Obesity is usually associated with large deposits of abdominal fat. However, if your stomach has suddenly started to expand alarmingly then it is essential that you have a medical examination just in case this is due to an underlying medical condition. When you see the doctor, please also discuss the use of slimming aids such as Xenical or a gastric bypass operation with him/her.
