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.

Yes: Like any plastic surgery or cosmetic procedure, celebrities and other people consider tummy tuck to deal with loose skin and muscle of their abdomens and waist. This is most common to restore the figure after pregnancy. Make sure you are considering plastic surgery for you to treat an area that bothers you and not to make yourself famous or be like a celebrity.

Unknown: Doctors who do their surgeries are bound by confidentiality and cannot reveal who got it done or not. So pick a guess!
