In brief: Several
Pain, bleeding, hematoma, seroma, abscess, scarring, scar sensitivity, irregular and asymmetric contour, partial or complete dehiscence/separation of the skin edges, delayed wound healing, and there always exists the potential for additional procedures or surgeries to address any complications which may arise.

In brief: Same as any surgery
The risks of panniculectomy are the same as any other procedure but in the aftermath of massive weight loss or when performed for morbid obesity.
There may be the added concern of poor wound healing with dehisence (separation) and infection, blood loss and blood clots which could become fatal.
