Panniculectomy - Tummy Tuck later?
Doctor Answers 1
If you're very symptomatic with a large pannus, I think it's appropriate for you to consult with a surgeon now to see what your options are to get rid of the hanging pannnus. You will likely become more mobile and be able to lose additional weight after panniculectomy. Let's remember that panniculectomy is a surgery done to improve function and not necessarily to make you look better. If you go on to lose additional weight, you can always have additional procedures to improve the appearance of your body like a tummy tuck or body lift. Best, Dr. ALDO
