A panniculectomy should not preclude you from having a full tummy tuck later. Both procedures use similar incisions although the dissection is much more extensive in a tummy tuck vs a panniculectomy. Make sure you consult with an experienced abdominoplasty surgeon. Good luck on your journey.
If I have a panniculectomy now, is it possible to get a tummy tuck later?
