
The experienced team of specialists at LIPOCURA® in Munich and Münster has specialised in gentle lipedema removal for years. Therefore, we are very familiar with the symptoms and limitations our patients have to endure and take them very seriously. Many women shy away from medical consultation, especially when it comes to treatment in the genital area. We would like to allay any insecurities and underscore the highly discreet character of our professional consultations.

Just like on the arms, legs or abdomen, the genital area can also be affected by lipedema. The accumulation of fat makes the mons pubis appear unevenly voluminous. It can be sensitive to pressure during movement and lead to painful inflammation due to friction on the legs. At LIPOCURA® we perform mons pubis liposuction using the PAL (power assisted liposuction) method combined with the tumescent technique. By injecting the special tumescent solution, we cause the tissue to swell so that the fat cells to be suctioned off can be gently removed in the next step using a vibrating cannula. Surrounding lymph vessels and veins remain unharmed.
We take a holistic approach to every treatment in our practice and are therefore also there to support you before and after a surgery: from the initial consultation and pre-op to the procedure, including aftercare and potential follow-up treatments. If you have any questions during this period, please feel free to contact us at any time. We will treat your questions with the utmost discretion.
Every liposuction is preceded by an obligatory consultation with our specialists. In it, we use the available findings to determine how we will proceed during the treatment and how complex it will be. Furthermore, we provide detailed information about the surgical procedure and answer all your questions in detail. We want to allay any fears and feelings of shame as much as possible.
At the beginning of the lipedema surgery we administer the anaesthetic to the patient and – after the effect has set in – we make small incisions of 0.5 to 1 cm in the treatment area. Through these incisions we inject the special tumescent solution to loosen the fat cells from the surrounding tissue. Finally, the pathological fat deposits are gently removed from the genital area with the help of the vibrating cannula, the tip of which is set into oscillation. The procedure takes about 2–3 hours.
We do not suture the minimal incisions, as this allows the tumescent and wound fluids to drain later. After the surgery, you will receive special compression pants that prevent the formation of oedemas or unsightly dents and must be worn for about 6 weeks. Depending on the complexity of the surgery – for example, in the case of combined surgery on several areas of the body – our patients also stay overnight for in-patient observation. During the first few days, you should allow your body to rest somewhat and avoid performing any strenuous activities or remaining in a sitting position for too long. Risks of the treatment, such as wound healing disorders, temporary numbness or noticeable scars, are very low if the procedure is carried out properly. Our experienced specialists also adhere to the strictest hygiene and quality requirements.
Liposuction in the mons pubis area may result in excess skin. It does not always disappear by itself and may lead to restrictions in mobility or painful inflammations due to friction. Also, the sagging skin in the genital area is usually perceived as disturbing and unattractive by those affected. That is why we always consider lipedema removal as a holistic treatment at LIPOCURA® and also offer combined or subsequent skin tightening. Possible treatment methods include plasma laser treatment.
