yes that is the only way to treat panniculus

I assume you are referring to a panniculus, the flap of tissue that someone has after losing weight. Such a flap can develop an odor because the folds allow moisture and bacteria to become trapped under there. Without good hygiene, the bacteria can multiply and give off odor.


The word sought is likely panniculus, a flap of fatty tissue, such as what is often removed from the abdomen in an panniculectomy (type of abdominoplasty, or "tummy tuck" surgery).(The similar word pannus refers to a growth such as granuloma of the eye, or vascularization of the cornea.)


Clinical Policy Bulletin:Abdominoplasty, Suction Lipectomy, and Ventral Hernia RepairNumber: 0211PolicyAetna considers panniculectomy/apronectomy medically necessary according to the following criteria:Panniculus hangs below the level of the pubis; andThe medical records document that the panniculus causes chronic intertrigo (dermatitis occurring on opposed surfaces of the skin, skin irritation, infection or chafing) that consistently recurs over 3 months while receiving appropriate medical therapy (e.g., oral or topical prescription medication), or remains refractory to appropriate medical therapy over a period of 3 months.Aetna considers panniculectomy/apronectomy cosmetic when these criteria are not met.Aetna considers panniculectomy/apronectomy experimental and investigational for minimizing the risk of hernia formation or recurrence. There is inadequate evidence that pannus contributes to hernia formation. The primary cause of hernia formation is an abdominal wall defect or weakness, not a pulling effect from a large or redundant pannus.Aetna considers repair of a true incisional or ventral hernia medically necessary.Aetna considers repair of a diastasis recti, defined as a thinning out of the anterior abdominal wall fascia, not medically necessary because, according to the clinical literature, it does not represent a "true" hernia and is of no clinical significance.Aetna considers abdominoplasty, suction lipectomy, or lipoabdominoplasty cosmetic.BackgroundIn order to distinguish a ventral hernia repair from a purely cosmetic abdominoplasty, Aetna requires documentation of the size of the hernia, whether the ventral hernia is reducible, whether the hernia is accompanied by pain or other symptoms, the extent of diastasis (separation) of rectus abdominus muscles, whether there is a defect (as opposed to mere thinning) of the abdominal fascia, and office notes indicating the presence and size of the fascial defect.Abdominoplasty, known more commonly as a "tummy tuck," is a surgical procedure to remove excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen and to tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall. The procedure can improve cosmesis by reducing the protrusion of the abdomen. However, abdominoplasty is considered by Aetna to be cosmetic because it is not associated with functional improvements
