What is a FUPA?

FUPA is an acronym for Fatty Upper Pubic urea. (Though some people substitute the word “pubic” for another P-word)! A FUPA occurs when you have extra fat on your mons pubis (a.k.a pubic area). The mons pubis is the area where your pubic hair grows. Childbirth, aging, excess weight, and genetics can all contribute to extra fat in this area. Fat can also accumulate here after an abdominal surgery, like a C-section. FUPA Liposuction in Colorado Springs, also known as FUPA Surgery, is the solution for a “chubby” pubic area. If you are self-conscious about your pubic area when wearing fitted clothes, leggings, workout pants, lingerie, or a swimsuit, then FUPA Liposuction may be the right fit for you!

FUPAs are actually really, really common. Often FUPAs are hidden by an overhanging tummy. Many women don’t even notice their FUPA until they lose abdominal weight. But because no one wants to talk about having a chubby pubic area, many women might keep their concerns to themselves.

Is it normal to have a FUPA?

Having a FUPA is nothing to be embarrassed about. For many people, having a layer of fat over their upper pubic area is a natural part of their body shape. Like any other area of the body with fat, a FUPA may fluctuate with weight loss and gain. And like any other area of your body with extra fat, liposuction can be used to reduce FUPA volume—if your FUPA makes you self-conscious. Unfortunately, there are no spot-reduction exercises for FUPAs.

How do you get rid of a FUPA?

The FUPA is one of the easiest areas on the entire body to treat with Liposuction. In less than 1 hour, the extra fat making you self-conscious in leggings, tight jeans, underwear, and bikini bottoms can be significantly reduced. This can be done with usually only two tiny incisions. FUPA liposuction can be safely performed while you are awake and comfortable under local anesthesia. Awake Liposuction avoids the risks and recovery associated with general anesthesia. There is no need to recover from surgery AND anesthesia for FUPA liposuction. Colorado Springs Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Millicent Geers is one of the few Plastic Surgeons who has had specialized training for Awake Plastic Surgery.

What is the best fat reduction treatment in Colorado Springs, CoolSculpting or Liposuction? The answer depends on your needs.

Best Fat Reduction Treatment: CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is technically known as cryolipolysis (pronounced CRY-o-lie-PAW-luh-sis). This is a non-surgical method to reduce fat. The results are not immediate. It takes up to 3-4 months to begin to see the results. Also, you may need more than one session to treat one area to achieve the best results. So if you’re trying to save money, you may end up paying more than if you just had liposuction from the get-go. Cryolipolysis can reduce your fat layer by up to 20-25% (which is only 1/4 to 1/2 of what liposuction can do)! If you’re looking for treatment of small, focal fat pockets, cryolipolyis may be the solution for you.

Best Fat Reduction Treatment: Liposuction

Liposuction is a surgical procedure. The results are immediate. Liposuction reduces your fat layer anywhere from 50-80%. Technically, liposuction can reduce your fat layer by 100%, but that would NOT look good. The only places on the body that look good with minimal to no fat between the skin and your underlying muscle are the top of your hands, the top of your feet, and your forehead. A thin layer of fat provides a soft, natural look, even with athletic physiques. So, if you’re looking for more fat removal in a single session and over a larger percentage of your body, liposuction is the way to go.
