Panniculectomy Surgery
Panniculectomy Surgery

The goal of panniculectomy surgery is to remove hanging or excess skin and fat from the lower abdomen thereby creating a smooth abdominal contour. Panniculectomy differs from lipectomy or tummy tuck in that the abdominal muscles are typically not tightened during a panniculectomy.

Common indications of panniculectomy surgery:

  1. Age
  2. Hereditary
  3. Massive weight loss from diet or exercise or from bariatric surgery
  4. Pregnancy
  5. Prior surgery
