Question
Hello, my question is which procedure is more effective in removing the most fat possible from the
Male pubic mound region?  How much does that procedure cost? Is a skin tuck necessary afterwards? And what is the recooperation time needed?

Answer
Hi Jay,

Generally (I can't be more specific via a forum such as this) both procedures are effective, prices range from about $4000-7500 in New York for lipo of this region, you may need to have the skin tightened (depending on what your maximum weight was, your current weight and the specifics of your skin) and it takes a week or so to recover from the surgery but multiple weeks to months to see the final results. That's true for any lipo but even more so for pubic lipo and lipo of other regions (such as the calves and ankles).

I hope that this helps, and good luck,

Dr. E
