After an excessive amount of weight loss, many individuals experience difficulty with excess skin and subcutaneous tissue around their waist. This tissue may interfere with ambulation and result in hygiene problems. A panniculectomy is designed to reduce excess skin and subcutaneous tissue around the waist. This procedure helps to redefine the natural body curves around the lower abdomen. The procedure may be modified to address fat circumferentially around the entire abdominal region.
