Will a tummy tuck assist in getting rid of the fat pad right above the pubic bone?

A tummy tuck may help lifting it up. Lipo can help reduce the fat volume as well.

Yes, I routinely perform this during TT and BBL. Expect a slight increase in bruising and seroma formation as fatty tissue in this area is more vascular. No increase in recovery time

When a do a TT, I can do a pubic lift at same time and/or liposuction in the pubic area.

Thank you for sharing your excellent question. It is certainly possible to thin and lift the tissues above the pubic bone to optimize results. Be sure to discuss this with your surgeon.
