Can subcutaneous scar tissue be removed?
After 2 abdominal surgeries 9 months ago, I have developed thick, subcutaneous scar tissue resulting in a protruding abdomen. Is there a way to remove this scar tissue and flatten my belly

As scars heal they contract sometimes accentuating the appearance of abdominal fat. A photo would of course be helpful here, but my suspicion is that a minimal outpatient tumescent liposuction procedure would greatly improve the situation provided there were no hernias in the scar.
