Excess abdominal skin
Thank you for your question. The procedure that might be indicated for you is a panniculectomy, not a tummy tuck. I recommend consulting with a board certified plastic surgeon to determine if removal of your excess abdominal skin would be of any benefit with your stoma problems. A panniculectomy in your case may be covered by your insurance. However, if you are on medicare, the surgeon may require payment up front and then reimburse you if/when payment has been received from Medicare following your procedure. Hope this helps.
