FUPA (Fatty Upper Pubic Area) liposuction is an effective surgical procedure that can help contour the lower abdominal region. The FUPA is a common concern for many people, and it can be challenging to address through healthy living alone.
The procedure involves using a small cannula to remove excess fat from the upper pubic area, creating a smoother and more contoured appearance. This procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia with sedation, allowing patients to remain comfortable throughout the entire process.
Fortunately, Dr. Sean Younai of Younai Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills, California is an experienced plastic surgeon who performs FUPA liposuction to help patients achieve their ideal body shape.

Before and After Photos
Adipose tissue, also known as fat, is a natural part of our bodies. It serves as an energy reserve, insulation, and cushioning for our organs, among many other vital roles. (1) However, when we have excess adipose tissue in certain areas, it can negatively impact our physical appearance and self-confidence.
Liposuction is a popular cosmetic surgery that removes unwanted body fat from specific areas of the body such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, and arms. This procedure can help patients achieve a more contoured and toned physique by targeting stubborn areas of fat. A FUPA liposuction removes excess fat from the pubic area. Candidates for this procedure are usually individuals who have stubborn pockets of fat in the lower belly region, which do not respond to diet and exercise. These people may feel self-conscious about their appearance and want to improve their body contour.
At Younai Plastic Surgery, we understand that every patient is unique and has different aesthetic goals. That’s why we offer more than one liposuction technique to tailor the treatment to each patient’s needs.
This technique involves making small incisions in targeted areas and using a microcannula to suction out excess fat. It also involves the use of tumescent fluid, a numbing liquid that also makes fat cells swell up for easier extraction. Tumescent liposuction can be performed under local or general anesthesia, depending on the extent of the treatment. This technique is ideal for patients with large amounts of fat to remove and those who desire more significant results.
SmartLipo is a laser-assisted liposuction technique that targets fat cells with laser energy. The heat from the laser breaks down the fat cells, which are then suctioned out. The laser also tightens the skin in the treated area, resulting in a smoother and more toned appearance. SmartLipo is ideal for patients looking to remove small areas of stubborn fat and tighten loose skin.

The ideal candidate for FUPA liposuction is someone who is in good overall health, has realistic expectations about the outcome of the procedure, and is at or near their ideal weight. The general rule for liposuction is that a person should be within 30% of their normal Body Mass Index (BMI). (2)
It’s important to note that FUPA liposuction is not a weight loss procedure and should not be used as a substitute for a healthy lifestyle. Patients should maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine after the procedure to ensure long-lasting results. As with any surgery, there are risks involved, and these will be thoroughly discussed during your consultation with Dr. Younai.
Your journey to a flatter, more contoured midsection starts with a personal consultation at Younai Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills or West Hollywood. During your meeting, Dr. Younai will perform a thorough examination of your FUPA (fat upper pubic area) and surrounding areas to determine if liposuction is an appropriate option for you.
It’s important to note that while FUPA liposuction can be a highly effective way to remove excess fat in the pubic area, it’s not a weight loss solution. Ideal candidates are within a healthy weight range but struggle with stubborn pockets of fat in the upper pubic area. If you have significant skin laxity or muscle separation in the abdomen, a tummy tuck may be a more appropriate procedure.
Before undergoing FUPA liposuction, it is important to prepare yourself both physically and mentally for the procedure. At Younai Plastic Surgery, we provide our patients with detailed pre-operative instructions to ensure a smooth and successful surgery with optimal results.
- Discontinue the use of blood thinners, supplements, and other medications as instructed.
- Stop smoking or using nicotine products several weeks prior to your surgery
- Fill pain medication and antibiotics in advance of your procedure.
- Coordinate a ride home and an escort who can assist you during your early stages of recovery.
- Arrange time off from work and social commitments.
If you’re seeking to reduce stubborn fat in the area between your pubic bone and belly button, also known as the FUPA, liposuction may be the right procedure for you. Dr. Younai will begin by making a small incision just above the pubic hairline. Through this incision, he will remove excess fat using specialized instruments, sculpting the area to create a more contoured appearance.
Recovery & Results
After undergoing FUPA liposuction, you can expect some swelling and bruising in the area for a few days. Dr. Younai will provide you with a compression garment to wear for several weeks after your procedure to help manage swelling and promote proper healing. To minimize discomfort, pain medication will also be prescribed to you. It is recommended that you avoid any strenuous physical activity or heavy lifting during the first week of recovery. You should also avoid anything that may cause irritation to the treated area.
We will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and ensure proper healing. The results of your FUPA liposuction will become more noticeable as swelling subsides, typically within 4-6 weeks after the procedure. You can expect a firmer and flatter tummy, with a significant reduction in excess fat deposits in the pubic area. Scarring will be minimal and located in inconspicuous areas.

Who is a good candidate for FUPA liposuction?
Ideal candidates for FUPA liposuction are individuals who have tried diet and exercise, but still have excess fat deposits in the lower abdomen. They should be in good overall health, at a stable weight, and have realistic expectations about the results.
How is FUPA liposuction performed?
FUPA liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure that involves making small incisions in the targeted area. A cannula is then inserted through the incision to suction out the excess fat. The procedure typically takes around 1-2 hours and is performed under local anesthesia or IV sedation.
Will there be scarring after FUPA liposuction?
FUPA liposuction incisions are small and placed in discrete areas, so scarring is minimal. Any scars that do develop are typically small and fade over time.
Are the results of FUPA liposuction permanent?
The results of FUPA liposuction are long-lasting, as the fat cells removed during the procedure do not regenerate. However, it’s important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regularly to prevent new fat deposits from forming in the treated area.
Is FUPA liposuction painful?
The procedure itself is not painful, as it is performed under anesthesia. However, you may experience some discomfort and soreness in the treated area after the procedure. Medications can help manage these symptoms.
