Can plastic surgery reduce intra-abdominal fat?

Stuart A. Linder, MD
Plastic Surgery
It is important that if you hear the word "intra-abdominal fat" that you understand that you will never have a flat stomach. It is absolutely not going to happen, even with tightening of the abdominal muscles internally. This fat is entangled within your abdominal cavity, so merely tightening the muscles over it won't eliminate your bulge. I am only addressing tissue outside the muscle with a tummy tuck; I am not addressing anything within the abdominal cavity. That is an area not to be touched during any elective operation at any time.
