Abdominal Panniculectomy

This is what I am waiting to have done, I have to get below 186, have a BMI below 30, and I have a year to do it in. Than I have to keep it off for a year before medical here will consider doing it.

Just wondering if anyone had it done and what their thoughts on it are.
Thanks

Have you done any research on it? I would if I were going to have it done. I googled it and there's a LOT of info out there. You might want to combine it with a "tummy tuck" which involves the abdominal muscles.

This is interesting. I found it when I googled Abdominal Panniculectomy:
It may be performed as a standalone procedure or combined with a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty).

Abdominoplasty tightens the abdominal muscle and removes excess skin and fat, while a panniculectomy only removes excess skin and fat (also called pannus). A panniculectomy may also be performed with another abdominal surgery, such as a hysterectomy, or with a repair of the abdominal wall or a belly button hernia.

Good luck.

Yup looked up but wanted some feedback from some that might have had it. This is covered, an actual tummy tuck ain't covered by medical here. It's to mostly repair damage from a hysterectomy that was done. Well not damage, but sections that have pain constantly.

Ask in the Playground, seems to me it's been discussed there before. Or use the search engine here and some posts about it might pop up.

Thanks for the suggestion, I did though use the search before I posted about this, but maybe spelt it incorrectly.

My thoughts on it.........work your eating plan one day at a time, get near your goal weight, and THEN DECIDE ABOUT SURGICAL PROCEDURES!

After losing 200 lbs., I have a "hanging apron" and could afford cosmetic surgery to remove much of it. I haven't given it a moments thought, and I wear that flab as a badge of honor! I wouldn't trade a moment of my time recovering from such surgery as I have more to make up than I'll ever get to.

The above is my opinion and is the choice I made. Others have decided to have cosmetic surgery and that choice improved their lives.

So, the choice is yours alone and what anyone else says, pro or con, should have little or no influence on you. But, I would bet a big shiny dime that as you near your desired goal your priorities will change in ways you can never imagine.

My sister had a tummy tuck years back and I couldn't tell a bit difference after she suffered through all of that. She had a lot of pain with it and it was 2 or more weeks before she could get up and walk. I was beginning to get worried about her. Dr. left a hole in her stomach and it didn't want to heal. Took her forever to get over it so I am like, nope If when I get all my weight lost and I have it hanging I'll just flop it over my shoulder and keep going . ;-) Joking of course but that's the only person I've known of that had anything like that done.

I had it done and am really glad I did.. I don't have a perfect tummy but with the Pannus gone, I no longer have rashes or pain because of my stomach hanging down. I would definitely do it again... It was worth every penny. My insurance covered it and I paid extra to do the tummy tuck as well...
