Abdomonoplasty: Cardiovascular work up 3-4 days a week or abdominoplasty can help you with your problem. Medications can help you to loose some weight , but without exercises results will be less then optimal. Personal trainer is the best place to start.

not occur naturally. By losing weight in general some will probably be abdominal fat. But, we don't get to choose what area of body fat is lost from. Eat healthy ; be physically active. Calories burned must > those consumed. Tighten ab's: crunches, .
