Massive Pannus Compromise
Sometimes patient safety forces a compromise between beauty and a safer operation. In a reasonable risk patient, pannus reduction can be artistic sculpture:

High Risk Pannus Reduction Compromise
This patient was a 68 year old diabetic with wound healing problems had a MASSIVE pannus hanging from her abdomen. This mass included a 10 liter tumor along the lowest most portion. She is obese but the abdominal wall extra tissue made it almost impossible to move well. Her weight before surgery was 240 pounds.

The patch on the left picture is on a wound that had difficulty healing months after a General Surgeon's endoscopic surgery approach for a hernia repair. This patient's pannus was so massive she could not walk. Her skin would tear from the stress of the gigantic hanging flesh.

Safety of the patient must be part of this surgery plan.
She had an abdominoplasty panniculectomy operation where an approximately 70 pounds of mass and fluid were removed. This is a different type of tummy tuck - a compromise situation. The incisions are located to maximize tissue survival instead of camouflaging them just above the groin. This particular geometry resulted in a "T" shaped scar, other configurations may be required for other problems. The grossly distorted umbilicus (belly button) was intentionally not included in this reconstruction. Panniculectomy surgery of such magnitude can be risky. Tissue is a long away from its blood supply in such patients. Diabetics have a greater risk of wound healing problems

The 11 Liter tumor and pannus of 70 pounds were reasons for performing this compromise panniculectomy surgery in a higher risk patient.

Sculpting adjacent areas was just too much risk for this patient, thus the major compromise to maximize safety.

After surgery she did well, walking became much easier without the extra mass. Hygiene became less of a problem. Conservative surgery is much safer in a diabetic patient with wound healing problems.

When possible, weight loss is a better coarse sculpting tool reserving tummy tuck Abdominoplasty for refinement. Learn more about plastic surgery after weight loss.

In healthier patients, we can often perform more extensive surgery and achieve a slimmer result. Learn more about more typical abdominoplasty sculpture of the stomach and Dr. Bermant's Tumescent Tummy Tuck Abdominoplasty.
