Our expert says:
It is never too late to give attention to one's diet, body and fitness! If the abdominal bulge is mainly due to the op you had, then it would help for you to consult a plastic surgeon. The surgeon will be able to advise if the effects of the operation can be improved (tummy tuck) and if some of the fat can be removed by processes such as liposuction. From a dietary point of view, it will help if you lose weight in general. One cannot specify in which areas of the body a slimming diet will cause weightloss. Targeted exercises such as sit-ups from the tummy and thigh rolls for the legs, should help a great deal. You can ask Fitness Doc on this Website for specific exercises that target the tummy and the hips. Walking is one of the healthiest exercises one can use to promote general fitness and weightloss, so do start with your walking as soon as possible. Reduce your energy intake by eating an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet & Nutrition' at the top of this page, then on 'Healthy Diets' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet).
Holding thumbs that you start losing now and that the abdominal bulge will improve.
