Why is a panniculectomy done?

anniculectomy is a cosmetic surgery done to remove excess abdominal panniculus or the redundant layer of fat tissue at the lowest portion of the abdominal wall, commonly known as fat apron. It also removes a drastic amount of the stretched out excess skin.

How is panniculectomy performed?

  • The surgeon injects the area with a large amount of solution in order to make it tumescent or firm.
  • A long horizontal incision is made from hipbone to hipbone just above the pubic area. 
  • A narrow cannula is inserted through the incision to perform liposuction to vacuum the excess fat cells.
  • The skin is stretched and the excess skin removed.
  • The skin flap is stretched back into place and sutured.
