Yes, fat surrounding the pubic area can be removed via liposuction. This is a procedure commonly done on that region.

It isn't difficult at all. It can usually be achieved with liposuction alone. In cases of massive weight loss, it may be appropriate to remove excessive residual skin.

Yes, it is possible to have liposuction of the pubis to get rid of the excess fat. This is not an uncommon procedure, and it is often done at the same time as a tummy tuck. Good luck with your decision to have surgery.

Almost any area of the body, including the pubic area, can be liposuctioned, liposculpted. Many times these procedures can be performed under only a tumescent local anesthetic with minimal down time.
