Fundamentally what a belly reduction is, is the removal of excess skin and fat from the middle and lower stomach as well as a tightening up of the intestinal wall muscles. Getting an abdominal reduction done will leave an abiding scar on your body, which can extend from hip to hip but will often be smaller.
