Dr. Eko of Eko Plastic Surgery offers this procedure to the residents of Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, CA and surrounding areas.
WHAT IS A PANNICULECTOMY?
A panniculectomy is like a tummy tuck, in that it reduces the size of the pannus, or abdominal “apron” on the abdomen, which is excess fat in the lower abdomen that droops below the belt line. Those who have experienced massive weight loss might seek to undergo a panniculectomy to improve personal hygiene and increase self-confidence.
HOW MUCH DOES A PANNICULECTOMY COST?
The cost of your panniculectomy treatment at Eko Plastic Surgery will vary depending on the treatment plan that we develop for you. During your consultation, we will discuss your cosmetic goals and treatment needs in order to determine the treatment approach that will be ideal for you. For this reason, we will not be able to provide you with the cost of your treatment until you have the chance to come in and discuss your treatment goals with Dr. Eko.
WHAT IS THE PANNICULECTOMY PROCEDURE LIKE?
This procedure does not tighten abdominal muscles such as a full tummy tuck. Dr. Eko of Eko Plastic Surgery, will remove the unwanted skin and fat of the pannus using an incision that may reach from hip to hip. After the fat and skin is removed, the remaining skin will be stretched back into place and sutured.
WHAT IS THE RECOVERY LIKE AFTER A PANNICULECTOMY?
Recovery from a panniculectomy usually lasts a few weeks, during which time patients must avoid strenuous activity. If you have lost a large amount of weight but are left with a pannus of excess skin and fat, a panniculectomy can help shape your body to your desired look.
WHAT KIND OF RESULTS CAN I EXPECT FROM A PANNICULECTOMY?
The results of panniculectomy surgery may be initially obscured by swelling and your inability to stand fully upright until internal healing is complete.
Within a week or two, you should be standing tall and confident in your improved profile. Previous abdominal surgery may limit the potential results of a panniculectomy.
