Gastric bypass, or massive weightloss, may create a flap or “apron” of skin that hangs off a patient’s body. Dr. Dabbah removes the excess skin and fat. When the abdominal muscle is not involved in the surgery, this is called a panniculectomy. In Boca Raton, this surgery is done on the patient who does not have abdominal wall laxity or is an older patient who does not want to go through the recovery of a tummy tuck. The result allows for the patient to move easier and to fit into his or her clothes more comfortably.
