Can FUPA go away without surgery?

Answered by Randy McIntyre

There are non-surgical treatments available for reducing a FUPA (fat upper pubic area) or excess fat and skin in the pubic area. While surgery, such as a pubic lift or liposuction, is typically the most effective way to eliminate a FUPA, non-surgical procedures can also provide significant improvement.

One popular non-surgical treatment option for reducing fat in the pubic area is CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure that uses controlled cooling to freeze and destroy fat cells. It is FDA-approved for treating various areas of the body, including the abdomen and flanks, and can also be used to target the pubic area. During the procedure, a specialized applicator is applied to the treatment area, which delivers controlled cooling to freeze the fat cells underneath the skin. Over time, the frozen fat cells are naturally eliminated from the body, resulting in a reduction of fat in the treated area. CoolSculpting is generally well-tolerated and requires no downtime, although multiple treatment sessions may be needed to achieve optimal results.

Another non-surgical treatment option for reducing a FUPA is BodyTite. BodyTite is a minimally invasive procedure that uses radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis (RFAL) technology to remove excess fat and tighten the skin. During the procedure, a small incision is made in the pubic area, and a thin probe is inserted beneath the skin. The probe delivers radiofrequency energy to heat and liquefy the fat cells, which are then removed through suction. The heat from the radiofrequency energy also stimulates collagen production, leading to skin tightening. BodyTite can provide more dramatic results compared to non-invasive treatments like CoolSculpting, but it does involve a small incision and some downtime for recovery.

It is important to note that while non-surgical treatments can be effective in reducing a FUPA, they may not provide the same level of improvement as surgery. Surgical procedures like a pubic lift or liposuction can remove larger amounts of excess fat and skin and provide more dramatic contouring of the pubic area. Additionally, non-surgical treatments may not be suitable for everyone, and it is important to consult with a qualified healthcare professional to determine the best treatment approach based on individual needs and goals.

While surgical procedures are typically the best way to eliminate a FUPA, non-surgical treatments such as CoolSculpting and BodyTite can also be effective in reducing excess fat and skin in the pubic area. These non-surgical options provide alternative treatment options for individuals who may prefer a less invasive approach or are not good candidates for surgery. Consulting with a qualified healthcare professional is essential to determine the most appropriate treatment option based on individual circumstances.
