6-pack abs after surgery
Im tired of trying to lose the last ten pounds and wondering if anyone here has had the 6-pack ab surgery?
jk... haha... I guess not all Canadians are funny
I read an article recently in an "Inside fitness" magazine in a medical waiting room (hence the reason I cannot give a direct quote), but it was saying that if you have had surgery which penetrates your abdominal muscles you can never have a six pack.
Ive had gastro-intestinal surgery 7 years ago, and the scar runs from 1-1/2 inches above my belly button, to 4 inches below it.
So in your opinion(s) when i get my bf low enough, will i have a six-pack, or will i be stuck with a tiny mound of fat for the rest of my days?

Yeah I also had my appendix removed a few years ago but I still have the muscle definition there's just a big scar there preventing it from looking spotless.

When I read the article it sounded like complete bs to me.
But for the last two weeks Ive been doing a serious cut, and right after my cardio sessions I can see the top two ab muscles, but there is a ring of fat that goes from love handle to love handle, and directly to either side of my scar there is a more noticeabvle amount of fat deposited. **** I hope I can get rid of it.

I too have an unsightly scar from my appendectomy 2 years ago. It looks like a little zipper compartment on my lower abdomen, like something I might keep some loose change in or something.
Suffer now.. and live like a champion later.

even if you lose the fat, you probably will need to build up the ab muscles to make them more viewable, otherwise you'll just be flat and skinny

Lacroscopic surgery helps with some operations, unforunately not all. While the scarring can be permanent, the muscles and tissues should be able to reheal pretty well back to normal. The fat loss you described sounds typical; the top two abs show up first. The lower ones are much harder to reveal, just keep working at it. You're only two weeks it, it takes getting down into the single digits to reveal the steel!

I highly doubt surgery would affect how fat comes off of you. However, surgery will definitely affect what the muscle (in this case, the abs) looks like.
