A tummy tuck is a much more invasive surgery than a pannus. It involves removing over twice as much skin as well as resetting your belly button. On the other hand, a pannus is only a wedge excision performed of the lower abdomen. Insurance will pay for panniculectomy but not a tummy tuck. As a result, you have to pay for an elective surgery like a tummy tuck.
