What is a Panniculectomy?
Panniculectomy removes the large “apron” or bulge of post-weight loss skin and fat from the middle and lower torso. This extensive procedure, unlike the tummy tuck, generally removes a drastic amount of excess skin that may have been stretched out around the hips and lower back.
The procedure is performed under general anesthesia, may require a hospital stay and most patients recover within three weeks to several months.
