Mons pubis refers to the region above the penis shaft (in men) and above the vagina (in women). This is the area where the pubic hair grows. As men and women age and put on weight, this region bulges in size (varies from person to person) and can make the life of the person uncomfortable and can be a cause for some diseases. Removal of fat from this region and excess skin is called Monsplasty. The procedure is cosmetic in nature and is also called public lift.
