Prominent fat - treatment?

Thank you for asking about your abdomen.
  • One can't really tell you based on a descriptoin -
  • But if you are a normal weight and physically fit, weight loss is probably not the answer.
  • You may have a congenital ¬†muscle diastasis that can be repaired by surgery.
  • Please see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for an examination and advice.
Always consult a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.  Best wishes. Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
