What is FUPA?

FUPA stands for the fat upper pubic area. It is the area between mons pubis and the lower portion of the umbilicus. If fat accumulates here excessively then, it sags or hangs just above the mons pubis. The skin is loose in this area. The word is also known to many people as panniculus and pannus.

Is FUPA and Fatty Mons Pubis the Same Thing?

Some people make a mistake thinking FUPA and fatty mons pubis is the same thing. But I want to make you clear that FUPA is the upper portion of the mons pubis. You should know mons pubis is the area just above the labia where pubic hears appear. When fat deposits on the mons pubis then it is called fatty mons pubis.

So, you can see the areas are different, one is the upper portion, and another belongs below. So, fatty mons pubis and FUPA is not the same thing indeed.

What are The Causes of FUPA and Excessive Mons Pubis Fat?

The causes of FUPA and the fatty mons pubis are almost the same. It never means that you always have both at a time. You may have only FUPA or excessive fat in mons and you also may have both but not always. The primary causes are below.

Weight Gain and Rapid Weight Loss

You are getting weight means an excessive amount of fats are depositing in your body, especially under the skin. And naturally excessive fat may be accumulated in the mons pubis and also in the upper pubic area.

On the other hand, some people take some steps so that they can lose weight rapidly. During that period, FUPA may appear. Weight losing exercises and diets are beneficial for weight loss, but their main target may not pelvic area. That is why the fat in the pelvic region does not lose properly, and you get FUPA.

Menopause and Aging

Day by day, you are getting older. After 45-50 years, most of the females develop menopause, and then many hormone changes occur inside the body. As a result, FUPA may develop. On the other hand, males are not related to menopause, but they also become older. At that time, the skin becomes loose and develops FUPA to the male.


During pregnancy, the abdominal skin becomes stretched out to make the space for the baby. At that time you cannot notice FUPA, but after delivery, you will notice that you develop hanging pooch.


When you are in so much mental pressure and stress, your body increases the secretion of the hormone cortisol. The function of cortisol is converse to insulin. And the hormone cortisol enhances fat deposition around the midsection. Eventually, you develop FUPA and excess fat to the mons.

Genetic Factor

It is one of the main reasons to develop FUPA. You don’t know about your genetic information. Your genes identify the area where to deposit the extra fat of your body. Similarly, they also determine where fat burn starts first.

You may have noticed that some people born with elevated mons pubis and FUPA also. If genetics responsible for this issue, then it resists all effort to reduce fat in the mons and upper pubic area.

Wearing Tight Pants

This is one of the primary causes of these issues. When we wear tight pants, then the pant exerts much pressure around the pelvis and helps to accumulate fat in the pelvic region. You also notice that the portion is slightly depressed where you wear the pant. But extra fat appears just above the line which is FUPA. So, you should be careful about the pant you wear. Try to wear the pant that fits well.
