What is a panniculectomy?

A flat stomach can ordinarily be achieved through a nutritious diet and exercise, but getting rid of that lower belly pooch can be trickier than you may think. Ideal for patients looking to reduce stubborn lower belly fat and skin that has been resistant to exercise, plastic surgeon Dr. J. Timothy Katzen performs panniculectomies at his office in Beverly Hills, CA. Removing this excess skin and fat can also increase mobility, widen your options when it comes to clothing, and reduce chafing and irritation of the skin in this area. If you are looking for a way to remove excess tissues in your lower abdominal region, schedule a consultation at J. Timothy Katzen, M.D. Beverly Hills to find out more information on why a panniculectomy may be helpful for achieving mobility and functional goals.

How does a panniculectomy work?

Dr. Katzen performs panniculectomy as an outpatient surgery in an accredited surgical facility while you are under general anesthesia. During the 1 – 2-hour surgery, Dr. Katzen will make one or more tiny, horizontal incisions between the belly button and the pubic hairline. Dr. Katzen will define the midline linea alba and the outline of the rectus muscle. Excess fat will be removed and loose skin will be trimmed away, all while keeping the muscles in tact. Whereas tummy tuck procedures tend to remove loose skin and extra fat along with tightening the abdominal muscles, a panniculectomy does not usually tighten muscles as part of the procedure. Dr. Katzen will stitch together the remaining skin over the tissues that have been untouched by the procedure.
