Panniculectomy in New Jersey

What Is Skin Removal Surgery?

Skin removal surgery, known in medical circles as a panniculectomy, is a procedure to remove the excess skin and fat tissue that hangs down from your lower abdomen. This pannus stomach, also called an apron belly, is a large flap of skin that can cover your genitals and thighs after a massive weight loss. The excess skin and tissue even interfere with your normal life activities, including walking, standing or even sitting.

With excess skin removal surgery, you not only improve your body appearance, but also avoid significant health complications, such as back pain, rashes and skin infections. If you’ve had bariatric surgery or you’ve lost a lot of weight through other methods, a panniculectomy can improve the quality of your life. The procedure allows you to maximize the benefits of your weight loss.

If you have a problem with excessive fat tissue or skin on your lower abdomen, visit the plastic surgery team at Rowe Plastic Surgery in Manhattan, Long Island, New Jersey and the Hamptons. The board-certified surgeons perform a wide range of life-changing cosmetic procedures besides loose skin removal surgery, including:

What they say
I only wish I had done this sooner!

I am so happy with the results of my breast reduction! I only wish I had done this sooner! The Rowe Team handled everything with my insurance and it was a breeze. I love my new breasts! The surgery was easy and I went home the same day. Most of the doctor's appointments were handled virtually which made things much easier. If you have thought about breast reduction, contact Rowe. Dr Schneider was wonderful!

I am 100% happy with my results

I had an amazing experience at Rowe plastic surgery, from first walking in and dealing with the amazing office manage Simone Web and the countless phone/video calls before and after with physical assistants Elizabeth Janson and Mallory Oxford I have never felt more comfort when getting a surgery. The best part of it all was my experience with Dr. Lisa Schneider who was able to give me exactly what I was looking for. She made me feel comfortable and secure before and after my surgery, she was amazing and I am 100% happy with my results
