Would a full tummy tuck also remove fat from my pubic region and help with buried penis?

Panniculectomy and buried penis
Yes, a panniculectomy or a tummy tuck will help treat a buried penis. The procedure removes the excess skin and fat in the lower abdomen, including above the pubic area. This can help expose the penis and help with hygiene problems related to the excess suprapubic tissue. See a board certified plastic surgeon for an exam and good luck!
Tummy Tuck Procedure Options
There are several procedure options for a tummy tuck that would help remove excess fat from different areas of the abdomen, above and/or below the belly button, which could help with the lower abdomen just above your penis. The standard procedure option listed below would most likely help if you are looking to remove fat both above and below the belly button:
Mini-abdominoplasty tightens the lower abdominal wall and skin below the umbilicus, belly button, only (shortest scar).
Modified abdominoplasty addresses conditions where just the muscle wall or just the abdominal skin requires repair.
Standard abdominoplasty tightens all of the abdominal wall skin and muscles above and below the belly button. The scar can be altered or lowered to be hidden by most underwear and bathing suits. (Standard scar).
Extended abdominoplasty tightens the abdomen and the flanks or sides (longest scar extending around the flanks onto lower back.)
