After a major weight loss, loose skin makes the body to loose the proper silhouette.   When excess skin hangs from the lower abdomen and covers your genitals, it brings health issues such as skin infections and rashes underneath.  This condition also interferes with your daily life and may cause back pain.  A Panniculectomy surgery basically removes the pannus, also known as apron or overhanging skin.   This procedure is different from a tummy tuck, since the panniculectomy does not tighten abdominal muscles.

Am I a Candidate for Panniculectomy Surgery ?

You are a candidate for this procedure when your weight has been stable for over six months.  Any fluctuations may affect the positive outcome of the procedure.

Do I Need a 30 BMI ?

Your BMI can be 30-39 to undergo this procedure since it is considered a major surgery instead of a cosmetic procedure.

What Kind of Incisions Will the Surgeon perform ?

Basically a horizontal incision from hipbone to hipbone. If necessary a vertical incision that extends to the pubic bone.

Can a Panniculectomy be Combined with a Tummy Tuck ?

Yes it can.   When combined with a Tummy Tuck and/or Liposuction, it will be considered as part of a lower body lift procedure.

Recovery Period

The recovery period may take from eight to ten nights.
