Mons Pubis Reconstruction (post improper silicone injection) : Human error such as over injection and improper positioning of the Silicone in the Mons Pubis can cause severe disfigurement and a lifetime of emotional pain. Mons Pubis reconstruction may help alleviate women’s intimate problem.
- Many unsatisfied women come to our Center to discuss their post silicone injection concerns. During our consultations, we try to explain that even if the procedure was performed flawlessly, complications usually arise due to the fact that an unnatural substance (silicone) is embedded in your tissues.
- Our bodies naturally degenerate as we age; silicone does not do so in the same manner. Permanent fillers, like silicone, do not decompose like normal tissues do, thus problems and complications may arise at any given time.
- A woman who has had the silicone injected can be properly removed only by surgical intervention. The removal of injected silicone is quite time consuming and difficult. Silicone tends to form micro-beads that lodge themselves deep within skin tissues. Completely removing every particle is nearly impossible.
- The only true way to remove portions of the injected silicone is to directly excise the affected tissues. Removal of injected silicone from the Mons Pubis requires patience, precision, training, and experience.
- Silicone removal surgeries vary from case to case. Every woman is injected with different quantities and in different locations. Some women require more excision than others. For this type of surgery, it is best to have your personal situation assessed by consultation.
Because of technological advances, Cosmetic Gynecology Surgeries involving the use of laser have been utilized in Mons Pubis Reconstruction (post improper silicone injection). Advantages of laser over old conventional scalpel procedure include; less blood loss, less risk of vessel and tissue damage, precise and accurate surgical wound control, quicker recovery time, and better overall results.
General Notes & Precautions

Your surgeon must determine where most of the silicone injections have settled and what tissue (s) needs to be excised; this takes time, precision, and patience. Many cosmetic surgeons do not perform this type of surgery or are not very familiar with the technique used. There are more surgeons willing to inject silicone than there are willing to remove it.

- Dr. Vitasna will try to reconstruct the deformed Mons Pubis as it was prior to the silicone injection. Afterwards, Dr. Vitasna will suture the surgical wound. The suturing is done alternatively with 2 or 3 layers to avoid post-operative bleeding.
- The surgical wound needs to be covered with a gauze pack after the surgery to stop bleeding. The blood and lymph drainage tubes (wound drain) are put in place, and a urinary catheter is inserted into your bladder via the urethra. The wound drain and urinary catheter may be removed within 3-5 days after surgery. In this regard, some of you may have to keep the blood and lymph drainage tubes for more than 3-5 days after the surgery.
