Tighten abs in panniculectomy?
Tummy tuck is mainly to improve shape and contour by plicating your core tight then re-draping the skin. Without the core tightening (muscle repair), its not a tummy tuck, but a panniculectomy (skin and fat resection). Massive weight loss almost always requires tightening of your core but if approved fro a panniculectomy only then core will not be tightend by PS.. See a board certified plastic surgeon.
