Can excess flab be removed from stomach?


Volume reduction in the abdomen takes different forms depending on the quality of the overlying skin.

If the skin is relatively elastic, liposuction is a good option.

When the skin has started to loose elasticity, an abdominoplasty or tummy-tuck may become necessary for contouring.

If the weight excess is considerable though, it is more appropriate to loose weigh by a different approach and then consider contouring.
