No: There is nothing to treat here. If he has a large stomach that could be why the veins are engorged. If the veins go back to normal appearance when he elevates or when he wakes up in the morning, watch for now.

Lose wt, aerobics: Probably the best way to lose tummy fat would be to lose weight using aerobic exercise such as walking or cycling. Also you can work on strengthening your abdominal muscles. If you don't lose weight you probably not have the washboard abs one strives for.
