PanniculectomyPosted on June 12, 2017
Abdominoplasty is a common procedure that is performed by many different plastic surgeons and is meant to tighten the muscles in the stomach area. Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery performs this procedure on many different patients each year and is highly experienced in this area. With that in mind, its always good to learn about different procedures that can be done (sometimes during the same surgery) in addition to your abdominoplasty surgery.
A panniculectomy is a procedure that is commonly done at the same time an abdominoplasty is taking place. This surgery is performed to remove excess fat and skin below the belly button and around the back.
A candidate for panniculectomy would be one that usually suffers from obesity. These patients have fat that around the hips, back, and sometimes even extends down to the knees.
