With or without: Set a goal for weight loss, and set your attitude for weight loss, either with or without surgery. The free app called my fitness pal is great for dieters and exercisers. Okay to check in with your doc about dieting, and bariatric consult. There is no magic, it takes dedication, time and diligence to lose the weight. Don't give up.

Spot fat loss does : not occur naturally. By losing weight in general some may 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, reverse crunches, exercise ball crunches, pelvic thrusts, lying leg raises, side bridge & “bicycling” exercise on back. Do regular aerobic exercise.
