Is it true that many celebrities get tummy tucks (witch hazel) surgery for flat abs?

Maybe: Six pack abs occur from reducing the amount of overlying fat that conceals the muscles. For women to have six pack abs they have to lose weight to the point that it might be unhealthy. Plastic surgery can help after pregnancy which can stretch out the muscles overlying the abdomen.
