Question

I want to get rid of the excess skin on the lower abdomen and pubic area.

I've lost a lot of weight and have been a stable weight for 16 months. I also have OSA and LVSD, will I be ok for an apronectomy will my six pack be visible (it's hidden beneath my loose skin). I'm 44 year old male.

Answer

For the abdominal muscles to be noticeable, typically the overall balance of muscle volume and skin tension/volume of fatty tissue under the skin needs to be significantly in favour of the muscle volume.

I'm afraid it is impossible to answer this question accurately without a consultation.
