Protruding Abdomen: It is difficult to answer withot knowind your bmi, but if you are not obese and only part of your body bulging is abdomen, then you can do some abdominal exercises to help correct this problem.If not successful then you may be a candidate for liposuction.But if you are obese all over then you should be in a nutrition and exercise programme and you will lose the bulge.You may still need liposuction.

Depends on the Cause: This question is difficult to answer appropriately without more information. There are many different things which can cause a protruding abdomen (obesity, hernias, ascites, tumors, etc). These all have different treatments. It is important to see your physician who can take a history and physical examination and recommend the appropriate treatment for you.
