Lower body lifts - abdomen; Tummy tuck - panniculectomy; Body-contouring surgery

Panniculectomy is a surgery done to remove stretched out, excess fat and overhanging skin from your abdomen. This can occur after a person undergoes massive weight loss. The skin may hang down and cover your thighs and genitals. Surgery to remove this skin helps improve your health and appearance.

Panniculectomy is different from abdominoplasty. In abdominoplasty, your surgeon will remove extra fat and also tighten your abdominal (belly) muscles. Sometimes, both types of surgery are performed at the same time.
