Hi, I am 30 years old. My weight is about 74 kgs but my waist is 37 inches. I have a big belly which is disproportionate to the rest of my body. I am not a heavy eater, drink occasionally and smoke about 5 cigarettes a day. my work regimen allows me very little time to excercise. This is very demotivating and am wondering if any surgical procedures are available to get rid of this big belly. I have a cervical disc herniation in and when I am in formal wear, I feel the pressure on my neck because of my stomach. I also feel that it is gradually becoming bigger. Please help with advice.
