    Hi, I’m due to be getting my surgery date sometime in the next 6 weeks. I don’t think I’ll be seeing the surgeon until the day I go in, hence why I’m asking you for help. I’ll more than likely be having a fleur de lis. My question is, will this procedure make a difference to my pubic region? Mons.. i’m sure that’s the proper name for it lol. Is there anyone who’s had this procedure and it has improved the pubic region? I know there is a completely different operation for this, but as my operation is on the Nhs I feel if maybe be pushing my luck to ask about this. Any advice or experience would be massively appreciated.

    I didn’t think it was possible either. Started by going to my GP on the 7th of August last year, attended for clinical photos about a month or two later (at which point I’m presuming those were sent to the board and a decision to was made then but I wasn’t told about that. then I was sent to physcology in November, then a consultation with a surgeon in March, then had pre op 2 weeks ago. Nurse at pre op said looking back my medical records that I’ve done well in keep all that weight off for nearly 10 years and they’d have taken that into account. So may be a factor xx

    I don't know for sure, but I've read lots of things about this procedure and from what I've read it does improve it, but you won't know for sure until you discuss it with the surgeon. Don't be frightened to ask about it, as at least if you mention it they will take it into consideration. If you don't ask you don't get lol. Good luck x
