FUPA is a slang term known as (Fat Upper Pelvic Area or Fat Upper Pubic Area). Another term for this is pannus or panniculus. The main causes for the FUPA is typically due to genetic predisposition which results in extra fat around the pelvic area also known as mons pubis which is hard to get rid of with only diet and exercise. Other causes can be due to stress, aging, pregnancy and weight changes.

Although options such as Coolsculpting can treat this area, the best option is liposuction to remove the excess fat in your lower midsection which is also known as monsplasty. Dr. Eric Payne, our skilled plastic surgeon, will design a unique treatment plan and discuss the risk and benefits of the procedure at your initial consultation.
