PANNUS ‘APRON’ REMOVAL

The extra skin and fat hanging below the belt line in the lower area of the stomach is called the pannus, or abdominal “apron”. This may extend several inches from the body, covering the genital areas, and will likely become burdensome because of the added weight.

There is a solution however. Removing the pannus involves a method that directly attacks the area surgically. This is a plastic surgery procedure called panniculectomy, or, abdominal panniculectomy. This specific surgical operation removes the pannus, and is usually performed on its own, or with another operation called abdominoplasty (more commonly known as the tummy tuck).

Christopher Inglefield, from London Bridge Plastic Surgery, said: “Apronectomy does have significant health and quality of life benefits.   Health problems associated with obesity should be addressed before undergoing abdominal panniculectomy or apronectomy.”
