After having tummy tuck and liposuction in the same area, will the visceral fat begin to come off with continued exercise, or will the fat closer to the skin on the rest of the body be the first to come off? I’m really curious about how to get rid of visceral fat.
Getting Rid of Visceral Fat After Lipo and Tummy Tuck

Liposuction cannot remove visceral fat.
This is why it is so important to make the correct diagnosis before surgery. If the abdomen bulges because of visceral fat (fat around the gut), no surgery will help. Only weight loss. Frequent problem in men.
Diet and exercise is the only way
Your body genetically will determine what areas of fat will first be absorbed but eventually the visceral fat is attacked if you maintain a proplonged program of proper diet and exercise. Make sure your daily expenditure of calories exceeds your intake and don't starve yourself. I would avoid any fad diets because these virtually always lead to recurrent weight gain.

Diet and Exercise
The only way to rid yourself of visceral fat is through diet and exercise. The degree of diet and exercise will depend on the individual person. Persist and good things will happen. If you go on a strict medical diet like Optifast you will see results very quickly.
